I need a downtown DC hotel and am trying to decide between the Washington Marriott at Metro Center and the JW Marriott. Are there any advantages to staying at the JW Marriott? I am in town for business, and the Metro Center location is a bit more convenient and costs a little less. But aren't the JW Marriott properties supposed to be more luxurious? I don't mind paying a little more for better amenities. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!
You've got a lot of options in DC - if you include the RITZ options, it's literally dozens of choices - and, of course, location makes a big difference. As a local, may I suggest that:
And that's just the tip of the iceberg.... ENJOY!!!!
That is a great report you made!
If a person can get a room on the concierge level at the JW, you have a historic set-up! To look to your left and see The Capital, look out to your right and see Arlington Cemetery, and all that is in between, is a fantastic experience. From there you can walk to Ford's Theater, Chinatown, The Smithsonian, Washington Monument and more.
It depends on your mobility and what you want to see. The Metro Center property is very conveniently located close to Metro Center stop - if you come out the right exit you walk a very short block to the entrance. The JW property is not as close to a Metro stop but is closer to White House and many of the memorials.
