You can feel the history as you walk into the lobby and through the Peacock Alley wing of the hotel. I imagine there have been many politicians making deals at this hotel through the years being that it is only a block from the White House. I decided on a trip to Washington D.C. because I wanted to experience it...

The staff (including front desk and management) could not have been more accommodating. We had a little mix-up at check in and, to make up for it, we were upgraded to a suite that was enormous. The whole hotel was decorated for the season and everything was just beautiful. We will definitely go back!

I've stayed in a lot of DC hotels, and the Willard is my favorite - it has an excellent location (about a five-minute walk from the White House), gorgeous architecture, well-appointed and comfortable rooms (with especially comfortable beds), a truly delicious and extensive room service menu, a fascinating history, free and fast wifi with the loyalty program, and elaborate floral...

Our first hotel didn't work out (major issues) so I called Willard InterContinental and they had availability. Check-in wasn't until 4 but I arrived early so I could start sightseeing right away. I got there at 10am. Even though the room I requested wasn't ready yet, they had another one ready for me to check in immediately. The staff was...

I've been a frequent visitor to DC for two decades both for business and for pleasure, but this was my first stay at the Willard. Previously, I have stayed at the Mayflower, the Sofitel, Fairmont & the St Regis. The Willard is an historic hotel and the common areas on the first floor are stellar - posh, polished, friendly staff...

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in January. The main reason we picked the space was because of a recommendation from a coworker and the location. You can't beat the location. It's a close walk to all the Smithsonian museums and some decent restaurants. The staff are respectful and the room was always cleaned. On an number...

Everything about this hotel was wonderful: the staff, location, ambiance and room. The staff made sure we felt welcome. The room is generous and lovely, and the public areas comfortable and impressive. We will be sure this will be our #1 choice when in D.C.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the heart of the nation's capital, two blocks from the White House, The Willard InterContinental Washington, D.C. offers 335 spacious and elegantly appointed guest rooms, 41 of which are suites, that exude a unique blend of contemporary luxury and historic charm. Many of The Willard's guest rooms feature views of Pennsylvania Avenue and historic landmarks like the Washington Monument as well as downtown Washington, D.C. The Willard has been the site of many prestigious meetings, conferences and social events for nearly 200 years. With 19 meeting rooms and over 22,000 sq. ft. of event space, The Willard features unique and elegant function rooms including several ballrooms from which to choose. Discover a relaxing counterpoint to the busy pace of Washington, D.C. as you savor the fare at Cafe du Parc, featuring delicious French bistro cuisine and exquisite house-made patisseries. Reserve a table on one of Washington's most popular terraces' or dine inside in a modern, sleek Parisian-style setting. Join us for a drink in the historic Round Robin Bar. Located just off the lobby of The Willard, the Round Robin Bar has been a lively meeting place for Washington's political and social elite since the days of Abraham Lincoln. Long celebrated as one of the best in D.C., this legendary bar was known as the nexus of "Rum Row" and the "E street Corridor" -- plying its trade to luminaries such as Mark Twain and Walt Whitman. Today, this fashionable downtown spot draws a smart, stylish cross section of DC movers and shakers. The Round Robin Bar is open seven days a week, Monday through Saturday from 12 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. and Sundays 12:00 p.m. to midnight. ... more   less
