    Head to the roof and enjoy the cocktails/views. Better in the warmer months, but it's still a nice (and heated) view during the other times of the year. Try the Marion Berry ;)

    The hotel's rooftop terrace provides some of the best views of the White House. Sit on the main lobby's red patent-leather chairs and zebra-print ottomans, where DJs spin house music on weekends. Read more

    The elevators have three different images of Washington & Martha being very flirtatious in courtship and their lobby is ultra chic! The Bliss employees downstairs are super sweet as well.

    Head to the rooftop and enjoy the view and upscale atmosphere. More fun when it's warm out, but it's still a wonderful atmosphere (and heated) during fall/winter!

    I stay here a lot and in general I like it, the rooms are fine the gym is good, the bars and food are also good. Only problem I find is the turnover in staff, very few seem to stick around for long.

    One of the most stunning W hotels we have stayed in! No cool pool running through it, but the historic value is there. Very well kept & staff is friendly!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    The front desk could use a little work, but room service was fantastic and the views can't be beat.

    At very least get a spectacular room w/ exterior view. Great location. Downstairs always filled with people. Staff mostly friendly, helpful. Biz center was a bummer while I was there👎 No paper 2x!!😒

    Bob McKenzie: After dinner, finish it off with a drink at POV, the rooftop bar in the W Hotel. If it’s a nice night, great view(s).

    The rooftop views are incredible especially at night. It gets a little crowed at night but the atmosphere is very urban chic. The rooms are small but the location is great.

    A great scene, but make sure you're not placed any higher than the eighth floor, otherwise you'll be hearing the bass from the superb rooftop bar all night long!

    Run Don't Walk Here! Best Rooftop Bar Anywhere. View from Washington Monument to The Whitehouse. The drinks are worth the view.

    With a sceney rooftop lounge overlooking the White House, the W brand managed to inject nightclub-meets-Wonderland flair into what had been a lackluster hotel.

    Check out the Rooftop Bar. Amazing view of the skyline and White House. Drink selection is OK, but the atmosphere is chic and mucho swank-a-licious! Business types of all kinds come here to unwind!

    To get in the door, say you only want to get to the lobby bar. Then get yourself a drink, enjoy the music and wait in the line to go up to the POV lounge. (The view is amazing!)

    If you like a quiet room ask for the "42" series. Bigger baths and rooms, no view but super quiet and roomy.

    Here's a tip for the hotel. Clean the rooms daily. They made the bed but left crumbs and empty bottles and water
