I was part of a large group package so hopefully did not pay full freight for this stay. That would be way out of my personal budget! Perhaps my expectations were too high: the room was very spacious but with really chipped paint in the bathroom; loved the Keurig coffee maker but it was the third morning before we had... More

Overall this hotel was fabulous. The location could not be better. Close to the White House, the Mall and museums. The decor was lovely and was well-maintained. The room was spacious and well-appointed. Service was excellent in all areas. There was an issue with the A/C. No matter how low we put the temp it would not cool off. This... More

Being able to walk to all the major attractions in DC was a huge perk about the Willard. The rooms were nice and clean with ample space for three of us. The historical aspect of the hotel is pretty cool too. Only complaint is that we requested a rollaway bed when booked and told it would be provided at the... More

This hotel is elegant, well maintained and in a perfect location. It is walking distance to the WhiteHouse, the Mall and many museums. The rooms are large and the service is excellent. There is a keurig machine in every room. The Cafe du Parc serves an excellent buffet breakfast and is available for drinks throughout the day. During our stay,... More

I reviewed this hotel earlier but wanted to add a picture. This was the view from our windows at dusk. The area shown was not noisy, just a peaceful, lovely scene. The windows opened a few inches but in the summer it was far too hot to enjoy the outside air.

Pros: 1. Service. 2. Location, walking distance to everything. 3. Size of the room and its decor. 4. How clean and well maintained the whole facility. 5.Cafe Du Parc. Cons: none if you will be able to book it with discount price.

Probably everything that there is to say about the Willard has been said. From a tourist perspective, you can't beat the location (shared with the JW Marriott and W hotels). And the historic atmosphere is also unbeatable. The staff is appropriately trained and delivers 5-star service. We had a two-queen room that was enormous (but lacked the sofa sleeper another... More

This old hotel is beautifully refurbished and has a very historic feel to it. Always stay here when traveling on business in DC. Room was lovely and spacious. Very centrally located for whatever you plan to do in DC. Service at the front desk was a little slow but other than that, no complaints.

Exceeded our expectations for a 40th anniversary celebration. Long-time fans of grand old hotels, we sought a venue with history and elegance. The Willard delivered! We asked for - and were granted - an upgrade to a suite. And WHAT a suite it was! Huge and lavishly-appointed. We got a glimpse of a "standard" room and saw that we would... More

We stayed here the last week of July, and I couldn't be happier with my decision! The location was unbeatable for walking everywhere we went. It was my first time in Washington DC so location was of utmost importance. Since my family and I enjoy walking everywhere, the Willard was a perfect fit to go to the museums and monuments.... More
