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..

Great location, great hotel

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.

False Advertising

The room was clean and hotel lobby grand. HOWEVER, when I booked this hotel, Orbitz advertised the Renassaince Hotel chain had a deal with Amercian Express providing the guest a 20% discount at checkin if they used their AMEX card. WRONG! Discount not given if you book through Orbitz. Please remove from website.

Great location, hotel services not great

I was there for a convention. The location was great because it was within walking distance to the convention center and the national mall. The hotel room was adequate, but it did not have coffeemaker services in the room and the shampoo and conditioner was not replaced while I was there. Additionally, the newspaper was only delivered one day. Finally, there was no wifi services unless there was a fee. The aura of the hotel was great and I liked the history. Oh, and the water they supplied as you entered the building was great. .filled with fruit.

The location was a short walk to the White House and the National Mall, and it was not an expensive taxi ride or metro ride to the Georgetown eateries.

Nice place

The hotel was nice. It was over booked when we checked in. Traveled with three kids and my wife. They gave us two rooms with king beds to accommodate us would of been nicer if they gave us a two bedroom suit that was empty just down the hall
