    Historical Traveler Reviews JW Marriott Washington DC

    Family of four


    My family and I stayed at the JW Marrott. The pool had too many rules, no jumping in, no running, no diving, no hottubing, so basically no having fun. The food was great, I loved the location and the room wasn't bad.

    Great Hotel


    I checked trip advisor before planning my trip to DC and I'm glad I did. I read other reviews of what a great hotel this is and I have to agree. For the $99.00 rate, you can't get better accomodations that are so conveniently located to everything. The Old Town Trolley (which I highly recommend) stops there. There is a small shopping mall located in the bottom floors and it is a very short walk to the metro station. The hotel is emmaculate and the staff is very friendly. I will stay there anytime I am in the DC area.

    I'll be back!


    I just returned from a weekend at the JW Marriott with my 11 year old twins...I do love the hotel! The location is within walking distance to everything. The food in their resturant was well prepared. and the servers were great. A Sunday brunch or Sunday lunch buffet would have made the resturant perfect. The doormen and bellmen were EXCELLANT and my most favorite employee was Sharon on the concierge desk. She went the extra mile for everything I requested of her. Ask for Sharon! My only complaint...the bathrooms are too SMALL!

    JW Marriot a great place to stay


    Our family loved this hotel. Great view of Pennsylvania Ave and up to the Washington monument. Wonderful/helpful staff. Rooms are well appointed - they are small but for a family of five staying in one room it was manageable. You can't beat the location - 2 blocks from the White House and walkable distances (even for a six year old) to the museums. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

    Marriott is a very special place


    the employees at this hotel were very helpful, especially the registration desk. Security was wonderful.

    Will definitely use this location my next trip to DC

    JW Mariott Hotel Washington DC


    I stayed at the JW Marriott the first week of July and it was

    wonderful;the front desk allowed me to check in at 12pm instead of

    4pm,the room was sparkling and I got the room for $69. on Priceline!

    Very Nice Hotel


    The JW Marriott Hotel is a nice hotel near the White House and downtown Washington DC attractions. Many good restaurants in the area and the metro station is about 1 block away The service was excellent in this hotel especially from the Bellman.and the front desk was able to accommidate my requests for a refrigerator and room with a good view at no additional charge.The room was spacious, comfortable, clean.The hotel lobby was elegant as well.1 important note: Ask for a room with a view. If not u may receive a courtyard room with no view of downtown DC1 negative. The hotel is connected to the National Place Shops. However the stores and restaurants are often closed by 5 or 6 PM and a number of them appear to be permantly closed. Don't book the JW Marriott hoping to have a great shopping center next dooor and or connected

    A nice retreat in the middle of DC!


    I get to stay in this lovely hotel for a bargain, at $70 a night! *Gotta love that Priceline* Stayed for 3 nights here during the Memorial weekend. Service with a smile from the moment you stepped into the door. You cannot get a better location than this.. it is smack dab in the middle of everything! Room is great.. great for couples. Nice amenities. Only complaint is they use goose down pillows and I'm allergic to them :)

    JW Marriot DC is for family stay


    Checked in mid week place wasnt very busy,then came the weekend got loud & very busy. Even with all the happenings at this hotel the service remained great from the bellman (David) who was very nice & helpful, to the concierge who was there for all that I could ask. About my room, we took the two teens with us, I requested a rollaway. It was in the room before I could get upstairs. This hotel has a secret that I'm sure would be helpful to you all the 14th & 15th floors are concierge levels that give you extras that my family just took full atvantage of. We got a corner room that gave us alittle extra room it faced Penn. ave. the Washington Mon. is right in front of you, the President flys right in front of you the Reagan Bld. is right in front of you. You get the picture. If youre traveling to sight see with the kids stay here (corner room 15th floor) walk to White House.

    Excellent Hotel - Read for Positives/Negatives


    I stayed at the JW Marriott on Pennsylvania Avenue for a convention. Here is my opinion of the hotel...


    (1) Very professional, helpful, friendly, and accommodating front desk and concierage staff.

    (2) Location was perfect - Located close to the Metro line, White House, and many other fine restaurants and attractions. Also, connected to The Shops at National Place.

    (3) 1331 Lounge in the hotel was a great lounge to just relax and have a cocktail. I found it to be less expensive (for drinks) than other similar places outside the hotel.

    (4) I ordered room service and it was great. Reasonably priced and beautifully presented.

    (5) Room temperature was great, hot shower, stylish room furniture, very comfortable beds, great maid service.


    (1) Room was smaller than expected.

    (2) $25.00 a day to park your car is quite expensive.

    (3) Weird hotel layout, sort of confusing.

    (4) One staff member at 1331 lounge was not friendly.

    (5) Most of the shops in The Shops at National Place are closed or ones that you have never heard of.

    I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for. This hotel is worth the price. The negatives I listed are very minor. I recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Washington DC!

    Hotel is nice, we had a look around the Union station shops and had a quite afternoon, relaxing. At the corner bottle shop a lovely man from Alabama told Paul his daughters were checking out the drinks! He meant ME and Kate. Those southern men are very ...

    ... and when there are far fewer tourists around). We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, but were completely exhausted by the end of the ride. The bus dropped us off at the Gallery Metro stop, so we did not have to change trains on our trip home. We arrived back at the trailers about 11:45 PM, and immediately collapsed into bed. 18 hours of touring was too much, and we were definitely "runnin' on empty".

    ... and unfortunately we only had time for one, so obviously we chose history, especially since there was a dinosaur section. We were jumping for joy. Armed with our metro smart cards, we found our way round this city pretty quickly. The museum was located on the National Mall and as it has the space of eighteen football fields, we found it pretty quickly. All of the buildings we had seen so far had beautiful architecture and we were so excited to be here. It was packed, but what ...

    This weekend was special because of Easter, and the National Cherry Blossom festival which takes place close of the Jefferson Mémorial. There were various activities like Japanese dances, different styles of music, ...

    ... members who were on the wall. It shows that history really effects the present and that people do not forget. We got a quick view of the White house before heading back to the car. It had been a long tiring day so we looked for the nearest Wal-Mart to spend the night which ended up being in Fairfax, Maryland. It was a nice drive through the city and through some small towns and it ended up being a very quiet night, or maybe we were just so tired we didn’t hear all the ...
