I was so disappointed with our experience at the Mayflower. As we were driving back from Philly, it got late on us and we decided it would be better for us to stop in D.C than to continue the drive through. Being we were only going to be in D.C. for one night and just to sleep (arriving about 11 and leaving about 8am), we looked for a hotel through a 3rd party website. We booked the mystery room and were assigned the Mayflower. As soon as it was booked, we realized it never asked us for the size bed and we were needing 2 doubles. We called the hotel and a nice young woman answered the phone, we explained we had just booked online and we werent given an option but that we were needing 2 double beds. She said no problem, she had already fixed it. We arrived, exhausted, to the hotel about 11. Checked in and went to the room to find we were in a king bed. We called back down and the gentleman,Ali, said oh yes I see here you are in a double - let me get that fixed right away. He called back and then said, no he didnt have another room. We said, you JUST said you saw it was a double and he DENIED saying that. We went down to discuss with him and he said that we were 4 people instead of 2 and we advised him again that we had made an error when booking and had called and let the young woman know almost immediately after booking and she had said it would not be a problem. He advised that we were on a timeshare floor and he couldnt move us to the "main floor". He offered a roll away. We asked the size and he said a full so we agreed. When we got the rollaway it was clearly a twin. The person who brought it up said "this is all we got". At this point, we tried calling one more time but he had blocked our room calls and we were unable to reach the front desk. We were so exhausted that we just made it work and left early the next day. The bathroom door also didnt close as it was broken. The bathroom was not very clean but hey - we were on the timeshare floor... I travel alot for business,so let me tell you - this was one of the worst experiences that I have ever had. He clearly did not want to beleive we had made an error when booking (that we tried to immediately fix. He had no intention of trying to help us or make it right even tough we had already talked to an employee at the hotel and accused us of lying even though he clearly told us he saw we had a double booked. We didnt realize we were segregated to one floor by booking through a 3rd party. It was an awful experience and we felt very embarassed by the way we were treated. The hotel itself is beautiful but I guess our disheveled tired selves werent good enough for their "regular floor". NEVER AGAIN.

Overall speaking, it is an average hotel with no good surprise. The staff and manager is very helpful and understand why I need to change the rooms (before entering the room it has been opened already, the bed is dirty). I would like to say the breakfast and all the interiors are good, and it can remind you of the old history. The location is great that you can reach many good places. Like this hotel but if some tiny details can be improved, it will be "love" this hotel.

I felt as if I was stepping back into time! The hotel staff to the marble finishings. This hotel is probably the most beautiful hotel I have stepped into. Close to everything and easy access to everything Washington DC!

The Mayflower is gorgeous and this was my 2nd hotel from the Autograph Collection which truly makes you feel like you're staying in luxury. My stay occurred during the recent social distancing requirements from COVID-19, so the hotel had to shut down the club lounge and cut back on housekeeping. But the hotel staff were very kind and found ways to make my stay pleasant. For example, they provided vouchers to use the Edgar restaurant for breakfast. And the Edgar restaurant had some great food. The hotel property is quite large and it took a while to realize how many entrances/exits there were. But I was glad the Farragut North metro stop was around the block. My room was comfortable and the gym was large. These are difficult times for hotels, but the staff at the Mayflower made my stay comfortable and for that I'm very grateful. Looking forward to returning back one day.

Location is great. Able to walk to most attractions in DC. Dropping off in front of the hotel is challenging since it is on a major and busy street. The front entry doors were hard to manage when you have luggage and no one is there to help you with the door. While we were stayed there for five days, a door man was at the front door only half the time. Our first night, we discovered there was no linen on the pulled out bed at bed time (10:20 p.m.), we had to called for linen to bring to the room, twice. It finally came an hour later. Same with the bellhop to get luggage, he never came after I was told by the front desk that some one will be right up. I finally went to the front desk to inquire. The reason that I was given by the bellhop was he went to the room and no one was there. That took an hour. The last day of our staying, we put the sign out to request room service as we left the room at noon. When we got back at 10 p.m., the sign remained on the door and room was not cleaned. Hotel was grant. Service could be better, at the front desk too. The only pleasant experience was during check in. So sorry that I didn't see her again and do not remember her name. She was very prompt and professional, unlike others at the desk. Not sure if windows are double panned since we hear loud noise from the street even we are at the 9th floor.
