We had come back to the Willard to be married and they truly took care of us! The hotel, itself, is so beautiful and luxurious that you really must take time to embrace the awe of it. When I checked us in, I told Saide at the front desk that we were there for our wedding and that I had proposed there 4 years previously. She was so welcoming and worked to help us have an amazing experience. She sent us off to the bar for a complimentary celebratory drink while she and her manager and housekeeping made arrangements for us. The manager came and provided us with our key in the bar and we then made our way up to our amazing suite. We had been upgraded to the John F. Kennedy Suite (Room 410). This place was epic! We were gobsmacked by the beauty of this over 1400 Sq ft 1.5 bath room. It was so beautiful with an oval living room and dining nook and and and and and... Seriously the most beautiful room I have ever been in and I have stayed in some very nice place. I can't say enough nice things about the room and the hotel. I then received a call from Saide offering to send us a bottle of champagne and strawberries to celebrate our impending nuptials. The service at the hotel was impeccable. There is really nothing that I can say other than they helped give us the best experience and environment for our wedding. We did room service in the morning and it arrived promptly and was delicious and worth every penny. And when we checked out, Saide was at the desk again and asked us how we enjoyed our stay and was genuinely interested in the response. Definitely stay here if you have the chance!
"Gracious, not intimate"
The Willard is a very attractive, old fashioned style hotel with beautiful public spaces and very comfortable rooms. One has the sense that there is always a lot going on. The location is excellent for visitors who want to take in the sights of Washington. Excellent, but just short of outstanding.
"Great location, beautiful hotel"
I stayed at the Willard on business. The location cannot be beat! It's in a beautiful location within walking distance of lots of monuments. The lobby of the hotel is stunning -- lots of frescoes and gold trim. It's historical and gorgeous. I had one complaint while I was there -- the pipes near my room took to clanging loudly during the middle of the night. The next morning, I told the front desk and asked them to please send up some ear plugs. They did so, and so much more! I returned from my conference to find a bottle of white wine and a cheese plate, compliments of the hotel! This is an extra level of customer service that I truly appreciated.
"Best "Historic DC Hotel Experience""
Everything was amazing. Comfortable, elegant rooms. Staff was exceptional. So much history here - gives you goosebumps. Went to bar every night after coming back from dinner. Bartenders were very friendly and knew how to make real cocktails. Made me my favorite cucumber mint margarita with fresh lime of course. A fun lively crowd in bar. Overall can't think of one negative report for this exceptional hotel.
Lovely hotel with plenty of charm and fantastic architecture. The history of the hotel was very inspiring. We attended a wedding that was held on The premises and everything was perfect. Proximity to all the attractions worked out well. Within walking distance to everything.
