Got a postcard from Mayflower Hotel today. It says...
"$125 per night Thursday through Saturday night
Since 1925, the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel has welcomed presidents, royalty, celebrities and heads of state with its maginificent opulence. Located just minutes from the White House, national monuments and museums, you too can experience the royal treatment at our historic landmark for this special low rate. Offer valid now through Sept. 24 and Oct. 26 through Nov. 25, 2001. For reservations, call your travel agent or 1-800-HOTELS-1 and ask for rate code LRTD."
I'm not sure if you can also use the rate code at their web site: http://www.renaissancehotels.com.
I stayed at the Mayflower on my wedding night two years ago. It was very luxurious and opulent indeed.
