3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Came for a conference, rooms are average, we didn't have a dresser at all, and the TV sat on the desk, so you can't really use the desk. The hotel is generally very clean, and the staff were friendly, but for the price I would've thought the rooms would've been a lot nicer...

We stayed for three nights and had an excellent time at the Hotel. The room was impeccable and well kept. A huge Hotel that is capable to accommodate meetings and conventions. We recommend it for its location and good service. We will definitely use it again next time we are at D.C.

We stayed at the Mayflower Hotel for one night and wished we had many more! Lauren M. & Darcy R. were absolutely great checking us in and providing historical knowledge of the hotel. Lauren made sure to help get us the best room available for my status at Marriott and the room exceeded all expectations! The rooms are very spacious,... More

We stayed here as part of a conference. We live in the area so it wasn't necessary for us to stay downtown but we thought it was the perfect opportunity to experience a historic hotel. I am so glad we made this decision. The atmosphere was lovely. The building is gorgeous and you can just feel the history within the... More

First off, we drove to D.C. from Chattanooga, TN. A 600 mile trip. I can the day before and ask about early check in, the manager says "yes we have early check in!" On the way to the hotel I call once again at 4am to make sure of it. Again, yes you can have an early check in at... More

I was tired and grumpy when I checked in last night, after delays at the airport pushed my late night even later. The gentleman who checked me in was calm, polite, and helpful. The room was quiet, clean, and just a wee bit luxurious. I slept well. All if this adds up to 5 stars in my opinion....but....when I got.... More

Yes I know Ike is no longer the President and Perle Mesta is no longer the hostess with the mostess but the Mayflower has got its grove back like it had when Chevy Chase was only the name of a Washington suburb.

My wife and son just spent 6 days in DC for our first visit and had the privilege of staying here. A tremendous amount of history surrounding this hotel and there are old photos everywhere. All of the staff were attentive and helpful getting around the city. We ate at Edgar's for lunch and it's what you'd expect at a... More

Location of hotel very good, I know the hotel from visits before renovation. It still has unfortunately the same very loud airconditions. All in all it was a bit worn out but they provided coffemachines. Now after the renovation - yes, rooms are nice, but that's the way it should be - the hotel removed the coffeemakers. Even if you...

Beautiful lobby, large room, well appointed bathroom.....where's the desk? I could not bleive the abundance of space but the lack of a work surface. It was hard to get work done. Concierge lounge is well run and has great snacks.
