About

A magnificent venue, our historic landmark hotel neighboring the White House on Pennsylvania Avenue, offers gracefully orchestrated celebrations of consistent quality, classic elegance and personalized service that are hallmarks of a Willard InterContinental wedding.

The largest of these rooms, is our Grand Ballroom boasting a warm color scheme of pale yellow, cream, green and soft blue with a hand painted landscape mural that runs along the perimeter of the room and eight handcrafted Crystal chandeliers that serve as the focal point of the space. This room can accommodate 280 for the ceremony and dinner & dancing.

The Crystal Room, comfortably seats 130 for dinner & dancing, was the original Ballroom for the Willard when it first opened in 1901. It, too, has been brought back to its original design with floor to ceiling windows, marble columns and ornate hand-carved gold leaf moldings.

The Willard Room, comfortably seats 170 for dinner & dancing, formerly the Hotel鈥檚 fine dining room, has also been restored to its original design. It boasts six exquisite brass chandeliers, floor to ceiling windows and marble columns, as well as ornate gold leaf molding and hand carved wood accents throughout the ceiling.

Unlike other hotels in the area, the Willard InterContinental Hotel will offer you a beautiful venue with a unique European elegance that cannot be rivaled. Our International staff will welcome your family and friends to the hotel and embrace them with their wealth of experience and dedication, creating a sense of occasion that will make all of your guests feel special. We are committed to ensuring the perfect beginning to a lifetime of happiness.

    Gorgeous Venue

    The Willard was a wonderful wedding venue, and we could not be happier with our choice to have our special day there. Julia was awesome to work with. She was on top of everything, made sure everything ran smoothly, and to our liking. She made sure that my husband and me had time to actually eat, take moments to ourselves, enjoy our favorite drinks, and feel stress free on the day of our wedding. The Crystal ballroom is absolutely gorgeous. The history of the hotel and elegant decor of the ballroom separates this venue from others in DC. Our guests felt this was the best and most historic venue in DC. The Willard exceeded all expectations. We could not be happier.

    My dream - the most beautiful intimate wedding!

    We held our small wedding of 25 at the Willard in the Crystal Ballroom. We worked with Eun and she was so accomodating and supportive as our plans changed a few times due to COVID. The evening went so smoothly, the food was delicious (our guests were raving about the scallops!!), room was beautiful and everyone had the most amazing time! The Willard ensured we had the wedding of our dreams in a safe beautiful space! We look forward to having a larger party next year in the same room!

    Would highly recommend the Willard for any events, special dinners, or formal occasions.

    Most beautiful venue ever

    I honestly get emotional writing about my wedding at the Willard because it was more beautiful and elegant than I had hoped and imagined it to be and I'm so grateful to the people there for giving me and my husband the most wonderful memories of our lives. From the moment we became their clients, they treated us like honored guests, with so much grace at all steps along the planning process. They were receptive, responsive, very amenable to changes and willing to work with our coordinator with everything from banquet options to to little itty bitty changes on our timeline. On the day of our wedding, my husband and I felt like royalty. Everyone - from the people who greeted us at the door to the wait and catering staff - was so wonderful to us, constantly checking up on us throughout the stay and asking if we needed anything. At the end of the night, the catering staff sent up sandwiches, popcorn, chocolate covered strawberries and a tiny wedding cake that was SO CUTE. I miss going to this place to check out my wedding venue - the Willard is so special to me now.
