Full accommodation information

Prominently positioned in the heart of the US capital along the buzzing Southwest Waterfront, the stately Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC is the perfect urban retreat if you’re looking for an active city break or a relaxing short stay.

Just moments away are the Smithsonian Museums, Capitol Hill and many National Monuments, while the District Wharf neighbourhood along the Potomac River offers luxury dining, shopping and family-friendly attractions.

Following a recent renovation, the 373 beautifully decorated rooms and 51 spacious suites provide a luxurious and comfortable residential experience. Blended with Oriental elegance and traditional American style, your accommodation will offer a spa-inspired marble bathroom and views of the marina, cityscape or Jefferson Memorial. Many of the rooms are interconnecting too, making it an ideal family option.

Set in a lush, tranquil oasis away from the hubbub of the city, it’s easy to forget that you’re just a short stroll away from the area’s famous monuments and attractions. The pedestrian promenade over Maine Avenue connects the hotel to District Wharf, Washington Marina, the Washington Fish Market (serving up fresh seafood since 1805) and the city’s famed Cherry Blossom trees along the Tidal Basin. What’s more, the White House is just 20 minutes away on foot.

Once you’ve had the chance to get to grips with US history via the many museums and landmarks, you’ll find plenty of facilities at the hotel to help you unwind and relax. Drop the kids off at the Panda Club for fun activities hosted by the ‘White House Nannies’, while you enjoy some pampering time together in the Forbes Four-Star rated spa.

For bespoke cocktails created by an experienced team of mixologists, along with culinary delights and afternoon tea overlooking beautifully blossoming Sakura, look no further than the Empress Lounge, ideal for intimate dinners, celebrations, or night caps.

City Life

Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C. is conveniently located in the centre of the city, so you’ll be perfectly placed to see it all. Often referred to as a cultural and historical melting pot, what's a trip to DC without visiting its museums and monuments?

Begin at the National Mall, an area stretching over two miles from the Lincoln Memorial at one end, past the Washington Monument to the U.S. Capitol Building at the other. Admiring these iconic sites, as well as touring the area’s world-class Smithsonian museums can easily dominate the focus of any trip.

From the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to the National Museum of Air & Space, there's a deep well of historic knowledge to discover, and they’re free to enter. The hotel is also perfectly located for visiting its most iconic site, The White House, the home of every U.S. president except George Washington.

You’re also close to the charming neighbourhood of Georgetown, Washington, D.C.’s oldest district, where you can dine at Martin’s Tavern, said to be where JFK proposed to Jackie Onassis.

Meanwhile, Penn Quarter & Chinatown draws everyone from foodies to sports fanatics; you’ll see where Abraham Lincoln was assassinated at Ford’s Theatre in 1865, dine your way around eateries with celebrity chefs at their helm and catch a show at the District’s Capital One Arena, typically hosting everything from professional sports teams to pop and rock icons.

Spa and Wellness

Clear your mind with a workout in the state-of-the-art fitness centre, or head for a morning swim at the 50-foot indoor lap pool. Recline on one of the poolside daybeds or enjoy the weather at the outdoor sundeck overlooking Washington marina and the Washington Channel.

After a day of exploring America’s capital, return to your luxurious base to restore tired muscles at the spa – considered one of the best and most comprehensive holistic spas in the city. You’re encouraged to arrive a minimum of 60 minutes prior to your scheduled treatment to immerse yourself in the spa’s ‘heat experience’: an amethyst steam room, experience shower, vitality pool and ice fountain.

Try the signature Cherry Blossom Treatment, combining the ancient art of beauty with a relaxing and enchanting body ritual and you’ll also receive a cherry-blossom-inspired gift. For more peace and quiet, you can always book a private yoga or meditation class, and wander the hotel’s own picturesque gardens to enjoy the beauty of the cherry blossom trees.
