Fantastic and personalized support from everyone at the W DC team. I am a Starwood Gold for Life member and this hotel is definitely among the best I've stayed at. I was upgraded to a Marvelous suite (from a king room) upon arrival. The suite had a great view of the National monument. Because we were celebrating a special occasion,...

I was here last year in August for my niece's birthday and she had an amazing time due to the staff! We received a nice upgrade on our room and when she got upstairs, there was a card signed by the staff w/ a platter of fruit and cookies to wish her a Happy Bday. The room was very nice...

I worked out of this hotel for a job at a nearby White House, and found the staff more than willing to overcharge us for every single service and amenity imaginable. They were practically tripping over one another to bill us for any simple little thing we could think up. I dreaded interacting with them, and wished I was working...

Wish I were staying longer. But my suite was awesome, cocktails on the rooftop POV Lounge were spectacular. As was the crowd and the panoramic view. Service was attentive and impeccable. Dinner at Pineo was just right. It must be summer!

We spent three nights at the hotel during Memorial Day weekend. The hotel's rooftop arguably has the best view in the city (you can see the white house and Washington monument from it!). It is also very close to two amazing restaurants - Old Ebbitt Grill and Hamilton. The rooms are a decent size - not terribly small. Oddly, the...

After staying at The W, it now is!!! Let me start at the beginning. The W was not my first choice for our visit to Washington but The Fairfax Inn, Starwood's historic and charming DC hotel, was unavailable. So, the agent suggested The W. The pictures looked a little modern for my taste but, after negotiating a better price, we...

The location, the service and the rooftop bar are things that made this hotel stay great.
