The Manadrin Oriental continues to be the best in DC. It is such a cut above most of the other hotels and is very close to Independence avenue and Constitution Ave and about 2 miles from the Kennedy Center.

Three of our family raced the Navy / Air-force half marithon and Navy 5 mile race and stayed the night before the race at the Mandarin Oriental. The location was great, a short walk from the Washington Monument (race start). Restaurant had excellent food. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room had a view of the Washington Monument.
