We visit the Mandarin yearly for out anniversary and it never disappoints. The restaurant in the hotel is expensive and only ok, but the ambiance is outstanding as are the rooms and hospitality. The Tai Pan Lounge (especially Adham - the bartender) is a great perk - good drinks, snacks, and breakfast options.

This is a great hotel. Superb location. Fantastic staff. The Club Lounge was outstanding. I read some reviews that indicated that the food or the wine in the lounge was substandard compared to the Ritz. I have stayed at the Ritz Club level many times. I found the Mandarin Oriental's Club Lounge to be equal to the Ritz. I am... More

We stayed for 2 nights with my parents and had access to the club lounge and spa. One of the best hotel experiences we have had. Michelle and Adham are exceptional staff and the overall experience was very satisfying. Look forward to going back!!

Dear pranita1303, Isn't our Club experience great? Its not just the breakfast but the additional amenities that I hope you were able to enjoy: garment pressing, late checkout, evening reception, the Bowers & Wilkins Sound Bar, house car service, all day beverages, the relaxing atmosphere of the Club Lounge and the service of great hospitality professionals like Michelle and Adham....

I looked at all the hotels close to the dept of education and the Mandarin was cheaper than the residence inn! Amazing, personal attention. Worth every cent. Would recommend in a heartbeat. Terrific, knowledgeable staff.

This is an above average hotel in an unusual though convenient SW DC location. The proximity to the south Mall and museums is great. However, it is not a true Mandarin Oriental like others I've stayed in. Check-in was fine, though a bit longer wait than I would have liked. The lobby is attractive but lacks adequate seating. I booked... More

I overnighted here briefly to visit some old friends in town. As many other MOs around the world, the service really made me feel relaxed throughout my short stay. Room is tastefully furnished without visible wear and tear. Breakfast buffet selection was somewhat limited comparing to Asian MOs but quality was equally good. Location is about perfect if you value... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Mandarin Oriental and enjoyed our stay. We were upgraded to a suite as we were celebrating my Father-in-law's 75th birthday. The room was great!
