We visited Washington after staying in New York and Newport Rhode Island. We arrived at the hotel at the ambassador desk (my husband is a spire elite ambassador) to find our room was not quite ready but informed that my two children should be pleased with their room. We were invited to go to the lovely old atmospheric Roundbar for...

This is a nice hotel that could use some updating. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The room was ok. The TV was on the right hand wall so not comfortable to watch from bed. There was no turn-down service despite our request for it. They brought clean towels but left room a mess, didn't empty garbage etc....The mini...

Have stayed at Willard many times and always enjoy its history and great location. This trip was more taxing than previous stays due to heavy Secret Service presence. Had to go through magnetometers and be searched every time we entered the hotel during our 3 day visit. I had to surrender a small pocket knife the first time we entered...

If you want to stay where the power elites stay when visiting the White House, this is the place. Although they cater to Heads of State and other dignitaries, they provide the same welcome attention to sightseers. This beautiful hotel has history at every turn. Our room was very spacious (not always common in a downtown hotel) and included every...

My wife and I with our two granddaughters loved the Cherry Blossom Tea at the Willard. We have enjoyed the "tea" for the last 3 years and each year it is a wonderful experience. The formal tea service is terrific. The tea sandwiches, scones and pastries were delicious. The service, as always at the Willard, was excellent. Yes, this is...

This was our fourth visit to this hotel and by far our most disappointing. The location can't be beat but service was a serious disqppointment. After a long stressful jouney to DC (our 9am acela train derailed just after departing penn station) I was looking forward to checking in and exploring the National Mall. We arrived at 2:30.

Cannot ask for a experience that is any better. Gorgeous hotel (we loved that it is 'old') and the service is simply outstanding. Of course you would expect this for the room reservation costs!! Still, we were able to WALK everywhere from this hotel. Access to the National Mall and museums. You are right NEXT to the White House!!! We...

This is a grand old hotel that has a wealth of hIstory surrounding it and wonderful accommodations. We were here with an arts group and could walk to the White House, Congress and several museums, including the Newseum, The Hirshorn Museum, the National Museum of African American History and Culture. In addition to wonderfully appointed rooms, the restaurants and bars...

Thank you for the your review. Located in the heart of Washington, D.C., two blocks from The White House and within walking distance to the city's most iconic monuments, memorials and museums on the National Mall, The Willard is incredibly fortunate to have the location that it does. Nathaniel Hawthorne even once said that The Willard "may be much more...

An exceptional experience. Beyond the ideal location, excellent people and high quality common areas, two other areas jumped out at me: sleep quality of the bed and the food from room service. Keep up the good work and I look forward to returning.

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
