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 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 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.
