I recently attended a business conference in Washington DC and stayed at the Marriott Mayflower Renaissance. This hotel is one of the grand dames of hotels in the DC area.
If you want to be convenient to a large amount of restaurants and within walking distance to the Washington monuments, you can not get much closer. The variety of near by restaurants is outstanding, and you really get a flavor of DC by walking to them and other places. I would recommend if you are planning to dine at one of the better restaurants in the area make your reservations well ahead of time. DC is always busy. There really is no off season here.
The Mayflower room I had was clean and elegant, but not very large. A suggestion I would make to the hotel is that since many of their visitors are on business, they should have the desk set up to allow watching TV while working. Instead the TV and desk faced opposite directions.
There is no doubt that this hotel gets a large amount of conferences and business travelers.
I would not recommend it for families. The atmosphere is very professional and elegant, but not a good fit for children.
If traveling to DC on business this is a good choice. If bringing family, I would consider other options.
