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...

Feel the history as you enter the legendary Willard - dubbed the "Residence of Presidents". As you push through the heavy revolving door, a great feel for the past overcomes you given that the original details and lighting are still in existence and polished to a fault. Centrally located to all the sites (the major reason we selected it), we...

We spent three nights last October in this beautiful historic hotel. From the minute you walk in, you can't get your eyes off the beautiful, grand and amazing lobby ceiling, the flowers, everything. This lobby is just splendid. Check-in was fast, pleasant and easy. If you are visitng D.C. (as a tourist I mean), location can't be beat. You are...

We had an excellent staycation at this excellent location in DC. The check in was quite efficient and friendly. The staff upgraded our room and provided some nice fruit in our room. We had a nice view with the huge windows. The bed was excellent as were the toiletries. Unfortunately, we could not enjoy our sumptuous bed as much as...

Not the first visit to the Willard. A short walk from the Metro Center Metro Station. Weekend visit. Willard Room, 1015. Foyer entrance, bath and shower, king size bed and view of the courtyard. The front entrance is grand but I prefer the quiet street entrance off F ST NW with elevators. The buildings in DC are limited in floors...

The location and building are fantastic, and the rooms are great: grand, comfortable, spacious, nicely-furnished. But, aside from those surroundings, it really doesn't feel like a top-quality hotel. Just a rather typical American chain hotel, with all the associated downsides. Basically, there's no class - just a lot of rather crass commercialism and not very memorable / average service. This...

Beautiful and historic building made my stay in DC a wonderful experience. It was in the perfect place for my conference but even better for exploring. The staff were attentive and very pleasant. The Round Robin bar was the perfect place to watch debates. Beds were very comfortable.

What a wonderful experience, from the bell staff to room service and everything in between. For a city hotel the rooms (two queens ) were very spacious. Location was perfect! Two blocks from White House and less than one mile to all the sites. Our family loved the bedtime cookies and the quality of room service. Being an Intercontinental Hotel,...

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
