The Experience

Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C.

Arrive at Mandarin Oriental, Washington D.C., overlooking the convenient Southwest Waterfront, and you know you have arrived somewhere special. The grand facade and unique porte cochere beckon. Walk through its doors and take in a sea of marble, limestone and glass. The lobby is inspired by the work of John Russell Pope, designer of the Jefferson Memorial, and boasts the familiar domed ceiling and column placement of the neighboring memorial. This urban oasis offers expansive Jefferson Memorial and Washington Monument views that are unmatched by any other luxury hotel in the Nation’s Capital.  

Breathtaking views of the water and city monuments serve as an enticing backdrop to the hotel. Empress Lounge, our lobby bar, features Afternoon Savories and Sweets Thursday-Sunday from 2:30pm-4:30pm.

The Tai Pan Club level is an exclusive sanctuary boasting countless benefits and premium services for today’s increasingly busy lifestyles. Honoring Mandarin Oriental’s eastern culture, our award-winning spa is an oasis of holistic therapy for the body, mind and spirit. Our heat and water experience is like no other, offering guests a serene journey through a muscle soothing amethyst steam room to the crystal freshness of our ice fountain.
