“Fabulous location!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We stayed here the last week of July, and I couldn't be happier with my decision! The location was unbeatable for walking everywhere we went. It was my first time in Washington DC so location was of utmost importance. Since my family and I enjoy walking everywhere, the Willard was a perfect fit to go to the museums and monuments. We even walked over to Arlington National Cemetery which was a bit of a hike but so worth the time!! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!

I have been at a lot of sales meetings over the last 17 years,but to come to such a beautiful historic hotel like the Willard was really amazing. The food was wonderful (I appreciate presentation) the staff especially Alex our server was something right out of the movie the butler. My room was a jr suite, I felt the bathroom could have been bigger, but again I have to remind myself this is an old hotel. The bed was extremely comfortable and my room over looked Washington memorial!!! There some construction going on during the day,but quiet at night. Staff was amazing, location was great, we even got a history lesson from the pr person in the hotel, I went to the round room, drinks and bartender where great, hope I can go for pleasure the next time the spa looked really nice.

Room Tip: Further into the floor anything close to the elevator was a bit noisy

Within a long block of The White House and there are many wonderful eateries within a half mile.
Walk down just a few blocks and you are at the Washington Monument and you can go either East to the Mall and all of the Smithsonian buildings or West to the WWII Monument, Vietnam Memorial , the Reflecting Pool amd then good ol' Honest Abe!

Room Tip: Don't stay on the 14th Street side and besure to keep your windows closed!

The Willard Hotel, located on Pennsylvania Avenue is a beautiful old world historic, luxury icon. Just one block from the Ronald Regan Building, it is the perfect place to stay when applying for Global Entry known traveler membership. By using your Platinum American Express credit card your $85.00 registration fee is refunded for the membership application. Booking your room through American Express also gives you early check-in and late check-out. Other AMEX perks include a room up-grade when available, a complimentary full breakfast and $100.00 room credit for bar or dining expenses. We were up-graded from a standard room, two levels to a two room suite! My husband and I both enjoyed a delicious dinner of beef tenderloin at the hotel Cafe du Parc. The next morning eggs benedict and smoked salmon by room service were complimentary including tax and gratuity! The Red Door spa is on site as well. My deluxe facial was outstanding. Every staff member went out of their way to give superior service. The only down side was a $50.00 per day parking charge. So skip the security lines at the airport, enjoy a wonderful elegant hotel, fine dining and a special spa treat while saving more than $200!

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 the Big Bus
(on and off type) stops at the corner.
Rooms had mimi bar (beware of the 5second rule) and a Kureg with coffee and tea and twice
daily maid service.
It's not the most handicapped friendly hotel but they try to help with small lifts and elevators.
Would we stay there again, YES

Room Tip: Front facing rooms view the Washington Monument - request floor 8 and above. There are only 12 floor...

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 occasion, this hotel is THE place to go, whether a wedding, business stay, convention, or just a weekend stay. The willard is the way to go!

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 took to talk us through all the tourist and dining options in the city.
