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... More

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... More

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... More

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,... More

I stayed in a junior suite on the upper floor. The room was spacious, clean and well decorated, I had panoramic view of DC. The valet parking service and front desk welcome was nice (but could be better).

This hotel was very posh, traditionally decorated but not dated, located just next to the white house and also close to shopping areas and the museums district.The lobby was very impressive and there was fast and free internet service. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Hotel is conveniently located very near the White House. It is well known as one of the best hotels in Washington D.C., Let me say first, this is an expensive hotel but it comes with all the amenities one would expect and with a tremendous location and history. It is just a short walk from the White House and the... More

Just got back from a 3 night stay. Title of review pretty much says it all. The hotel itself is very historic. Very classy marble lobby with high ceilings. Easy to imagine presidents staying here (as, apparently, they all have since before Lincoln). Decor is what I associate with classic DC - formal, conservative, nice antiques, etc. We were upgraded...
