Mandarin Oriental Washington DC


Mandarin Oriental Washington DC Rating: 4.5 Pearls

No other D.C. hotel comes close to rivaling the Mandarin's ultra-tony, top-notch spa, fitness center, and 50-foot-long indoor heated pool. The spa boasts eight treatment rooms for its full-service, Asian-influenced menu of massages, body treatments, facials, and nail care. The eponymous hotel brand products are all-natural and paraben-free. But treatments are costly.
