We had breakfast every morning during our 5 day stay at the Willard. Food and service were excellent. If you are eating there, ask for Deepak. The location was perfect, right across from the WWI memorial and next to the White House. Easy access to the mall with all its museums and memorials.

Hotel's Favourite
The location does not get better. This hotel is located in the heart of DC, within walking distance to most attractions. The hotel itself is beautiful if a tad intimidating on arrival. However, the friendliness of the staff is incomparable. The attention to detail sells the stay. I will definitely return.

I stayed at the Willard for a quick business trip in early October. All the staff were excellent, efficient, and professional. Check in and check out was very quick. Both of my meetings were within walking distance of the hotel. The room was very fresh and felt like it was recently updated. When I was in the taxi on my way to DCA I discovered I had left my suit coat in the closet of my room. We returned to the hotel where I was given a new key, retrieved my coat and was back in the cab in less than 4 minutes. Overall, 5 star service. I look forward to returning soon.

What a wonderful experience! The hotel property itself is marvelous; it is simultaneously incredibly historic but also well appointed. The staff are outstanding - so hospitable and willing to help. Afternoon Tea in Peacock Alley is elegant and sumptuous. The Round Robin Bar is also special; the many pictures of famous patrons of years ago form a wonderful backdrop for socializing with friends and family.
