W Washington DC  

Downtown, Washington, D.C., United States

Hot Spots: POV and The Rooftop Terrace with phenomenal views and drinks developed by the renowned Sasha Petraske; Living Room Lounge and Cellar Wine Bar; and a steakhouse by celeb chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten

The Business Staples: 24-hour room service; 24-hour business center; 24-hour Whatever/Whenever concierge services; modern fitness center; free drop-off service within a five-mile radius of the hotel in a chauffeured Acura MDX SUV

The Bottom Line: The gorgeous, 317-room W Washington D.C. opened in July 2009, taking over the historic Hotel Washington's 1917 Beaux Arts building. But blending the new -- fusion cuisine from Jean-Georges Vongerichten; a fashionable rooftop bar; a great spa and gym; Whatever/Whenever service -- with the old -- small guest rooms; no pool; desolate location (come evening) -- has its trade-offs.
