When visiting the nation’s capital, options of where to stay are endless. Situated on the Southwest waterfront, overlooking the Tidal Basin, the Mandarin Oriental is steps away from monuments and main attractions sought by visitors to the nation’s capital. The Mandarin Oriental D.C. has many of the features you would hope for from a luxurious hotel: beautifully designed spaces and guest rooms, world-class hospitality and scrumptious food and beverage offerings, and plenty of relaxing amenities, from a renowned spa services, a fitness center, and even an indoor pool. From the moment you enter the grandiose marble lobby, you feel as if you’re in an elegant sanctuary. The staff provides warm service that is refreshingly natural and makes guests feel as if they’re staying with caring family members. The team members are always quick to offer a warm greeting, a friendly tips and recommendation about the surrounding area, and good conversation. It was a pleasant surprise to strike up conversation and discover that many of the staff have been with the Mandarin Oriental family for many years, oftentimes with experience spanning across multiple properties. This natural hospitality is hard to come by and, aside from the signature Mandarin Oriental interior design features and first-rate food and beverage, really enhances the guest experience.
