    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!

    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 ;)

    At very least get a spectacular room w/ exterior view. Great location. Downstairs always filled with people. Staff mostly friendly, helpful. Biz center was a bummer while I was there👎 No paper 2x!!😒

    The rooftop views are incredible especially at night. It gets a little crowed at night but the atmosphere is very urban chic. The rooms are small but the location is great.

    The hotel's rooftop terrace provides some of the best views of the White House. Sit on the main lobby's red patent-leather chairs and zebra-print ottomans, where DJs spin house music on weekends. Read more

    Not a fan. Specify you don't want a room looking out onto another brick building. Our room looked like a sex den in the worst way, bed backlit in red light, the bathroom was bigger than the room.

    Horrid if staying here as a guest. The rooms are nice but the hotel customer service is dreadful, they charge you for everylast thing and they failed misserably in making the guest feel special.

    If you like a quiet room ask for the "42" series. Bigger baths and rooms, no view but super quiet and roomy.

    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

    Hang out at the rooftop lounge if you're able to handle the loud music. DO NOT stay in the hotel. I regret my decision to stay here for 2 nights. I only got disappointment after disappointment.
