    went there for parking and the place was closed. No notes or anything telling us what to do about parking when I had already prepaid online.

    The service is good like all MO's, the rooms are quality and comfortable, the food is excellent and it has a great gym. Having said all that there is something missing, perhaps it's the poor location.

    For all the people with positive Feedback: have you ever been in Mandarin Oriental Bangkok??? So please go there and realize that you should be ashamed that you have no taste at all!

    Wonderful service. Ask for higher level room if you want to avoid hearing the train on the city side.

    If you are here for an event and you need wifi, you'll have to walk across to the Starbucks.

    If you're having room service, the Thai green curry is excellent.

    Besides the classic Mandarin Oriental perks that we always swoon for (flawless service, a divine spa, a hotspot lounge and restaurant, well-appointed rooms), we love the Tidal Basin views. Read more · July 1, 2013

    It’s got a prime location near the Mall; one of the District’s top restaurants, City Zen; and a Presidential Suite in eye-popping black-and-gold chinoiserie.

    Amazing hotel. Best spa in the city. Great service. And Pong is truly an award winning bartender. Have him make you a "Canary."

    The rooms are definitely on the small side. The service is extraordinary, but I don't think the property is otherwise anything special.

    Service in the lower end restaurant (Sou'wester) is always slow. Expect dinner to take at least 2 hrs. Food was decent, though.
