We spent the weekend in DC and overall we enjoyed our stay at the Mayflower and would stay again. In general, the pros outweighed the cons: Pros - The Bellhop was really friendly and helpful, telling us about the hotel and area. - The room was small, but clean and the mattress was pretty comfortable. - It's a 30 minute...

This hotel has been around since the 1930's when my mom started going there for Greek dances. My mom called it the gem of DC back in the day. It still is. Best service. Lea Gunderson checked me in on a very busy day in 60 seconds flat. I've been here many times and her commitment to quality service is... More

Stayed here for two nights during spring break and really enjoyed the stay. The staff that I encountered,from the doorman to housekeeping, were all helpful and friendly. We had two rooms and they were both spacious and clean. Hotel was also within walking distance to a variety of attractions and restaurants in the DuPont Circle section of DC.

My family and I stayed at this hotel for five nights during Spring Break and only have positive things to say about the room (not huge but clean and well appointed) and lobby (magnificent). Our check in experience was friendly and the staff at the front door were also very pleasant. In addition, the hotel has hosted many inaugural balls... More

Just checked in and was told that my 3 people party (all grown ups) won't have a room with 2 queen sized beds but instead 1 king size and a rollaway. The rollaway was not in the room when we got there even though we spend quite some time getting our stuff out of the car. The rollaway bed is... More

On arrival, you'll find a beautiful, traditional Washington hotel with public areas that have been well maintained. The public areas on the first floor have beautiful chandeliers and gold trim, and you can see what this hotel was before it became part of a chain. I also attended business meetings at the hotel, and their meeting rooms are very accommodating,... More

Purpose of stay: I travel regularly on business, and booked a two night stay on business (elite status with Marriott, Starwood, Hyatt), with the Marriott being preferred due to locations within walking distance of meetings. Initial impression, Check-In: The lobby was nice, clean and everyone at the front desk was courteous, professional and friendly. Initial Assigned Room: Room appeared to... More

As frequent Marriott guests, my husband and I were very disappointed with this hotel. We arrived on a Friday evening and were immediately told they had no rooms for us due to a "maintenance problem" and had to relocate us to another Marriott hotel. There were people checking in all around us (clearly no maintenance problem), but we were the... More

Stunningly beautiful architecture, old world charm and all the infrastructure necessary to make this a first class experience... but for operations. 20 minutes in the check in line with 2 people staff on the desk and one completely engrossed in a dispute with an older woman over a 75 cent charge of some kind. All the while managers walked around,... More
