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 were here for a gala, and luckily scored a great corner room. The room was huge! Despite being a DC native, I was still really happy with the location. Lots to do especially on the restaurant and bar front. Staff were great at check-in.

Honestly one of the nicest business overnights I can remember in quite some time. Would absolutely stay here again if the price was right. Read less

Lovely stay in this lovely hotel. Polite friendly staff, very clean, and comfortable beds. Excellent location and reasonably close to many attractions. The Edgar restaurant is the best and we would dine there even if for any reason we stayed in another hotel.
