  • JW Marriott Hotel Washington DC

    This is a bustling place. Even on a weekend, the lobby was filled with folks with name tags and computers. It's next door to the National Press Club and has lots of meeting space, so it's not surprising.

    I noticed a doorman rushing in with a note a guest had left in a cab. I was surprised that a hotel this busy would worry about something like that.

    The hotel is also walking distance to the Washington Monument and the White House, so there were plenty of kids as well, on vacation while Mom or Dad worked. The kids enjoyed watching the action from the escalators!

    Location was excellent and hotel rooms were spacious but it was a bit pricey. Easy walking distance to the White House and other sights but we didn't find good choices for dinner nearby. Took a cab into Georgetown instead.

    This place has an ideal central DC location and great service. The conceriege recommended such an awesome place in georgetown for drinks and arranged cabs both ways for us. It was within a quick walk to all the monuments and museaums on the lawn. Other than the superb location its a standard marriott...nice rooms, nice hotel etc.

    One nice thing about this Marriott is that there are a variety of food options both in the hotel and nearby. I especially like the Corner Bakery that is on the corner of the block.

    The rooms are standard Marriott, but most people are here for the location, not the rooms. It's close to tourist attractions and to the business area.

    The fitness center is good-sized, and the pool was popular.

    The rooms were nice, but the crazy elevator system could take some getting used to. The gym and pool are very nice. You have to show your keys after a certain time at night so make sure you have it when you come to the door, so you don't get hassled when walking in.
