Nice modern rooms but noisy! The walls are thin and they need to warn guests about construction. Construction started before 9am on weekdays and 10am on weekend. hardly got any sleep especially on the weekend when they started making noise at 8:30am. Also my TV and remote didn’t work -despite telling front desk it still continued not to work or they didn’t actually come up to the room and fix while I was out like they said they would. It’s too bad, I really like the modern rooms and service was good, but I won’t be coming back here or recommending due to the lack of warning or consideration for the construction noise. It really disrupted my trip. Read less

My husband and I wanted to see the W Hotel and possibly stay there on our next trip to DC, We were told about the POV restaurant and bar on the roof top and the incredible view. As we approached the hotel Ronnie greeted us with a warm friendly smile and a gracious offer to assist us. I told him we wanted to go to the roof top area and see the view. He was so kind and not only held the door for us but he escorted us to the area. My husband and I really appreciated his professionalism and positive attitude. The W Hotel is not only beautiful but it is people like Ronnie who make you want to stay there. Looking forward to making a reservation at your grand place. Read less

Zulma in the lobby was just so fantastic. Made us feel right at home. She’s why W brand is so powerful. The champagne was such a nice touch as well. Zulma is a pure pro. Hopefully this review makes it to her leadership team.
