Mayflower Hotel

This impressive, ten-story Beaux Arts-style hotel has hosted many international political and diplomatic figures.

Designed by the New York architectural firm of Warren and Wetmore in association with Washington architect Robert F. Beresford, the Mayflower is a large, first-class hotel by a firm noted as national leaders in the design of this building type. It was erected during the Golden Age of hotel building, an era when American cities vied with each other to promote hotels of elegance and grandeur. The hotel is sometimes referred to as the "Hotel of Presidents," as the Mayflower has been host to a large number of personages of national and international importance who have figured prominently in the social, political, and diplomatic activities of the nation's capital.
