Originally built in 1917 as the Hotel Washington, cut through the red tape as you step into the Beaux Arts grandeur and cutting edge design of W Washington DC. Since opening its doors in 2009, this is where locals, buzz worthy musicians, intellectual elite, and innovative entrepreneurs unite. With its unparalleled location, W Washington DC is the closest hotel to The White House and stands proudly on the National Mall, blocks from the city’s top restaurants, popular museums, landmarks, congress and major business offices. Hosting everyone from presidents to politicians, celebrities to CEOs, socialites to superstars, this was where Elvis met with President Nixon serendipitously in the 1970s and asked to be a federal agent. Where Harrison Ford bought rounds of drinks for everyone. Where Presidents Clinton and Reagan attended balls. Where the President's Thanksgiving turkey trotted on the rooftop before receiving its pardon. Where calls to the White House were connected and "The Godfather Part II" was shot on the storied rooftop.
Because glamour is forever, Hotel Washington's art, music, design, fashion and culture is redefined and revisualized by W Washington D.C., in a tribute to its storied Beaux Arts past. From the sophistication of Sinatra to the charm of Chevalier, nothing will change, and everything will evolve.
