We come into DC for fun every few months and this time stayed at the W hotel on 15th street. Great location near the White House. We particularly enjoyed the roof top bar which has an amazing view of the White House all lit up at night. But what most impressed us was the service. We forgot an iPhone charger...

The staff is wonderful. They do have cheese, olives, crackers and brownies in the lounge and nail area. They also have water, tea, and campaign. For...

Booked in for our wedding anniversary. You couldn't ask for a better spot for sight seeing, you're a stone's throw from everything. The rooms are clean, comfy, and the shower is wonderful. The staff is fantastic. Jezebel and Isaac from the concierge team were /amazing/ and personalized our stay for us. They put together a nice itinerary, had a welcome...

...but prices are somewhat steep. But OK, the hotel is ideal for both business and leisure trips. Rooms are not very spacious but it has all it needs. Very friendly service, well equipped gym. Most landmarks are within walking distance. Check out the roof top bar!

I stayed here for a conference. The location is right across from the Hamilton building. The staff are friendly. The rooms very small and have a certain odor to them. This hotel gears for the night time crowd for the roof top club which is very noisy and busy. I am still not impressed after complaining about them 3 years...

Welcome Stentdoc, Thank you for taking the time and sharing your feedback. Our rooftop bar, POV, does attract many people during the week and mostly the weekends. I am sorry to hear that this vibe is not to your liking. The scent that you are referring to, I believe, is the W scent. the W scent is our brand's air...

We were upgraded to a corner suite. Spacious, excellent view and comfy. Had room service and food was quite good, but service a little slow and our wine order never done correctly. However the effort to correct was very good with outstanding follow up and some compensation for their error.

We came for a long weeekend. Location was amazing. While the rooms were tight, they were well appointed. The shower was fabulous and the bed very comfortable. We asked for firmer pillows as they only offered feather pillows. They didn't have any so they went out and bought two pillows for us, they were waiting for us when we returned...

The hotel itself is wonderful and the location is really great. The staff was amazing. Traveling alone with an 18 month old is challenging but the hotel was so accommodating and even let us check into our room at 9am! They had a crib up in the room minutes after we checked in. We ate at the restaurant on the...

Stayed here for the weekend. Needed to change room due to noise. Very thin wall. Was hesitant to give up outside view. Wound up with a view of the "courtyard". I actually wound up liking this room better. Seems the "x39" rooms are larger with an elevator on one side and the bathroom against the next room. No noise whatsoever....
