My mother came to visit my sister and I who both live in the Washington DC metro area. We decided to go to a concert at the Warner Theatre nearby and stay downtown for the night. Since the Willard is a pretty historic and famous landmark close the White House we chose this hotel. It was WONDERFUL. Upon our arrival the room wasn't quite ready, so after apologizing for the inconvenience they asked if we would like to enjoy a complimentary cocktail at the bar while we waited. We took them up on the offer and went to the Round Robin bar just off the lobby - fantastic! Great service, great atmosphere. I received a text when my room was ready and we headed to our room. It was a very nice spacious room with very comfortable beds. Later in the evening we asked about reservations for Brunch Sunday morning at the Café du Parc. The restaurant was already closed but they still managed to get us penciled in for 12pm. I can not say enough about how hospitable all the staff we came into contact were - something Washington DC is not necessarily known for. This beautiful hotel is great for visitors and locals alike. And if you are interested in its history- there's even a little museum off of the north elevator banks.
