The Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC is a longtime favorite of mine. Though the lobby was renovated not too long ago, the place has an old school DC feel about it that I like. The fact that I’ve never had anything but great service there keeps me coming back. I’ve reviewed the hotel before, so I will not do so again, but I thought I’d put up a few pictures of my room. When I looked at my reservation on the way to DC, I could see that I had been assigned to a standard room on the Club floor, which was just fine with me. However, at check in the very nice agent said let me see if we have a better room for you. I was upgraded to a Congressional Suite, not a certain former governor’s suite I’m sure.
The suite was on the 2nd floor, just far enough from the elevators. It was a 2 room suite with a bonus area where the coffee pot was located. The living area was quite large, complete with a sofa and two sitting chairs. There was a small desk as well.
I enjoyed the room, but did not get to spend much time in it unfortunately. Every now and then, things work out for Marriott Gold members too. Upgrade or not, the Mayflower Hotel is a favorite.
