Reviewed yesterday NEW

A visit to Washington DC is not complete without a stay or at least a visit to the Willard Hotel. Wonderful staff, always helpful with a smile, plus the History is fascinating. Great location to visit the sites, and or join a tour which is available outside the hotel. Perfect Hotel for our visit to the Nations Capital

We booked one night, 2/25/17, through American Express Fine Hotels, excited to stay at this iconic hotel for an engagement dinner in the city, but left sadly disappointed. We were delighted checking in, it was a pleasant welcome by the front desk staff and the lobby as well as main areas of the hotel are stately and beautiful just as...

We were very happy with our stay this past weekend. The rooms were a very nice size and the staff were super friendly. Room was clean and plenty of towels available. Valet was quick to bring our car when requested. Secret service were on every floor with "important people" staying there but it was no disruption to us. Two points:...

This was an incredible hotel, inside and out. We were only there for 1 day, but it was great! It was so close to the White House, the Washington Monument and the Mall, so the family and I just went for a walk, and had lots to see! When we got back to the hotel, we ordered room service and...

I was tempted to write my review in the middle of my stay because of how excellent it was but I waited. We were greeted with smiles and fantastic front desk employees. I struck up a conversation with Kristoph (manager) due to both of us being from Germany and enjoyed the kindness/memories from him. Our first room was great but...

From the check in to check out, and attentive, polite, and professional staff. Rooms were clean, neat, and very well maintained. I would recommend again, not only for the rooms and service, but the proximity to the Mall and good dining.

Much said about this grand hotel in reviews. I had a wonderful stay but like to mention one small thing which most of the IC hotel check-in staff misses - that is to welcome Ambassador members with a welcome gift - this is a minor perk - but memorable bearing IC mark. This was not offered at check-in and not...

Words cannot express what a magnificent hotel this is. It didn't start that well since I requested early arrival and the room wasn't ready. When my wife and I returned 2 hours later the room still wasn't ready but the lady at the front desk gave us the honeymoon suite. It was appropriate since we were celebrating our anniversary. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the heart of the nation's capital, two blocks from the White House, The Willard InterContinental Washington, D.C. offers 335 spacious and elegantly appointed guest rooms, 41 of which are suites, that exude a unique blend of contemporary luxury and historic charm. Many of The Willard's guest rooms feature views of Pennsylvania Avenue and historic landmarks like the Washington Monument as well as downtown Washington, D.C. The Willard has been the site of many prestigious meetings, conferences and social events for nearly 200 years. With 19 meeting rooms and over 22,000 sq. ft. of event space, The Willard features unique and elegant function rooms including several ballrooms from which to choose. Discover a relaxing counterpoint to the busy pace of Washington, D.C. as you savor the fare at Cafe du Parc, featuring delicious French bistro cuisine and exquisite house-made patisseries. Reserve a table on one of Washington's most popular terraces' or dine inside in a modern, sleek Parisian-style setting. Join us for a drink in the historic Round Robin Bar. Located just off the lobby of The Willard, the Round Robin Bar has been a lively meeting place for Washington's political and social elite since the days of Abraham Lincoln. Long celebrated as one of the best in D.C., this legendary bar was known as the nexus of "Rum Row" and the "E street Corridor" -- plying its trade to luminaries such as Mark Twain and Walt Whitman. Today, this fashionable downtown spot draws a smart, stylish cross section of DC movers and shakers. The Round Robin Bar is open seven days a week, Monday through Saturday from 12 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. and Sundays 12:00 p.m. to midnight. ... more   less
