I decided to write this 2 days after I checked out of this hotel, to allow for a more objective review; pushing my anger aside for a little while. My husband and I have stayed in this hotel 3 times now. My 1st experience was quite awful, the 2nd time around was much better...but this 3rd (and should i say,...

This is a must-stay-at hotel if you are in the Washington DC area. The history of the hotel (reported to be haunted if you believe in that sort of thing) is long and packed with Washington Elite stories of presidents, senators and the like. Because it's a historical hotel, our room layout was a bit odd - but that is...

I picked this hotel because it is historic and in a good location. I found our room to be very comfortable. It had everything I look for in a quality room- an excellent bathroom, a shower with good water pressure, a comfortable bed, good AC and great lighting. Our only minuses were that our clock radio did not work well...

The Mayflower has a great amount of charm given its history, fantastic lobby, and decor throughout the hotel. Unfortunately, there is limited updating the hotel rooms. For example, much of the furniture is chipped, damaged, the bed was uncomfortable, the desk chair seemed to have bad cushioning, and the carpet was dirty. The bonus to this hotel is that it...

Great location, super neighborhood. Convenient walk to everywhere, and awesome little neighborhood bars and restaurants that are nearby. A block from metro subway( very easy, clean and safe to use). Hotel is clean and well cared for. Restaurant service in Edgar is perfect. Staff helpful and courteous. I love it here, and am glad it was recommended to me.

We spent 4 nights recently in the Mayflower Renaissance, on the 8th floor in a corner room. Very happy with the room, nice quiet location. We returned one evening to find the room hadn't been cleaned, but this was sorted fairly quickly with a phone call to the concierge. The hotel is very near the metro station on the red...

I've stayed here 4 times and find the location and facilities to be lovely. Food is surprisingly good for a hotel (we get catering when we conference here) and the historic touch is very interesting.

This grand old hotel shows a bit of wear and is slated for renovation beginning October 2014. However, the service is impeccable. From the outstanding service at the check in desk to the attention to detail of room service,this is truly a grand dame of hotels. I noticed a well groomed supervisor with a checklist inspecting each room after it...
