My wife and I are owners at several MCVI properties and welcomed the addition of the Pulse concept when it was introduced a few years ago since we don't necessarily like to vacation at spots that offer the full villa experience. As we get older (early 60's), we find ourselves visiting cities more and more and the Pulse fits our lifestyle. Yes they are simply hotel rooms, but they are typically well appointed and in the heart of things.

That said, we spent four nights at the Mayflower two weeks ago and wasn't disappointed. We opted for an Executive room, which is a very large one bedroom. The bedroom was huge, but as others have mentioned, a bit sparse. For all of the square footage that the bedroom has to offer, Marriott decided not to place a dresser in it, which meant that my wife and I lived out of our suitcases for our entire stay. Not cool.

The rest of the unit consists of a very large living room area and small kitchenette. While it doesn't contain a microwave, there is one available on the floor next to the ice machine. The large, well appointed bathroom's shower had plenty of pressure and hot water. The Mayflower is an old hotel in the grand fashion and it sparkles throughout.

The location of the Mayflower just can't be beat. Situated near the corner of Connecticut and L Street, it's literally steps away from the Farragut North Metro station. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and our favorite was about fifty feet away from the hotel, a French restaurant named Les Desales, on Desales Street. They have a fantastic Happy Hour and their dinner menu was phenomenal. Not terribly far away is Old Ebbitt, where a great meal can be had anytime of day.

My wife and I were so impressed by this property that we are offering our children some points to experience it for themselves.

Some here have voiced disappointment that their Elite status wasn't honored at this property, which should be expected as it is clearly stated in the program rules that Vacation Club properties do not participate in elite benefits (and never have), whether it's breakfast or late checkout. I'm a lifetime Titanium (2,100+ days) and knew going into this property that I would not be entitled to breakfast in the restaurant.

Others have mentioned small rooms, which is to be expected since Pulse properties are in urban areas where space is at a premium. My wife and I have spent at least 40 nights at the Pulse New York and know exactly what to expect in terms of accommodations and service. Others have mentioned the lack of a kitchen, pffft.

Our room on the MVC Pulse 7th floor of the Marriott Autograph Mayflower is a lovely, spacious, comfortable, replete with ample closet space, a large TV, a desk, large sofas, and a king size bed. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room just down the hall from ours was where President Roosevelt made a famous speech decades ago! We found a convenient breakfast place right across the street from the back entrance. And one night we had dinner at Rewind, a short walk from the hotel. On another we walked to the famed Old Ebbitt Inn near the White House. Another things we liked about this historical landmark hotel was its proximity to the Farragut North Metro station with easy access to Union Station and Reagan National, and short distance from many DC attractions. Parking at $63 a day was a bit steep.

Only two queen beds for 3 adults was not a great option for us and the hotel did not offer another reasonable affordable option. There was no sofa sleeper or roll out beds. We defaulted to an air mattress that no one was trilled about for three nights. We otherwise met Kevin on the first day and he was helpful with great local info, was always friendly, and he always offered a daily warm greeting and smile. Kevin did his part to help make our experience in DC an overall great family visit.

I am a longtime Marriott timeshare owner, over two decades. We own timeshares at the Timberlodge, Ko Olina, Waiohai, and Palm Desert Villas 2. I am also a titanium elite member, which means at least 75 Marriott stays per year. Needless to say, I have a lot of experience with both timeshare and hotel properties owned by Marriott. I have also stayed at the Pulse properties in SF and San Diego.

We checked into the Mayflower Pulse today. When I compare this room to other Marriott Pulses, timeshares, AND Marriott hotels, this property hits well below all marks. First, this is NOT like other Pulses or hotels. Other Marriott pulses and timeshares have silverware, dishes, and microwaves etc, as timeshares are meant for extended stays, unlike hotels. This Pulse has None of the above. It’s a tiny hotel room that lacks even basic hotel, and even motel, features. For example, every hotel I’ve ever stayed in has rudimentary furnishings, like NIGHTSTANDS. I have never stayed in a hotel- I have stayed at literally hundreds of hotels around the world- that didn’t even have nightstands. I measured the space beside the bed and went online and found several nightstands that fit the spaces. It really is quite remarkable that a simple, extremely basic, very affordable detail like a nightstand, something that is found in pretty much every hotel, is not even here. I needed to leave this review so that you can plan accordingly and manage, or lower, your expectations.
For saavy travelers, and for those who are looking to use their Marriott timeshare points at a Pulse, don’t use them at this one. The location is good but that is it. The Metro gets you everywhere so you don’t need a “prime” location if you prefer a bigger space and basic features offered in other hotel rooms, like nightstands. The San Francisco Pulse and the San Diego Pulse are fantastic. For this Pulse, save your points and just book a DC hotel. Internet is also not reliable, either, for those needing good access.

All Junior Suites on the Pulse 7th floor are not created equal. They are not the same size, nor have the same amenities. We discovered that truth this time around. The Club Lounge is still not open, so having breakfast at Edgars is a pricey endeavor. Their website says this "property features well-appointed guest rooms and suites that offer guests a blend of modern style and historic elegance." Our smallish suite was neither well appointed, not even a table by the chair or sofa to put a glass on, nor a microwave even though there is a full sized dining room table in the room, and one small closet, and certainly not elegant with tears in the sofa, carpeting that is falling a part and shower doors that don't fully close. The 7th floor was given over to create the Pulse in 2015 it seems it has not be refurbished since then. This could be a great Pulse, it has a perfect location and an excellent hard working staff, if it would live up to its web site description. One new thing? After a number of years of complaints and the pandemic, each room now has a coffee maker.

The hotel rooms are in desperate need of a refresh. The first room (#723) was a tiny corner room that barely fit the bed and a small desk. There was debris on the bedding so I asked to be moved to a different room. The next room (#710) was a normal size but desperately needed a deep cleaning. The zippered mattress cover was unzipped and hanging off the mattress. Instead of removing or rezipping, the sheets were fitted over top of it with the mattress pad hanging out. The upholstered headboard was covered in dust. Shower was grimy and footprints on bathroom floor so clearly had not been mopped. Air conditioner under window extremely loud. Stay somewhere else.

We are Marriott Vacation Club owners visiting a Club Pulse property for the first time. First impressions are positive: We checked in at 8:30 am and were pleased to learn that there was a room ready on the 7th floor, which is the club pulse floor with complimentary coffee and pastries in the morning and afternoon snacks. There is a concierge station where the friendly staff can provide tour maps and assist with restaurant reservations, etc.
The room is a regular hotel room, very recently renovated. In fact, there’s still some construction work going on, but expected to be done this week. The room is sparsely furnished but clean. We were told that some new furniture is pending delivery. Nonetheless, there’s a mini fridge, keurig coffee machine and safe deposit.
The location is central to lots of tourist attractions and great restaurants. The hotel itself is historic; we look forward to exploring the building.
Check in was friendly and quick. Will update the review at the end of our stay, but so far so good.

The Staff of the Mayflower hotel were outstanding. However, It was never made clear that the MVC Pulse in DC at the Mayflower was a separate entity from the mayflower hotel itself until after we arrived. The room was new, modern, quiet and comfortable. That said it also did not have a coffee maker, microwave or robes. Downstairs coffee was only available until 1030 AM. My wife was NOT happy (and you know the old saying). Also, the USB chargers in the tables only worked on one of the three and the shower drained slowly (but it did drain). The owner update (sales presentation) was professional and we felt no pressure. The concierge (there was one for the MVC and one for the hotel) were very helpful and professional. Would have been a five star stay if not for the missing items she has come to expect at any Marriott (she is a titanium elite member so a little "spoiled" maybe). The red line DC metro stop is 1/2 block away. We had no need for a car the whole week. Parking seemed HIGH, my wife said $63 a night! The restaurant was quite good and had good service.

This property is very luxurious. The lobby is quite nice and the chandeliers were very nicely laid out. Additionally, the Christmas decorations was quite good. The check-in experience was good, however, the challenge was getting luggage to the room. Since there is almost hardly any parking space, getting the luggage unloaded and then separately park was car was a bit inconvenient. Regardless, the good thing is that the property did advice that we should find a parking spot in advance nearby. We used iparkit to get the parking garage for our stay.
Coming back to the hotel, the room was really nice. The two queen beds were very comfortable and the wallpapers were nicely done. The room was really big and spacious. The coat room and bathroom were also quite spacious.
This property is quite close to White House (walking distance) and it is convenient to take cabs to visit museums nearby. Overall, a wonderful experience with Marriott Vacation Club property.
