This hotel was warm and inviting, as was the entire staff. My mother and I took a much needed weekend away, and we would not have had the same experience at any other location in DC. I would highly recommend this hotel.

From check-in to check-out, our experience at the Mandarin Oriental was wonderful. Every member of the staff we came in contact with was friendly and helpful. The bartender in the lounge (Art) was so knowledgeable and made us feel right at home! The room was on the small side, but very comfortable. The bathroom was beautiful and I could have... More

1) Great location: we drove down and the hotel is just off 295/395. Easy in and out and avoids all city traffic. walking distance to just about any museum or monument. 2) GREAT service: from check-in to valet to Muze staff, everyone was friendly, helpful e.g. I asked who made the toasted english muffin i was eating. The server called... More

This hotel used to be in great shape, but this past trip was horrible. The howling bathroom fan, other people's leftover hair still in shower, iron with black tar on it, filthy ironing pad, phone and light disconnected, broken TV, etc ... definitely not acceptable for a hotel of this caliber. The staff are friendly and the fitness center very... More

I bodyguard for a major entertainer. I always choose the Mandarin when we are in DC. We have stayed at other Mandarin's around the world, but this property is the best. Alex Ireland is the best hotel manager in the business. We sill always patronize this hotel when in DC

Given the price of the rooms and the perceived quality of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group I expected much more in the way of service and amenities. When you check-in you can opt for a complimentary morning paper but must choose between USA Today or the Washington Post. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean that it will show up at your door... More

More than 5 stars! Exemplary service for business and personal leisure. The Mandarin Oriental Washington DC is my home away from home. World class service with aplomb. Providing world class service and accommodations, equally impressive and tailored for impressing clients and closing business deals, as well as providing cherished and priceless family memories and childhood dreams come true. Have been... More

Stayed here for a wedding and received a reasonable wedding discount, I would not have been able to afford this hotel otherwise. I can see why people love this hotel because it is beautiful with first class facilities, lobby pool, and common areas.. My room was spacious with a nice view. The Jefferson Memorial and Tidal Basin are a very... More

I could not have been more impressed! I've stayed at many hotels for work and pleasure - this is now my favorite! Every aspect of the hotel was immaculate and personalized! Room service is brought to you on a white table-clothed rolling cart. Bedroom slippers are so comfy as is your bath robe. I didn't want to leave!

I spent 3 nights at the Mandarin Oriental with my husband and sons. The hotel is in a great location and the staff is friendly and helpful. Check in was easy and the room was clean neat. Some of the furnishings could use an update. We had a water view which was also a plus. Valet parking is costly. The... More
