The entire staff was very friendly and welcoming. From the valet to the check in counter top notch. The lobby and first floor of the Willard was just gorgeous, a great touch was the pianist. The room was spacious and very clean. The bed VERY comfortable and the pillows were amazing.
Location is perfect for seeing the DC sites and shopping.

The Willard Hotel may be on of the oldest hotels in Washington, DC however, it is a great place to stay, close to the mall and museums. The staff her made my stay here wonderful. Each person I ran into was polite and went out of their way to serve and help you. There are so many great places to eat within walking distance and there is always a fleet of taxi's at your service. Our room had a fully stocked mini bar and the view of the White House Ellipse was beautiful. I highly recommend this hotel and I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Fogo De Chao restaurant is about a block and an half from here!!!

At the invitation of the company my husband works for, we were able to stay at this beautiful hotel for several nights. The lobby is very elegant and the service unmatched. The rooms are very nice, but for the money they are not any more elegant than the Hampton Inn. Great location for seeing the mall. Be sure to go around the corner and eat at the Old Ebbit Grill. Great food and service. Best oysters in DC!

We just spent our third stay at The Willard. I love this hotel! The staff is extemely attentive and polite giving the impression that you are their only patron. Michael, at the reception desk, was one of the nicest hotel employees I have ever met. He made sure we got a good room and that we were satisfied with all of the services. What a delight. Our room was clean, large and quiet fulfilling all of our needs. This hotel is well worth the money and it is my only choice when visiting DC.
