High points This hotel has an amazing lobby bar where you can enjoy drinks and food in great seating areas. Nice piano bar in the evenings. Fresh flowers are abundant and exquisite. Low points Pricey, and at these price points expect impeccable service and it is sometimes spotty. Also hope for the return of the chocolate martini!

This hotel is very accomodating for business and pleasure. The meeting rooms and catering service were perfect for the conference I attended. Driving straight to the hotel the first time was a bit tricky, but that's expected in downtown DC. I would recommend looking at a map and figuring it out the old fashioned way rather than having GPS talk... More

We did a "stay-cation" in our hometown of DC for a weekend and it was wonderful! The top tier restaurant in the hotel - Cityzen is NOT to be missed - even if not staying at the hotel. The lobby bar is fun! The hotel is beautifully appointed and the rooms are large and charming. They also have great views.

Beautiful hotel that treats all guests like royalty. I was given a free upgrade to a room with a view by calling the day of my check-in. They did not have to do that, but it went above and beyond, allowing my stay to be way better than expected. My only complaint was due to the young teenage girls hanging... More

The hotel itself is beautiful. Centrally located if you want to be near the Mall. The rooms are clean and beautiful. The gym is very modern with very new equipment. The service is always perfect. When i was there the African Summit was also taking place at the hotel and even with the massive volume of VIPs entering and exiting... More

Stayed her for business...the location is perfect, the atmosphere is lovely from the lobby, rooms and pool. Close to some amazing sites, we walked to many. Food at the conference was excellently prepared and served. Would love to go again sometime. My room was exceptional, could have camped out there for a week and never came out. View was of... More

It was a great stay and it´s a great hotel. You can´t go wrong. Love the atmosphere and the scrambled eggs for breakfast a-la-carte where amazing. Only wired thing is why they would have someone waitering in the lobby cafe area that does´t even smile. She was young but still, didn´t give good service at all. She was even rude.... More

If you're bringing a car to the Mandarin or hosting an event where guest will need to park...beware! Given the location of the hotel, if you're staying or attending an event at the hotel, you don't really have options for parking other than the hotel's valet service. During my stay, my car was brought back with a deep white gash... More

A disappointing hotel that falls way below standards you'd normally expect from a Mandarin Oriental hotel. Tired decor, cold front desk staff, charmless bar and a punchy price tag - there's really nothing to commend it. Stay away.
