I stayed at the Willard for one night whilst visiting friends in the DC area. It is a very impressive property in terms of it's interior (the lobby will floor you) and exterior. I have stayed in other hotels close by, such as the JW Marriott, but this has been my favorite and I would return again. I rated it 'very good' instead of 'excellent' because I have stayed in other properties around the world that are more luxurious, with slightly better service and more modern facilities. Some more detailed points:
Room - I stayed in 1130, which was HUGE. The furniture was in good condition and everything was clean. However, the bathroom did look slightly dated and was small (in general, it was not as grandiose as the room and the rest of the property).
Food - I ordered a snack from room service and the food was pretty good. It also arrived quite quickly. Drinks and snacks at the Round Robin Bar were of a high standard.
Location - Excellent, excellent location...hands down. You can't get better then this as your right in the centre of everything (restaurants, tourist sites, the White House, etc.). I rented a car and drove in from Dulles, which was very easy and took about 30-40 min.
Service - The staff were polite and what I expected from a hotel of this caliber (almost five stars, but not quite).
