From its commanding post on Connecticut Avenue, The Mayflower places guests (political or not) perfectly in the city center. For nearly a century, The Mayflower's draw has brought D.C.'s power scene and personalities to its doors, filling the hotel with a quintessentially capital spirit – and with a signature appeal as iconic as the hotel itself.
The Mayflower recently completed a $20 million room renovation including their stunning Presidential Suite. The iconic hotel has a long history with Presidential events and moments in history:
- FDR wrote his infamous “the only thing we have to fear, is fear itself” speech at the hotel
- President Harry Truman is where The Mayflower received the nickname “Washington's Second Best Address” (he stayed here when the White House was remodeled)
- J. Edgar Hoover dined there every day
- And of course there was some scandal as well (looking at you, Spitzer)
