About InterContinental The Willard Washington D.C.

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 Willard InterContinental has three beautiful ballrooms that can seat 80 guests to 280 guests. 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. 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’s 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.

    World-Class Service and Ambiance!

    Our wedding reception was held in the Grand Ballroom with 200 guests, the most elegant reception ballroom in DC, in our opinion! My husband and I stayed in the Calvin Coolidge (bridal) suite, which we thought was beautiful, spacious and spectacular! Our cocktail hour was held right outside the ballroom and it was just perfect. Our event coordinator, Eun Kim, worked until the wedding reception was complete. She is very result orientated. She is self-motivated and strives to complete all wedding reception tasks on time. She answered every single one of our questions and is a big-picture thinker. She continually seeks to meet all of your expectations for your big day! She worked tirelessly with our families at the initial tasting and trial-run for the dinner menu, until she finalized the complex menu and cake flavor/design. She was PATIENT and GRACIOUS with us - such a pleasure to work with the entire process! Even when I changed the seating arrangements and room configuration the week before the wedding, she didn't hesitate and was on it. From start to finish, the Willard ambiance, the hotel staff, the chefs, the valet, audio-visual team, banquet staff, etc. were accommodating and a pleasure to work with. Trust us and request to work with Eun Kim and your wedding vision will be achieved. Our guests felt this was the best and most historic venue in DC. Glorious room with world-class views, impeccable food, exceptional service! Eun is the absolute best! She replied to all of my emails within one day, she remained organized throughout the process, kept us ahead of schedule and was so thorough and engaged in the process! She puts in the care and attention of a family member and a member of your wedding party! At one point during the reception, she even located and brought me a little bag I had with my ballerina flats, so I could change my heels! The Willard is the best venue and customer service and all my guests were thrilled with their experience! Thank you to The Willard and Eun Kim for our perfect day!

    The Willard was the perfect backdrop for our July wedding reception in DC. Kalynne was fantastic and incredibly accommodating leading up to the wedding and was always there to answer any questions or concerns we may have had. We were able to book multiple areas of the hotel to host a cocktail hour and reception. The staff was professional and attentive in making sure everything went seamlessly the day of the wedding. We are so delighted that we chose the Willard for our wedding reception and look forward to going back for anniversaries to remember all the wonderful times we had that night!
