This is a fantastic hotel located just blocks from the White House. It is a historic hotel with the feeling of grandeur. The neighborhood surrounding the hotel is very safe. The staff is very helpful and accommodating.

I was here for the AAP legislative conference. I couldn't be happier about the hotel - it's beautiful, in a great location, and was extremely organized. The staff was receptive to all of our needs. I am very impressed. A friend of mine dropped a necklace down the drain, and they helped her retrieve it. It has a lot of...

I love love love this hotel. It definitely my hotel in the DMV (DC, MD, VA) region. The staff is exceptional, the décor is amazing, and the location is great. Cons: The rooms are a little small but not enough to make me want to stay anywhere else.

My husband stayed overnight after going the March for Science. We enjoyed our stay at the Mayflower. The tea / coffee in the morning was welcome, as were the macaroons in the late afternoon. A nice touch. The corridors are fabulous (cannot believe I am writing this), and the guest room was lovely. The bathroom has a large tub, but...

Lovely hotel, great amenities in a very convenient location. We were able to walk to DuPont Circle area and all the monuments quite easily. Staying on the concierge level is worth it as food is expensive in DC, and meals and snacks are good quality.

Staying as a guest with a friend that is a Marriott Vacation Club owner gave us access to the 8th floor lounge as well as a very large room on the 7th floor. The room had two double beds along with a seating area and large bathroom. Quite large as hotel rooms go. The best part was the 8th floor...

I had not been in D.C. For 21 years and staying at the Mayflower made me love D.C. More than I loved it. I studied there in the 80's College. Great DownTown choice. Close to a Metro Station. Safe at night, lots of choices to eat and shop. Great Staff.

Second best address in Washington said one president. I agree. Great location, great service and a wonderful refurbishment that means this hotel is a fully modern and up to date hotel yet hasn't forgotten its history at all; a real art. We will return.
