Prominently placed along the Capital’s revitalized Southwest Waterfront, Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC offers five-star luxury, refreshed guestrooms, and extensive facilities in a serene picturesque setting. Just a short walk from the Nation’s most cherished monuments, the hotel is also close to a number of exciting restaurants and attractions in the new District Wharf neighborhood.

Stroll a few blocks to the new, Washington Channel-front development, The Wharf, where glass-and-steel mid-rise buildings hold concert venues, boutiques and restaurants with stellar views. Four blocks from the hotel, the Mall’s elegant Sackler Gallery houses Asian art in recently renovated digs around a serene courtyard.

Centrally located, The Wharf is the District’s waterfront destination that is easy to get to — and to get around. No other location in the region is as easily accessible as The Wharf. 

Centrally located in the Greater Washington Metropolitan Area, this waterfront neighborhood can be reached through all imaginable modes of transportation — from car and public transportation to bike and boat — and offers plenty of parking.

Travel by boat, shuttle, car or by foot!

If you’re checking out the region’s waterfront destinations, there’s no better way to get there than by water taxi. Come to The Wharf’s Transit Pier to catch a ride to Georgetown in DC, Old Town Alexandria in Virginia, or National Harbor in Maryland—and enjoy the scenic views of the nation’s capital from the Potomac.

The Wharf offers a SW Neighborhood Shuttle that is free and open to the public. With daily service and 10-minute headways, it’s easy and convenient to take the shuttle from The Wharf to the National Mall, with stops at L’Enfant Plaza each way.

From the scenic views off the wooden piers to window-shopping along cobblestone streets, The Wharf offers plenty of places to explore. So saunter down the promenade. Meander through the parks. Browse the stores. Or march right up to your favorite restaurants for a leisurely sit-down meal. At The Wharf, you’ll never run out of things to do and see.

We are able to offer a limited number of rooms at a group discount rate and a government per diem rate. 
To take advantage of these rates, please register for the Summit and use the hotel registration link provided in your confirmation email.
