    Went to the POV rooftop bar. It's a chill and happening place even at 1pm in the afternoon.

    A great scene, but make sure you're not placed any higher than the eighth floor, otherwise you'll be hearing the bass from the superb rooftop bar all night long!

    Not to be confused with the Willard around the block

    The front desk could use a little work, but room service was fantastic and the views can't be beat.

    POV rooftop bar great if you can get a seat ..

    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.

    Corner suites for views

    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

    One of the best rooftops in DC

    Nothing fancy...

    Awesome rooftop bar, one of the best places for a drink near the White House

    Paull Young · April 27, 2014
  • Kate W.

    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.

    JG is a Jean George restaurant. Very good burger.

    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.

    Vania Niño · September 1, 2013
  • Sophie C.

    This is swanky stuff. Dress properly if you plan on going to the rooftop! They kick out flip flop wearers.

    Sophie Chung · July 21, 2013

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

    Pam R. · July 10, 2013
  • Christina H.

    Beautiful place and great for a date

    Christina Harley · July 6, 2013

    In room, we dig mod touches as well as classics like views of the White House. The real winners for us, though, are the fab amenities, from the luxe Bliss spa to the hot POV rooftop lounge. Read more · July 1, 2013

    The view from the suites are amazing. In the heart of DC

    They only like the upper class people....great in every way except service...its awful if youre not Paris Hilton.

  • Kevin O.

    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.

    Amanda G · April 15, 2013
  • Adam E.

    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

    Adam Epstein · March 30, 2013
  • Joe R.

    Great Hotel. Try to get upgraded to a corner suite!

    Joe Reardon · March 21, 2013
  • Nate S.

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

    Nate Skinner · March 20, 2013

    The rooftop bar is amazing.

    The au pair is strong and yummy. Pair it w the fritters!

    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.

    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

    Don't forget to taste Hot Apple Cider here.

    The brunch is really good here.

    Love the view and the bar scene is amazing over looking the whitehouse

    As someone said, at the downstairs wine bar, service service is either clueless or apathetic but probably both.

    Greg Yaguda · August 12, 2012
  • Bikka M.

    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.

    The music from the rooftop lounge is so damn loud you wouldn't be able to rest well.
