Washington DC JW Marriott Hotel

The JW Marriott Hotel On Pennsylvania AvenueThe JW Marriott is one of a handful of privileged hotels that rubs shoulders with the White House - among the others are the Hay-Adams, W, Intercontinental Willard, and Sofitel Hotel Lafayette Square. The 772-room Marriott is big and practical but, unlike the others in the immediate vicinity, neither historic (it was built in 1985) nor particularly elegant. It looks like an office building on the outside; inside the lobby it could pass for an upscale shopping mall, with a three-story atrium lobby, lots of escalators, a gift shop, and a Starbucks.

That said, the guest rooms were renovated in 2006 and still feel fresh and modestly luxurious. Standard rooms are an adequate 300 square feet, which is about average for Washington, but the bedding is high end, the carpeting is remarkably plush, and the up-to-date electronics include 37-inch flat-screen TVs. The amenities, meanwhile, are better than adequate: a 30-foot-long swimming pool and a full-service, 24-hour business center with an attendant.
