My husband and I are currently staying at the MO Washington for the weekend of oct 15, 2021 and for a five star hotel experience, this has been pretty lack luster thus fur. No coffee machine in the rooms, if you want one, you would have to request it and pay 30 dollars. This is kinda silly when you’re already shelling out 400 dollars a night for a room. Nice tub but they don’t offer bath salts or any other bath amenities which defeats the purpose of having such a nice tub in the room. Sinks not properly cleaned. When you book at a five star, what you’re paying for is the little details and quite frankly, it has been missing at this location.Don’t think we will ever stay at another mandarin oriental after this

Friendly staff. Clean but small room although it was a deluxe King with a view. Due to covid no dinner dining except for in small lobby bar. Limited menu. Sushi bar closed. Great location for walking to museums & monuments.Enjoyed our stay but would like to return when everything is open.

The entire staff were so friendly. The rooms are spotless. We stayed at a top floor suite room with a balcony. The view of the harbor was perfect. The rooms are very large and well appointed. The morning breakfast was very extensive. It was a perfect hotel to stay.

Let me remind you this Hotel is located in the United States of America’s Capital and is one of top luxury brands these days! I chose this hotel based on the trust on the brand and the location facing the Potomac River. Where should I begin my disappointments: - Breakfast buffet is a joke! Something you expect at an airport midlevel hotel. There was no bread or bagel station and not because of Covid as there was a coruscant basket there but no bread or even a toaster to heat up the coruscant. No verity of juice, no verity of fruit yogurt , and guess what! If you want to order eggs Benedict they don’t have eggs Benedict neither on the restaurant nor on the room service! Overall don’t expect something facinating that makes you to run for the breakfast, just something you find in your house! - I gave up on the buffet and start ordering room service for the breakfast. Ridiculously, when they send a sunny side up eggs they do not send a toast with it, next morning when I ask for the toast for the eggs the answer was they can replace the toast with the pastry on the pastry basket!!!!!!! How cheap, have you ever heard such a thing in a luxury hotel that they don’t give you toast for your eggs and count it as a pastry? Unbelievable!! Even in cheesecake factory bread is free, apparently this hotel needs more money than them! - Apparently for the sake of being green, they replaced the shampoo and conditioner bottles with refill jars on the wall. But what they do NOT do is refilling it! Middle of the shower you realize there is not even a drop conditioner and you have to leaver the shower call the house keeping ( which is another disaster) and ask them to bring you conditioner. - Now house keeping! If you want to sleep they call you non stop when to come in and clean but when they come in they do not make the bed right, they don’t take the food left over dishes out, they don’t clean the bathroom floor which leave the hair and dust on the floor and definitely they don’t check the refills!! - Have you ever been to a hotel that has no restaurant open for dinner? If not you can try Washington DC Mandarin Oriental! As it’s located in the area no walking distance to any local restaurant not having a restaurant open at night is interesting and again go back to order club sandwich from the room service! - The suite I stayed was average and there was no Nespresso machine in it which these days are everywhere. - Pool, I will not sating thing just check the picture I post!! Just disgusting! With all the disappointment I experienced I have to say the building is nice and some of the staff are amazing and so helpful, I wish I had a better experience so I could

We had a great 4 night stay at the Mandarin Oriental DC last weekend with an almost 3 year old and almost 5 year old. This is a great hotel for kids, and an awesome location for a family vacation and still very luxe. We were very happy with feel of the hotel and overall experience. Prior to the trip, we were a little concerned about food options nearby, but the wharf area is an easy walk with lots of variety, you’re very close to the Mall, and the hotel options were good and prompt! We had a room right by the elevator which is always worrisome to me from a noise perspective, but we didn’t hear a peep the entire time - and there were events/weddings on both Friday and Saturday nights. Check-in was smooth, the staff was efficient, friendly, explained the amenities and MO Fans benefits, but didn’t get overly detailed which was nice as it was getting late. They gave the kids DC coloring books, colored pencils and stuffed pandas at check in which they loved! The room was lovely, the beds were SO comfortable and we had plenty of space for the 4 of us and to eat breakfast in the room. The bathroom was very nicely done, the only complaint on the “hard product” was the lack of water pressure in the shower. I’ve seen this mentioned elsewhere, so it wasn’t surprising, but it is really lacking! Absolutely loved the Dyptique bath products, and the fact that the liquids were in larger bottles for sustainability. The room service was prompt and very well done, room service is sometimes so slow, but they did an excellent job. Everyone we came across was friendly and helpful, even with a toddler meltdown after family pictures. On the service side, the only complaint was that the outer doors are not automatic and there were frequently 2-3 bellmen outside and they were like 50/50 on helping with doors for us and for others (luggage, strollers, etc) but they were always friendly and welcoming. We used the house car one evening, and the driver was wonderful. Nice pool, spa looked nice, but we didn’t use. Overall an awesome location for us and a very nice hotel with great service. We will eagerly stay here again!

Dear JStravino, Thank you very much for picking the Mandarin Oriental for your visit to Washington, D.C. We have focused on making families feel well-served and at home and I am happy to hear that your little ones are now fans! Next time you visit, please ask about our Panda Club--our new children's club with supervised nannies and plenty of fun activities. They will enjoy themselves while you are able to visit the Spa or get out and see some of the sights that may not be as exciting for 3- or 5-year olds. Thank you also for giving us the opportunity to improve some of our guest services, as well. Please come back and visit us again soon! Be sure to bring the kids. Kind regards, Dave Walsh Director of Sales and Marketing
