Great place - very classy

The only two complaints I have were that went we left, the hotel charged us for items taken in the mini bar that were not taken. We moved them so we could put our own drinks in there. Also, the water stopped for 6 hours during the night. Other than that, the staff was friends, the room was beautiful and clean. The location was great, a few minutes from dupont circle. We also booked at a very reasonable price.

Best friends getaway

Hotel location is very accessible to everything. Rooms were very clean. Staff was accommodating, helpful and friendly. Concierge are knowledgeable about everything in the area. Only problem was that because it is a business area, all the stores are not opened on the weekends.

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.

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.

The Mayflower in DC

Fantastic experience from the personalized check-in, through the concierge lounge experience, til I checked out. I would call it a 6 star experience! Incredible value. The lounge breakfast, evening heavy hors d'oevres and the late night desserts kept our restaurant budget in check. The staff could not have been more helpful. Location on the red line and sightseeing trolley pick-up and dopr-off make this one of the best locationis in DC.

Perfect

I went to DC for the Memorial Day Weekend. I have been in a few, the same class hotels in DC before and have to admit that this one is the best so far. The room was very clean and big enough, bathroom absolutely amazing, big, new and really nice. The AC was a bit loud but I saw worse in different hotels. The only thing I didn't like was that on the street where our room's window was located was a club and I could hear the music until 2am. Try to pick a room on higher floor, mine was on second, and I believe that would help with the noise. Besides that everything was perfect. Will definitely come back there!
