Foursquare Tips

  • Amazing view of the monuments in DC
  • Just won 'best hotel bar in the country' AND WINNER of our 'Best of 2009' award for 'place to meet a cougar.' *rowrrr*
  • Brunch is great but the service sucks!
  • Take Dad to the POV lounge atop the W Hotel, where you can ply the old man with bottomless bellinis, show him spectacular views of the monuments, & let him graze to his hearts content from the place.
  • The whole reason to come here is the outdoor patio with scenic views of most of the downtown DC monuments. Incredible location! The happy hour food and drinks are not bad too.
  • The bar at the W Hotel is known for the best views of the city. It is more notable than the hotel itself.
  • Awesome view but the people are rude and purposefully unhelpful
  • Sunday events like yoga and brunch are a good deal. 40 bucks for entree, unlimited bloody marys and cold food bar. Service was sub par in my opinion not going back.
  • This place is a disaster. Too many proverbial cooks in the kitchen. We waited two hours for a reservation. Great view bur not worth the headache.
  • Terrible service. Been waiting for a drink for 20 min. And the place is pretty empty.
  • Quite the view!
  • A pitcher is economical for groups, but the drink choices are far too sweet for two people... like a diabetic's nightmare.
  • Beautiful view of the White House and monuments. $39 bottomless brunch on Sunday with lots of interesting items to choose from, such as sushi. Perfect for a special occasion.
  • Sick view of whitehouse an monument
  • Overpriced and overrated. Staff is incredibly rude. Go just to see what people are talking about, then go across the street to Old Ebbitt Grill for better (and cheaper!) food and drinks.
  • Terrace is nice, great views. call ahead for seating.
  • Expensive drink prices!
  • Make sure you ask for a table with chairs...we had a reservation with a view (which was fantastic) but our chairs did not have backs and my older mom couldn't stay. Also- sun was in her eyes... Ugh..
  • The buffet at POV on the roof of the the W Hotel is well thought-out and deliciously gourmet. We gave it an A+!
  • Great rooftop bar
