I was in DC for four months doing an internship and lived on Capitol Hill. I had heard about the Willard before...a DC institution. I decided to spend a night there to see if it lives up to its reputation and to have a great time.
First off, the hotel is stunning. The lobby is truly beautiful and even if you're not staying, it's a fun thing to see....and (if you're into this) afternoon tea. That's not really my thing, but I spoke with some people and they all loved it.
Check in was nice and quick...and I got a room overlooking the Washington monument. What a great view! The room itself was very well appointed and comfortable. The bathroom was also nice with marble, a nice sized tub and I had no complaints about the room.
The food is great and I only ordered room service when I was there and every time it was fantastic.
But what really makes this hotel stand out is that it's unique and the location is unbeatable! The staff is great and always willing to help.
I am a big workout fanatic and I was very impressed with the hotel gym and it had everything I needed.
A great luxury hotel right in the middle of where you want to be! It is costly...yet the staff, food and just the whole experience make it worth it. DC has many fine hotels and this is right up there with them.
The manager should be proud and the staff was fantastic...props to the house cleaning as well.
