“Pure elegance”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

This hotel was easy, making for a great trip. The service was impeccable, the room superior, location superb. You just couldn't ask for any better and at a tremendous value compared to other hotels in the area. I highly recommend it.

Slow check in, slower valet and no late night room service. On the positive side, the staff are friendly and the location is great.

I would suggest getting a standard double over a suite as the value add of the suite wasn't substantial

What you expect from a higher-tier Marriott property, overall very good property, historic, a neat option to the usual blah hotels. Of course, with an older property there are some wear things, such as some of the windows are a little drafty, the doors sometimes a little loose and wobble when someone down the hall slams thier door. But those are small matters, overall a very nice hotel, great lounge, downstairs lobby areas are all rdone and housekeeping, bell staff, etc are top tier as well. Decent gym. Close to Farragut North station METRO, and a shortish walk to WH or any of the federal things going on around the main area. Kind of old-world comfy. If you get lucky you might get one of tehe very large suites, they have a fair amount of those and status can get you an upgrade more often than not.

Room Tip: I would go with the 8th floor or higher, ask for a north-side room on the side street. Front road w...

I visited this hotel for a conference at this hotel. The location is good for site seeing and shopping. The staff is very accommodating. The fitness room is adequate and meeting facilities were good. The hotel has one restaurant that is also adequate and there are lots of good eating options within walking distance. the rooms are small but also adequate with nice toiletries, robes, desk area and refrigerator. The noise that can be heard from the hall is very bad. The room rattles when a nearby door closes and you can hear anything in the hall. The valet parking is the most I have paid anywhere and we have stayed in many other large cities. With that said the valet was willing to go to my car and bring my coat which I left by accident. (Nice tip of course)

The Mayflower may once have been a great hotel. It no longer is. The rooms and halls are old and tired. The heating system needs an overhaul. The service is uneven--great to awful. Fast and helpful checkin despite a crowd in the lobby. Can't get coffee and paper in the morning while leaving and the few staff around don't care. The gym is nice and the bar comfortable. It is ok but there are better options near by.

As 4.5 stars goes this was only half of them. I arrived by taxi and no bell service was available as they were chatting inside. (A habit that continued throughout my stay. They did not once open the door for me.)I checked into a moderately sized room overlooking an alley way with a loud quirky heating system. Had this been a three star it would have been about right but no way is this 4.5 stars. The pillows were small and hard and the linens on the bed too short. I did not sleep well the entire stay. The beauty of the lobby is far outweighed by the merely average experience in the rooms.

This hotel was ideal for the conference I was attending. Very confortable, great staff, good food. A stroll away from the White House and also DC's nightlife. Quintessential American hospitality. Swimming pool not part of hotel but facilities good. I would definitely recommend it to friends and colleagues.

Room Tip: swimming pool not part of hotel
