A Grand Old Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 27, 2014

This old is grand, elegant, and has a great mix of old decor and fixtures, while being modern, well kept, and clean. The staff was welcoming, polite and always helpful, and we loved our stay here! The restaurants were great, as well as the historic Round Robin bar was really nice! A beautiful, beautiful hotel right in the center of all of the DC attractions! We would definitely return!

Prime located luxury hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 9, 2007

Not just a typical hotel in the chain, this oozes presidential character. Located well, near the white house and other attractions and business locations, with impeccable service, this can't be beat if you can get a reasonable rate.

Unique Quality: Service, location, rooms.

I've stayed twice, in 1996 & 1998. Once would have been a privilege.

It has huge rooms, and is a real luxury. Breakfasts are sumptuous, and a haunt of the power breakfast types.

The lobby is atmospheric, and more like St Peter's in Rome than a hotel.

The location is amazing - just 2 blocks (or 3 doors) from the White House!

Unique Quality: The luxury; the atmosphere; the location

Directions: Come out of White House, turn left and its 2 blocks up PA

THE Hotel in D.C.

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 17, 2005

I've always wanted to stay here and finally got the chance last week. What can I say- in my opinion it is THE number one hotel in D.C. The location is- well, the President has the closest residence. The rooms are amazing, the service is tip-top and the history of this grande lady is enchanting. The restaurant on the lower floor has an amazing menu and will make the longest stay seem too short. For people who love to stay in this town, if you can afford The Willard, this is a must in ones lifetime.

Unique Quality: The hotel in itself is almost like a museum. Rooms both dedicated to Presidents and stayed in by Presidents, with the upper echelon of americas politicians in and out on an hourly basis, and simply amazing decor. From the haunted halls to the harps playing in the lobby, there is no greatet hotel in D. C.

Directions: to the right of the White House

The Center of Washington DC

by written on September 8, 2003

We didn't stay here, but it sure looked pretty impressive. Many nice hotels in Washington!

Unique Quality: Located in the heart of Washington DC, the hotel is near government and business offices, within walking distance to several Washington theater districts, as well as many sightseeing attractions. The White House is just two blocks away and the National Mall, with its diverse museums, is within walking distance. Since 1850 the Willard hotel has been a favorite choice of many travelers.

Directions: The Freedom Plaza vicinity.

The Willard.
An elegant and exclusive hotel built in 1901 by the same architect responsible for the Plaza in New York. It was one of the city's first skyscrapers.
The building, inside and out, is a marvel in grand luxury.

by written on August 24, 2002

The best bet on getting a good rate is checking with some of the services that book hotels. Prices will peak during the peak seasons such as the Cherry Blossem festival. Try the Hotel Assn of Washington 800-452-1270. Also, try discount hotel brokers that book rooms that are left unsold and have good rates. DC Accommodations: 1-800-554-2220, and Capitol Reservations 1-800-847-4832 or try some of the on line hotel reservations services.

I enjoyed staying at the Embassy Suites in Alexandria, Virginia because it had a free full breakfasts and suites. Very nice with suites which is great for privacy if traveling with your family and convenient to the Metro.

Holiday Inn on Capitol Hill , good basic hotel for families or business on a budget. Convenient to the Capitol Building or Union Station.

If money is no object, the Willard Intercontinental Hotel 1401 Pennsylvania Ave, is a historic hotel restored to Victorian grandeur, near the White House.

The Willard Hotel

by written on August 24, 2002

$300/night (although you can get deal for around $200)

Unique Quality: Located right off of the White House, the Willard is an elegant hotel rich in DC political history. Weekly off-ste congressional meetings/strategy sessions take place in the Willard (often in the hotel's bar - The Robin's Nest). It's central location to most of the city's top sites and restaurants is also a plus.

Directions: Right around the corner from the White House.
