I stayed here while attending a teachers seminar in DC, sharing a double room with a colleague. We took the Metro from the airport upon arrival. It was an easy 15-20 trip. We walked about 10 minutes from the Metro to the hotel. There are many retail shops in the area (Marshall's, H & M, etc). If you sign up... More

We had a fabulous stay at this hotel and highly recommend it to anyone seeking great service, good in-house restaurants, and a convenient location to major attractions. As soon as we arrived, the valet service was quick to accommodate us with our car and luggage. The front desk staff was extremely professional and courteous. We were lucky enough to be... More

Our room was dated, the mini bar fridge was broken, and the carpet a bit musty. The bed was fine, but the bathroom was dated. The staff was very nice, the lobby beautiful, and breakfast was fantastic. I'd stay there again, but only if I got a deal on the room. Renovations are necessary.

This hotel is fantastic! The hotel is in a great location and the rooms are wonderful. But, what sets this hotel apart is the wonderful staff and service. Your every need is met from the minute you walk in the door, your luggage is quickly whisked away as you step out of the car and the wonderful service doesn't end... More

Although we live in a DC suburb we periodically book an overnight stay in the city to tour a museum, visit a monument or two, see a show. The Willard is always our hotel of choice--clean, quiet, convenient and with a touch of history. A good breakfast is the proverbial icing on the cake.

Our room was larger than expected for DC,though a variety of room styles are available. I loved the marble bathroom with tub and shower, soft towels and robes. The service was impeccable and the location was perfect. I enjoyed the history of the hotel and would definitely stay here again. We walked to several sites: Ford Theater, National Gallery, Air...

This hotel had a fantastic location. The hotel also had a great gym and good room service menu, a little expensive, but really good non the less. The room was okay, was really big, just had a little window..... Really small. Great selection of TV channels. I was just not impressed with the front desk service and the door men.... More

Me and my husband took a 5 day trip to DC for our anniversary. The hotel stay was by far one of my favorites. I am very very picky. I cannot stress how picky I am but my friends call me a hotel snob. At first I was very nervous because older hotel and hallways looked dated but it was... More

We stopped by on a weekday evening for drinks at the Red Robin Lounge in the Old Willard Hotel.The lounge has photos of political and literary figures who have graced the establishment since the early part of the 20th century. Who knew what Alice Roosevelt looked like? SMG

Strategically located, a grand hotel with large rooms and public spaces. Age is beginning to show in the quality and standard of the room furnishings. The hotel restaurant is ridiculously overpriced with standard food offerings. The redeeming feature is the old fashioned high standard conciergerie which provides exceltional service.
