There are a number of great hotels in Washington, but the Mandarin has to be top of the list, and I've stayed at all of them. Beautiful facility, wonderful place for a series of meetings or a conference, staff is superbly trained and friendly. A go to spot business or pleasure, extremely convenient.

From the moment you arrival you fall in love with this hotel! The staff is amazing and the rooms are beautiful. I have stayed once a year for the last seven years and it just keeps getting better, and better and better.

Stayed for a family trip to see the sights in September. I LOVED this location- we were a nice walk to many metro stations, which we used heavily. We went all over town, logged lots of foot miles and came back to this fantastic room at the end of the night. I too loved the bathrooms- one of the best... More

The Mandarin Oriental was really nice. The hotel is first class. My only issue is that its a bit outside of the sights and restaurant area. You have to take a car or cab to just about anywhere worth going to.

Top quality hotel--truly home away from home. Close to all of the activity including Metro stops to everywhere. Very friendly staff. All you have to do is ask and they will take care of your every need.

I traveled to the Mandarin Oriental on a recent weekend seminar trip and was amazed by the friendly staff and attention to detail in all facets of the hotel. The front desk staff and concierge were very helpful and, since it was Chinese New Year, several touches added to the experience (red envelope with money to bring luck in the... More

One of the advantages of this property is that it's location helps avoid heavy City traffic. It's still an easy walk to some of DC's main attractions. There's a lovely water view from the restaurants and lobby. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I like the imaginative music video's that are playing in the room.

Loved the beauty and luxury of this hotel. Room is simply gorgeous. Bathroom is awesome with a deep soaking tub and large shower along with marble floors. Loved the "do not disturb" doorbell like light/button vs a door sign that falls off every time you open the door. Had a room with view of the water. Classy. Con - restaurant... More

The hotel service is first rate -- or better! The staff is very attentive and treat you like royalty when you arrive -- giving you a hot towel for washing hands/face and some tea. The rooms are lovely, with the bathroom bordering on luxurious. The food for the conference/symposium I attended was good, but not great. The gym is too... More

The staff really set this property apart from all others. They are extremely friendly and really try to anticipate your needs. The rooms are exceptionally clean and the bathrooms are completely luxurious. It can be a tad pricey but generally worth it. The location is also perfect.
