I recently had the pleasure of staying a weekend at the beautiful grand old hotel Willard InterContinental. It was one of my best stays in Washington. This hotel has obviously been lovingly maintained over the years and our corner room reflected that. Everything was spotless and worked perfectly. Furnishings were in the old style of the hotel and the bed...

If you read the history of the hotel you'll want to stay there. It's in a great location for site seeing and not far from a metro station. The interior entry and floor level are gorgeous. The room we had was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The view was facing the back views of others buildings but we didn't mind....

The service was wonderful - the staff just top notch. We had adjoining rooms that were very spacious, well appointed and clean. We had a problem with our early check in, which the m get made up to us beautifully with free breakfast and an in room surprise snack. We were delighted with our stay.

We stayed at the Willard over the Labor Day weekend. The room was comfortable, clean and more spacious than I expected, courtyard view. Hotel staff was very friendly and attentive. Upon arrival at the front desk, I was offered a bottle of water. The location is superb, only steps from the White House, loads of restaurants, etc. For touring the...

Excellent stay and accommodations at this 5 star historic hotel. The total hotel experience was outstanding. Concierge Robert Watson was just like having a personal assistant. He took care of our dinner reservations, gave excellent information about the goings on in DC and was perfect with his directions to local attractions. He made the hotel stay so very worthwhile, but...

Our family spent almost a week at the Willard on vacation this summer, and we could not have been more pleased with the location, service, and level of comfort. I was worried that "historic" might be code for small rooms with dated decor, as it often is. But the Willard was fresh, with serviceable, spacious, and modern rooms. The breakfast...

Located about two blocks from the White House, the building is gorgeous inside and out. Rooms are spacious with comfortable beds and nice bathrooms. We had a courtyard view, which was very nice. The only issue we had was requesting a few small things from the front desk that hadn't been replaced in our room, we never received.

The Willard is elegant and steeped in history. Located two blocks from the Whitehouse and as a major stop for most of the HOHF buses it is a tourist delight. Rooms are spacious and facilities are great though I think it lacks gym facilities. The beds have pillow tops so are soft but do not sag. The only issue for...

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
