I stayed at the Mandarin for two nights while attending a business conference. The location at the end of the mall with easy waking access to many monuments would be great for tourists. My room was large by DC standards and luxuriously appointed. Hotel staff were warm and helpful. Highly recommend!

Esperanza, our room attendant, did a lovely job of making sure we were well cared for.

We have never stayed at a Mandarin Oriental, but we will definitely stay at this hotel again. The staff was amazing. They attended promptly to every request. The rooms are comfortable, quiet, and clean, and the showers are the best. Seriously missing that shower now that I am back home! I highly recommend this hotel.
