The Willard Intercontinental has observed the holidays in grand fashion since 1986. Grab a spiked
warmer such as the Harrison's Spiced Apple Cider from the Round Robin bar ($15), and tour the ornate Beaux-Arts building, where columns are encircled in greenery and ornaments and small trees line the halls. Then, behold the Willard's grand 14-foot tree, which will be dotted with more than 300 official White House Christmas ornaments from the past 30 years. The collectibles are issued each year by the White House Historical Association; look out for this year's trinket, a charming classic car that symbolizes the Taft White House, the first to embrace the automobile.
