    Historical Traveler Reviews Willard InterContinental Washington Washington DC

    The finest!

    from

    What a hotel! It sparkles from the moment you walk in. The Lobby is beautiful and elegent. The hotel has that posh, clean and refined feel to it. History may ooze out of the cracks but luxury keeps it in the modern age. If luxury, cleanliness and ego are what you're about - the Willard is the place to stay.,

    Loved the Willard

    from

    Went to the Willard on Valentine's Day weekend 2004. What an amazing hotel. Staff was fantastic.. hotel rooms are huge and the food/drinks at the Willard Room are incredible. Checked in and received fresh fruit and bottled water.. everyone from the bellcaptain to the housekeeper to the waitstaff knew my name/and addressed me with it/throughout my stay.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    LOVED the Willard

    from

    Room was a little small, but all in all a GREAT experience. Had a view of the Lincoln & Washington monuments. Hung out in the Round Robin Bar, which is small but totally neat....go down for a drink if you stay before you go out. The lobby is the best part of it...There are tables with drink & snack service. U.S. Grant used to go there to knock back a few when he was President. Folks would come up to him in the lobby and ask him for political favors....And now you know the history of the creation of the "lobbyist". That's what Grant called those folks, and that's what we call them today.Staff was great...our first room had no view (which we had specifically requested and paid more for) and they were very good about getting us another room (which was slightly smaller, but not that bad). Bed turndowns, cleanups, little things like putting our toothbrushes STRAIGHT on a towel we used to lay our toothbrushes...they actually REPLACED the towels under the brushes and placed them back because I guess they figured out that's how we liked it. Really nice.Anyway, go for it. So close to the Mall. Perfect for museums. Oh, and if you're going to eat, OLD EBBET'S IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST! BEST CRABCAKES EVER!

    Loved the Willard

    from

    Wonderful experience from the minute we walked through the door.I stayed at the Willard on October 31st and November 1st. November 1st was our wedding and we wanted to stay someplace special. We had booked a room at the St. Regis Hotel in Washington, DC. It was a horrific experience, the service and room were way below average. We called the Willard on the 31st and they took care of us.The room was terrific and the service was top notch. We hope to return for our 1 year anniversary.

    Beautiful Hotel

    from

    I stayed at the hotel on October 17 - 18, 2003 and definitely recommend it. It is expensive, but the staff provide a level of service that less expensive hotels do not. The hotel is in a very convenient location, and the rooms are nicely decorated, full of amenities, spacious, and clean. I was originally booked in a room on the 12th floor, and the room did not have a window that opened. Unfortunately, there was a problem with smells venting into the room from the restaurant below, but the hotel recognized the problem and quickly moved me to another room. The staff's responsiveness on this issue convinced me to try to the hotel again, despite the problem.

    Classic comfort at the Willard

    from

    Although the Willard's regular rates are sky-high, check for weekend bed-and-breakfast packages. The cost is still high relative to other NW options, but there are many compensating advantages: wonderfully comfortable and quiet accommodations, superlative service, and location convenient to Metro Center and major tourist destinations.

    Elegant luxury

    from

    SUPERB! My husband and I stayed at the Willard the weekend before Labor day and we're completely satisfied and amazed at the service. From the luxurious lobby to the marble columns at the entrance at the foyer to the antique furniture in the rooms, you will not regret the choice to stay at the Willard Inter-continental!

    Incredible Hotel

    from

    COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE PLEASED!! My wife and I made a trip to Washington for the first time on our anniversary. From check in to every whim that we could imagine the staff pampered us like no other ever has. We travel fairly often and this was the nicest hotel, with the best service we have ever experienced. The Willard Room was where we chose for our anniversary dinner and we were treated like royalty. The food was true five star quality. The Willard itself will leave you speechless with it's architectural beauty, cleanliness and ammenities. The location could not have been better for a first trip to D.C. We were in the heart of the city and within walking distance of everything. We have vowed to make it an annual tradition. BOOK IT YOU WILL LOVE IT!!

    A great hotel

    from

    The Willard is quite simply a wonderful hotel.The building itself is historic and is redolent with history and tradition.The modernization has been sympathetically done - preserving its character whilst providing modern amenities.It has the best location in town - next door to the White House and the Mall - and a fabulous staff who are, without exception, both friendly and attentive.The concierge desk is the best which I have ever come across in a lifetime of international travel, knowledgeable, efficient, helpful.There are some great views from the rooms and the one in which I stayed was very comfortable indeed.This hotel is really well-run and staying there was a real joy.

    Fabulous histroical hotel in the heart of Washington D.C.

    from

    I've stayed at the Willard numerous times. The location, service from the staff and overall ambience of the hotel you can't beat. You can expect nothing but the best from this from an Inter-Continental Hotel.

    Now, this is a strange airport. Quite basic and run down. Same terrorists as staff. The usual Dynostick and pat down. I am getting quite used to it by now. I wonder what they will say if I patted down myself..

    Caught a shuttle bus to the Willard Continental. Serenade by a 150 plus kg driver sing to hip hop? R n B? in a high high falsetto. …

    ... minute that school groups turn up! We've been like a magnet for school tours all trip, and it happened again today at the National Archives. Worst part is the kids are rude and don't have any appreciation of the area they're in. We did briefly get to see the 3 main artifacts located in the National Archives Building before being overrun with kids. These were the three documents of American Freedom; The Declaration of Independance, Bill of Rights and ...

Thankfully it was still plenty of time until night time and it wasn't long before I was near the Stadium and as I was crossing the road what did I see but the offices of BAE Systems Inc. (all this way and I can't escape work!!!).
