I LOVE LOVE LOVE this hotel. You cannot beat the location, the stunning lobby, and the totally wonderful Round Robin Bar. BUT- and I don't go to the Willard to watch TV- but I think it's crazy that a 5 star, over $400/night hotel doesn't have a program guide on the tv. What in the world? I also think it is really bizarre there are no towel racks in the bathroom. I have stayed in this hotel 6 or 7 times so it's not an anomaly. But thde biggest thing is the tv program guide. I just thdink that is nuts.

Hotel's Favorite
The location does not get better. This hotel is located in the heart of DC, within walking distance to most attractions. The hotel itself is beautiful if a tad intimidating on arrival. However, the friendliness of the staff is incomparable. The attention to detail sells the stay. I will definitely return.

The hotel is beautiful. It's an old building with historic significance. The room on the 12th floor was lovely for a three-night visit to DC. It's centrally located, close to the mall, the White House, and a metro stop. As we have not been on a vacation, we splurged on the hotel and enjoyed every bit of it. Morning breakfasts were excellent, albeit pricey (as is everything in DC, nearly). It's a better restaurant for breakfast than for dinner. Breakfast was lovely outside. We really lucked out with the weather. I loved the museum of the hotel at the back entrance. Peacock Alley is lovely place to sit and talk. The staff was exceptionally helpful. The bar is great for another look at history--it was Ulysses S. Grant's favorite place for spirits.

It is a beautiful hotel with some great event spaces. The rooms was clean and comfortable with real marble and so on. Staff were friendly and professional. However, I was disappointed to have to wait a *long* time to collect luggage we had stored. There didn't seem to be enough staff working. I was also a bit astonished to have to search for outlets to plug in my phone. It's 2021! It's a five-star hotel! There could be outlets, maybe even usb ports in accessible locations. I do very much appreciate that we received two bottles of water in the room and that wifi is free. I didn't feel like I was being nickled and dimed. So it is nice, but at this price and class is perfection too much to ask?Also, not really ideal for family with a young child like us.

We had an excellent stay at The Willard - room was very spacious and was what we had hoped for in a Junior Suite. Perhaps the highlight of the experience was Robert Watson - the best and most helpful concierge I have ever met. Helped with museum passes and tickets - and with lunch booking. An absolute gem.
