Willard InterContinental Washington Crystal Room

Title

Willard InterContinental Washington Crystal Room

Description

For his final project, Prince hired Sarah Tomerlin Lee of Tom Lee, Ltd. to restore the glamour and sumptuousness of the lobby, Peacock Alley, the Crystal and Willard Rooms, the Ladies Lounge, the Robin Bar, and the oval suites including the Presidential.

The Crystal Room's fluted pilasters and green scagliola columns, crystal chandeliers and sconces reflect its turn of the century opulence. Located just off Peacock Alley, the Crystal Room accommodates 210 banquet style and up to 250 for a reception.
