Located next door to The White House, the historic Hotel Washington - one of the city’s oldest hotels – has been reinvented into W Hotel Washington. The luxury hotel was remodeled in 2009 and infuses bright colors and contemporary design while preserving the building’s Beaux Arts architecture. The W Hotel features 317 stylishly designed guestrooms, including 23 suites, seven WOW suites, and an Extreme WOW suite (W’s reinterpretation of the traditional Presidential Suite), a signature Bliss® spa, and the Pinea Restaurant.
The famed rooftop terrace, once the most popular destination for presidents and politicos, has for decades provided what are known as the best views of the White House lawn and the nation’s capital. The hotel hosts a special July 4th celebration each year. Titled "Boom with a View," offering an unparalleled view of the National Fireworks display from the P.O.V. Roof Terrace and Lounge.
