My husband and I took a long weekend (2010) to relax before the birth of our child and found the W to be a hip and convenient place to stay.
Arrival: We arrived without a reservation. Valet service was friendly and the front desk was able to accommodate us in a room on a high floor overlooking the Treasury and White House.
I think we paid 500 or so per night. If it had not been for the location, I would say it was overpriced.
Room: Cozy and hip. Perhaps a bit small, but it was fine for the two of us. The bed was neat with a mood light headboard. Fun mini bar items. Room service was always amazing and quick. The shower was fine. I would have appreciated a bath as well, but no complaints. I am a fan of the W decor. Cute sink area. Big window. The only issue I had was that we were right below the rooftop bar and the noise really carried into our room.
Area: a few blocks from the Smithsonian museums, White House, etc.
Staff: Very accommodating
We enjoyed our stay and will most likely stay here in the future.More
