One thing that really gets me is when you stay at a costly hotel and they want to charge you for the internet. Really at over 400 bucks a night you have to charge for the internet? Even a Super 8 gives you free internet. The other thing that bugs me is when they have this little flyer trying to... More

We stayed at the Mayflower Renaissance for a week while traveling around D.C. It's a beautiful historic hotel. The rooms are very nice and rather large for a big city hotel. The bed was comfortable, the in room amenities were great, and the air conditioning worked well. There is a very different mix of people staying at the hotel, military,... More

I was booked for a king size bed, but on arrival was told I was being put in a queen size room due to overbooking. Went up to the room, and it's clear that this "queen" bed is nothing more than a full size mattress! In looking through the other reviews for this hotel, overbooking seems to be a persistent...

Here for a work conference, staying for the weekend. For work, upgraded to suite. Nice and super spacious. Comfortable bedding and linens. For personal, regular room which was super comfortable. Good AC, excellent bed, Aveda products, excellent and friendly staff. I'd stay here again. This place has great character and has an excellent location.

We stayed at this hotel in August 2014 whilst traveling the USA, the first impression as you enter the lobby definitely has the WOW factor, huge chandeliers hanging over marble floors which is all very luxurious.

The Mayflower is a classic. Solid construction, nice toiletries and linens. A labyrinth of a place. The e finally got a good restaurant again, and the lobby and bar have been renovated recently.

Location of the hotel is good and located near Dupont circle (if arriving by bus), metro if arriving from airport and city center.
