From the moment we stepped out of our rental car the hotel staff was friendly, courteous, and helpful. We had just come in to DC from two days of flying and driving and right away the hotel staff made us feel right at home. They carried our bags, helped us with transportation in DC by pointing us in the right direction, and even gave us apples on our way out for the day. We had never been to DC and have 2 small children and did all the sight seeing we could pack in for 2 days. The location of the hotel was great. One night the weather was great and we all enjoyed the walk through the city back and forth from the Washington Monument. It is quite the walk, so if you are not up for it we also took a cab and used Lyft in which every place only cost about 10.00 to get a ride to and from the hotel. I also feel compelled to mention that maybe it was the look on our faces when we stepped out of our car after the long traveling experince with 2 small kids, but whatever it was they upgraded our room to a balcony! I think her name was Elena that offered the upgrade, and it was very much appreciated!
Interesting restaurants nearby
Rooms were very clean. Beds were comfortable. Very nice outdoor pool with plenty of lounge chairs, an outdoor bar and poolside table for eating. Parking at the hotel was perfect. Bathroom was slightly small but very clean.
We were upset at lack of complimentary breakfast.
Close to attractions Parking
The hotel staff was great and I liked that they had parking. The room was nice & location was great. Everything about the hotel was great. One of the reasons I liked it was because it was smoke-free however, the room smelt of smoke the last night we stayed and even again in the early morning before we checked out. Not the hotels fault, was just disappointing.
Microwave access would have been very convenient.
Most friendly staff I've ever encountered at a hotel.
Easy access to Metro, White Hose, Mall, etc. IF you are a walker. Very welcoming,professional and responsive staff. They were happy to change rooms to 2 beds when my son flew in from CA. Great catering staff and food. Clean and comfortable. A little dated and can be very expensive. My on-line rate with tax etc. was a reasonable $180. When I tried to add 1 night, they wanted $479! Needless to say, we went somewhere else.
I liked the location, the staff was very friendly, and the complimentary water. We had issues with our air conditioning which we told the staff about but nothing was fixed and our room was muggy and damp.
Friendly staff, clean and attractive, excellent hotel for the price! Bar closes too early. Minor problems with accessories in room.
The hotel staff were excellent and very helpful with restaurant suggestions and transportation. The room smelled very bad; like a mixture of body odor, Old Spice, and onions. I left the window open all day and it didn't improve.
The location and comfort here is great! Overall very good value!! The room was a little tight. Room had empty box of tissues, could of been a bit cleaner, dust.
The hotel was very nice and extremely close to all the sites (just blocks from the White House). The room, service, and location were far above what I would expect for the price. Would stay here again and will recommend to anyone visiting the DC area.
It was right downtown near the white house and monuments, so we could walk everywhere Everything closes down so it's hard to find a late night restaurant or pharmacy
This is a luxury hotel for an unbelievable price. The hotel is centrally located to about everything you want to see or do. What first caught our attention is the fact that you can look down the street and see the White House just a few short blocks away. Yes, there are a lot of hotels in Washington D.C., but if you are looking for a GREAT hotel at an unequaled price, this is it. This would be our first choice when returning to Washington DC. There was nothing not to like about this hotel.
Friendly helpful staff in downtown DC. The air conditioning in the room wasn't very good. It didn't feel like it dropped below 70F while set to 60F in November.
The room was made up in typical Hilton style with decent bedding/bathroom stuff. This hotels has seen better days. One of the elevators was out of service (seemingly for a long time - a piece of tape covering the outside) the button to the elevator was cracked, and the whole thign was worryingly slowly and creaky. The room itself smelled musty - like it hadn't been aired out in years. Outside the window was the HVAC system which was *loud*. It was a crazy-horrible room. My best guess is that because Kayak booked the room through Priceline Hilton felt it was okay to give me the worst room they could find. I checked out immediately and went to another hotel nearby for the same price, but with a much nicer room and hotel in general.
Excellent location for much of downtown DC. Around Midnight my room filled with old cigarette smoke as someone began smoking in the stairwell. The air quality overall in my particular room was poor, requiring the windows to be opened as much as possible. This of course made it difficult to sleep as the city sounds in DC near The White House are loud and replete with sirens 24/seven. Normally, one might cover one's ears to have silence. However, at this hotel the pillows are the size for small children.
Friendly, attentive staff. Clean rooms and facilities. Location is within walking distance of many places to eat and a short ride from the national mall. Would stay again. Very cold lobby/restaurant/bar area. Thermostat in room kept malfunctioning. The maintenance guy brought us a space heater at one point. Requested shampoo at one point and three different staff people delivered some three separate times. Very friendly, but obviously some lack of communication. Staff was very apologetic about the thermostat and offered us a variety of comps.
Staff very helpfil. Close to DC metro and attraction
Staff amazing and SO CLOSE to Everything! Also, very easy to Metro and DCA.
We were in DC to visit our son at GWH. Clean and efficient. Perfect location to the occasion. The bed could have been positioned 90° to the 8' room width.
We went to DC to celebrate my husband's birthday for a long weekend. We looked for a long time online and a lot of the offering was overpriced for the amenities available. The Club Quarters was a great find!!!! The staff was very helpful throughout our stay. There is an espresso bar on the 2nd floor!! We were a few blocks from all the greatest attractions, walked to every site. Never had to take a cab or the Metro. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and will come back. We found a gem in D.C. and will be recommending it to our family and friends.
The staff was warm and welcoming from the moment I stepped through the door with my 12 year old. I detest the hold hotels put on your credit card and don't release for days and was told I could pay the $50 incidental in cash (which I received back at checkout before the housekeeper had even cleaned the room). The room was indeed small with only 1 bed which would have been a problem if I hadn't been traveling with family. However, it was clean, along with the bathroom. I did whack my elbow against the wall as I was showering as the stall was a bit cramped. We received great instructions on how to make our way to the White House and monuments - - all within walking distance. We finished our running around a bit early so we took advantage of the 2nd floor lounge for about a half hour before heading back to Union Station. There was an industrial coffee/espresso/cappuccino maker, tea bags, newspapers, a big screen tv set to CNN, a charging station, computers etc. The rooms are too small for friends to convene comfortably so the lounge is a nice spot. Convenience: A block away from the Circulator, a block away from the Farragut North and Farragut West station (it is actually on top of the Farragut West station, however, the entrance is closed so it's necessary to walk to the other side a block down). The complimentary bottled water saved us some money and we surely took advantage. The shower was uncomfortably small for a tall lanky person like me. Whacking my elbow against the wall isn't something I expect to happen in a hotel (usually hotel bathrooms are more comfy than my micro bathroom at home in NYC). Also, the room did not have a mini fridge which would have been nice for our leftovers. The hotel is downtown so the area at night is sparse (still feels safe though). You'll need to take a little walk to find some good breakfast if you set out early on a weekend because the nearby places are either never open on the weekends or only open closer to 9 am.
The location for downtown dc couldn't be better, and staff was excellent and very helpful Room was small but for the price value of everything else it didn't matter
The location 24 hr coffee station clean rooms Small room configured & supplied for the single business traveler. One bath towel 4 the family.
food and service was good My husband and i were given an end corner room 302 that was way to small and gave a confined effect. We spent as much time out of the room as possible. Parking was also difficult due to lack of easy access to our vehicle asit was in an underground garrage.
Location, convenience Rooms are dated, small and dark
Staff and free snacks were great. Nothing
Well maintained older hotel convenient to restaurants and tourist attractions. Nice linens and towels. Great cocktail lounge. Friendly and welcoming service. Street noise; will bring earplugs next time.
The ideal location in Dupont Circle Washington D.C. over-shadowed some of the quirks in the room configuration. Very nice bar & restaurant in the lobby. Not much room to hang clothes or unpack clothes. The lighting in the room and bathroom could have been brighter. The TV could have been on an extension arm or situated in the center of the room. The door-less shower stall was a bit messy.
One of the maintenance staff opened the door while I was in my room.
Location, staff, decent facilities, lively bar. Wi-fi was awful (almost non-existent), gym under renovation, but at least they worked something out with the club up the street.
Nice decor and amenities, good restaurant and bar, friendly , responsive staff , great location
The location can not be beat in DC. It's right in the middle of Dupont Circle with bars, restaurants, embassies, the metro and access to many buses. Staff was very very vice. I loved their Aromatherapy toiletries. No breakfast, There's not real refrigerator in the room. Also the room was small and didn't have a separate bathroom. The bathroom was separated by half a glass wall. I did not like this. If a colleague or friend came over, it would be so awkward for them to use the bathroom. Cleanliness was OKAY, def not up to par considering the price of the hotel. For example, the couch pillow had a stain on it.
Location, Cafe DuPont and Bar DuPont Terrible reservation system. I believe they intentionally overbook the hotel and end up turning away guests. WiFi is terrible. No connection during my 5 nights even after daily complaints. Night front desk staff is mediocre.
Stay was wonderful! Great location near Metro and restaurants..would definitely book again in future! Pillows were too soft and room seemed very warm.
Modern and sleek. Staff was fantastic. Location couldn't be better. Heated bathroom floors! No recycling. Hallways were cold.
The hotel staff was very cordial. Very busy and active bar in the hotel. Breakfast from the hotel restaurant was good. The room was clean and very modern. Beds were very comfortable. Access to the closet was limited due to the proximity of the bed to the closet doors - couldn't open the doors enough.
Great location and extremely friendly staff. The gym had minimal equipment and there is no pool.
I had reserved and paid for a room a week before I was scheduled to arrive. When I finally got there at 11:15p after a long day of travel, the front desk clerk informed me that they had NO ROOM available for me. He gave me a "voucher" for a "nearby" hotel, handed me a $20 bill and hailed me a cab. This other hotel was miles away, not nearly as nice or well-located, and had no idea what was going on. I received no follow-up from the Dupont Circle Hotel management or staff to make sure everything was ok, no less a complimentary stay or anything. And the kicker: as of today (4 days after this debacle) the $1000+ charge for my room is STILL on my credit card (i.e., no refund). I will never, ever stay at this hotel again, and neither should you.
Hotel staff were always attentive and helpful.
Comfort of the room Lack of phone service or free wifi.
The actual hotel was clean and updated, the staff was friendly and helpful. Overall the actual stay was great. Nice little happy hour offered at the bar. Valet parked my car for 1 night, and took it upon themselves to charge $50 to my credit card, plus a $17 convenience fee. No lot in the surrounding area exceeded $25 for overnight parking. I should have parked my own car. I feel that the hotel was nervy and rude to charge us double the going rate for parking - without notifying me. I felt taken advantage of, since we were already paying top dollar for a 1 night stay. The hotel was nice, but not that nice. I stay in DC all the time, but I may not return unless this problem is rectified.
We were in a suite and it was spacious and nicely furnished. Most staff were nice. Great having a Starbucks in the lobby. Nice central location. The bathroom was small, especially the corner sink. There was no counter space. Front desk clerks were hit and miss. Some nice, some not. Concierge staff were great. The breakfast was OK, not great.
Excellent service. I ask them if I could make my check in before 3 pm (the official hour) because I was going to arrive at 9 am, and they had my room ready for that hour.
The staff were very friendly and the hotel was beautiful. We'd definitely stay here again!
The hotel is a beautiful place with excellent finishes. Everything was in great condition and high quality. The rooms were small, which in understandable given the location, but this was a double bed room so it seemed even smaller.
Amaizing service with very friendly staff Beds and pillows were amaizing
Location Horribly overpriced
The staff Felt a bit hurried to finish our breakfast.
Location The staff (including management) did not respond adequately to their system being down during check in. Problems like that are expected but management did not issue an apology to all guests waiting in line for 30+ minutes and did not show the urgency to find an alternate way to check in all the guests affected by the hotel's system outage.
I liked the late check out option. The bed was extremely comfortable. The room was very clean. The front desk attempted to charge me for wifi even though my reservation included wifi. They expected me to pay or go out to use the public library in the common areas. After a visit back down to the front desk they provided me with an access code.
The beds are remarkably comfortable. The staff is affable and efficient. My wife left her jewelry in the room. We called once we were home and spoke to Doris. She found the jewelry and called us back right away and will mail the jewelry to us. OVERALL 5 STARS.
In DC near DuPont circle, but quiet on weekend days. Price of room offers decent value. Super expensive parking, $55/day. Not in the heart of the action in DC.
Overall the property was excellent! A foul order in ventilation system.
Everyone was very helpful & attentive!
Good customer service Very expensive hotel. The movies in the rooms are 20$ each. No HBO or any good channels really. Restaurant in the hotel is outrageously expensive (making room service also very expensive). 10$ for bowl of cereal, 25$ for shorts tack of pancakes. Food is really bad too. Like surprisingly very bad. Soggy fries, Bad salads,sandwiches, pizzas
no self-parking. valet parking only. when I tried to do valet parking, they didn't allow me to do it.
Very Clean Comfortable beds
60 dollars for valet parking no other option
Valet parking was extremely slow and expensive
Good deal for the price Expensive car valet and shower heads were in need of repair. Water temp fluctuated too much. I spent more time adjusting it rather than showering
Beautiful lobby, great DC location, helpful staff, lovely room. A value I don't understand but was happy to have. Lovely room. It was great! As a group we did not enjoy breakfast in the restaurant.
The staff was very freindly and attentive and the hotel itself is beautiful. The fitness center was impressive. There was no wi-fi availbale in our room and we had to pay 13$ per day for internet acess.
We absolutely loved our stay at The Mayflower. My husband and I were there to renew our vows on our anniversary and the staff were extremely welcoming, making sure our room was ready several hours before normal heck-in hours so that we could get dressed and off to the ceremony in time. I can't think of a single thing that was less than exemplary- the loveliest hotel in DC!
incredible suite for the price... they tried to put me in a regular dbl room when I checked in! Reminded them I had booked and been confirmed by their reservations mgr for a suite with 2 dbl beds.
I came in at 4 and there was no water or mini-bar in the room. They told me that if I wanted a Diet Coke I would need to wait until room service was open at 5. In the morning, they didn't fill the breakfast order -- said they didn't get it. This for $400 a night? Hardly 4 star service.
The room was lovely, and the staff was courteous, helpful and efficient.
Very comfortable and pleasant stay . Excellent service and perfect location.
Everything about the hotel was fantastic, the staff were very courteous and helpful and all made a point of knowing my 7 year old son's name. Not applicable.
Outstanding service and courtesy were the hallmarks of our stay here. The room was immaculate and well cared for. The location was perfect for everything we wanted to see and do. The conceirge was outstanding in his helpfulness. No coffee maker in the room, yikes, missed that first, fast heart- starting cup.
Location was great. Wonderful room. Two good restaurants with great staff but a bit expensive. All staff members were great! Fitness room was available even in this boutique setting. My son lost his stuffed animal while we were there and they left a new one in the room for him - it made him very happy (they later found his but let him keep the new one, "Freddie". Restaurant was too expensive, especially for breakfast. Fitness room was a bit small.
friendly staff,premium location.
It was so busy/ room service was 30 minutes later
My room was very nice and well maintained by the housekeeping staff. The front of house staff were also very cordial. Charging $12.95 per day for internet service is unreasonable, based on the room rate we were charged.
good facilities;helpful staff had to request tea/coffee maker and a refrigerator coffee/milk supplies not replenished daily
It was a clean hotel with nice people. misleading when looking online, it looks bigger than it is. But it wasn't too bad. They do not have complimentary breakfast. It's over priced for what you get.
Rooms needed to be dusted. Mini bar is electronic and not a refrigerator; DO NOT TOUCH or you will be charged.
Comfortable beds and attentive front desk staff. Some inattention to housekeeping in a room with a Murphy bed.
The staff was great and the room was very nice. The breakfast was terrific much better than expected for $1.Ut was a overall great experenice.
very helpful concierge. Decent location
good location, nice staff
The location The price
very attentive staff and very positive feeling
Good location, helpful staff poor plumbing, below average food and very high cost of room service
The staff and service was first-rate and the location made walking easy to the various monuments and museums. Also the train station was in easy walking distance. I can honestly say that there was nothing bad about this trip...my wife and I had a wonderful time!
I liked everything. The room was modern, well appointed, with a comfortable bed, and spacious bath. The staff was as pleasant and helpful as any I have encountered in some time. The location is great! I ate in the restaurant once and I enjoyed my meal. I look forward to my next visit. The closet space in the room I had was limited and would probably be tight for two people. This is a very small fault in an otherwise very pleasant stay.
Location, excellent door men. No premium channels. Broken toilet that was "fixed" twice but I had to fix it myself a couple times. No water pressure. House keeping only left us with 1 towel. View of a brick building 6ft from my window. Bar staff were disruptive and joking loudly with doormen while people waited at the bar.
very comfortable bed and room Most of the staff was excellent but one person was not friendly and didn't make effort to upgrade the room since the door of the room they gave me was broken. A second person immediately changed the room for the better.
The people at the front desk, the concierges, the doormen, and the housekeeps were truly concerned about my comfort and seeing that I had the best possible time in Washington. Your concierges are extremely knowledgeable and took the time necessary to help me find stores and restaurants; making phone calls for me to get things done. My own family doesn't care for me that well! Cannot think of anything. Oh, there is one little thing, the front door to my room, number 302, sticks. I meant to inform the front desk, but it was so insignificant compared to everything else, that I forgot.
Very polite & accommodating There was 1 towel for 2 guests each day that required making a phone call for towels everyday. There was no blanket on the bed, just an abrasive comforter that was too hot. The room was never cool enough. We paid for a room with a view, but ended up with a room that looked at a wall.
Location and cleanliness
Staff was very friendly and the room was clean, comfortable, and dark at night. At check in my wife asked about a refrigerator since she is pumping and the young lady had one sent to the room. The refrigerator was broken. We were able to make due with ice from the hall.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Miscommunication in the lounge regarding a wine selection, and subsequently being overcharged.
The hotel is ideally located in that it is walking distance to the White House and the Washington Monument. The room was also nicely appointed and clean. The staff was very nice and responsive. Service was on par with a 5 star experience. We booked the premier room through Kayak. The room we were give. Was TINY - e.g. distance between dresser and the bed was probably less than 2 feet. If I were a solo traveler, this would not have been a problem. However, with a toddler, this became an immediate safety concern. We upgraded to a deluxe room.
The hotel in a very nice location and the room very comfort. they give to me Room No 403 we can't sleep because of the noise of the air-condations from out side. and the hotel staff are not frindly
Location. Easy walk to many attractions as well as to my business destination.
Service was excellent They changed me an extra 200 dollars when I checked into the hotel, despite prepaying on Kayak
I liked the comfort and facilities particularly. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment and we were a group of 3 adults. The space was large and comfortable. The heating system was easy to manage and the kitchen area was better stocked with utensils/equipment than the place we stayed in NYC. I was particularly pleased to have a washing machine and dryer in the apartment. The staff were very welcoming and helpful with information. The location was also excellent - just a short walk from the White House and it was an easy walk to most museums etc. Our criticisms of AKA are minor. A "light breakfast" is available Monday to Friday. This is tailored to the American market. We would have found it more usuable if more cereal options and toast were provided.
An apartment feel in a hotel setting. Very comfortable and welcoming. Lots of space and facilities which made for a luxurious end to a 5 week travelling holiday. great position, quiet- 1 block from the white House and a short walk to the National Mall and close to Metrorail.
We like the great location and the friendly and helpful reception staff. Scott from engineering is very responsive and dedicated. The cleaning staff is one of the poorest we have encountered in our travels. Their attitude is surly and their work poor. On our cleaning last cleaning day, 30 July, dirty sheets were left all day in the general hallway just off the elevator and our room was not cleaned. It was cleaned Saturday by a resentful staffer, who did not replace towelling completely and we found out later, threw out or bags we were saving in the cabinet under the sink for our own trash and shopping.
No maid service
location of the hotel on center of the capital. in the 9th floor on my suite there was very noise left , which have a big sound when arrive to the floor, so he wakeup me of my sleep, many times on every day of my 12th night.
I had a very comfortable and modern furnished 1 bedroom apartment. It included a complete, well equipped kitchen and also a washer and dryer--quite luxurious! The public hallways always had a cooking smell--not always pleasant. The smell did not penetrate into the rooms.
The accomodations were fabulous. Great fitness and business center. Courteous staff and location can't be beat when business at the Capitol. Little trouble communicating with maid.
Location - walkable to everything Requested several items - fix drain in tub, additional remote for TV and did not get them.
terrace missing breakfast on Sunday
The beds. The fitness room. It was soooooo hot and there was no way to adjust the temperature.
Location was okay underwhelmed by room, asked for one kings bed but got 2 small double beds. No late night dining.
It was clean and looks nice from the outside They charge you for parking and they don't tell you. They tell you to come down for breakfast when you have to pay for breakfast after they say it's complementary.
Really good value - clean freindly and a really good safe location. I would recommend as on a direct straight road to white house. Bar good and freindly atmosphere with varied clientele watching Tv.. I felt comfortable having a beer alone there as my daughter was out - I would not do this at home. Staff gave good advice and hailed cab for us etc. No-
nothing special at the hotel . it runs but nothing special to come back . np
Hotel staff was very helpful Location is a bit remote to all main sightseeings
I was charged for breakfast although it was included in the cost the room
I'm upset that I can not get a refund!! I had to cancel my reservation due to a flight cancelation.
staff friendliness and professionalism were great, especially night staff at reception. Found one of the staff at the gift store gave incorrect info regarding tour pick up times, but we got the correct info from the person who was there the next day.
manager was very helpful in resolving difference in price between booking.com price and price on arrival
Rooftop pool, baggage storage service, polite and efficient staff, central location
the bathtub, room service was prompt
Very modern and clean facilities. The staff. Location
Sufficient for a stay over night.
The hotel was very central to points of interest (for me) ie historical sites, shopping, gay neighborhood. All within walking distance. Fantastically clean. No negatives
My wife and I prefer boutique hotels, with heavy emphasis on set and setting. this place creates an environment that transports you from the norm of your life to the fantastical. Highly recommend this hotel! Was very romantic, upgrade to a king studio as we did, or better. Such a magical place! The only comment I would have is to park you car directly across the street from the hotel where the parking is around $20 a day instead of teh hotels $38 dollar valet service.
Great hotel very poor housekeeping Our room was not cleaned after requesting twice Room was not cleaned till after 8:00pm. At time of check out Valet pulled up our car and it was badly damaged. At time of payment I was charged for parking $35.00 each day After I complained about damage to car I wasn't charged for parking. I paid my bill over $500.00 I asked to see manager and complained about room not being cleaned until after 8
Decor and bed. As is usually the case in the USA, most staff less than fully competent.
great room, location, cleanliness no hot shower
Very nice hotel, good location, staff very helpful.
i found a real good offer - 92 dollars a day for a double room
Hip Decor, clean, comfortable.
