Willard Intercontinental or Mayflower Hotel in Washington D.C.?

Jump to last reply

My adult son and I are going to D.C. for four nights at the end of October. I am trying to decide between the Willard or the Mayflower. It has been almost 50 years since I've been to Washington, D.C. and this will be my son's first visit. We want to do all the usual stuff -- museums, monuments, war memorials, etc.

I am leaning towards the Willard because the location looks more convenient and the reviews on Tripadvisor are consistently good. I have a good friend who thinks we should choose the Mayflower. She has stayed at The Mayflower and likes it. The Mayflower is cheaper. For some reason, I am drawn to the Willard.

So, which would you choose and why? Thanks!
