Built in 1917 across the street from the White House the W is the closest hotel to the First Family. Hosting everyone from presidents to politicians, celebrities to CEOs, socialites to superstars, this was where Elvis met with President Nixon in the 1970s, where Harrison Ford bought rounds of drinks for everyone, where Presidents Clinton and Reagan attended balls, where the President's Thanksgiving turkey trotted on the rooftop before receiving its pardon, where calls to the White House were connected and "The Godfather Part II" was shot on the storied rooftop.The property also features a spa and fitness center.
