I always read what other trip advisor reviewers say about properties in a city I am about to visit. Thanks to the glowing reports on trip advisor about the Willard, I made a reservation there. What a good choice! Someone commented that if you are willing to spend a certain amount of money for a hotel in DC, you might as well leap up a few dollars and get the best. I am so glad I listened. First, I booked with the hotel. The lady who assisted me with the reservation really worked to find me a room with a lower price using all the discounts that could possibly apply. Among the best reasons for choosing this hotel is that it is close to everything. You don't need rapid transit or taxi cabs to get to the White House. It is on the same stree! You can walk to almost everything.As for the hotel, it is luxurious, stately, classic, yet friendly. Many presidents have stayed here, but don't worry that it will have an air of snobbery. It does not. As with any first rate hotel, the room was beutifully decorated and spacious. They anticipated what you might need with the usual quality products, coffees and teas, and even a scale.
