Washington 11th October
We have had a very cultural and historical day in Washington. Another early start to the day, sadly our poor old bodies are starting to feel the effects of the early morning starts. We have walked a thousand miles today or maybe it just seems that way.
Headed off in the bus again for a tour around Washington. First …

More DC Museum Action

We layered up for another cold day in DC.  We began by purchasing tickets on a double-decker tour bus. Aria was so looking forward to this simply because she saw some of them yesterday and she wanted to sit on the top floor of the bus. Well, it was about 40 degrees with some misting rain so she was disappointed when we denied her access to the …

Birthday in DC

March 15th is my birthday and what a good morning surprise to be showered with love and gifts from Laneshia and the kids as I awoke in bed at the Mayflower Hotel.

Laneshia gave me a MP3 player I had been wanting, so I was happy. As this was our last day in DC we packed up and checked out of our room. Our flight wasn't until later this …

A nice tour of DC on Day 1

We were up and at'em early this morning for our first vacation agenda item- a visit to the U.S. Capitol. Luckily, I had an insiders tip on how to smoothly visit the Capitol grounds: I contacted my U.S. Representatives office (Congressmen Burgess) and arranged for a private tour.

So we arrived at the Burgess' office in the Rayburn House …

Arrival in DC

I was already in DC this week for business related travel so this evening I took the Metro to Reagan National Airport to meet up with Laneshia who flew in with the kids. They arrived to DC to experience bitter cold temperatures compared to Texas but they came prepared with plenty of clothes layers.

Not much we could do tonight but get …

    The history and the great service made this a great stay. Even my young kids were impressed with the classic look of this hotel. Breakfast in the hotel was a nice and tasty treat as well.

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Mayflower Renaissance Washington, DC Hotel Washington DC

    A hotel who forgot the meaning of Service

    from

    On first visit our room was not serviced properly, to name a few items: trashcans not empty, no clean towels, no consistent turndown service, no replacement of toilet paper, etc. Was given caffeinated coffee, although label on pot stated it was decaf, on more than one occasion. Was charged the wrong room rate and then double charged because there were two people in the room. Two people in the room meant two folios to this hotel. The hotel management did correct the bill and compensated the other problems by reducing the overall cost of our stay. They asked we give them another try.

    Anxious to see renovation

    from

    The location and lobby are premium. There is simply no comparison to the concrete and giant atrium hotels of today. The Mayflower has some nice touches, too. The staff in the Town and Country Lounge are friendly and warm. They serve great drinks, and the music is nice when live and scheduled...cant count on it always. The cigar-friendly lounge shows some wear and tear.

    Location was A-Plus

    from

    4/2004 - The hotel location and the area around it was good. The room was smaller than I expected. A little difficult to move around in but otherwise was very clean and comfortable. This was a plus with me. I will stay here the next time I am in the area. I was a little disappoint that I had to hail my own taxi when there was three doormen standing at the doorway neither offered assistance.

    Fabulous Luxury Hotel

    from

    We spent the time between Christmas and New Year's at The Mayflower and it was amazing! The rooms are a bit smaller than some newer hotels, but this place has such history and charm. Every detail was taken care of.

    We travelled with our one year old baby and they were so gracious and helped us with everything we needed. We will be going back soon!

    A must stay!!

    from

    I stayed there in February 2003 while on a business trip. Words that spring to mind are: Plush, Lavish, Breathtaking!! It is without a doubt the most luxurious hotel that I have visited. Our room had a very nice view of DC. The beds were very comfortable and THE BATHROOM -- had brass fixtures -- even the toilet flushing handle was brass. Our bathroom even had a television in it!! As other's have mentioned...whether you can afford to stay there or not...it's worth a visit just to see the lobby that is astoundingly beautiful. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The lobby features a lounge with a wonderful pianist in the evenings and a restaurant highlighted by lavish murals on the walls. When we were there, we decided to splurge on the buffet (at $40/ person, it was high, but since it was raining, we decided to give it a chance). It was some of the finest food that I've tasted...from the chilled salmon to the creme brulee -- it was marvelous!! Bring your wallet and enjoy living in luxury!!

    The Waldorf of Washington DC

    from

    I stayed there for two nights in two different rooms. I had checked out after one night, but I had to extend my stay. This hotel was beautiful. I had a lot to compare it to since I had stayed in several DC hotels, none of which compare. The lobby, hallways and rooms are quite similar to the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York. I was very pleased with the staff and the room was clean and quiet. The marble bathrooms were gorgeous. It would be a great place for a couple to stay. I think it may have been newly remodeled after seeing the horrible reviews that others have posted. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

    Rundown

    from

    The Mayflower is in a great location and the lobby is very nice, but the rooms are shabby and rundown. The first room I was given was the size of a closet and had filthy carpet. The road noise was unbearable.

    Customer Service

    from

    My boss is going to the NFPA Conference in Washington in November. The Mayflower is the headquarters for the conference and if I were getting a room for myself instead of my boss, I would have found a room elsewhere. The registration desk employees are quite rude on the phone!

    Someone needs to send these people to customer service training!

    Quality but Expensive

    from

    The Renaissance Mayflower Hotel in Washington is superb. The block-long, chandelier encrusted foyer is breathtaking, the service is very good, the rooms are beautifully appointed and the location ideal – it’s a short walk to Washington’s excellent subway system and just a few blocks to some of the better restaurants in town. We were offered a complimentary upgrade and the room was luxurious indeed.

    Not worth the money, horrific service

    from

    I spent over two months in the Mayflower Hotel. I checked in and out everyweek, and each time they rooms I was put into were substandard and I would have to request new ones without massive stains and mildew. The best thing about the hotel is the waitstaff in the bar; they are warm and welcoming. All other service in the hotel is horrific-they either were incompetent or completely ignored requests. Here's a quick list of repeated problems-TONS of made up charges on the bill such as parking, mini bar, etc., there a 20 doormen and not a one will open the door for you, the chambermaids refused to refill toiletries and when you called for something, it would never arrive, the phones in most of my rooms did not work, the airconditioning barely works in most rooms, which is a problem in the height of summer, and there are many more.
