My wife and I spent our 25 th Anniversary at the W. The staff was attentive, friendly, enthusiastic and very accommodating. From the first e mail I sent preparing our visit to the final hand shake good bye, we taken care of by true professionals. The rooms are small (huge bathroom) but very comfortable with all of the amenities a visitor will need. With all there is to do and see we were only in the room to sleep.The hotel is located right in the heart of the city and within walking distance of many major points of interest. The P.O.V on the roof is a fantastic vantage point to see the city unfold below. Spectacular sunsets! My only regret is we could not stay longer. Thank you Nate, Bob and Kim.

If you do not want to party, please avoid this hotel. At weekends it is a must for the locals who want to party all night long. The sky bar on the roof (with nice views) is filled with people who want to be seen. Rooms (with the description fabulous) are small and not very practical. Where to hang all your clothes or where to put all your things in the bathroom? Design has taken too much from the convenience and practicalities. The service varies a lot, both at the reception as well as in the breakfast room. The hotel is absolutely too pricy and not worth 4 stars!

Room Tip: During the weekend don not choose a room near the sky bar.

Wedding we attended was very nice , but the lobby bar was not prepared for the pre-wedding crowd. Food was excellent and the appetizers were excellent.

the hotel seems to care more about their business on their rooftop bar than the hotel customers.

I was on the 10th floor, and essentially under the DJ on the roof. They were very accomodating when I asked to change to a new room, but was asked "didn't the tell you when you checked it??" Really??

Even in the new room, it is difficult to get to the elevators to your room because there is a significant focus on the crowd going to the roof bar.

Stay here if you want to party, but not if you are on business.

This hotel lives up to what one expects of W. Fun, friendly staff, fantastic location, and a great lobby for people watching or conducting business meetings (so long as you don't mind background music). Be aware, however, that some rooms are small. Don't miss the rooftop bar where one gets great views of the White House and surrounds.
