Beautiful & comfortable

This hotel could not have been more accomodating. I have a son with special needs so I had a lot of special requests. They accommodated all my requests and made sure we were comfortable. The room was larger than most hotels & it was near public transportation. I highly recommend this hotel!

Excellent location and nice rooms

Excellent location next to restaurants, shops and city center. Rooms are spacey and clean. Hotel restaurant and breakfast choices are pretty average. No expresso!

Great D.C. Trip

The Mayflower was awesome. It was very close to the Metro. I would recommend getting a Smartrip pass for the Metro as it was extremely convenient on the Metro and busses. The staff at the hotel was very welcoming and the room was awesome! We will definitely stay here again.

Take the Nighttime Monument and daytime trolley tours. They were great and the drivers know so much about D.C. history!

Noise from the Subway

Everything was excellent, except that in the rooms facing Connecticut Avenue one can hear noises when the subway is running underneath.

It's not the same anymore

We have been staying in this hotel since 2013 and we were very disappointed that the hotel has let it's stands drop so much. They no longer provide complimentary water bottles and on requesting one at 11:00 (cvs was closed) we were told 'we don't give water anymore, you can buy one from the hotel shop' we were then forced to buy a bottle from the hotel shop for $5+. The room cleaning was poor and shampoo and soaps were rationed (one small shampoo bottle between two adults). The bedding was poor and stained. On complaining to the front desk we didn't even get a sorry and were told we can change your room if you're not happy. Extremely disappointed as we loved staying here and stayed for over 30 days over the past 2 years.
