We picked the Willard for its proximity to the White House, but the price was great compared to other locations and the staff was friend and welcoming. The cafe near the hotel had wonderful pastries and espresso, with pleasant open air seating.

Our family of three stayed for two nights during a beautiful Sept weekend at the Willard intercontinental hotel. We were in the oval suite which was absolutely amazing. We had booked the suite for the additional half bathroom but the views and room(s) were absolutely amazing with a clear view of the Washington monument. It would be a lovely room to host a small event in the future as the suite was quite large. Everyone at the hotel was very professional and the room was very clean upon my inspection. I want to recognize a special employee, Janet Scanlon, who went above and beyond with assistance with making dinner reservations and other recommendations for a special birthday weekend. Although there was no concierge at the time of booking, Janet was extremely helpful and to make our stay very memorable.

The willard has become a favorote of mine in DC for some time, bu lt they just went above and beyond. After checking they sent me a survey to see how things were and I wasn’t happy with the light in my room (had a small portal window not like usual) and without me even asking the manager immediately called and offered me a move to a better room. They are taking lots of saftey precautions and make sure guests feel comfortable. Thank you to the incredible mgt. at this beautiful property

Staff was amazing and during covid times took precautions. Our room was beautiful, clean, and cozy and had a great night’s sleep. Great location as it is close by the national mall, you can walk there or take scooters or bike. Amazing stay and will be staying again!
