I am a platium SPG member and travel to DC fequently. I have now stayed at the W-Hotel in DC for six weeks over the past three months. I truly enjoy my stays at this hotel and recommend it for the following reasons:
Location - The hotel is in a prime location in downtown DC. It is next to the Whtie House and within walking distance of the Metro Center Metro Stop. The hotel is close to great shopping, wonderful restaurants, and most of the key tourist attractions. Try the Corner Bakery for breakfast rather than eating at the hotel if you want to save a few bucks.
Trendy - The hotel has (3) very trendy bars - The Living Room (which is the lobby), J&G Cellar Bar (soon to expand outdoors), and the world famous POV/Terrace Bar. POV was recently voted the best hotel bar in the United States for several reasons (outstanding city view, great customer service, and the trendiest people in DC. The social seen at the hotel is truly the place to be in all of DC. Make sure to wear your best, since most are dressed to the 9's.
Customer Service - The hotel has the best customer service around. The staff is always acknowledging guests and trying to make your stay as pleasent as possible. I love the staff.
Hotel Rooms - I have stayed in most all types of rooms. There are (3) medium size suites on each floor with one larger corner suite which is spectacular. The bathrooms in these sutes are incrediable. You'll have to see it to believe it. The other rooms are smaller in size but still very nice. The beds are very comfortable. Rooms are very clean. Try to get a room facing the Washington Memorial since the view is great.
Gym - The gym is average at best. Equipment is not always working but very clean. There is always bottled water and apples available.
If you're looking for a newer hotel with a great location in downtown DC, try the W-Hotel.
