Willard InterContinental Washington, DC

One block from the White House and three blocks from the National Mall, the Willard InterContinental Washington, D.C. has been favored by discerning travelers since its inception more than 200 years ago. Overlooking Pennsylvania Avenue and the Washington Monument, the hotel is within easy walking distance of renowned museums and monuments as well. Relax and recharge at the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa. Dine at Café du Parc, a classic French bistro; enjoy a cocktail in the historic Round Robin Bar; or take part in Afternoon Tea in Peacock Alley, a tradition at the Willard since 1880.

Hotel Tip

Henry Clay first introduced the mint julep to Washington in the Willard’s Round Robin Bar, which remains a place to see and be seen.

good location

The Willard has a great history and a great location but it is tired and needs some TLC.  Probably not worth $600 a night.  I would recommend it but clarify that the hotel needs some updating (bathroom vanity was falling apart, tile a little moldy, rug worn and faded, chairs and couch dated).

A perfect location to see all the sights. Rooms were fine. Being a Historic hotel, one expects there to be some frayed edges with the interior but that just gives it its character. All services we good.

We enjoyed our stay at the Willard. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable with a beautiful view of the Washington Monument. Cafe Du Parc was delicious for both breakfast and dinner. The historical Round Robin Bar is a fun place to have cocktails too!

Our stay at the Willard was great as always. This hotel is one of our favorite hotels in the world, and the Virtuoso F&B benefits, including daily breakfast at the excellent Cafe du Parc, are very generous. Can't wait to return!

Beautiful lobby and the Round Robin bar was a lot of fun. We offered our Virtuoso upgrade but it took so long for the Junior Suite to be cleaned we were offered an even better upgrade!! Bedroom, large entry hall, powder room, small kitchen area and large round living room..the Calvin Coolidge suite!! The first morning we went to the restaurant for breakfast and had the buffet. I would give it a ok rating. Ordered room service breakfast and it was much better. Overall a lovely hotel.
