The Willard is a top tier hotel (Ritz quality or better). I was in town for a one night stay. I was able to check in around noon, and my room was perfect. Quick check-in, easy check out. Already looking forward to my next visit to the Willard! PS - hotel location is perfect for the Mall/ museums.

I've stayed at the Willard since the 1990s for work travel. It's gotten incrementally less impressive to the point that I'll find another hotel next time I'm in DC. The rooms have always been stuffy, but now they're dated. When I got out of my cab tonight, no one helped me carry my luggage up the steep stairs (it was...

We stayed here at a Saturday night. The atmosphere is just grand: the lobby, Round Robin Bar, and the Peacock Gallery - warm colors and lots of soft light. The rooms were terrific - large, clean, and stylish. The gym was OK but the sauna great. And the best part: the Round Robin Bar!

Another fantastic stay at the Willard. Great staff, historic hotel with elegant lobby, fabulous rooms and location is perfect with proximity to the Mall and the museums. Cafe du Parc is a nice coffee bar part of the hotel. Had a nice dinner at McCormick & Schmick's on K Street and attended an excellent jazz concert at Maggiano's in McLean.

Superb stay at legendary hotel. Comfy bed, spacious/spotless/silent room and a shower with enough pressure to serve as a masseuse! The bar is an absolute gem, a place where the people are great and the drinks are strong. Staff was unfailingly helpful. Definitely a bucket list place if you are traveling to DC.

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
