W Washington D.C.
Venues with Verve
Each meeting room puts a spin on stately indulgence with furnishings accented in coal-finished maple, onyx-finished cherry wood bronze, granite and dark baby calf faux leather upholstery. Begin your rise to the top through the formal staircase from the Great Room pre-function space, where elements of satin steel and dark mahogany furniture mingle with hide and vinyl upholsteries in a dazzling array of peacock, plum, brown, rainbow and black hues. You can take a peek at the camel-colored wood-framed mirror as you climb before making a grand entrance through large bronze double doors into the Great Room, a modern ballroom evoking opulent old Hollywood glamour with 15-foot ceilings, crystal chandeliers and gold columns draped with more gold. Featuring a 12 by 32 feet stage and plasma TVs on every other column, there are spectacular sights to be seen, in a scene that's ready to be rigged with your dream themes for a ball of a time. Up on the roof, our Altitude rooftop ballroom cuts a high profile with soaring floor-to-ceiling windows and an outdoor terrace overlooking that other great meeting space, the White House and the Oval Office. Set in white with a black stone fire mantle and black iron and lacquer finishes, there's no debate who the candidate for class is here.
