Breathtaking vistas of the water and city monuments serve as an enticing panoramic backdrop to the enticingly grand Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC. Built in the French style while reflecting the city’s iconic neoclassical architecture, the nine-story hotel follows the original L’Enfant Plan for Washington created in the late 1700s. The hotel’s architecture features a limestone facade, with columns, cornices and ornate bay and portal windows topped by a metal mansard roof. These elements complement the materials and color palette common to the overall Portals development, while reinforcing the hotel’s residential character and serving as a contrast to the adjacent corporate and federal office buildings. Viewed from the waterfront, the green-roofed building’s silhouette curves away from the property line for acoustical and visual privacy, while at the same time allowing stunning views of the Jefferson Memorial, Tidal Basin, District Wharf, and other Washington landmarks.
The 373 rooms and suites at the hotel delight visitors with decor, marrying Asian elegance with stylish traditional touches, set against the hotel’s signature water and district views. Several layouts are made possible by the unique shape of the building, with guest rooms measuring between 400 to 700 square feet. Providing a luxurious and comfortable residential experience, the stylish decor is accented by shades of celadon and dashes of robin’s egg blue that play off earth tones and the rich dark wood furnishings. Understated wall coverings, an elegantly upholstery, along with lush carpets and drapery contribute to the serene atmosphere. The hotel’s Asian heritage is reflected in the exquisite details throughout the rooms. The spa-inspired marble bathrooms have been refreshed with richly designed textiles, elegant vanity finishes, jetted shower heads, separate soaking tubs, luxurious Atelier Cologne amenities and large dimmable LED lighted mirrors.
