No doubt this is a very good hotel in an excellent location that could not be bettered. However, the extreme price tag and lack of a few minor amenities, plus a very expensive yet average breakfast make it impossible to rate it excellent. Spa is average as well.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 January 2017

My only complaints are first world problems- the mini fridge was too loud, the hair dryer broke, the bar was too noisy. The important things were all present and all the little things made the difference. The front desk was extremely helpful and friendly. Check in was a breeze and after a long plane ride it was nice to not...

Dear palamedes79, Every little detail in a luxury hotel is an opportunity to provide our guests with true delight. You've mentioned several of them: our caring colleagues, efficient check-in after a tiring flight, the surprise of wine and strawberries in your room and a guest room with high-quality appointments. Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC strives to provides a harmony of passionate...

Excellent hotel. One big drawback if you are picky about sheets. They are a 5 star hotel but still use flat sheets for the bottom sheet. It drives me crazy--when you move around they come up. Very nice sheets thick cotton--that doesn't breath. impeccable cleanliness. Close to the mall. And, for those wanting a feel of New England in DC--the...

The rooms, bathroom and service were excellent. The rooms are very spacious. The swimming pool is great. One small negative is that the only place to eat within walking distance is the hotel restaurant, the Muse. The restaurant is fine, but it would be nice if there is a less formal café available.

Lovely looking hotel from the outside and great first impressions when entering. Greeted by the receptionist who was very nice and give a complementary tea and hot towel. Restaurant is very nice but slightly expensive. 200 dollars for the 5 of us for burger and chips. Burger was asked to be medium but was served VERY RARE! Rooms are amazing...

I was pretty disappointed with this hotel. There is no self parking options, the front desk was understaffed on a Saturday afternoon. The front desk agent was a trainee and couldn't locate the reservation, then didn't know how to assign a different room other than what was already assigned. We had to wait 15 minutes before she could get someone...

This is a beautiful facility with incredible service. Friendly, prompt, easy-going, Also a great value. The room was nice size, had a great view of the Washington Monument and the Potomac River. Slightly off the beaten path so there isn't much traffic. Worth the visit and the bit of extra cash for the room.

I stay at the Mandarin in Washington once a year when I attend a legislative summit. The combination of the welcome, great service, comfortable/inviting lobby, beautiful room and amenities, and spa (the hot tub is large, the lighting is dim - I love it) make the annual stay one I truly look forward to. The meeting rooms and catering are...

Dear silfis56, We are so glad that you look forward to your annual visit to Washington DC and to Mandarin Oriental! Having already stayed with us, I hope that you took note of the results of our $20m guest room refurbishment.

I come here each year for a work conference and the Mandarin never disappoints. Everyone from the friendly check-in and welcome tea to the restaurants staff are 5-star and more. The rooms are beautifully and classically appointed with no signs of wear or lack of upkeep - always immaculate. Location is great whether you're hear for a an official "hill"...
