The location can be a pain sometimes but with Uber in DC - all's good! Love the room layout/bathrooms/beds/linens etc. All top notch! Never was a late night check in this time (close to 11 pm) I was still given a great room. The gym facility is also good and having coffee/tea by the reception in the morning is always... More

We had a great time. The Hotel was unbelievable. Staff and food were excellent. Close walk to monuments and museums. Lovely Views from the rooms. Was able to do many day trips and staff recommended nighttime trip around monuments. A must. Whole different view.

I stayed here on business and had a room for several nights. When my business ran longer than expected i asked twice to have my stay extended, but the reservation department said no. I've always liked the mandarin but there kicking me out made me find a wonderful historic hotel downtown with better location, free wifi and cheaper parking. I... More

This was my third time staying at this lovely luxury property--always on business so I won't comment on room rate as I had a special rate. Rooms are comfortable and luxurious with huge bathrooms (bit enough to separate tub and shower). Staff is attentive and welcoming. The location can be a bit tricky--it is a few blocks of the national... More

My annual conference in DC returned to the Mandarin Oriental and I for one could not wait to return. It's everything I remembered it to be: friendly, accommodating, relaxing, comfortable, and hands down - the BEST and most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Worth the trip just to get a good night's rest. While a tad out of... More

My family and I stay annually in DC just after Thanksgiving. For the past few years we have stayed at the Ritz in Pentagon City. I decided to try out the Mandarin Oriental this year when there was a sale that reduced the price by more than 30%. Some of the plusses to staying at the M.O.: - Very helpful... More

We stayed here at the end of October for a family trip to Washington DC. The hotel is beautiful and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We arrived early in the morning well before check-in, and they quickly got our room ready. We were headed out to a tour. They gave us an access key to the Taipan Club... More

My husband and I have spent the last two Thanksgivings at the Mandarin Oriental, in Washington D.C.. I can honestly recommend this place to relax from stress and life in general! Stay on the Tai Pan floor, the private club is a treat! The hotel is beautiful and peaceful, the food from Muse fantastic and room service delicious! We intend... More

First time trying out this chain. Check in was smooth, actually they let us check in early which was nice. Beautiful lobby. The room is meh, nothing special. Very bland. Nice view on the Basin and the Jefferson Memorial. Bathroom looks better than the actual room, full of marble, with a separate shower. Hotel has 2 restaurants, one of which... More

This is a lovely hotel. Great accommodations and service. So incredibly close to everything you want to see as a tourist. We were here for a work event for my spouse so it was so handy for me to get wherever I wanted to go. I
