Editorial review:

This hotel has hosted presidents, even Abraham Lincoln. The rooms are beautiful and the location near the National Mall is greatly appreciated. The public rooms are classy and elegant, and the dining areas are fabulous. Some find it all a bit stuffy, but others feel that it's all part of the classic charm.

                              The location, central to doing business, sightseeing and exploring

                              It's a beautiful hotel with history and legacy. The service was par-none

                              The hotel is beautifully and rustique

                              It is far from the shopping center of George town

                              Excellent hotel with an international reputation that is justifiably deserved. Cuisine superb.

                              Extortionate minibar and only two tiny cartons of milk per day! Room brochure had no plan of hotel. 'Room allocated on arrival' translates as worst room in hotel: shame that as it acts as a major determinant in deciding whether to book again.

                              The price is rather high, however My double room was pretty small but convenient for one Breakfast not included, is luxury but expensive Additional fee for wifi

                              The Willard lived up to its reputation.

                              I did not like the staff knocking on the door at 8am and then coming back at 10am and just trying to walk in without ringing the bell.
