The Willard is in the best location for anyone visiting the city. The rooms were well-kept, clean and the service was impeccable. We reserved our rooms through Priceline, so we got a really great deal and we still managed to get rooms that provided a view of the city. On our last night in the city, we did a walking... More

We absolutely loved the experience. The cleaning staff was friendly, professional, and did a fantastic job keeping our room clean and fully stocked. The concierge provided excellent directions and a smile each time. The front desk attendants went out of their way to make sure all of our needs were handled, that we had the precise type of room we... More

This is a very good hotel. It is unusual in that it has lots of beautiful features that you would expect in a hotel that is much older but all the features are in excellent condition, a testament to the money spent on keeping the hotel in perfect condition. It is also perfectly located for the White House, the monuments... More

The Willard is an amazing hotel. I have been able to stay there on several occasions and it doesn't get much better. The front desk staff is terrific, the rooms are great, amenities and the service both top notch. It is expensive but worth it. The location is superb too. Be sure top have a drink at the bar, place... More

This was a wonderful hotel. What a return to a bygone era with modern conveniences. The front desk staff was very friendly and accomodating. We haven't experienced such nice customer service in a very long time. Our room was roomy and the beds were comfy. And, the best part was it was close to everything we wanted to see and... More

The staff go way over and beyond to make your stay comfortable and we were greeted with a smile and a hello by every staff member. The front desk staff was helpful in... More

Good upper-mid-range hotel for Washington area in a very good location for walking the District. Staff extremely friendly and professional. Rooms clean and well appointed. Hotel restaurant convenient, but not a destination in itself - plenty of other really good eating places in all price ranges within a short walk. Will definitely consider staying here again.

We stayed at the Intercontinental Willard for one night during spring break. We booked the Executive Suite with two double beds. We arrived late at night. Check-in was quick, however, my IHG Platinum status was not acknowledged at all. Unlike other IHG hotels, I was not given the option of points or a welcome amenity. We booked a breakfast package...

Enjoyable and comfortable stay at the Willard overall. However, on our second day, they didn't start cleaning the room until 4:45 p.m. We had been out of the room since before 9:00 a.m. and starting the cleaning so late was a major inconvenience for us as we needed time to get ready for our evening guests. On the plus side... More

Thank you for your loyalty to the Willard InterContinental. We enjoy building relationships with guests such as you. On behalf of housekeeping, I apologize for the late start in cleaning your room. I hope they at least gave you extra chocolates! I am happy that the temperature stayed at just the right level for you. I apologize for the mishap... More
