In case you thought the Four Seasons or the Ritz had the corner on the luxury market they don't. There may not be many Mandarin Oriental hotels but each is as good as it gets. From the time you arrive at the door there is an an about the hotel that seems a bit unique. A relaxing place to be!

I went for a business conference and was so pleased by the hotel. The staff was very professional, the rooms were beautiful and very updated (and clean!), and everyone else in the hotel was very helpful and nice. Definitely one of the top hotels. AND, I had a view of the harbor and my co-worker had a view of the... More

Beautiful hotel! My husband and I stayed there last Friday for a romantic getaway and it did not disappoint. Highly attentive staff, lovely room with view and Muze restaurant was perfect for dinner and breakfast. Lynn at the Concierge was amazing. Can't wait to return!

My husband and I brought our children to DC for a weekend of sightseeing. We have never stayed in a Mandarin Oriental hotel and we loved our experience. Upon check in they gave the kids stuffed panda bears and could not have been more accommodating. The concierge team was great, recommending kid-friendly activities and helping us with reservations. The hotel... More

Dear ba7007, Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC is consistently recognized as being one of the best kid-friendly luxury hotels in the nation's capital. Even our youngest fans receive the warmest welcome (and a panda, but that's supposed to be a surprise!) and our concierge team can put together fun family itineraries to make the most of a visit. Of course, kids... More

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

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.
