For historical significance and lavish surroundings in the heart of Washington DC, the Willard Intercontinental is the capital's best hotel.

The Willard's location has been a hotel since 1816, but the lushly rendered Beaux Arts Willard hotel first opened in 1850. Known as the "Residence of the Presidents," the Willard has since served every single president, most notable Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant (reputed for having coined the term "lobbying" in the Willard's ornate marble lobby). And it was here that Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote the famous "I Have a Dream" speech.

Attracting so many of the world's notables, the Willard excels at personal service with wireless connectivity, 24-hour room service, 24-hour valet and a responsive and attentive staff. Catering to both an international business and travel crown, the Willard offers a currency exchange and a news shop with over 150 world papers daily.

Guest rooms are some of the largest in Washington DC, part of the decadence of the Beaux Arts era. Totally renovated in 2000 (also to include sublime beds), guestrooms are stately and immaculate, done in rich colors and offering upscale amenities.

The Presidential Suite is a massive 3,000 square foot residence, while the feminine Jenny Lind suite takes advantage of romantic architecture and features a Jacuzzi tub overlooking the Washington Monument.

In the hotel's green Round Robin bar, sip the Willard's fabled creation: the Julep. The fine dining Willard Room, with its glossy grand piano and richly paneled walls, is a luxe showcase for seasonal dishes. The Café 1401 is a sleeker place for a bite and Peacock Alley, lined with cherry trees, offers a full-service afternoon tea.

Pamper at the Willard's brand new I SPA, a full-service treatment and beauty salon offering over 25 skin and body treatments and 11 variations of massage.

Willard's location at the epicenter of Washington DC makes it ideal for exploring Washington, DC's civic and cultural attractions. One block from the White House and two blocks from the Metro Center station (with access all over Washington, DC), the Willard also is within walking distance of the Smithsonian Museums, the National Mall and the Verizon and Convention Centers.
