The Willard InterContinental Washington was perfect for our family--two teenagers plus mom and dad. The location was well within walking distance of all the DC tourist sites and there was shopping and eating establishments close by as well. There were also a couple Metro stations close by as well. The hotel was very nice. My teenager thought it was great and that's something for a teen! We arrived a bit early for our checkin and the desk clerk said to feel free to leave our bags with the bellman and then go out and explore a bit. He would call as soon as the room was done. We returned back before he called, but he said he had upgraded our room since it wasn't ready when we initially arrived. We went from a nonsmoking, 2 queen room to a two bath suite--even more perfect with teens! The hotel had a fitness center which we used a couple mornings--clean, accessible, good equipment. My daughter and I splurged and did the afternoon tea at the hotel. This was fun and the food was good. We did not eat a meal in the hotel resturant, but did get coffee to go from the cafe. The staff of the hotel was very friendly and willing to help in any way they could. If you're in DC and want a place centrally located to everything, this would be it. I would highly recommend the Willard Intercontinental Washington! Absolutely Perfect!
