Mandarin Oriental Washington

Mandarin Oriental Washington

Step into the Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C. hotel, and you will instantly know that you have arrived somewhere special. Situated near the Southwest Waterfront and Jefferson Memorial, the resort brings together the East-West flair. 

You will be awestruck merely by the hotel’s lobby, inspired by John Russel Pope, the Jefferson Memorial designer. From the lobby’s domed ceilings to the on-site mesmerizing art-gallery to the tranquilizing 10,000-square foot spa, all offer an experience like no other. 


Unlike any other luxury hotel in the National’s capital, this urban oasis presents its visitors with an opportunity to appreciate the Jefferson Memorial and Washington Monument's breathtaking views. 

The stunning sights of the nearby city hotspots and the surrounding water engulf the Mandarin Hotel, serving as an enticing backdrop. This elegant residence offers not only impeccable customer service but so much more, including elite rooms, a heated indoor pool, and a state-of-the-art gymnasium. 

Rooms and Suites

The Mandarin Oriental Hotel provides its guests with the most luxurious, spacious, and ultra-modern rooms. They are furnished with custom-designed, dark wood furniture featuring a relaxing neutral palette. 

Each room is accented by beautiful decorations, some colored celadon green, and others robin-egg blue. Comfortable beds dominate each room, covered by the softest Egyptian cotton sheets and the comfiest pillows, both making you press the snooze button repeatedly each morning.

The resort gives a special treat to its visitors during the famed cherry blossom season by providing the city's most splendid views and the close by monuments. Those who are fans of the cherry season should try the Water View rooms, overlooking the colorful cherry trees along the tidal basin. 


The bathrooms are no less than the top-notch rooms. They are lined by spa-inspired marble and tiles, fitted with rainfall showerheads, offering big, warm towels, and complemented by Gilchrist and Soames bath and body products. 


The hotel’s massive lobby speaks for itself, showcasing gleaming marble floors in contrast with walnut columns. The lobby houses classy rocking chairs and sofas, giving you the perfect excuse to linger for a little while longer. 


The ideal place to work out and relax simultaneously is the Mandarin Oriental Hotel’s 50-foot pool. This massive heated indoor water-body is the ‘it place’ for those who like to keep fit while mingling and widening their social circle. 

However, those guests who prefer sunbathing or just relaxing with their shades on should head straight to the adjoining sundeck. This perfect spot offers just the right amount of sunlight, enticing you to sit for long hours under the sun while appreciating the Potomac in close distance. 


If you believe that Zen-like-state is only possible in films, the spa will prove otherwise. The 10,000-plus-square foot-spa invites you into a seemingly virtual world of Zen-like ambiance with world-class services that leave you feeling like a royal. 

The Mandarin Oriental Hotel spa is Washington D.C.’s biggest and finest spas that locals often choose as a special birthday treat for themselves or their loved ones. One of the top favorites of some is the Bamboo Massage, a soothing session involving expert hand usage and bamboo. 

The masseur’s rhythmic movements gently stretch your muscles, eliminating all painful contractions and worries. 


The Mandarin Hotel caters to every visitor’s needs, including those who like to keep up with their exercise routines, whether vacationing or not. The splendid hotel also offers a specially designed 1,400 square-foot modern fitness center, which boasts the renowned TechnoGym training equipment. 

The gym amenities include cardio and resistance machines, stationary bicycles, free weights, cross-trainers, and treadmills. For those who like to admire themselves or monitor each of their movements while working out, massive mirrors are hung to enhance the experience. 

Moreover, personal trainers are available for your assistance that provide the ideal workout routine customized to your requirements.


The Empress Lounge's dining experience is one of a kind, offering a wide variety of combinations. The informal muse brings the Asian taste to the Americans with fantastic music, with dishes such as the Maine lobster XO and the prime beef tartare. 

The visitors who would rather keep it light, scrumptious snacks, unique cocktails, and afternoon tea are also available.

Location and Attractions

The Mandarin Hotel is built on a fairly quiet street for the guests' utmost comfort but reasonably close to the National Mall and the main Washington tourist attractions for easier access. The Jefferson Memorial is a few minutes’ walk away, while the Smithsonian metro station, which connects you to various stations across the city, is only 10 minutes away. 

With all its glory, the famous White House is a mere 15 minutes away from the hotel. If you rather take a stroll and keep close to the hotel, you will find a CVS right across the street and a Starbucks, only a block away, to satisfy your cravings.

Within a radius of four blocks is the well-known Museum of the Bible, a sweet treat for history lovers. A close-by pedestrian bridge leads straight to the busy Southwest Waterfront, adorned by some restaurants, music venues, and shops. 

Start your day with quick visits to the nearby attractions in the early morning, a loud concert at The Anthem in the evening, search for a book at Politics and Prose to read on your train rides. 

Also, try the different flavors at your disposal at the District Wharf restaurants to end your perfect day. While the indoor dining is excellent, the outdoor dining during the warmer months is something in itself. 

Overall Services and Facilities 

The United States Mandarin Oriental Washington boasts its Spa, offering Zen-like relaxation, rated a four-star amenity by Forbes. The spa features unique treatments developed after consultation with Traditional Chinese Medicine and aromatherapy and massage experts. 

Although a little pricey, the Oriental Essence massage begins at $195, while the anti-aging facial rounds off to $250. However, the process and the results make it worth the money.  Furthermore, the hotel includes 24/7 room service, bars, sauna, fitness center, and valet parking.

The staff is available for your service round the clock, ensuring you receive the best of everything with outstanding services.
