While signs of age were there, my main point is on the extra cost for 'monument view.' I paid it, was put on the 11th flr and promptly questioned it. I could only see the GW monument's tip. Though it was politely defended as a monument view, moving to the 15th flr allowed far more to be seen, including many bldgs on the mall & beyond.

Walking distance to the to the National Mall

They are doing construction and it runs from 7 am to 12 pm. No one mentioned it when I called so it was a shock. They tried to accomodate by giving us a 'premimum' room, a breakfast and free wifi but it was still very noisy and not what I had expected.

This hotel is in a great location - walking distance to the National Mall and many Smithsonian museums. They are doing construction and it is very noisy right now. The staff was completely unhelpful in recommending restaurants, couldn't give us driving directions and the conseigere was never available. I probably wouldn't stay their again. Wifi was $11 per day which is a ridiculus price.

The bar and grill

Yes, no microwaves in rooms, late maid service not till after 5 pm some days. No free breakfast with rooms. No shuttle service to and from airport. No shuttle service to other area in DC.

Just remodeled but everything was not finished and placed in room with minor repairs still needing to be completed. Upon arrival we had book adjoining rooms and spoke with the staff on two occasions to confirm adjoining rooms, but adjoining rooms were not reserve for us. Staff took over an hour to correct this error. The hotel was not people friendly.

Location, staff, Bistro staff. Housekeeping staff during first few days was very good.

somewhat inconsistent service: cabinet door on fridge unit was half off when we got there, fell completely off while there. I'm surprised housekeeping staff hadn't reported problem to maintenance or maybe they did & nothing was done. We reported ourselves

Would definitely stay there again

Room cleanliness was of top quality. Service was excellent. My son and I ate at the restaurant and the service was wonderful, the food excellent. Food prices for being located in D.C. was quite reasonable and great value. Amenities were of top quality. The room wasn't particularly inexpensive. However I have stayed at more and less expensive hotels in the area, and by far the Mandarin Oriental would be my first choice hands down. Will look for this smaller chain of hotels elsewhere in my and my families future travels. Location was just a bit out of the way for a family stay to see all the attractions but well worth the comfort. I highly recommend this hotel!

Room needed some updating, laminate was peeling off of the furniture. But for the price it was a good deal. The elevators did not always work properly.

Staff, common spaces, and location were great.

This hotel, in an excellent location is a bit "long in the tooth" as the Brits would say.. but aside from the 1/4 mile walk to my room, the staff was great and they had a nice hospitality bar in the main lobby.

Getting your bag up a flight of stairs w/o a ramp is something that they should work on .. esp when no valet staff is around to help. About as convenient as the NY Subway.

Close proximity to White House - couldn't get closer. Staff were all very pleasant. Beds were very, very comfortable. Overall, very pleased with our stay!

Just a suggestion: provide shower caps.

Interesting and modern use of vintage space. Room was fitted with modular-type furniture, closets and partitions. Mirrors were inside the closet rather than on the wall. Closet was well lit when open and there was plenty of room lighting. Bed was very, very comfortable.

Location was excellent right next to White House. Staff were helpful and the hotel is lively and different.

Not really the lights are a bit fiddly to use and there is no bath but neither point affected our enjoyment.

Great base to see the city and Hamilton's sushi happy hour over the road is well worth a try.

The suite was spacious and very comfortable, the breakfast was excellent, the staff in all departments was wonderful.

I cannot think of anything negative at all about this hotel.

This hotel is a gem inside the capitol hill neighborhood. With a great indoor pool and hot tub, big breakfast buffets, friendly service, and spacious suites, it is ideal for a family trip or extended stay for business travelers.

Everyone was super friendly and went out of their way to genuinely provide a good service and experience. Some people (doorman, waitress) have been working there for over 20 years, that says something about an institution. Great location, walking distance to all attractions or a short taxi ride. Very clean, nice size rooms. Free wi-fi was had the best speed I had for a long time at hotels. Most free wi-fi is just painfully slow. You can use up to 6 devices! We used 5 simultaneously and the speed was still great. Breakfast was included in our Kayak deal even though it was not a usual deal for the hotel they accepted it when I showed them my Kayak reservation print out. Breakfast choices are great and it comes with a kids menu. Huge portions to keep you full till afternoon. You can seriously skip lunch. The pool is open from 6 am till 11 pm. Very nice sized, there's also a sauna. It was never crowded and kids would not get out of the pool for hours! We had a good deal and would definitely come back and recommend it to others.

Starbucks at the hotel closes at 6pm. This was too early. This is probably not within the hotel's control as Starbucks is an outside vendor. The hotel can have a bigger shop that sells more stuff.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
