Our room was dated, the mini bar fridge was broken, and the carpet a bit musty. The bed was fine, but the bathroom was dated. The staff was very nice, the lobby beautiful, and breakfast was fantastic. I'd stay there again, but only if I got a deal on the room. Renovations are necessary.

This hotel is fantastic! The hotel is in a great location and the rooms are wonderful. But, what sets this hotel apart is the wonderful staff and service. Your every need is met from the minute you walk in the door, your luggage is quickly whisked away as you step out of the car and the wonderful service doesn't end...

Although we live in a DC suburb we periodically book an overnight stay in the city to tour a museum, visit a monument or two, see a show. The Willard is always our hotel of choice--clean, quiet, convenient and with a touch of history. A good breakfast is the proverbial icing on the cake.

Our room was larger than expected for DC,though a variety of room styles are available. I loved the marble bathroom with tub and shower, soft towels and robes. The service was impeccable and the location was perfect. I enjoyed the history of the hotel and would definitely stay here again. We walked to several sites: Ford Theater, National Gallery, Air...

This hotel had a fantastic location. The hotel also had a great gym and good room service menu, a little expensive, but really good non the less. The room was okay, was really big, just had a little window..... Really small. Great selection of TV channels. I was just not impressed with the front desk service and the door men....

Me and my husband took a 5 day trip to DC for our anniversary. The hotel stay was by far one of my favorites. I am very very picky. I cannot stress how picky I am but my friends call me a hotel snob. At first I was very nervous because older hotel and hallways looked dated but it was...

We stopped by on a weekday evening for drinks at the Red Robin Lounge in the Old Willard Hotel.The lounge has photos of political and literary figures who have graced the establishment since the early part of the 20th century. Who knew what Alice Roosevelt looked like? SMG

Strategically located, a grand hotel with large rooms and public spaces. Age is beginning to show in the quality and standard of the room furnishings. The hotel restaurant is ridiculously overpriced with standard food offerings. The redeeming feature is the old fashioned high standard conciergerie which provides exceltional service.

Nice hotel and AMAZING location. Close to WH and a lot of other great sights in DC. You will find that the duParc restaurant leaves a lot wanting from a 4.5 / 5 star hotel. Staff is great but offerings are limited at the restaurant. I stayed in a deluxe king room that didn't have a great view, but that...

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
