We recently spent 2nights at the famous Willard Hotel in our Nations Capitol . The hotel was conveniently located and had some interesting history ( Abe Lincoln stayed there) so we were anxious to try it out. A few things to know, they have very small rooms and roomier rooms. Do not get room Rm 503, that was what was... More

This is a very classy hotel with a grand lobby and facilities, beautiful rooms, and located in the heart of DC near the White House. We walked to Ford Theater, multiple Smithsonian Museums (Natural/American History the closest), the White House, and Capitol Building with ease although the capitol does take about 20-25 minutes. Ordained for Christmas, the interior and exterior... More

We only spent one night, in order to attend a Kennedy Center event. The location is really convenient to the downtown and a short taxi ride or by foot will take you to many of the sights. The foyer was really well decorated for Christmas. The staff and reception was excellent. Valet car service was $50, but well done. Best... More

I just love staying at the Willard. It is very central and you can walk everywhere. I stayed in various hotels this year in DC and this is my favorite. I had a classic room and I can tell you that the room is huge. I loved all the space since I hate feeling in a cramped place. the bed... More

Spacious, 2 x 150cm beds, desk, chairs, good closet and enough drawers. Bathroom could have been bigger if I must thnk of something less perfect. Breakfast buffet was excellent... More

I am not a world traveler, but the Willard is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Immaculate. Comfortable. Great rooms. First class mattress, linens, overall sleep quality. White House is right around the corner. I did not have the chance to dine in the restaurants.

Spent a couple of nights at the Willard earlier this year. It was a most pleasant experience. Friendly staff good accommodation and beautiful period décor and easy walking distance for the White House and many other attractions. It is no wonder that the USA Presidential inauguration drive starts from here. If you are looking for a central hotel in Washington... More
