We chose this hotel for its presumed elegance and historical importance. It is a shame that the current management cannot live up to just basic hotel-management procedures. Every day at 8 AM we had a housekeeping lady asking whether she could make our room or to have an indication of at what time she could come in. Can you not... More

Work conference at this great old DC property! Nice atmosphere (especially the nightly free Happy Hour with candy and cocktails in the lobby!) Loved that all the rooms were unique. Nice meeting space. Service was not great, but ok.

Took a business trip down to DC. Arrived around 4 PM. Original room had water leaking down the bathroom mirror onto the sink area. Went down to lobby, and front desk gave me another (upgraded per request) room. Had a 6 PM reception/dinner. Went to take a shower around 5, and there was no hot water. Called the "at your... More

the lobby was unbelievable and you could see all the Presidential history throughout. Was also a very conveniently located hotel. However, my room was extremely dated and looked out at the A/C and opposite office building. With all that said, the hotel top floors were in major rehab... Which is much needed. Imagine, this will be a great place to... More

I visited in December for a conference held at the hotel. The staff was very friendly, the rooms are clean and luxurious, and the location is perfect. If you are a runner, you are 500 meters from the national mall and the rock creek park. There is also a fitness center in the hotel. A nice place for conferences with... More

I had never stayed at this hotel, but glad it was selected for me with it being a last minute booking. Check in was easy and the room was nice and cool upon arrival on a hot day. The room had plenty of chargers/outlets for electronics, had HDTV (the channels, not just the TV), and the bed was comfy. A... More

We stayed three nights at this property one weekend, late November. I chose the hotel because the rate included a Club level room and access to the Club lounge which we always find useful for breakfast and for grabbing a coffee after a day's sightseeing. Our first disappointment was finding the lounge closes at midday on Fridays and doesn't open... More

Thank you for sharing both the pros and cons of your recent stay at The Mayflower Renaissance Hotel. We are very excited as our rooms will be fully renovated with a safe in the room by late spring/early summer. As for the lounge hours, we do follow the company policy and I apologize for the miscommunication. We hope you do... More

The Congressional Suite is beautiful. Much bigger than similar suites at other hotels. Great for entertaining. Bathroom is small for a suite. Great service at front desk and room service. Beautifully decorated for Christmas.

This was my first stay at this property and it was very pleasant, despite the ongoing renovations. I stayed on the 5th floor, because higher floors were being renovated. The exec lounge on the 8th floor was still accessible, though only from one set of elevators. But, those elevators were very close to my room, so that was not a... More

The Mayflower is an excellent hotel with an exceptional history. Its location, access to the metro, and nearby shopping and dining are hard to beat. However, the design of the hotel means that you're never quite sure what type of room you are going to end up with and I've had a different style room the three times I've stayed... More
