I stayed for a few nights at the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel in Washington DC because I was attending a professional conference there. Immediately struck by the classic elegance and charm, I was also fascinated by the history connected with this 88-year-old hotel. Every U.S. Presidential Inaugural ball since Calvin Coolidge has been held here, and in one of the rooms Franklin Roosevelt wrote his 1933 inaugural address (“the only thing we have to fear is fear itself”). A long list of celebrities and international royalty have also stayed here. Just four blocks from the White House, the hotel is conveniently located next to a Metro stop, making it easy to get to from the airport and to navigate throughout the city. My guest room was much more spacious than I had anticipated, well equipped, and very clean. The hotel has a smoke-free policy. The bathroom was small but sufficient, with stylish marble, and the shower had a strong stream of water that remained nicely hot, but the towels were not very soft. The king size bed was very comfortable with a duvet style comforter and nice sheets. I was disappointed that there was a daily charge for Internet use. Staff were efficient, professional, and very gracious. When visiting Washington DC for vacations, I usually stay outside the city to avoid the high rates at hotels like this.

The hotel was renovated very nicely and is more beautiful than ever. They managed to retain the historic feel but added modern touches that add to a comfortable stay for guests. The biggest plus for me is that rooms are very spacious. I would definitely recommend this hotel. It is located right next to a Metro station also so getting around the city is easy.

Surprisingly spacious room for the heart of DC. Centrally located with a great lobby. The breakfast on the club level was good (and free!) Would recommend this property for business or family get away.

Great hotel with excellent location and great customer service. Their concierge floor breakfast and happy hour are a terrific value and the staff are friendly and helpful. Just a short walk to theWhite House an many other DC attractions. I stayed here for several months during a special assignment in DC. I enjoyed the hotel location for its proximity to my work but also or it's locale to many other things as a tourist during my off hours. During warmer months it was a short walk up to the many eating areas around DuPont Circle. I am a walker and trekking to the Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and MLK monuments was not an issue. But the hotel is also right next to the orange, blue and red lines - so there were always lots of options for getting around. The rooms are modern, comfortable and quiet.

The hotel staff was attentive and friendly. We had a large room at the end of a hallway. The bathroom was clean as was the rest of the room. Highly recommend this historic hotel for a stay in DC. Walking distance to most Capital attractions

Room Tip: Request a large room, some rooms were very small, but ours was at the end of a hallway and very large.
