Our conference hotel, Renaissance Mayflower, is a historic hotel located in the heart of the business district of Washington D.C., between White House and DuPont Circle, only one block from the nearest metro station. Nicknamed the "Grande Dame of Washington" at its opening in 1925, it has hosted the U.S. Presidential inaugural ball of Calvin Coolidge and it has been used by U.S. Presidents ever since. You can read more about the history of the Mayflower hotel at Wikipedia and at the Historic Hotels of America webpage.
