Welcome was a bit stiff. Room was very nice. This is a very old-fashioned grand dame type of hotel - if you are looking for major updates this is not your option. I had trouble with the Keurig coffee maker in the room - I fiddled with it forever and could not get it to work. But I must pay... More

I am an Ambassador (the Intercontinental and IHG loyally program) member and unfortunately write this review based on my observations during my stay. The hotels overall standard is well below expectations (especially intercontinental standards). Checking into hotel was straightforward. Floor hallways were dirty. At first I though it was just dirt that accumulated on that day, but given I stayed... More

I booked the Willard Intercontinental in DC based on reviews I read and was thrilled when we arrived because it was just as impressive as it looked online. We checked into a beautiful double queen room. It was amazing! We were thrilled. Had a sofa and big desk and we left for the day and went on a great tour... More

We Did not stay here but wandered through it and read the history of this hotel. The public areas are fabulous and give you a bit about its past and present glory. ML king was said to have written his speech here than walked down the National Mall and stood before the crowds at Lincoln Memorial to say it.

I absolutely loved this hotel. You can truly feel the history here and the location is a perfect walking distance to most of the attractions. I was happy that I chose this hotel and not the W Hotel next door which has a rooftop bar and the music could be heard around the block, luckily it did not reach our... More

Excellent location, posh lobby, good service, nice room, cushy beds. Access to in-room fridge and more counter space would have been helpful. We greatly appreciated the early room check-in. Overall, excellent stay.

It was a short stay - I arrived at midnight and checked out at 8 am for a business meeting - but the Willard made a memorable impression. Gorgeous, historic hotel. Even at midnight, front desk agent was cheerful and efficient - thank you. I ordered room service breakfast since I had to leave so early, and it was delicious,... More

After many years of being a loyal member of IHG, it is the first time I feel that I have to leave a bad review. My stay was prepaid with points, a couple of days after the check out I found out that my credit card was charged for a stay. I contacted the accounting, spoke to Karim who said... More

Probably the best location to visit White House, the Washington Monument, and the museums. Many fine restaurants and bars are located around the hotel. The W Hotel next door has a wonderful open air bar on the top floor just in case you want to club. The interior of this hotel has beautiful carpeting, a wonderful whisky bar and wonderful... More

I spent 3 nights with my family at this hotel. First off, this hotel is in the heart of downtown, a single block away from the White House, and we could walk to 90% of the big attractions in 15 mins or less. Amazing! The hotel has an incredible, historic, grand look, with tall ceilings and chandeliers everywhere. The room... More

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
