Haven't stayed here for about 5 years and was disappointed. For $700 for two nights I expected more. Our room was smaller than a motel room with only one comfortable chair and a very small closet. The employees are very well trained and treat one as a real guest. We had breakfast included which was a mistake. The breakfast restaurant, Cafe Parc, is similar to an inexpensive roadside quick breakfast place. The buffet is small and very crowded and the kitchen couldn't keep up with the food. The dining room is tiny and very crowded. I asked about other breakfast choices in the hotel and was told that there are none. DON'T INCLUDE BREAKFAST WITH YOUR RESERVATION. There are many other choices for breakfast within walking distance.
The location of the Willard is perfect. Close to the Mall and the White House. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance.
$100 for two days parking, $55 for a mediocre breakfast and $10 a day for very slow wifi gives one an incentive for finding other lodging. "It isn't like it used to be" is very appropriate for the 2014 Willard.
