Washington, D.C.'s Mayflower joins Marriott's Autograph Collection

The Mayflower hotel in Washington, D.C., is declaring its independence as of July 1, 2015. Updated after a $20-million room renovation, The Mayflower will join the Autograph Collection, Marriott International's portfolio of independent hotels recognized for celebrating individuality. 

The Mayflower completed its final phase of a top-to-bottom renovation, with all 583 rooms and 74 suites undergoing a makeover. The $20-million project, spearheaded by The Gettys Group design firm, maintained the 10-story hotel’s history while updating its look.

The Mayflower will also offer increased bandwidth for better high-speed access for guests as well as “smart thermostats” with a chip imbedded in the guest’s key card, which communicates with the AC unit when the room is occupied in order to adjust accordingly.
