Washington, DC’s best waterfront hotel is undoubtedly the Four Star Mandarin Oriental Washington, DC, located on the city’s Southwest waterfront. The Mandarin is a standout among its U.S.-based counterparts, offering one of the city’s best fine dining restaurants (rated Four Stars by Forbes), CityZen, a popular afternoon tea, a Four Star rated spa and spacious guestrooms. If possible, opt for a guestroom offering views of the tidal basin and monuments. Cherry Blossom season is a particularly picturesque time to visit the hotel, as it offers prime views of the blooms and a location that is walking distance to many of the monuments and museums of the National Mall. Sunset is also a particularly pretty time to visit this hotel, as many rooms offer views of the planes taking off and landing at nearby Reagan National Airport.
