One of the best hotels we have ever stayed. Beautiful foyer excellent rooms and impeccable service. Would recommend with confidence. Rooms are spacious with everything at your fingertips. Bathrooms are generous. Restaurants and round bar are most enjoyable.

Arrived at Washington Reagan airport and after a 15min taxi ride we were checking into The Willard Hotel, Washington. Beautiful, old hotel full of character but with all the amenities and a perfect location for sightseeing as it is directly next to The White House. Our Ambassador status provided an upgrade although not as good as we would have liked... More

I had the privilege of staying at the Willard accompanying my sister in law,who was in Washington on business. We flew in from Canada on an early morning flight after staying up the entire night caring for a dying pet. She called the hotel, hoping for an early check in, but unfortunately the entire hotel was booked the previous night... More

Knowing that Lincoln, other presidents, foreign dignitaries, and other prominent people have stayed here added some richness to the stay. Just over a block from the White House, the architecture, artwork, and stylings are elaborate and ornate. The location, room, gym, etc. were all outstanding.

I booked this hotel for my wedding stay (wedding venue is something different but for my bridal suite and family members stayed there). I stayed with my parents for an executive suite for 3 nights and then moved into my bridal suite with my husband for 2 nights. I've stayed in a bunch of "fancy" hotels over the world, and... More

Service and accommodations are excellent. One drawback was no offer of reasonably priced breakfast. Huge benefit - it's directly across the street from the White House - Awesome Location! Also across very close is the National Mall with museums and transportation via the Metro and very reasonable taxis.

Once again this hotel does not disappoint. Rooms are clean and well appointed - despite hotel being a historic hotel. Great location for central Washington DC. Very helpful restaurant staff- they were able to seat and serve 10 people at moments notice when reservations elsewhere fell through.

I work in the public history field, so I have a soft spot for Old World hotels, but the Willard surpassed my expectations. Beautiful lobby, tastefully updated rooms, and a perfect location for exploring Washington, DC's museums and attractions. We walked everywhere (I actually lost weight despite some great meals!). We had our 10 year old daughter with us, and... More

Attended and stayed at the Willard for a wedding. The hotel is beautiful and in a great location, everything within easy walking distance. The room was large and well appointed. The reception room was gorgeous and the food was perfect. The Sunday brunch was very good and reasonably priced for DC. Overall, a great place to stay but by no... More
