The Mayflower Hotel, Autograph Collection

Dupont Circle and Embassy Row, Washington DC

The hotel

Rubbing shoulders with the political bigwigs of Washington DC, The Mayflower is just a few blocks from the city’s most famous address, the White House. It’s a landmark in its own right though, welcoming guests for more than 90 years and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, its supersized and super-opulent marble lobby would befit any visiting statesman. Its dining venue would suit dignitaries too – EDGAR Bar & Kitchen is all edgy masculine styling, high-end drinks and cocktails, and American brasserie favourites with an upscale twist. Luckily, its fitness centre is open 24/7 to work off all the treats and tipples – although, you’re better off getting out and exploring all the landmarks, museums, and galleries within a stroll of your doorstep, from Smithsonian museums to world-class shopping magnets, or hopping on the subway just around the corner.Rubbing shoulders with the political bigwigs of Washington DC, The Mayflower is just a few blocks from the city’s most famous address, the White House.

We stayed on the Marriott vacation club floor and had a very nice stay. A very historic and beautiful hotel. Room was a nice size and very clean. Our floor had a Starbucks coffee machine at the end of the hallway and we had access to the lounge for breakfast as well. The hotel is less than a mile from the White House and Washington Monument.

A bit further walk to the museums but in a nice day it’s. Great walk. We really enjoyed our stay. The restaurant was excellent (but expensive) and exceeded expectations both in food and service.

Overall, this is a nice hotel and a good stay. Great location for business travel and also good for sightseeing (although not the best for a trip focused on the Mall). Like some of the other historic hotels in the city, aspects of the rooms feel a little dated, although they are clean and high quality.

Beautiful hotel with a great history. Room furnishings are up to date and if you are a Marriott Bonvoy member, you might get access to their guest lounge which offers a free great breakfast. Housekeeping is great

Great room for a night away from the kids. Patriots were in town and hotel was filled with like minded fans. Great room. Great service. Walking distance from great food and activities. Also got to see a magic comedy show in the hotel. Didn’t know that was a thing! Would definitely recommend and will revisit.

A beautiful smile will be waiting for you when you arrive to the front desk. The professionals of the hotel are exceptional and friendly. There you will find a good room with an excellent bed and pillows. However, the hotel may improve the air conditioning matching, because it is too noise and you cannot sleep with it and the shower. Both are not in line with the tradition of Mayflower and with the professionals that work there. Read less
