Such a professional and personal experience by staff. Rooms are nice, clean, a little small -- but not for a large city. Great location. Omar in particular made our experience here extra wonderful. Rooftop bar is great. Will definitely stay here again.

Easy to drop in for the night, restaurant on first floor has tremendous food (I have indulged in the Butcher’s Pizza too many times) and wonderful cozy rooms with comfy beds. Happy to stay here anytime I’m in town for business.

Taxi driver told us the Roof Top bar at the W was best views in the city. After visiting, I have to agree. If you have time, check it out. Drinks are expensive. If you order a mixed drink, specify the alcohol. I think they tend to go upscale if you dont specify

The location of this hotel is great for seeing the attractions of DC - mall, monuments, White House, etc. The property is newly renovated, and the spaces are quite nice. The rooms themselves have a chic, modern decor. The noise level throughout the property is ridiculous. I tend to like some background music when I work, so I was okay sitting in the lobby and working between meetings late one afternoon. At around 6 pm the decibel level increased to the point that I was having a hard time conversing with a colleague sitting right next to me. The same was true at the POV bar. The view is spectactular, but a conversation was impossible. I had the misfortune of having a room on the 9th floor. The noise from the bar was tolerable on the Thrusday night of my stay. On Friday night, I got very little sleep. Read less
