The Mandarin was beautiful and the location right on the river has gorgeous views. The staff was helpful and communicative as I arrived before check-in time due to business travel times and they did their best to work me in early. The accommodations were luxurious – from the comfortable bedding to the marble bathroom. I used the gym and it...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed February 14, 2017

This is a beautiful facility with incredible service. Friendly, prompt, easy-going, Also a great value. The room was nice size, had a great view of the Washington Monument and the Potomac River. Slightly off the beaten path so there isn't much traffic. Worth the visit and the bit of extra cash for the room.

Great hotel, well presented, great room service, comfortable beds. Would recommend but at a premium cost I would strongly recommend the expensive internet becomes complementary. Overall, enjoyable stay, a little further away from the centre of town but the walk there is not to bad and very picturesque.

From the moment I entered the property, it was clear that I would be staying in a luxury hotel. And, I was absolutely not disappointed, except for the fact that I'd only be spending one night there. I had a wonderful view of the Washington Monument from my 7th floor window. I was staying alone, and was given a room...

The hotel is amazing, comfortable, and immaculate. The only reason I gave it a 3 is that they put an $840.00 hold on my debit card. I stay at hotels a lot and usually they put no more than a $300.00 hold on the card and it IMMEDIATELY drops off within 24 hours, however this is now day 2 and...

First family trip to DC, for college graduation. Perfect location, walking distance to National Mall, closest to Smithsonians and Washington Monument. Beautiful hotel, lovely room, and amazing hospitality. Although other reviews complain about noise from the train that passes the hotel, we barely noticed it, even though the tracks were outside of our room. It was a lovely experience.

On my latest business trip to D.C., I had yet another opportunity to stay at the Mandarin Oriental. This hotel continues to blow me away. The location, property, accoutrements, rooms, beds and bathrooms are absolutely superlative. Oh, and the food is simply outstanding. Great service and staff too. I stay at some of the world's best hotels on my weekly...

First of all, I see why this place is one of the only 5 star hotels anywhere in the world. From the moment you arrive, to the front desk staff, to the rooms, completely luxurious. As a world traveler, some of the details in the rooms that most people would take for granted, I came to enjoy. The cedar lined...
