- Renaissance Mayflower HotelOct 28, 2013
Did you know Washington slept here? OK, not really. But Eliot Spitzer did! George Washington was just his pseudonym.
Seriously, the Mayflower has been the site of presidential inaugural balls since the 1920s – marble, mirrors and chandeliers put on a dazzling display of luster and shine.
Some rooms are bigger than others, so ask about that when you call. Higher floors give you a better view of the city, and if you get a suite, you can see it from your private terrace!
The restaurant, Café Promenade, is closed for renovations, so meals are being served in the Lounge, an open seating area that allows you to see who’s coming and going. Morton's Steakhouse is a stone's throw away, and Obelisk is five blocks or one Metro stop away. It's pretty highly rated, but I got a really gristly piece of veal when I went, and the waiter didn't offer any solutions, so I didn't go back.

Very well situated hotel, just a bit north of the White House. The lobby is a bit overwhelming, as it is very high and extends seemingly endless. Rooms where large, with good quality beds/mattresses, a nice bathroom. The breakfast was good with a lot of choice, although you should know that you can ask for what is not displayed. Service is good, but not exceptional. The hotel does lack a bit in atmosphere.

While it's a regal hotel, with rooms that offer posh bedding and marble bathrooms, the Mayflower is most renowned for its role in pop culture. J Edgar Hoover dined here daily for 20 years, and NY governor Eliot Spitzer trysted here with a hooker (derailing his career).

I really wanted to like this place. Beautiful and historic lobby. But check in and check out were a disaster and I found the staff apathetic at best. Rooms are large but this hotel is long over due for renovations - rooms are outdated and dumpy. I was the guest of a conference and they had booked me a higher end room. Don't know what they paid but you can do better in DC.
Bottom line great place to have breakfast and grab a drink. Horrible place to stay.

It has all the embellishments of a luxury hotel and a history to go with it but, for me at least, it lacks a unique touch that would separate it from its luxury cousin competitors. My dining experience at the Mayflower has been very ordinary - food that is acceptable and service that is erratic.
