    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.

    Skip the cab, take an Uber, 1st class sedan car service. Download the app on your smartphone, or go 2, and use invite code "yiy5a" to save $10 off your 1st ride.

    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

    I read that the Empress Lounge (lobby of Mandarin Oriental) has good jazz shows on Saturdays. I also read that the happy hour is weekdays from 5:30-7:30. Includes live entertainment. See link for Satu Read more

    Awesome hotel with great service, ask for a room with a view. Valet is expensive, uber if it you can.

    18 dollars for a glass of wine? No thank you.

    From the stunning rooms with jaw-dropping views, to mouth-watering cuisine, to a spa that caters to your every whim, there really is no reason to check out. Ever. Read more

    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.

    Checking in @MO_WASHINGTONDC for drinks and lunch. Top pick: Glamorous - gin, grand marnier, galliano, rose syrup, and lemon. FANTASTIC!

    A night away from Foggy Bottom for the most comfortable beds and bathtubs in DC. No reason not to make your next day a spa day

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

  • Andrea C.

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

    Andrea Conley · December 9, 2011

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