A special experience. T We stayed for an anniversary dinner at CitiZen and loved everything about the hotel. Check in was quick and the front desk clerk walked us to the elevator. The room was spacious, modern with a comfortable sitting area and beautiful bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. We were given a complimentary upgrade overlooking the Potomac River.... More

This hotel has to be one of the nicest I have ever stayed at. From the curb to the bed and everywhere in-between, I felt like I was their favorite guest and appreciated. Great food, meeting rooms, spa, fitness facility, front desk staff, bellmen, concierge - all were outstanding.

Great room, attentive staff, great bathroom. Only complaint is the short hours available at pool as times were reduced and not communicated on web site nor when I checked in. If you're touring make sure you swim in the morning before you go sightseeing!

Love the hotel. Wonderful facilities. Fantastic service. You also get to pay for that. The special rate I had for a conference was $325/night. Still, if you like luxury and are able and willing to pay for it, it's wonderful. Maybe the best shower I've ever had in a hotel. Great views. I looked out over the Jefferson Memorial.

I stayed at the Mandarin Oriental for five nights on a business trip. This was my second stay and I enjoyed it as much as the first time. The check-in process was prompt and the staff courteous. I was offered a refreshment and a hot towel while checking in. The lobby at this hotel was very impressive with its extensive... More

Second time at this property. Pre-Check In: Booked through Amex and contacted Mr. Harleth (Front Desk Manager) to ensure connecting rooms. Response was prompt and communications was good. Also inquire about setting up a table outside of the pool area for a small pre-birthday gathering for my daughter. All went seamlessly. Check In: Front desk check in was a breeze.... More

Excellent service ~ the concierge and restaurant staff really went out of their way to provide for my mother's breakfast tofu requests..... it was very cute. This hotel must have been stunning when it opened. However, it has unfortunately been quite run down and is in serious need of some renovation. From broken drawers and unappealing bathtubs to underwhelming spa... More

Not for the budget traveler, but superior service and very well appointed rooms. Close walking distance to major DC sites. Excellent fitness center. Use the concierge for restaurant suggestions and for tips of walking to historical attractions.
