The room was spacious and so clean. The staff was very engaging. There were visiting dignitaries so the lobby had Secret Service and metal detectors but everyone was gracious. The "in room" dining was excellent and very prompt. We really enjoyed the stay there.

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.

Weekend trip to DC to visit our son. We have traveled to DC many times over the last 15 years. This was the first post COVID lockdown. Different, but still a great stay. We selected the Willard, well that’s where we usually stay and the Willard is the WILLARD. Centrally located - drinks at the bar - lunch at the cafe - all great. Great hotel service, front desk & housekeeping - room was perfect - security, comfortable.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this hotel. You cannot beat the location, the stunning lobby, and the totally wonderful Round Robin Bar. BUT- and I don't go to the Willard to watch TV- but I think it's crazy that a 5 star, over $400/night hotel doesn't have a program guide on the tv. What in the world? I also think it is really bizarre there are no towel racks in the bathroom. I have stayed in this hotel 6 or 7 times so it's not an anomaly. But thde biggest thing is the tv program guide. I just thdink that is nuts.

Response from Willard InterContinental, Owner at Willard InterContinental Washington, DC
Responded 2 days ago
Dear dixiechicken2911, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. To ensure you have everything needed for a comfortable stay, a variety of in-room amenities are available for your convenience. Unfortunately, most of our in-room paper collateral, including the TV guide, were removed from the rooms as a precaution and are now available on our website. In addition, there should have been an in-room letter with QR codes for easy access. I apologize if this item was missing in your room. Thank you for letting us know about the towel rack as well: this is not a norm, and our engineering team is working on installing one in your room. We hope to see you as our guest again soon and trust that you will find all the amenities you expect from Willard. Sincerely, Nathalia Director of Rooms nathalia.lopez@ihg.com
