Nice but not worth it

Posted Sep 2, 2016
This hotel is fine but I expected amazing. The staff is great but there's nothing special about the room and the location is isolated.

Super 5* hotel

Posted Aug 25, 2016
Pros: Staff were great.
Cons: Should have free WIFI. Only bit of our stay that was a real disappointment.
Location: Great location for sight seeing, especially the national monuments. Not so handy for restaurants. Need taxis to go most places.
Great staff in every department but especially at the front door and the concierge. We experienced most of what the hotel had to offer and were very impressed. My kids want to return at Christmas time . . .

Beautiful hotel. Somewhat removed location.

Beauty hotel. Great facility and staff. If you're looking for places to walk to, it's a bit removed from the neighborhood areas, especially when it's very hot or cold out. Otherwise, great hotel.

Oriental Mandarin, Extraordinary Service

Posted Aug 17, 2016
I truly enjoyed my stay at the Oriental Mandarin in DC. The staff was absolutely wonderful. I stayed with my puppy and he was treated superbly. From checkin to checkout the service was excellent. And the staff were so welcoming to my puppy, providing him with an extra large doggy bed, water and food bowls with food mat and doggy cookies. I recommend this hotel to all.

OK, but you expect from Mandarin Oriental more...

Posted Aug 8, 2016
Location: There is nothing near the hotel, no restaurants etc.. only CVS and StarB that closes so early (about 7 pm).
I live in NYC and been in Central Park location a few times and it definitely has much more chic and luxury feel about it. Washington's one I wouldn't rate as 5-star one, but 4-star for sure. A little remove location as well. Next time I would stay in W.

Very nice hotel.

Posted Aug 5, 2016
Pros: Nice. Clean. Everything near perfect.
Cons: Temperature in the room could have been a bit cooler.
Location: This was the only disappointment. not enough food/snack options around the restaurant. there were few options, and the few had limited hours.
Courteous staff. Very accommodating. Tended to all requests very expeditiously.

Nice hotel close to all the museums and landmarks

Posted Jul 27, 2016
Pros: Very close to all the monuments and museums is a big plus. But, I think that the price is not worth it. I would not stay here again for what I paid.
Cons: Teach staff on how to deliver drinks when ordered via room service.
We had a pleasant stay except for the following things. 1) When ordering room service, the staff did not cover drinks with cling wrap. On one occasion, we found a fly in one of our drinks. 2) The bathroom door lock was broken. 3) The bathroom door required a lot of effort to close completely. Our kids could not close the door. 4) One of the lights inside the pool was broken and on the pool floor( i.e. inside the water). If I had not noticed it and asked the kids to stay away for that area, they might have been hurt. 5) The whole area where the hotel is lost power for approx. 24 hours. The hotel had some lights working but no a/c and no lights inside the room. I was surprised that a hotel that charges so much money does not have backup power.
