Within walking distance of some of Washington DC’s most famous monuments, and just five minutes from the White House, the Mandarin Oriental is an elegant retreat in one of the world’s most important cities. Close to both Capitol Hill and the Smithsonian Institute, it features beautifully designed rooms, a calming spa, fine restaurants and excellent service.
All treatments at the spa at the Mandarin Oriental Washington DC begin with a rejuvenating foot ritual, before a therapist personalises every experience. After a therapy in one of the eight treatment rooms or two beauty areas, guests can relax in the unique heat and water oasis, which soothes body and mind. Zen relaxation rooms complete the experience before guests browse the spa boutique.
Boasting 14 different types of rooms and suites, the Mandarin Oriental Washington DC offers luxury to every guest. Standard rooms are spacious, flooded with light and have views over the Washington and Jefferson Monuments and the Tidal Basin. They are furnished with a king bed, comfortable sofa, work desk and a spa-like marble bathroom with walk-in shower and corner tub. Suites feature extra luxuries and more space, and connecting rooms are also available.
