For nearly a century, The Mayflower’s draw has brought D.C.’s power scene and personalities to its doors, filling the hotel with a quintessentially capital spirit – and with a signature appeal as iconic as the hotel itself. The landmark hotel brings timeless elegance, integrity and contemporary style to its role as a vibrant social hub – a Washington, D.C. original since 1925. On July 1, 2015, The Mayflower Hotel became part of the Autograph Collection, Marriott International’s exclusive portfolio of hotels recognized for celebrating individuality. The hotel features 583 guest rooms and 74 suites along with nearly 43,000 square feet of event space for weddings, galas, banquets and meetings, as well as a fitness center and gracious amenities in the guest rooms like high-speed Internet access and dazzling city views. Visitors can tuck in to American brasserie fare featuring fresh and local ingredients at Edgar Bar & Kitchen, or they can explore the on-site floral boutique and Thomas Pink retail store in anticipation of a big date. From its commanding post on Connecticut Avenue, The Mayflower places guests perfectly in the city center – The National Mall, business district and fashionable Georgetown in easy striking distance. Nearby are the Shaw, Dupont Circle and Foggy Bottom neighborhoods, and the U Street Corridor with their many shops, restaurants, nightclubs, art galleries and music venues.
