Elegant with a great location. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the restaurant food excellent. Breakfast Buffet, although $25 per person was wonderful and included juice and coffee. Café du Parc had inside and outside service just like a French café; it also had great food. You can walk to the White House, other restaurants, Smithsonian museums and... More

The Willard Intercontinental is by far one of the very best hotel in Washington D.C. The ornate lobby and wonderful staff- this hotel is worth the money. On other thing that may be helpful is that the willard room with two queen beds has a queen sleeper sofa. We found this out and it was an extra bonus! Whatever the... More

Perfect location for tourists. A short walk to the White House, Smithsonian Museums and the Mall. The hotel looks grand, full of old world charm and has some of the most friendly and professional hotel staff I have ever encountered. I would like to give special thanks the two concierges for their very useful advice and the amount time they... More

Haven't stayed here for about 5 years and was disappointed. For $700 for two nights I expected more. Our room was smaller than a motel room with only one comfortable chair and a very small closet. The employees are very well trained and treat one as a real guest. We had breakfast included which was a mistake. The breakfast restaurant,... More

I enjoyed my 2 night stay here for a girls weekend. The hotel has amazing history and, as others have said, it is very conveniently located. We didn't take our car anywhere because it was just so much easier to walk. The room was the size I expected from an older hotel, but clean and well-appointed with an enormous TV... More

This hotel is perfectly placed near the museums and monuments (walking distance). We have had 2 wonderful stays with the Willard. Staff are helpful and courteous, always responding to our needs. The room service breakfast is out of this world. Everything is expensive so just go in knowing that. Rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. Need a little updating to... More

very little more to say. Restaurant was awful. Sent the steak back twice. If it wasn't over hung it was off. Very tired looking surroundings and the staff were superior, inattentive and downright chaotic at times. The restrooms reminded me of those in a railway station. You need to pull your socks up Willard and look to the beautiful, sophisticated... More

We came back to our wedding spot 10 years later. Our valet and bellman definitely not pleasant. The front desk Ali made up for all of that with his warm sincere conduct. The room on the second floor comfy but VERY noisy. No hot water in the morning ;( had room service for breakfast efficient and delicious but certainly pricy.... More

We stayed here based on location and were very pleased with the services, comfort, and convenience to visit all the nearby sites. Many places to eat nearby, walk to every thing, and relax with a cocktail in the bar.
