    Great hotel, in amazing building. Great location next to the White House and within walking distance from the Mall and several interesting museums. Try crab cakes in Café du Parc, they are amazing!

    I really liked this hotel and hope to try their restaurants next time. Only thing that I would have liked is a refreshed modern shower. Ordered steak medium rare via room service it was cooked medium.

    Beautiful hotel with incredible rooms. The food is pretty overpriced, but the room and spa are worth every penny!

    Great location, spacious room and good service. It's an honor to stay in this historic hotel. Breakfast should be tier 1, only compared within American hotels. Food choices are fewer than Asian IHGs.

    Everyone from Martin Luther King Jr. to Mark Twain has stayed at The Willard. Be sure to check out the famed Round Robin Bar, where the mint julep is our favorite cocktail.

    Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda, stayed at this 335-room grand dame shortly after their 1920 marriage. They saidthe hotel smelled "of peaches & hot biscuit & the cindery aroma of travelling salesmen"

    This is a lovely setting for high tea, and the scones are quite good. Live harp music on Friday-Sunday. The finger sandwiches are ho-hum, as is the tea itself. The hostess is more than a bit snooty.
