Over the years I have stayed on multiple occasions at this very well located hotel with its highly professional staff. The first words on the Marriott / Renaissance site describing it are "Our historic hotel in Washington, DC is a proud member of Historic Hotels of America". How profoundly disappointing it was to see how in 2014 Renaissance has brought...

I stayed at the Mayflower Renaissance for a two-day meeting. Even before we arrived, we were warned not to arrive too late, as the hotel tends to give away reserved rooms, even when guaranteed with a credit card. Luckily this did not happen, despite my flight being delayed. First impressions were good, the promenade along the ground floor is pretty...

I stayed at the Mayflower for the final days of this year's vacation, and I am very satisfied. The hotel has a good location, a helpful and professional staff, and my room has been clean and tidy. Would recommend this to all my friends.

I did not stay at the hotel but attended a two day conference. The food, for a group of 150+ people, was excellent, really excellent. The staff was fantastic. The two gentlemen who worked the breakfast for the conference were wonderful. Based on this experience I will choose this hotel when I have the opportunity.

This hotel is in a great location for taking in many tourist attractions. Located about 1/2 block from the Metro so it makes it easy to travel in Washington DC. If you are flying into the Reagan National Airport you can simply hop on the Metro and arrive minutes later without taking a taxi or picking up a rental car....

One thing that really gets me is when you stay at a costly hotel and they want to charge you for the internet. Really at over 400 bucks a night you have to charge for the internet? Even a Super 8 gives you free internet. The other thing that bugs me is when they have this little flyer trying to...

We stayed at the Mayflower Renaissance for a week while traveling around D.C. It's a beautiful historic hotel. The rooms are very nice and rather large for a big city hotel. The bed was comfortable, the in room amenities were great, and the air conditioning worked well. There is a very different mix of people staying at the hotel, military,...

I was booked for a king size bed, but on arrival was told I was being put in a queen size room due to overbooking. Went up to the room, and it's clear that this "queen" bed is nothing more than a full size mattress! In looking through the other reviews for this hotel, overbooking seems to be a persistent...

Here for a work conference, staying for the weekend. For work, upgraded to suite. Nice and super spacious. Comfortable bedding and linens. For personal, regular room which was super comfortable. Good AC, excellent bed, Aveda products, excellent and friendly staff. I'd stay here again. This place has great character and has an excellent location.

We stayed at this hotel in August 2014 whilst traveling the USA, the first impression as you enter the lobby definitely has the WOW factor, huge chandeliers hanging over marble floors which is all very luxurious. Our room was fairly small but was expected from an hotel of this age. The location was great for what we wanted from it,...
