What you would expect from an upscale Marriott in downtown DC. Very plush with a very accommodating staff. Near the WH and Metro. Only drawback (like all of DC) parking is a problem. Take the Metro in from outside the city.

Convenient to many downtown attractions, included the National Theater (around the corner) and several monuments. The hotel was clean and well designed. Great first impression with staff greeting you outside. Rooms were clean and a nice size.

You don't often get to stay on Pennsylvania Ave. like the other notable residents there, but this is one way you can. From the Concierge Lounge and some of the rooms you can see the Washington monument just like your neighbor at number 1600. Hotel has a nice "luxury" feel and quite a few amenities in the extensive lobby areas,... More

The staff at the JW Marriott was very helpful. My friend and I had no problems checking in or out. The room was very clean and neat. The view was not great but I think the hotel's location is the major draw, it is about a 10-15 minute walk to the White House and the Washington Monument. Parking was a... More

Tremendous value. Great location. A very ugly hotel from the outside -- circa 1980, I would guess. Rooms have been updated. The interior is perfect. Looking out at fantastic views --which includes the Washington Monument. Great value. We booked a room for less than $175 / night with "kids eat free" option. (Eat in the restaurant's bar).

The hotel is ideally located nerby all city landmarks, check-in and check-out very quick and efficent, the staff was very attentive and helpful. The room was very large and comfortable (we were a family of four), well equipped and with a very nice style. Breakfast buffet is having a very large selection and good quality.

I must've hit the jackpot because I got a room for less than $150/night at this hotel last August. I have to say that I was very impressed. The rooms are super elegant, upscale, and comfortable.
