I've been to DC many times, but this was our first at the Willard. We went for a wedding. I did have to change rooms a few times, which is my habit, but ended up with a good sized room overlooking the city with lots of light (and a conference room attached!). Considering the rate we got with the wedding block - under $200 - I was extremely pleased, and didn't even mind that I could hear the elevator bell. The service was excellent, the hotel was quiet and elegant but never stuffy. They also did a great job on the wedding - this was not your average "hotel ballroom" event. I loved being walking distance to Filene's Basement, Border's, Starbucks, and the Metro. I've noticed fewer hotels are providing cofeemakers in the rooms these days, I guess in an attempt to get you to buy breakfast. I have to have tea as soon as I wake up, so I called housekeeping, who quickly brought me a tea kettle for no charge, but there is a charge for a coffeemaker if you want one. If you can get a good rate here, you will love it. Request a room on a high floor with a view. For contrast, visit the Marriott across the street. Oh, and I almost forgot my favorite thing: Turner Classic Movies! Very few hotels have this channel, which offers great movies with no commercials. For insomniacs, it's the best.
