Would stay again!

Pros: Clean rooms, friendly staff.
Location: Location was great close to the monuments and transportation.
Very pleased with the JW Marriott - rooms were newly renovated, clean and comfortable. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel is in a great location with access to transportation and dining and close to all the sights we wanted to see. Bus stop across the street was very convenient and taxi's are always close by. Only downside was the hotel restaurant was overpriced so we only ate there the night we arrived, although the food was good.

Great DC location for a weekend stay.

Pros: The great location.
Cons: Hotel parking was expensive.
Location: A short walk to the White House, Washington Monument, the Mall, Lincoln Memorial made the spot a great one.
I recently stayed at the JW Marriott near the White House in D.C. The location was central to the monuments and museums with a great view of the Washington Monument and Pennsylvania Avenue. The hotel was clean and modern, with friendly staff that checked us in and out promptly. A great location, especially when the stay is short and being close to the sites is on your checklist.

Nice staff but hotel has problems

Pros: Great staff. Starbucks in lobby.
Cons: They need to be up front about rooms. No one should have been put in the section of hotel they put us in with the level of construction going on.
Location: Tons to do
Stayed Sat-Tues. Started out fine, place was nice but they didn't have our reservation when we arrived. The "great view" room they gave us turned out to be the only room occupied (by us) in middle of construction in rooms all around us come 7:00 Monday morning when work resumed. Monday was jack hammers. Tues morning was other power tools first thing. Hall was a maze of tools & debris. They offered us free parking for the inconvenience. Turns out we were getting that anyway because their valet ripped the driver side mirror off our car the day before and waited until check-out to inform us. Now that we're home we get to deal with getting our car fixed through their insurance claim process. There are tons of hotels right there. I'd go to one of those instead.
