Time for some "re-decorating"

The hotel is beautiful and the staff are spectacular! Location is great. The room was not clean, we changed rooms which was not a big deal, those things happen. However, I think the hotel needs to do a "freshing up" chairs in rooms, lobby chairs are worn threads in spots.............they need a walk through "punch list" time to invest some money in the property.

great hotel for all

Great hotel convenient for White House and National Mall Smithsonian Museums etc. Metro yards from Hotel at end of block. Wifi hit and miss in Public areas. Breakfast dining excellent. Some redevelopment going on but not interfering too much with visit. Could do with more seating in foyer. Good gift shop tucked away at back of Escalators.

Historic hotel misses the target

The furniture looked as if it were purchased at an auction. The rug was dirty. The carpeting was dirty. There was no info in the room about the hotel or closeby churches, etc. No fan in the bathroom made for very messy makeup. The air conditioner leaked and the carpeting around it was wet, not damp, wet. Sadly, my first visit 40 years ago and this one were very different.

Use the Metro, get a Smart Card, saved us a lot of money. Park in the garage around the corner...125 for a week. Find spots around hotel to eat.

Wonderful time at The Mayflower

Upon check in we were given a room with two doubles. It seemed a bit small so I made an inquiry with the front desk and asked if a double queen were available. They very graciously changed our room to a much larger room with 1 queen and a roll away bed for my 12 year old son that was perfect. We put a bottle of wine in our frig during our stay, upon checkout we were charged a 100.00 fee for use of frig. when I questioned the charge they explained that the frig was weighed daily. When I told them about the wine they again graciously removed the charge. The staff really goes out of their way for all their guests. No need for a vehicle as the Metro is steps away but many attractions are within walking distance. I would highly recommend and would definitely stay at The Mayflower again. I also got a GREAT nightly rate.

Mayflower losing ground in D.C.

This once grand hotel is now just another among the many in D.C. My chief problem with this stay was that the room temp was impossible to set. This resulted in a night of alternatly turning the A/C on, then getting up to turn it off.

Affordable elegance

Our group of 5, ages 8 - 80 all enjoyed this hotel. The Cafe has a terrific brunch, the rooms are very spacious and the bathrooms are huge. Both our rooms had little foyers which added to the elegance. Typical urban window views however - rooftops, parking garages, office buildings, etc. Very convenient to the Metro.

For a Hotel with such an obulate/ornate interior, it is well worth the price. The staff is very friendly and eager to help in any way possible.
