Convenient downtown location
Small standard rooms starting at 250 square feet
Labeled as the "second-best address" in D.C. by President Harry Truman (only beaten by the White House), the Mayflower Hotel has been a lodging favorite since 1925. Sitting just a block from the Farragut North metro stop in the downtown area, the Mayflower – now part of the Autograph Collection – makes a convenient base for sightseers hoping to check out the attractions and museums of the National Mall. The Mayflower also wins guests' approval with its elegant feel: Guest rooms are spacious and well appointed with custom duvets, down feather pillows and satellite TVs. And though some recent guests do complain of late-night noise, most report a satisfactory stay thanks to the mouthwatering cuisine served at the EDGAR Bar & Kitchen. Plus, those participating in the Marriott Bonvoy program may earn or use points by choosing to stay here.

Its location near the White House and powerful K Street corridor help make it one of the capital's see-and-be-seen hotels, especially for business travelers.



Public areas are grand and the modern guest rooms and suites feature marble surfaces in the bathrooms. The hotel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and it's convenient to shopping and businesses.
