I went here for NYE and I really enjoyed myself. The hotel Gave is a free drink voucher so during the day we went to use it. The layout was really nice and he view was even better. You're literally across the street from the White House and you can also see the World war memorial in the distance. Awesome... More

Each time I come into town for work & to meetup with old friends I always see if I can head to the W hotel to hangout for lunch or sometimes in the evening to hangout with friends . The last few times there was a tall fellow serving me named Matt. I love his customer service & his positive... More

The view is great but the staff is incredibly rude and unprofessional. The cauliflower buffalo blue cheese is terrible And the hummus is just ok. Also to sit down you have to buy a minimum so I would expect better service and better food. I would not Reccomended POV and would find another place with a view.

We started our stay with a dinner at the POV roof terrace. I can imagine it's the best place to have dinner/drink in spring/summer. You have a good view on Washington monument and a small part of the White House. We had nice food (good salads) and the city view was nice. To keep the cold outside there were plastic... More

Undoubtedly this club got the best view of Washington DC. However at night it might get too crowded where breathing space might became scarce. No complaint regarding the drinks here but sometime they fail to serve dinner items. I went there twice during my stay at DC but always had to go out to take dinner. Finding a parking space... More

This is one of the best views in DC. You can have drinks and overlook the White House and mall. Drinks are not cheap, and they could use a couple more bartenders, but done let that stop you. The experience is really enjoyable, so buy a few drinks and relax while taking in the sites.

Read about this spot on Trip Advisor and thought I'd check it out before meeting family for dinner elsewhere. Got to the terrace just as the sun was setting - amazing view of the White House and the Washington Monument. I guess I was early - not many others were there to enjoy the view with me - felt like...

Went here the evening of the 17th to get a drink and the service here was lacking. There was no attending to people coming in who wanted a drink. Was sent basically back downstairs from the hostess. So just took a few pictures and left.

Get out your wallet, 'cause this is gonna cost you. But, the view is well worth the overpriced drinks. Surprisingly friendly and helpful bartenders after encountering the snooty hostess, who informed us that the minimum tab to sit at a table was $40 per person... what!!!??? So we grabbed a couple drinks & waited for people to leave their bar... More
