JW Marriott Washington DC
Travel Blogs from Washington DC
The Society for American Baseball Research has its annual convention in D.C. this year. What a town! I've already visited the Capitol, the Library of Congress, and the Museum of American History! I was anxious to see the Capitol up close, since the last time I saw it I was only ten years old. Of course, getting in the place has changed a lot since …
First Sales Kick-off, it was a blast, meet other account manager all over the globe, to see the person behind the voice and emails we often receive.
... bball league in Christchurch on our return :)
On Sunday morning it was pouring with rain. We decided to spend the day indoors, and with the many museums lining the National Mall, we wiled away the day in the Air and Space Museum and the Natural History Museum - highlights included seeing Able, the first monkey to successfully return to Earth after traveling in space, which happened in 1959, and then the impressive ...
... cards for the week. Then Terry lost his on the crowded bus on the way home, and had to go out again to buy a new one.
We had a quiet afternoon, and have planned tomorrow's adventures. It is not so cold here, about -1, with a light snow fall during the afternoon.
These long train trips are a great way to see the countryside, and how people live, as well as being considerably cheaper than flying, but they are very very tiring.
... ribs and Luke got steak and they were both huge, cheap and so so good. Seriously exactly what we wanted and I cannot recall the last time we have had meat that good. The walk home however was pure misery, we were back in the wind and weren't checking things out just pure power walking in the doom so it seemed like the longest walk ever.
The next day, and our last on holiday, Luke slept in and I went shopping! It is so cheap here but as were aren't super flash ...

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!
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 :)
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.
