I landed in Washington D.C. for the first time in my life this February and I was amazed by the architecture of the city. Not so American (to me) but more European. As a loyal Spire Elite Ambassador, I have booked my room at the InterContinental (The Willard). --If you are not an IHG member yet, you are missing a...

Not that the receptionist is extremely rude, which is weird for a hotel that you are paying 400 $ per night for, but also you have to pay for a lousy internet! Who still charges for internet? Please, stay away from this hotel by all means. Rude receptionist ruined everything. He needs education on how to respect people with different...

Just like in the movie!!!! I love the building!!! walking in the hotel feels like being in a palace! The music from the Harpist made it even more beautiful. We also went to the restaurant and had some snacks. Being there was just amazing.

I've been staying at the Willard for 8 consecutive years on business. I've always received great service, staff is very polite and ready to help in any way they can. I plan and hold a 3-day conference at the hotel using their conference rooms, ballrooms and in-house catering. Each year the staff gives our group a warm welcome back and...

Room was extremely quiet and comfortable even being in the heart of DC. Lobby conversation areas - chairs+couch+table allowed our family to play Canasta (ours was a joint business/vacation trip).

Beautiful hotel in a great location. Junior King Suite was huge and had great views. Private Dining (room service) was delicious. $10.95/night for Wi-Fi seems a little ridiculous for such an expensive hotel.

The gracious atmosphere set the stage for the wedding party and friends. Preparing for the special event was not only peaceful but supportive. The Willard combined these two bases for the couple and the wedding party to enjoy the time together and face the opportunities for memories that will last a lifetime.

I stayed at this property a few weeks ago on a business trip. It was a severe disappointment. As a business person, I would never stay here again. It is an old, out-of-date physical plant and the mediocre service.

I always enjoy staying at this beautiful hotel. The round robin bar is one of my favourite spots in all of DC. Not tried any dining here as it's pretty pricey - even for DC. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the heart of the nation's capital, two blocks from the White House, The Willard InterContinental Washington, D.C. offers 335 spacious and elegantly appointed guest rooms, 41 of which are suites, that exude a unique blend of contemporary luxury and historic charm. Many of The Willard's guest rooms feature views of Pennsylvania Avenue and historic landmarks like the Washington Monument as well as downtown Washington, D.C. The Willard has been the site of many prestigious meetings, conferences and social events for nearly 200 years. With 19 meeting rooms and over 22,000 sq. ft. of event space, The Willard features unique and elegant function rooms including several ballrooms from which to choose. Discover a relaxing counterpoint to the busy pace of Washington, D.C. as you savor the fare at Cafe du Parc, featuring delicious French bistro cuisine and exquisite house-made patisseries. Reserve a table on one of Washington's most popular terraces' or dine inside in a modern, sleek Parisian-style setting. Join us for a drink in the historic Round Robin Bar. Located just off the lobby of The Willard, the Round Robin Bar has been a lively meeting place for Washington's political and social elite since the days of Abraham Lincoln. Long celebrated as one of the best in D.C., this legendary bar was known as the nexus of "Rum Row" and the "E street Corridor" -- plying its trade to luminaries such as Mark Twain and Walt Whitman. Today, this fashionable downtown spot draws a smart, stylish cross section of DC movers and shakers. The Round Robin Bar is open seven days a week, Monday through Saturday from 12 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. and Sundays 12:00 p.m. to midnight. ... more   less
