Located in the heart of the nation's capital, two blocks from the White House, The Willard InterContinental Washington, D.C. offers 335 spacious and elegantly appointed guest rooms, 41 of which are suites, that exude a unique blend of contemporary luxury and historic charm. Many of The Willard's guest rooms feature views of Pennsylvania Avenue and historic landmarks like the Washington Monument as well as downtown Washington, D.C. The Willard has been the site of many prestigious meetings, conferences and social events for nearly 200 years. With 19 meeting rooms and over 22,000 sq. ft. of event space, The Willard features unique and elegant function rooms including several ballrooms from which to choose. Discover a relaxing counterpoint to the busy pace of Washington, D.C. as you savor the fare at Cafe du Parc, featuring delicious French bistro cuisine and exquisite house-made patisseries. Reserve a table on one of Washington's most popular terraces' or dine inside in a modern, sleek Parisian-style setting. Join us for a drink in the historic Round Robin Bar. Located just off the lobby of The Willard, the Round Robin Bar has been a lively meeting place for Washington's political and social elite since the days of Abraham Lincoln. Long celebrated as one of the best in D.C., this legendary bar was known as the nexus of "Rum Row" and the "E street Corridor" -- plying its trade to luminaries such as Mark Twain and Walt Whitman. Today, this fashionable downtown spot draws a smart, stylish cross section of DC movers and shakers. The Round Robin Bar is open seven days a week, Monday through Saturday from 12 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. and Sundays 12:00 p.m. to midnight.

I have nothing but praise for this hotel, especially with the staff member that assisted our check in, Ali Ozan Tezyurek who was incredibly helpful to us both with some awful flight delays we had, as well as with advice of what to do during the shutdown. We were impressed enough

Hello Britty123. In June of this year, the Willard InterContinental completed an $18 million dollar refurbishment of our guest rooms and suites! We're immensely pleased with the finished product and hope you will be too! In regards to your question regarding bars on property. We have two. One is the Round Robin Bar, one of the most historic bars in Washington. The other is called Le Bar which is located inside our restaurant, Cafe du Parc. We look forward to welcoming you to the Willard InterContinental.

"very excellent"
"The top floor rooms have porthole windows. The rooms are great but you might want more light. A room facing 14th street has more light."
