Great Business Trip!

After being on an airplane for 5 hours and arriving to DC around 3:30 a.m. instead of 9 p.m., I was one tired traveler when I checked into the hotel. The staff was very nice in greeting me at that early hour. My luggage was also lost and the staff kept me up-to-date on the status of my luggage. Everyone was very friendly, and my room was clean and comfortable. The restaurant staff was quick and courteous and the food was delicious! Would absolutely book this hotel again for a future stay.

First floor lobby bar was terrible --all 4 nights. Staff was SLOW, very confused about orders., unfriendly. Mezz Lounge was excellent, staff friendly and responsive. Friends from other hotel impressed. Front Desk, Bell folks and Concierge were fantastic.

Washington's second best address

Harry Truman labled the Mayflower "Washington's second best address," and it is truly elegant. My room was small but plush. For the very reasonable price I paid, the room was excellent. The lobby is old school elegant rather than flashy, and there is ample fine shopping nearby. The hotel is timeless; I am sure it looks pretty much as it did 50 or 60 years ago.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel has a fitness Center but if you belong to a gym called NY Sports Club, Boston Sports Club or Philadelphia Sports Club, two blocks away there is a Washington Sports Club (WSC) you can use with your passport membership. Brooks Brothers, Godiva Chocolate and other fine stores are nearby.

Great location in DC

This is a great hotel and location in DC. The staff is great and easy access to Metro. The elevators were never crowded and you never had to wait on one. The only bad thing we experienced was a toilet overflow but the staff came immediately and fixed it - no more problems.

Excellent Hotel but dated

The Mayflower was an excellent hotel. The staff was attentive and very friendly. The room was clean and in excellent condition but a bit dated. I will warn you that the bar is incredibly overpriced. I would definitely stay here again for my next trip to Washington.

High expectation

I thought it is this hotel was part of history so it must be great since U.S. presidents stayed here. (It by walking is 11 minutes away from the White House) The shower easily clogged and it does not have the best view. However, the staff are polite so it saved by rating low. Location is good because you are near many stores, restaurants, and subway station.

Very Good Stay

The hotel has a very good location just 5 minutes away from the White House as well as from Dupont Circle and the Downtown area. The personnel was very friendly and fast, the room clean. A metro station is directly around the corner. Highly recommended hotel for a central stay in Washington D.C..

I love historical hotels and this was a great one. The location is great and convienent to many places. We took the Old Town Trolley, highly recommend, and it picked up at our door. Lots of eating, shopping and sightseeing places within easy walking distance. All of staff was friendly and helpful.
