Why We Like This Place

Here are 5 reasons why The Willard’s a must-see for those planning a classic Washington, D.C. wedding:
1. The Willard is a true D.C. landmark: Since it opened in 1818, this hotel has boasted famous visitors like Charles Dickens, Martin Luther King, Jr., and almost every U.S. president since Franklin Pierce.

2. The hotel’s Beaux-Arts event venues offer stunning details: From the rich mahogany walls of the Willard Room to the delicately painted murals and white columns in the Grand Ballroom, there’s a unique style to every event space.

3. This glitzy venue is pretty green, too: The Willard’s sustainability initiatives cover everything from water conservation to planting new cherry trees at the National Tidal Basin.

4. The Red Door Spa is actually in the hotel, which makes for a convenient pre-wedding pedicure or a relaxing post-wedding massage.

5. Known as The Crown Jewel of Pennsylvania Avenue, The Willard is just one block away from the White House and within walking distance of major D.C. attractions like the National Theater and the Smithsonian Museums.
