    Check out the Rooftop Bar. Amazing view of the skyline and White House. Drink selection is OK, but the atmosphere is chic and mucho swank-a-licious! Business types of all kinds come here to unwind!

    Call ahead and reserve a table on busy nights. Ask for a table with a view inside if it's cold. Emme raves about the S'mores drink.. Read more

    Hanging with friends at The W. Great view of the White House & Monument.

    With a sceney rooftop lounge overlooking the White House, the W brand managed to inject nightclub-meets-Wonderland flair into what had been a lackluster hotel.

    Leave before midnight... it gets ugly after that.

    Outstanding view from the bar. Expensive but delicious and heavily poured dark & stromies once you get up there.

    Free public bathrooms here. Just look confident, not too touristy, and don't ask where the free public bathrooms are.

    Go to the rooftop bar. Reward yourself with a glass of champagne.

    The glass showers are hot! Love all the welcome agents in the lobby greeting me.

    Amazing service, beautiful rooms & hip rooftop bar! A must stay if you're in need of a room for the night

    Horrendous service at this hotel. The rooftop is overrated. The gym stinks. The wifi in both: rooms and common areas is abysmal. The cider in the lobby is soothing, however

    Great bar in the lobby, wonderful rooms and a sweet view of the skyline from the rooftop bar. Always feels super swanky in here. Read more

    If you're hungry in the middle of the night, you can grab a quick bite at the Hamilton across the street

    Amazing views from the rooftop bar. Worth the elevator ride!

    Great space, annoying tourists, expensive drinks.

    Right in the heart of some of the best sight seeing in DC - literally across the street from White House!

    Per the manager "you cannot use the stairs". Elevators hold 5 people. Be prepared to wait a long time!

    rooms = cozy-cozy. Bliss products everywhere. fast wireless. great service at this hotel—except for in the restaurants (food's good, tho).

    To get in the door, say you only want to get to the lobby bar. Then get yourself a drink, enjoy the music and wait in the line to go up to the POV lounge. (The view is amazing!)

    Free bottled water can be located in the gym.

    The rooms are small but the service is more than adequate and the rooftop offers a really cool view of DC and northern Virginia

    Kevin O'Connell · May 9, 2013

    The spot where we photographed are Winter 2012 lookbook, act like you know!

    Here's a tip for the hotel. Clean the rooms daily. They made the bed but left crumbs and empty bottles and water

    Joe Schneider · April 25, 2013
  • Amanda G.

    Bathrooms are located on the lower level. Good place to stop if you're sightseeing and need a place to rest.

    If only the service matched the beautiful property. I can't decide if the staff is clueless, indifferent, or both

    B fashion 4ward & confident! Get past the elevator nazis w ipads 2 the "always booked" POV. Don't b pressured by pushy waiters. Not 4 over-priced drinks. Get YOUR seat & soak in unparalleled views.

    It's way too dark in the lobbies. Not sure what effect they are attempting to achieve. Maybe they want to be the "it" place for having an "on the side" meeting

    One of the most stunning W hotels we have stayed in! No cool pool running through it, but the historic value is there. Very well kept & staff is friendly!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    Head to the rooftop and enjoy the view and upscale atmosphere. More fun when it's warm out, but it's still a wonderful atmosphere (and heated) during fall/winter!

    APA · November 15, 2014

    Head to the roof and enjoy the cocktails/views. Better in the warmer months, but it's still a nice (and heated) view during the other times of the year. Try the Marion Berry ;)

    Restrooms are towards the back in the "library" area.
