Fodor's Review

With its magnificent block-long lobby filled with antique crystal chandeliers, layers of gold trim, and gilded columns, there's little wonder that this luxurious landmark has hosted presidential balls since its opening in 1925, as well as historic news conferences and even, for a short time, the Chinese Embassy. If you are not a visiting dignitary, however, being just steps from the Metro and within walking distance to numerous restaurants, shops, and tourist sites makes the Mayflower a special place for everyone. The newly renovated guest rooms and palatial suites are done in shades of gray with bright splashes of color, and are in their own way a destination in themselves.
