Had a snarky experience with the front desk staff. Belittled me and had very condescending attitude. When asked more about parking i was told to “read the signs on the street” 😶 500$ a night and get disrespected. Ruined my entire stay.

Hotel is located in the center of DC which offers easy access to the sites and multiple dining options. Hotel has many dining options and outdoor dining is a must. Staff is friendly and courteous. The Willard's goal is to make their clients feel valued which they achieve every time we visit.

From check in to check out we felt the entire staff was ready and willing to ensure our stay was memorable and enjoyable. Our room was large and well appointed. Care is being taken for COVID-19 issues and we appreciated that. The housekeepers are doing a great job! Breakfast outdoors at Cafe du Park was delicious with large portions and served hot! A good way to enjoy the excellent hotel location and people watch too! The concierge was kind enough to ensure we had timed tickets to one of the Smithsonian museums. Thank you! Staff at reception were friendly, helpful and an excellent representation of your hotel brand. The bartenders at the Round Robin Bar are master mixologists. Such a nice relaxing atmosphere. We are first time visitors to the Willard and after this short stay we can emphatically say we will return. Thank you everyone at the Willard. We had a wonderful time!

We decided to stay at the Willard InterContinental as a combination Anniversary and Baby Moon staycation. The entire hotel is beautiful, the room was very comfortable, and the food/drinks (alcoholic for him, non for her) were delicious! We loved the historic location while still being updated with creature comforts. It was a great location to explore DC by foot and so easy to go back to when we wanted to cool off and have a break from others. Part of our package included the breakfast buffet, which was absolutely delicious. Deepak, our waiter, was absolutely incredible and made it enjoyable each day. We felt relaxed and refreshed at the end of our stay. Highly recommend! Also, I know it’s odd to include toilet photos, but figured it was worth sharing for folks visiting from overseas.
