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 traditional-style guest rooms and palacial suites are done in soothing yellows, greens, tans, and blues, and are in their own way a destination in themselves.

Small but comfortable room, excellent catering and service.

I stayed here for a professional event and did not pay for the room myself (it was a block of rooms paid for by the organization). As many have, I found my room to be very small, but since I was not in it much (and was by myself), this was not that important. Service was excellent and detailed, and the catered meals for the conference were the best hotel catered food I have ever had. Location is great too.
