    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.

    We had a great lunch outside. Love the cute birds on the terrace.

    A very grand old hotel. Just don't order room service—everything is absurdly salty.

    Though the focus is definitely on business travelers (the business services are incredible), this is a decent base for sightseeing too – the National Mall is not far away. Read more · July 1, 2013

    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.

  • Drew F.

    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"

    Double white chocolate mocha the best!!!!

    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.

    I've heard that Mark Twain used to like strolling down "peacock alley" -- then would run outside down 14th St. and do it again!

    Feeling like "Boardwalk Empire?" Rub elbows with the district most powerful in this classic style hotel bar. The only thing that would make this place perfect is being able to light up a fat stogie
