I like the decor of this hotel. From the lobby to the bathrooms to the beds and sittings areas and window treatments. I stayed in a doubles room that was newly renovated. I only stayed one night for business and it was comfortable. Overall, I have no complains. I got free wifi and free breakfast at a reasonable rate. Breakfast...

I stayed here for 5 nights in late December 2014, and it was a great stay. If you are looking for a hotel that is right in DC and you want that historical feel, this hotel is exactly what you are looking for. The theming is very exquisite with fancy chandeliers, flooring, and overall design in the lobby. Even the...

I was given one of the new renovated rooms. Astounding. No desk in the room. So it is impossible to work (unless you work from the bed). Plus, there is no place to plug things in unless you want them laying around the floor. Can't figure it out. The renovation was, I am guessing, suppose to update the hotel/ So...

The last time I stayed here I thought the hotel was great; full of history and elegant however, I was disappointed because the furnishings were tired and in need of updating. Well not anymore! This time I stayed in a renovated room and found everything in excellent condition. Exactly what I would expect from a hotel of this stature. Combined...

The lobby is spectacular, the rooms are a DISASTER! I have attached a photo of the "updated room" which we had on the concierge level. There is not a single drawer to be found in the room. There is not even a place to set anything down. There is no desk. There is a tiny table that holds the TV...

Last March, a friend and I checked into the Mayflower Renaissance to rest and prepare for the DC Rock 'n' Roll. It was the best decision amongst the many aspects of preparation for enjoying this marathon, for those coming from out-of-state. Here is why: The hotel is large and clearly accustomed to handling travelers coming in with active agendas. I...

After you enter into an elegant lobby and check in effortlessly, you arrive in a room that is fairly dark and stark. The hotel is undergoing renovations, but that shouldn't mare the ambience of the room. While the room was large for a single King bed with ample closet space, there was no radio or clock to be found. Staff...

I really enjoyed my stay that the Mayflower. The breakfast is good and the rooms are nice. They are in the middle of a remodel, but I hardly noticed. It was pretty quiet, even though we were staying next to a wedding party. The location is great, there is easy metro access and you can walk to a lot of...

Check in took longer than expected, only because I had them stitch together my business stay with my pleasure stay and it supposedly takes awhile to make sure you can stay in the same room throughout the stay. The doorman are fantastic and the nicest I've ever encountered at any upscale hotel, very helpful as well. The room was kind...
