“Convenient Upscale Hotel”
Reviewed 7 November 2013 via mobile

The staff at the Manadrin could not have been nicer or more helpful. They upgraded us to a water view. We looked out over the Jefferson Memorial. The room was quiet and well appointed. The bed was extremely comfortable and the pillows were awesome. Large bathroom with powerful shower, plus towels, robes, etc. Very expensive bar, $12 for a glass of wine! Neede to call romm service to get ice even though an ice bucket in the room. TV was on the blink but were told tvs are slowly being replaced. Very convenient location to the mall. Pot Belly Sandwich shop right outside but closes early and not open on Sunday's.

Stayed October 2013, travelled as a couple

Basic a carbon copy of San Fran hotel, minimalist furniture, but an expansive bathroom and nice view of the Potomac, Very helpful concierge. A very short ride to the airport, and close to Ebbett's grill.

Room Tip: Overlook the river.

Super location in DC. You can easily walk the National Mall from the Lincoln Memorial all the way to the Capital Building. The hotel is a little non-descript from the outside but once you get inside it is beautiful and in pristine condition. All the staff I interacted with were incredibly friendly and helpful. I had clean room, comfortable bed with a great view. Definitely would visit again on business or for a personal trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a room over looking the Jefferson Memorial and marina.

My wife and I stayed here in middle October and really enjoyed the hotel. The rooms feel like spas with spacious baths. Their is even a flat screen tv in the bath. The views are ok. Most face the parking lot. Ask for the Jefferson Memorial view

So nice to receive the Mandarin Oriental style welcome, in the US. No line; warm and cheerful desk staff; quickly finished and escorted to the elevator, all of which is calming after a trip.

I forgot my razor and toothbrush, and debated whether I had time to call for them and wait for them to arrive, or if I had to go to the lobby myself, possibly look for a convenience store. It's the Mandarin Oriental, knocking on my door a bare minute after I called... Service!

Ordered grilled chicken breast (au jus) from the room service menu... Worth going back just for that!

I thought I might be over looking the Capitol or Jefferson memorial, but this is what I see from my Deluxe City View Room. I also expected in room coffee, tea, refrigerator and microwave for the amount being charged, but I only have an honor bar and ice bucket. I guess the welcome an service at the front desk set my expectations too high for the sleeping room I was assigned.

The Mandarin never fails to impress. Top notch service and the spacious bathrooms for a Washington DC hotel is great!
Can't ask for much view in DC but facing the marina is excellent!
Great lobby lounge staff!
