The Mayflower in DC

Fantastic experience from the personalized check-in, through the concierge lounge experience, til I checked out. I would call it a 6 star experience! Incredible value. The lounge breakfast, evening heavy hors d'oevres and the late night desserts kept our restaurant budget in check. The staff could not have been more helpful. Location on the red line and sightseeing trolley pick-up and dopr-off make this one of the best locationis in DC.

Thanksgiving week getaway

Received wonderful deal on hotel and airfare via This web site. Saw old friends for Thanksgiving. Used other days to tour DC museums. Arrived several hours before check in time on Tuesday before the holiday. It was rainy and cold in DC and I was hoping that my wife and I could get into the room early. Hotel desk staff seemed to understand that and assigned us a wonderful room. Room was clean with plenty of towels. Bed was very comfortable and there were lots of packets of free in room coffee. It was my second time staying at this hotel and stay was even better this time. Hotel is half a block from a Metro stop so traveling locally to museums was easy. Can't wait to stay here again in the future.

great location in a beautiful historic hotel

We just stayed 5 nights at the Mayflower and had a wonderful time. The building is beautiful and rooms very clean and roomy. On arrival we were upgraded to a suite for no charge. It is a large hotel, so there was a lot of walking to and from the room, but I am sure we could have requested a location closer to the elevators. Location is great, near two metro stations so very easy to get around.

Just ok

The room was small with no view except of an alley, pipes and buildings that blocked any view of the city. The air conditioner was loud which was disturbing when it turned off and turned on. Saving grace was that I had things to do and not in my room much, except to sleep.

Labor Day weekend getaway

The hotel was nice and clean, bar staff was kind. The only complaint I have was that my request for a double bed couldn't be accommodated and I was traveling with my son, so he had to sleep on a roll away.
