A+.This hotel gives spectacular service, and clean. They are spot on. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Stayed on club level They are also very receptive to customers complaints and needs which for me is important. I never heard anyone say they can't do something. The concierges are excellent and even went the extra mile to try to get...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 9 February 2017 via mobile

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"...

Dear Love2TravelLuxfromCA, First, thank you very much for the very kind five star review of Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC. We are glad that you are a fan. Second, yes, you do need to visit the Spa at Mandarin Oriental. Its not an indulgence. Even if you just visit the aqua treatments after a workout, we've designed our Spa to provide...

From the genuine greetings to the perfect water pressure in the shower, the Mandarin is a memorable luxury experience. Rather than overdo with extras, its staff anticipates the needs of its guests and responds quickly to any requests. For vacationers, it's located within walking distance of the Washington Mall, and has a CVS pharmacy and Starbucks next door. I would...

I recently was fortunate enough to attend a meeting in Washington and this visit to the Mandarin Oriental was the venue. I preface by saying that because I am just glad it was not being paid out of pocket but rather a business account! It is very expensive here, but if that is not an issue for you--lucky you!--this is...

Very convenient location (esp. if you are doing the DC tourist thing), but the property is showing its age, and the staff is not nearly as obliging as it should be for a MO hotel. I'm not even sure if they are familiar with the term "personal service". We had better luck booking dinner reservations through Open Table then we...

The concierge staff was incredibly helpful as they got us into the African American Museum, Bureau of Printing and Engraving AND they got us into Rasika which is one of the best Indian restaurants around! The location was great - we walked to all museums, the Lincoln, Jefferson and Washington Monument. 2 blocks to the Smithsonian Metro stop. The food...

Ordinarily, I have zero inclination to take the time to write an online review, but my stay last week at the Mandarin Oriental was such an amazing experience, I've decided to download the "TripAdvisor" App just for the sole purpose of thanking the staff who made this the BEST vacation of my life! Compared to every other east-coast American hotel...

Terrible service compared to Asia and Europe. I was literally dragged out of my room at noon with the most obnoxious and unwelcoming attitude I had experienced in any hotel. The staff has difficulty understanding any request that is 'off menu' or slightly tailored, the spa is average and over priced, the concierge is extremely unhelpful, plus the location is...

The hotel lives up to the expectations of the Mandarin group. Lobby is large and attractive, with attentive and helpful staff that deal with requests quickly and accurately. The rooms are large, comfortable and quiet. Not sure anywhere has better beds than the Mandarin - always guaranteed a great nights sleep. The bathrooms are large and top quality, both in...
