Talk about capital gains. W Washington DC, the closest hotel to The White House, is in its final stages of its full rooftop to room renovation which will be revealed in 2019. The $50 million project injects bold new cutting-edge design into the historic Beaux Arts building that has stood at the center of history since 1917. From the newly reimagined Living Room, W’s see and be seen lobby,  to all guest rooms and suites as well as the legendary POV rooftop bar with unparalleled views of the city, the new look mixes modern design with playful, only-at-W elements that pay homage to the city’s past and present. The new Welcome Desk marks the beginning of the guest experience and the hotel’s design narrative – Cross The Party Line. The large glass columns pull from the rich surrounding architecture while the desk walls express Freedom of Speech through politically charged witty and bold cartoons.

Whether you're escaping political pressures or hosting playful nights, our reimagined guestrooms and suites are the place to recharge. With a spacious studio floor plan, each of our 324 guestrooms cleverly remixes classical D.C. architecture with modern details and bold angles inspired by the Washington Monument. Modular seating makes room for surprise guests, while open-flow bathrooms, full-length mirrors, marble vanities and brightly lit boutique closets are ideal for getting glam or suiting up.

Tours showcasing the LEED sustainability features of the W Hotel are available upon request.


Now completed and ready to be enjoyed, our reimagined rooms and suites are waiting for your next arrival. Every one of our suites is designed to accommodate low-key lounging or turned up nights, with a private bedroom and open dining room stocked with a full bar. Make yourself at home with signature W bedding, liberal closet space, an oversized bathroom and limitless in-room amenities - for whatever your stay serves up.

During this time you may experience noise throughout the building on week days and on weekends.
