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.
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!

... Hall a few days ago and then see the documents up close was pretty incredible. I definitely recommend this to anyone coming to DC. We looked around a bit more, but Luke was getting anxious. Mark had gotten off work by then and we head to the Natural History Museum. We had hoped to visit the live butterfly exhibit but were late by just a few minutes. We must get back before we leave because it looked pretty cool. Luke LOVED ...

Next time I think I am definitely taking one of those guided trolley tours or maybe the Segway, or maybe I should just read a guide book so I don't have to resort to remembering what Nicholas Cage said in that scene in the library!!!! Oh and in case you're wondering why we didn't vist the Capitol building it's because it was covered in scaffolding and therefore opportunities for selfies were limited. And also we couldn't remember what film it was ...

From here we headed to the Capitol and the seat of government. Undergoing a huge refurbishment of the dome, parts of the building were closed but it was still beautiful and imposing and elegant. I wish we had attempted to see Congress sitting but I learned that to do we were required to send a letter to the Australian Embassy six months ago. I laughed, six months ago I didn't even expect to be here ! Day One .. done .. and we had managed to see ...

We did not realize how massive this memorial was until we started climbing the steps up to see Lincoln. When you stand in front of Lincoln looking out you see the reflection pool, the WWII memorial, the Washington Monument, the south lawn of the White House and the White House. Every president looks out seeing the gravity of the office he holds. ...

His family are such a trashy family! We've been were he was killed and were he's laid to rest! We went up to Arlington house; it was first owned by the Custis family, built originally by the Arlington family.
