U.S. News Review

The massive Willard sits at the heart of everything D.C.; the National Mall and all the most recognizable monuments are within walking distance. And recent guests say The Willard InterContinental's inside is just as impressive as its surroundings, particularly the massive marble columns and intricate chandeliers in the lobby. Elegant decor extends to The Willard's accommodations, which feature eye-popping red accents, wood furnishings and luxurious amenities like flat-screet TVs, individual climate control and fully stocked minibars. However, some guests do say noise can be a problem. To ensure a restful night's sleep, request a room that looks west, facing the Washington Monument rather than 14th Street. After a long day of sightseeing, you can relax at the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa, or grab a bite to eat at one of the four gourmet restaurants. If you participate in InterContinental's Rewards Club, you can accrue or redeem free perks and discounts by choosing to stay here.
