Close to the White House and great food. The Round Robin bar was great and Julio the bartender was phenomenal! Front desk staff was professional and efficient and put us in a room facing the Washington Monument when we let them know it was our anniversary. So many amazing things about the Willard.

One of my two rooms had a very strong smell. Staff offered to attempt to spary the room instead of offering to move us. The smell took two of the three nights to go away.

Beautiful property, great staff

Our shower required service twice, before our room was changed to a room without a view. The sheets are very poor quality. The ice machine on the 8th floor was filthy. Rooms should be in working order. The HVAC in the old part of the hotel is not adjustable. The staff are great.

Check in was a total bomb you could not get to the front door you had to park down the street no one there to meet greet or help you with your luggage staff behind counter was extremely hard to understand due to strong accent also she was not willing to slow down and try to help me understand her room

I loved the history, the decorations and the building!

The stay was spectacular. Hotel was beautiful. The rate was very reasonable, Great bar and tea service.

The property is beautiful. Most of the staff were super friendly. Michael at the front desk was wonderful and went above and beyond. However, there was construction next to our room. Hammering and sanding and no one told us it would be going on. When we called they basically said there is no construction going on you must be hearing things from another building. This infuriated us. We have no reason to lie. The manager came upstairs and found that indeed there was construction going on. They offered us breakfast the next morning, but we declined. We were so insulted by the way it was handled. We almost left the hotel. The location is magnificent. The hotel is gorgeous.

Extortionate fees for room service - $15 for coffee for two (which was bad enough) became $26 with fees attached. Otherwise a nice stay. The best part was the free newspapers in the lobby.

Enjoyed holiday decorations. Upper floor was very quiet. A little hectic in the lobby area at times.

It is an elegant hotel, a gem. Every aspect of the Willard is first class and staying here is a real treat.

Location, staff, cleanliness all superb. Can't think of one negative.

Thank you for your review. We're deeply concerned to learn of the shortcomings you experienced upon arrival to the Willard InterContinental. 24-hours a day, we offer valet parking in the garage attached to the hotel. Learning you were not able to access the front is concerning. Should we have known then, we would have investigated the cause immediately. We do apologize for the trouble. Please know we have shared your comments with the valet team as well as our Bell Desk to ensure such an event does not reoccur. Thank you for sharing such candid feedback. Should your travels bring you back to Washington, D.C., we hope to have the opportunity to make amends for your recent experience.
