Having arrived in DC from Boston where I stayed at the Revere Hotel (which included free wi-fi, shoe-shine and complimentary champagne on check-in) I was expecting a little more from a huge name like JW Marriott.
Although wi-fi in the lobby is free, having to pay extra to get it in your room seems a little backwards for what should be a "modern" hotel. The shower didn't work properly one day but maintenance fixed it within 5 minutes without me even explaining what the problem was! Seemed like it was a regular issue which they were happy to keep repairing regularly rather than solve the matter entirely.
Having said that, the location was fantastic. As a first time visitor to DC most the attractions (Washington Monument, The White House and some of the Smithsonian museums) were within walking distance. A cab to Georgetown was fast and less than $15 so it was easy and relatively inexpensive to get there.
The lobby looks fantastic and the room itself was very nice. The beds were very comfortable and allowed for a great night's sleep. Shame I was on the 3rd floor which meant I didn't have a great view from the room.
Service from the staff was great and all issues/questions were answered quickly and the concierge had a couple of great recommendations for restaurants!
