Because of its close proximity to the White House,
the hotel is often referred to as
the Washington DC White House Hotel,
but is also just minutes away
from Smithsonian museums, national monuments,
and steps away from the city's finest restaurants
and shopping.

In addition, there are 3 metro subway lines

It is no wonder why the Renaissance Mayflower
