Nice rooms but a little past its prime

This was a return to the Mayflower for me but it had been a while since my last visit. It is still a grand old hotel but the food service has declined significantly. Not only was it expensive but the quality was poor. Having said that, the hotel is well located for sightseeing and the rooms are comfortable.

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.

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.

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.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

Family reunion

The Mayflower is an old hotel in an extraordinary location, for business or leisure. Service was good even though not great, however room cleanliness was remarkable. Would recommend.

Amazing Value

Others attending the same conference booked though the hotel at a special conference rate - which was significantly higher than we paid through Orbitz. The service was excellent. Check in and check out was flawless and took less than a minute.
