stayed at the hotel for a weekend event; it's beautiful and looks like you would imagine it did 150 years ago. Great location and excellent staff. Our room was quiet, nicely decorated and reasonably priced

We have stayed at the Willard numerous times. Each seems better than the last. On this visit, we were in for one night for business meetings and some sightseeing. Weeks earlier, we tried to get timed tickets to the National African American Museum. Of course they were sold out and we gave up on that idea. While at the concierge...

This is a very upscale hotel in the midst of everything there is to see in Washington DC. Even though it is a fairly large hotel, it does not feel that big. The lobby is very attractive but not extremely large. The coffee shop/breakfast area is also cozy. There is also an upscale restaurant associated with the hotel, but I...

As frequent traveler to DC, I have occasion to stay in a variety of hotels. I often choose the Willard because of its central location and nice size rooms.

Great location on Pennsylvania Ave, with the Big Bus tourist bus right out the front door. however be prepared to wait for long periods to be seated for breakfast on a weekend.

Thank you for your review. We are incredibly fortunate to have the location that do as we are not only within walking distance to many of the city's most notable attractions, but many of the sightseeing tours, including Big Bus, have pick-up locations outside of our historic property.

This is a beautiful hotel that former Presidents,dignitaries, members of Congress, Senate, etc. eat and socialize. The hotel sat boarded up for years. The Tea is very nice.

The Willard is in a fabulous location and the people were all that you want and more. While the price wasn't cheap, it isn't bad for the going rate in that area. The room was clean and comfortable. Restaurant down stairs was perfect for breakfast each morning before heading out.

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
