Check in went smoothly. Our room was large, comfortable and well equipped. The staff was very friendly and the elevator service efficient. The one problem was room service. We ordered dinner the first night, it came quickly but nothing was more than warm. My wife ordered the strip steak and it was extremely tough (although not overly expensive at slightly...

Let me just say this hotel was amazing! Upon check-in, we were very impressed. The lobby is opulent. On the ceiling, they had cool stamps for each of the 50 states. This was a really nice touch, and it really added to the history of the hotel. The man who checked us in, as well as the concierge, were both...

Superb stay at legendary hotel. Comfy bed, spacious/spotless/silent room and a shower with enough pressure to serve as a masseuse! The bar is an absolute gem, a place where the people are great and the drinks are strong. Staff was unfailingly helpful. Definitely a bucket list place if you are traveling to DC.

Stayed in the Willard during Blizzard Jonas. Had five days to experience the hotel. It was very comfortable with a large room and excellent friendly service. If I could change one thing: I would make the bar bigger. It's a small circular room that filled-up very quickly.

The lobby is so beautiful and the elegant floral arrangement is perfection. The rooms are quite large for a big city location. Prime location for walking around town with iconic views of the white house, the capitol building.

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.

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.
