Wonderful, Historic Washington, DC

The room looked exactly like the picture on the website. Spotlessly clean room, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Good restaurant with room service right on time. They had everything I needed, including a flower shop, right in the hotel. A beautiful and historic hotel located in the heart of the city.

The Willard Rocks!

Was in town to catch a show at the Warner, 2 blocks away. The staff was friendly and attentive, from valet, to check in, to bar staff. Lot's to do in the surrounding neighborhood. Not my first stay, definitely not my last. Also, this was my first (and very positive Orbitz experience).

The Willard is perfect!

There are so many good things to say about the Willard. First though - the location. We could walk to so many places very easily - White House, Newseum, National Gallery, more. The staff are great; the lobby is a great place to meet/greet friends; have tea; read the paper; have a drink. Just super elegant, comfortable and very professional staff. No complaints at all; perfect hotel. If the weather is good eat outside at Cafe du Parc; so relaxing and deluxe for people watching.

You need to plan at least 4+ months in advance to visit the White House due to increased security procedures. No more dropping by; it's Fort Knox now.

What a location!

The Willard was the best hotel experience I have ever had. It was perfect for my wife and I and our 4 kids - even a 5 month old! The service was amazing and the rooms were huge and very nice. If you like american history. This is the place to be. All of our presidents since Lincoln have stayed there and countless other historical events occurred in every corner of the beautiful lobby. Highly recommended.

In town for Show at National Theater

First rate, but a little expensive. Staff very accomodating including checking us in early when we arrived and giving us a late check out so we could spend a little more time in the city. Cafe du Park cafe is outstanding for breakfast and lunch. (Did not have dinner there.) Service and quality of simple direct food excellent. Again, a little expensive.

Never found the pool. Great lobby. I was unclear about breakfast options or other hotel amenities. Could have used more direction to that effect.

Everything in the hotel is historical and classic. The room is clean, big and very pretty. Also, every attraction place is within walking distance, therefore very convenient. Me and my family had a very good time staying in this hotel.
