An excellent and traditional hotel located within few minutes walk of the metro. Check in was speedy and seamless. Our room was on the 9th floor with front facing views, we had two double beds (very comfortable), an ideal sized room for a family. There was also a large bathroom. Complimentary tea and coffee was provided, plus a fridge. We... More

An historic hotel in the heart of DC, the Mayflower is a very nice and centrally located place to stay very close to the big spots. On New Year's Eve, they ran a special combining a large room with very late check out and dinner/breakfast with parking. Not cheap by any stretch, but a good way to spend the holiday... More

Such a nice touch. Our room was a nice good size and very clean. The bed was comfy and the bedding was soft. The bathroom... More

We stayed because my fiancé had work. I spent the days visiting the Nine West and Peet's Coffee daily as well as of course seeing the grand sites of Washington, D.C., all within walking distance. It was a beautiful hotel with good service. After staying in New Orleans at the Hyatt it was a step backwards as far as technology... More

This hotel is just like the old hotels in London, having older furniture and carpets... It’s location in the downtown (a 10 min walk from the White House) made it ideal for us, for travailing by foot. However, for those who do not like the idea of old or even a historical places, i suggest you to look for a... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to spend a few nights at this lovely, old hotel in July. The beautiful structure is on the National Historic Register. It has an elegant lobby where coffee was served in the morning, and where we were treated to lemonade and macaroons one afternoon. The location is great and we walked to the... More

Great classic hotel with a storied past, close to White House and most of the monuments within walking distance. Great food in Lobby restaurant and great service. Concierge arranged for a car for us to see memorials at night. Great value given the bus options if you are a party of 4 to 6. Our girlfriends getaway to see our... More

Great location (very close to Metro station, and Dupont Circle with lots of bars and restaurants), decor in the main lobby area is grand, hotel's Edgar bar is open until late (with post-dinner snack options),...

I stayed here in June 2014 for a weekend following a week of meetings at another hotel on the basis that this was a top notch hotel. It's slogan: "The second best address in Washington" is from another time. This is a classic old-school hotel with a renovated lobby that is living on its former glory. Not all of the... More
