Favored by American presidents and other newsmakers, this Washington landmark offers superb service, a wealth of amenities, and guest rooms filled with period detail and Federal-style furniture. The spectacular beaux-arts lobby showcases great columns, sparkling chandeliers, mosaic floors, and elaborate ceilings—a Washington sight in itself. The French bistro–style restaurant Café du Parc serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner in an extremely casual atmosphere, and high
tea is served in Peacock Alley. The Willard's archives chronicle the hotel's legendary past with photos, newspaper articles, and artifacts.
