Had a great weekend in the Nation's Capital and it was aided by a great hotel in the perfect location. A shout out to Saba & Nazia for making the stay extra special as it was my wife's birthday. The location couldn't be better being in walking distance to, well, everything...

Stayed at the W DC - has to be the smallest W hotel room in the entire chain - could not have been 200 sq ft. Made the London SoHo W look spacious. No desk, no room to step out of the shower, no closet, sink is next to the bed. The staff are great and the location is perfect / but the JW and Intercontinental are close by. Never again.

However, the rooms are teeny tiny with barely enough to walk around bed. Zero view. After one night, I went to front desk early in the morning to change rooms. Surprisingly, one… Read more
Stay for the hotel--great location, close to Monument and across from White House. Quick couple of block to Trump Hotel. Rooftop bar is great for viewing and dining. However, the rooms are teeny tiny with barely enough to walk around bed. Zero view. After one night, I went to front desk early in the morning to change rooms. Surprisingly, one was available. Huh, why not last night. I moved from cramped room with one chair to a room with two beds and actual seating. Still no view though. Read less
