“Great hotel for our DC visit!”
Reviewed 8 October 2009

We originally selected the hotel for its location, pool (we were traveling with our kids), and the great rate we received. We loved it! From the minute we arrived, the staff was friendly and courteous. We wondered if the hotel would be appropriate for a family and it was. Great location close to the south end of the mall. We really enjoyed the 313 restaurant in the hotel and ate there most evenings. Great beer on tap and they actually served items (burgers, wings, sandwiches) that weren't listed on the menu. After a long day of touring, we were all happy to relax here. Pool is basic, but a great place for kids to blow off some steam.

I didn't realize how close to the action of DC we were. Extremely nice hotel. The staff were very friendly and accomadating. The rooms were on the small side but comfortable. Plenty of work room, however I could have done without the expensive internet access fee.

Located a short walk from the White House, DC Mall and Smithsonian Museums, the JW is perfectly situated to experience DC's biggest attractions.

The foyer and entryway is gorgeous as guests are greeted by a friendly a professional staff. The restaurant/lounge is trendily decorated and has an energetic buzz about it.

The rooms are well appointed, but not much different from the recently renovated Marriott properties - a disappointment when you consider the premium rates demanded by JW.

The pool is average at best, while the gym is more than adequate for a good away from home workout.

Overall, the JW is an excellent option for anyone looking for a comfortable and well appointed hotel in the heart of DC.

Modern hotel in very central DC location. Rooms are well appointed and comfortable. I frequently stay in this hotel but have learned to avoid during spring and summer. As a Gold Rewards member I generally take advantage of the executive lounge at most Marriott's. They are great for breakfast or a quiet place to unwind after a long day. But not at this location during the family vacation season! Kids running up and down the halls slamming doors at all hours, health club and pool are overrun, and worst of all the executive lounge. One or two families will take up all of the seating that will normally seat lots of single business guests, and forget about any of the food. The same families of kids will wipe the place out like a swarm of locusts.

Just returned from my first and last stay there. $570 (incl tax) per night for a small room on the first floor with two double beds. $13 more for internet. I ordered a chop salad and wine from room service. "Would you like water with that?" "Sure". It arrived 45 minutes later, small salad, drenched in dressing, $14 for a small glass of Sauv blanc, and an extra $10 charge for bottled water. I travel weekly, and have never been abused like this.

They've fixed the slow elevator problem with their new system. This location can't be beat for walking to Smithsonian Museums, White House, Washington Monument. Lots of restaurants close by, just ask the Concierge. We would skip the buffet brekkie ($50 for two with tip), although the staff was friendly, efficient and the food was good if it had been $30 for two. The room was a little small, but sufficient. The beds were really comfortable. We bid on a 3 Star or better on Priceline and got this, so were very happy. Valet parking $40/day, only to be expected. Free in and out, but we walked everywhere. Loved Fogo de Chao - if you love meat, you will love this all you can eat slow grilled Brazillian barbecue served at your table by gauchos. It's a fun night and only five minutes walk.

Location, Location, Location! Great place too stay. Close to everything. The staff there was excellent! I will be staying there again. Book in advance for a better rate.
Well worth the money.
One downfall..........dont order the pizza in room service. I am pretty sure it was frozen pizza.
