Lovely hotel and location!

Pros: The room and bathroom were gorgeous. The amenities were superb and the staff were very accommodating and helpful. Room service food was delicious.
Cons: Our only minor gripe was the Sunday breakfast was $30 per person. A bit pricey for the buffet style offerings.
Location: It's in a very quiet section of the city, yet close enough to walk to the museums, mall, monuments, Metro and more. (All "m's" - how funny!)
My husband and I stayed for a 4-day anniversary getaway and it was wonderful! Fairly quick walk to all of the major sites, very quiet location, the hotel was lovely and so were the staff. We would definitely stay there again!

Excellent service, comfortable stay

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
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!

Comfortable Stay

The hotel is nice, the bedding and bathroom accommodations are very nice. A little pricey and very limited menu. Nothing to do at night in the hotel, would be great for older travelers. No night life! $15.00 a day for the internet was just too much when you are paying $400 to $600 a night for the room! The Spa was closed on the day we wanted to have a massage. The doorman offered to get us tickets to the Washington Monument, . He then told us two days later that they would be * (there was 7 of us).

Overall an Enjoyable Stay

First of all, the hotel is located just about 2 1/2 blocks away from the National Mall so it is definitely convenient. The rooms were adequate, with the bathroom being the nicest feature of the room. The view was of an office building, but I was staying there for the proximity of attractions, not for the view. Room service was quick and efficient, but expensive ( but what do you really expect). Also, you can order any item from one of the onsite restaurants with roomservice even if it is not listen in the room service booklet. The pool was nice and the exercise room was well appointed. Front desk staff was helpful and the maid service was very good. Only real complaints with the hotel were that the hotel lobby was having some trouble with flooding...random hammering and drilling going on in the hotel at 9 in the morning...and the guys at the front door were much more concerned with talking to eachother than helping (hands full with luggage and groceries, didn't even hold the door open.)

Excellent hotel

My husband and I came in for just a two-day stay at the end of April 2009 (1 night), but we would have loved to stay longer. We walked nearly everywhere the whole two days (except for the one visit to the Supreme Court for oral arguments . . . we didn't want to get too warm in our business clothes!). The location is beautiful, looking out over the Jefferson Memorial and Washington Monument. The room was the most exquisite hotel room either of us has ever stayed in . . . downright luxurious! We can't wait to come back.
