The new W Hotel in Washington, DC

Just steps from the White House, behold the new, the glorious, the totally awesome W Hotel in Washington, DC, opening in July. Yes, you can make reservations now.

There are so many jokes I could make about “W in Washington” that I don’t know where to start — I’m just glad they waited until we had a new president so I don’t have to.

So, what’s special about this new hotel? Well. Start with the very first W Hotel in DC. Then add DC’s first Bliss Spa, a three star Michelin chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s J&G Steakhouse. Put it in the old Hotel Washington, and then throw in designer Dianna Wong, who has “reimagined the historic Hotel Washington, infusing bright colors and contemporary design while preserving the building’s Beaux Arts architecture.”

The hotel features 317 rooms, including an “Extreme WOW Suite,” the W’s reinterpretation of the classic “Presidential Suite.”
