We stayed here for three days following our stay at a couple of other local Marriott properties, this was by far the worse experience of the three. They took all porters off the menu and the Hispanic guy was irking behind the bar could have...More

I was a bit disappointed in the 1331 Bar & Lounge inside the JH Marriott in downtown Washington DC. When it is closed, and you look through the glass doors, it seems to be so elegant, modern, and trendy. But when you go in and...More

I cannot express just how floored I was that this bar is part of the JW Marriot. We ordered 5 different items, and the only thing remotely worth eating was the bay fries. In addition to bad food, the service was terrible as well. I...More

There are several grand hotels with great bars in this neighborhood of downtown Washington, DC. The 1331 Bar & Lounge is inside the JW Marriott Hotel. I enjoyed this bar because of the relaxed ambience, great drinks, and attentive service. If you want a bar...More
