InterContinental The Willard Washington D.C.

Washington DC, USA

The hotel

Nicknamed ‘The Residence of Presidents’, the name-dropping guestbook at this historic hotel backs-up its status as a DC ‘des res’. Some of that kudos is down to its address – on Pennsylvania Avenue, this district’s other notable residences include The White House, just one block away. Inside, The Willard InterContinental spills secrets of its 200 year history in its high-drama décor, from the uber-grand lobby to the regal ‘Peacock Alley’ (the ideal spot for afternoon tea). It may be perfectly positioned for sightseeing and restaurant-hopping, but they’ve also added time-wasting treats like a sumptuous spa and tempting dining and drinking spaces like their French-inspired brasserie, Café du Parc.

We stayed here for a wedding. Food was wonderful, service great and the rooms were big. Best part was the location. The hotel was across from the white house. Short walk to the national monument and the museums. Good restaurants nearby. 15 minute cab ride to airport. We had a great time in DC and at the Willard. Will definitely come again.… Read more

The Willard InterContinental was a perfect spot for attending our banking conference! Centrally located, great restaurant, wonderfully comfortable rooms and atmosphere for the moment you walked into the door until we departed. Would highly recommend The Willard Intercontinental for personal or business travel!

Absolutely exceptional hotel -- a touch of class! We took our grandson (and his parents) on his first trip to Washington. I cannot imagine a better hotel to stay. Minutes from the White House, Old Ebbitts Grill, the hotel is by itself, a historical location. The rooms were great, as were the amenities. However, the thing that truly sets it apart… Read more
