We booked a Wow Suite for the entire family. I cannot say enough about how helpful the ENTIRE staff was during our stay.

We booked a Wow Suite for the entire family. I cannot say enough about how helpful the ENTIRE staff was during our stay. Liliana at the front desk/reservations made sure we were able to apply our discount without any issues (unlike the Marriott customer service folks). The Valet staff was amazingly accommodating. They helped with luggage and even found our lost cell phone. The housekeeping staff brought a rollaway bed (suites don't have a pullout couch) and they were always there when we needed something like plates, sheets, etc. Location is PERFECT if you want to visit the cultural center of DC. The Rooftop Bar is a must for a panoramic view. Read less

Really enjoyed my two night stay at the W in Washington DC. Lobby is simple, but the the front desk staff very friendly. My room was an interior room, and was very well decorated. Had two full beds and a small table with two chairs. The lighting was futuristic and plenty of storage space for bing a small room. Loved that I could use my cell phone as my room key. The location of this hotel is outstanding. A block from The White House and 3-4 blocks from the Washington Monument. Plenty of places to eat, plenty of taxi’s/ubers, and the wonderful Metro system. Hate that hotels cost so much in this great city, but it is what it is. Read less
