REVIEW: The Mandarin Oriental Jefferson Suite (Video)

Narrated Review, please watch in HD.

Washington, DC (May 27, 2013) – The Mandarin Oriental Washington, DC serves as a beacon of unvavering elegance, overlooking the Tidal Basin with two fanning wings holding 400 rooms, a manicured terrace, all reverent to Feng Shui elemental design. Rich tones of Amarillo yellow marble and rich lacquered oak frame the rotunda entrance ushering you into old world decadence.

Arguably one of the best hotels in Washington, DC, the Mandarin Oriental, located in the quiet southwest quarter, has something new to offer its guests: The Jefferson Suite.

With the look and feel of a residence (a spectacular one at that), the 1,900 square foot Jefferson Suite offers guests a welcoming, unpretentious space fine-tuned with luxury and comfort.

Rich dark wood floors pave all of the public spaces of the suite with decedent mahogany. A round dinner table for six sits in between two comfortable living spaces complete with Samsung SmartTVs. One living area is traditional; two chocolate leather nailhead trim chairs face a curvy loveseat and sofa covered in sumptuous Chenille fabric and textured accent pillows. There is a powder room near the foyer. Looking to your left, the second living area facing the kitchen; is modern. A chaise sofa and chair are finished with nailhead trim and upholstered with lemon cream and dusty blues. Accent carpets are light with calming lattice designs.

The full kitchen is complete with cutlery, glassware, and dining ware ready for at least 20-25 guests. Lush cherry-stained cabinets and betularie granite countertops frame all of the stainless-steel appliances.

The second bedroom just off of the kitchen is carpeted with two full beds, closet and full bathroom with glassed shower, separate bathtub and large vanity. The bathroom is almost wall-to-wall white marble. This room may also have the best view of the Jefferson Memorial and the Tidal Basin.

The master bedroom is spacious with a soft white leather king sleigh bed.

The master bedroom is spacious with a soft white leather king sleigh bed. A mirrored desk and smoky blue soft suede track-armed chair sit to the right of the room. The window faces the courtyard of the Mandarin Oriental for a beautiful view, and two large closets can accommodate an extended stay. The master bathroom is finished similar to the second bedroom’s: rich gold and silver accents beam brightly off white marble. Molton Brown shower supplies are fully appreciated.

Turndown service is taken care of when you leave your room, and they are quick and go unnoticed.

With your stay, you are granted access to the Tai Pan Clubroom, named after the high-powered executives and entrepreneurs of 19th Century Hong Kong and China. The residential style lounge has a fireplace and choice of seating, full bar, and various delectable bites and treats available throughout the day.

The Jefferson Suite provides a rich residential feel while all the amenities of the Mandarin Oriental are at your fingertips. Your memory will be permanently imprinted with the appropriately grandiose, marvelously composed Jefferson Suite.
