“Very convenient to everything”
Reviewed 20 October 2009

You can walk to almost everything! There is a coffee shop next to Filene's (one block away) that is reasonable and good food. We asked for a quiet room on lower floor, and received it. Get tickets for the Washington monument, the elevator ride is worth it. Be prepared for lots of security checks to all attractions. Annoying.........but necessary. Tickets are required for Ford theatre tour and Holocaust museum. Contact your senator or representative for a tour of the Capitol..........well worth it!

I stayed with my husband & son over Columbus weekend. The view from our room was amazing!The hotel service was great and the breakfast buffet(which was included with our rate) was unbelievable. We parked the car using the Valet which was fine for us because we walked everywhere. Everything is within walking distance. We saw all the monuments and went to the Air & Space Museum, Natural History Museum, the White House and so much more. The White house is literally down the block. We enjoyed the Avenue Grill which is located in the hotel. The food was delicious. We also enjoyed the pool at night. I will always use this hotel for any Washington trips. We had a wonderful family weekend.

We stayed here over Columbus Day weekend. We could not have asked for a better location. We were able to walk to most of the sites as well as the museums.

Room was fine but a bit dark - and the 'view' was of other parts of the building.

Took a stab in the dark and booked this hotel blindly using Priceline. We ended up getting our room for about 40/night less than the going rate. This hotel is blocks from the Mall, White House, etc. Based on the hotel star rating I had I expected a little bit more. But based on the room rate, I can't complain. The elevator system is unique in that once you hit the up/down button you have to look to see which elevator has been assigned to you (A - E). Hotel staff was friendly and the room service was good. I would stay at this hotel again.

The J W Marriott is a beautiful, clean hotel with a great location and a high price. I was happy to pay that nightly price but I quickly found out that every little thing is an extra charge.

We pulled up and the valet let us out of cab and loaded our bags onto the cart and got us to the front desk. TIP. Then then Bellhop took the same cart up to our room, TIP.

Internet is $15 a day. Parking is $40 a day.

GET THIS. The Mini Bar has sensors so that if you move a can of coke they sensor tells the front desk and they charge you for the soda. We made the mistake of putting our leftovers from lunch in the mini fridge and removed their items. We put them back but the bill had $60 of extras on it. Then they charged us $35 for a room service that wasn't ours.

We did get all the charges removed and the front desk person told us, "of course we could have given you a mini fridge if you had only asked for it." What he didn't tell us was that they would have charged us a nightly fee for the additional mini fridge.

So if you want a close in hotel that is supposed to be "FULL SERVICE" at ala cart pricing, stay here. I'll be staying at Fairfield Inn where they put a minifridge in the room and internet is included.

The J.W. Hotel in Washington D.C. is in a prime location- close to many major DC attractions, as well as the Metro Station. The hotel is on-par with many Marriots, but the JW brand brings it just a step above. The rooms are standard Marriots- great linens, good pillow variety, nice soap, shampoo, etc. There's a very expensive mini-mini-bar. The views are nice, while not outstanding, they are pretty. The lobby is large, and fruit-flavored water is offered during the day.
