Ideal location for Cherry Blossom Festival attendees and Smithsonian museum-goers
Expensive parking fees
Surrounded by the hustle and bustle of downtown D.C., the JW Marriott makes a great jumping off point for exploring the nation's capital. Located within a few blocks of the National Mall, this Marriott outpost serves as an ideal location for Cherry Blossom Festival attendees and Smithsonian museum-goers. Recent guests also love that sightseeing favorites, such as Ford's Theatre and the White House, are just a short walk away. The recently renovated guest rooms include new decor and modern amenities like flat-screen TVs and minifridges. The hotel's two tasty restaurants also fare well with travelers, though some recent visitors do say the service can be spotty. If you're a member of the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program, you can use or accrue points by choosing to stay here.

Critic Reviews



From the location near the White House to the views from the top floors, it's hard to forget you are in the nation's capital when you stay in one of the beautifully furnished rooms here.



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.



Conveniently located two blocks from the White House and the metro center makes this full-service convention hotel ideal for business and leisure travelers.
