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.

Business Trip to Dc

Nice hotel, great location. Close to Metro station and a short walk to Dupont and Logan Circle neighborhoods. Friendly staff. Only downside - no wireless in the rooms and a very short cord.

Very nice hotel

The hotel was very nice and the brunch was delicious. The metro stop was just at the end of the block which was very convenient for getting back and forth to my meetings and sight-seeing. The beds were clean and comfortable, although the chairs in the room were a little stained and worn out. The water pressure was also a little lacking (for the shower and toilet), but that may have been because we were on the top floor. Overall, I would stay there again.

Good Hotel

I didnt get the best room so the room could have been a bit better but beyond that it has a great location (This hotel is minutes away from the whitehouse, capital building, national mall, dupont circle...), immaculate and friendly service. Best compliment that I can give is that I would stay again.

great stay in great location

We checked in very late and didn't get the bed arrangement that we had requested. The following day they upgraded us (at no extra charge) to a very spacious executive double. Hotel is conveniently located 1 block from Metro. Concierge made some wonderful restaurant recommendation. Staff was very friendly; nice breakfast buffet; charming older hotel.

Zenga - Asian/Latin fusion. A bit pricey but the food was delicious. Nick and Joe's on the waterfront in Georgetown. Delicious seafood, great people watching.

A great old hotel

The concierge, [...], is the most helpful concierge I've ever met. She took care of our every need with a smile, remembered our names, and was just generally delightful. My only complaints, are mino: there is no room delivery of the newspapers on Saturday and Sunday; the lobby cocktail waitress was alone and overwhelmed on a rainy Saturday, so service was very slow, and the icebuckets in the room were without liners and the water never emptied. But it was a very large, very quiet and clean room, and in all, the experience was delightful.

Go to the Capitol Grill for old fashioned ambience and great steak, or try The Blue Duck for unusual high-end fare.

Great place

The concierge was fantastic, very knowledgable, friendly and persuaded me to try the subway instead of a taxi and he was right! The first night I was next to the ice machine which was too loud for this light-sleeper. They moved me the next day without hassle.
