special offers


• Admire the imposing façade of The Mayflower Hotel, Autograph Collection, the Grande Dame of Washington that is considered to be the city’s second-best address. The Mayflower is the largest luxury hotel in the District of Columbia and the longest continuously operating hotel in the Washington, DC area, and its lower façade features Indiana limestone, whereas the upper floors feature rusticated brick with terracotta trim.

• Discover the elegance and beauty of The Mayflower Hotel, which featured more gold leaf than any other building in the country, except for perhaps the Library of Congress, when it opened its doors in 1925. Admire the sweeping marble lobby, which features rich, regal detailing such as exquisite gilding, carvings, four hand-wrought bronze torchères, and a coffered skylight.

• Marvel at the history of The Mayflower throughout the hotel, as the hotel’s rooms and restaurants were fixtures among Washington’s powerful political circuit. The Mayflower held an inaugural ball in the Grand Ballroom every four years since Calvin Coolidge’s inaugural ball, which took place just two weeks after the hotel opened. The Mayflower served as Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s retreat while he worked on his 1933 inaugural address, Harry Truman lived at The Mayflower for the first 90 days of his presidential term, and FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover lunched at The Mayflower nearly every day that he was in town. Celebrities, royalty, and dignitaries from around the world have been guests of this prestigious landmark hotel.
