Nice hotel
Reviewed 14 hours ago

Stayed here for a conference in March 2019. Construction was underway but no noise in the room, just inconvenient getting in/out of hotel. Rooms are very small, but not really a surprise for downtown DC. Nicely appointed hotel and staff was fine.

Eh

Not terrible and not great. So so hotel with construction , limited contact with staff, zero personalization. Certainly differentiates itself from the other SPG programs, and not in a good way. Maybe yes and maybe no. I'd like to see more FaceTime with the staff and personnel actually caring and knowing their guests.

Stay away

I almost never write a review and when I do it is to praise a place. But I am writing this to help others avoid the aggravation. Horrible hotel, horrible service, smelly rooms, noisy as hell. Terrible and ridiculously overpriced.

Horrible Business Hotel
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I am in shock with this W Hotel. To be on a business trip and not have a desk/workspace is frustrating, and is made worse by the fact there is no WiFi in my room and that I have to run into the lobby to send emails from my laptop. The bedroom is tiny, and truly feels like an interior closet turned into a bedroom. The full size (yes, full) bed is made uncomfortable with a couple of layers of padding that all bunch up.

Avoid this place. Seriously, the worst.

Designers run amok or another merger catastrophe?

I have stayed at this W as a business traveler for the past 10 years. I am lifetime gold status. And today, with a recent stay - all I can say is NEVER again.

I am in a spectacular king room that is no more than 220 sq feet - much of which is absorbed by unusable space for one reason or another but mostly useless design elements. While I generally like small rooms because they feel cozy, I am literally claustrophobic in this room.

It is very clear that the designers ignored functionality.

The drawers are useless - not rectangular or even square, small and very deep - it is impossible to keep anything in them (shirts, sweaters, etc.) without crumpling them up. Hence, I have to use my suitcase to store non-hanging clothes and there is no room for my suitcase except on the floor or on the accent table (which I used).

There is no closet per se, only a few longer rods sticking out from the wall. As a business traveler on a 5 day trip, I have several outfits and there is barely room for my hanging clothing on the rods and of course they all fall off if you try to access anything in the back. There is a full size closet for the ironing board (at least it has enough room) although I have no idea where they expect anyone to put the ironing board and still have enough room to stand in place to iron.

The bathroom sink is tiny and the counter is again an odd shape. The toilet is European - looks cool but call me a spoiled American but I like our toilet seats. Why? Do people really prefer these?

The towels were equivalent to typical gym towels that barely cover an average size body.

The thermostat is completely worthless - the buttons stick into the control panel and then you cannot make any changes. A poor (cheap?) brand that clearly will need to be replaced.

The pros? The bed is relatively comfortable, although the sheets are rough. The room looks hip (although already a bit dated out of style - which is the problem with trendy designs).

If you are young and you want to stay at the "rooftop" - you won't mind. But if you are a business traveler STAY AWAY.
