Stay in the center of Inauguration festivities at the Willard InterContinental

A Landmark Hotel in the Nation’s Capital

For over 200 years, the Willard InterContinental has played host to the world’s political and social elite. Nicknamed the “Residence of Presidents,” The Willard has welcomed almost every U.S. president since Franklin Pierce in 1853.

Located in the heart of Washington, D.C., two blocks from The White House, The Willard has been at the doorstep of history here in the nation’s capital since it first opened in 1818. Situated on the presidential inaugural parade route, The Willard is centrally located along Pennsylvania Avenue, in the center of inauguration festivities, providing guests one of the most unique vantage points to witnessing this momentous event.

Did you Know Abraham Lincoln stayed at The Willard for ten days prior to his inauguration?
On February 23, 1861, amid fears for the safety of Lincoln, detective Alan Pinkerton brought the president-elect into Washington ahead of schedule, and by some accounts in disguise, where he took up lodging at Parlor 6 on the 2nd floor of The Willard. Lincoln would reside here with his family until his inauguration on March 4, 1861.
