“Large clean rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

This is a grand old hotel that is a little worn around the edges. That being said, the rooms are clean and spacious (easily big enough for a rollaway), the staff is helpful (except for a couple of the older bellhops), and the location is great right near a Metro stop and within walking distance of most important sites in DC. You probably don't want to come with a car, though, as the daily parking charges are astronomical. Keep your eyes out for deals on rooms.

The Mayflower offers the best location to all the things that I want to see and do in Washington, while traveling with my Shiba Inu...

I was here for Easter Weekend to visit my brother who is attending George Washington University - it was perfect as the hotel is within walking distance. We walked everywhere from here to the Tidal Basin and Monuments - even my dog didn't complain. We walked to The White House daily for our morning walk and really enjoyed the neighborhood - National Geographic is across the street as well. Farragut Square is only 2 blocks away and always has yummy food trucks at lunch time. There are also 2 metro stations within 2-3 blocks.

I was very impressed with the hotel's level of customer service - We arrived well before check in time and was not expecting for our room to be ready at all; however, Chelsea at the Front Desk made it happen for me. She was professional and very nice. Everyone I encountered with during my 4-day stay went above what was expected - from housekeeping to bell desk to the restaurant.

I loved the public areas of the hotel - everything was so clean and well-maintained - walking into the lobby makes you feel like you just stepped back in time to the Gilded Age. The mezzanine lounge is also a great waiting area complete with flat-screen TVs and work stations overlooking the expansive reception.

My room was spacious and very quiet - it had everything that I needed for a comfortable and well-rested stay. My only wish was that the bar/fridge was fully stocked - it would've been nice to have the option of buying snacks or drinks in my room :(

I will definitely consider staying here again the next time I am in DC!

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor room

I stayed here for a conference. The hotel did a fantastic job supporting our conference, however, a small complaint was the noise made by the staff in the back access hallways during the speakers was a bit rude. But otherwise, the rooms were delightful, the staff was wonderful! I so enjoyed talking to them the week I was there, from the breakfast staff to Edgars bartender at night. Each one was delightful, the hotel beautiful and comfortable.

I was here for a black tie event and also spent the night in one of the beautiful two room suites. The hotel is in a very centrally located location in downtown Washington, DC, and offers a wonderful art deco experience with a great restaurant (although service in the restaurant could have been a little quicker - had to wait a little long for my drink!). The room was amazingly comfortable with all sorts of amenities. In fact, I nicked myself shaving and a quick phone call down to the front desk sent a hotel employee up to my room with a couple of band-aids and neosporane ointment. How's that for service?

Room Tip: As to be upgraded to one of the suites - there are a lot of them!

I checked into this hotel after I booked it a few months in advance and I was told the hotel was overbooked and they sent me to the Omni. I was disappointed because this other hotel was 2 miles away and I could not walk across the street to my office. However, the Mayflower was accommodating and they did not charge me for that night and gave me a suite for the rest of our stay. I did see the regular rooms though and they were very small. The hotel is in a great location. Walking distance to the White House and all the Monuments and Dupont Circle. I also walked a few miles to Georgetown.

I have the pleasure of staying at the Mayflower in DC each January for a professional organization conference. We have been using the Mayflower for this conference for over 15 yrs, and each year it is a delight to return. Although recent renovations have improved the logistics of the meeting space, I can't help but mourn the loss of the gorgeous restaurant in the center of the ground floor. Having afternoon tea under the stained glass roof was a truly zen experience. The rooms are clean, spacious, and retain historical charm. I stay in many cement and glass box hotels around the world, so it is a great treat to be in one that has warm personality and a touch of class!
