Presidential palettes at Mayflower Renaissance DC vie for votes this election season

With the debates reaching a peak and the election season coming to a head, it’s not just the current candidates that are aiming for votes. At Mayflower Renaissance DC, the popular destination for power breakfasts, DC debuts, and the historic host of many inaugural balls, there are many politically-inspired offerings before the inauguration.

From special room rates to a “race of taste,” votes are being tallied for Presidential candidates and pretzels alike. Upon check-in, guests are being given ballots until October 30th to cast their vote for their presidential-inspired snack at turndown service. From Left-wing Chocolate Caramels, a favorite of President Obama, to Conservative Jelly Beans a la President Ronald Reagan, guests have a wide array to select from whether voting along party lines or sweet tooth preferences.

Guests will not only enjoy the ballots for turndown snacks, as a non-partisan Presidential Cocktail menu has also been created to help ease Commander-and-Chief stresses of the day. A nod to President Franklin Roosevelt for repealing Prohibition and toast are certainly in order before, during, or after dinner.

Finally, the Red White and You package brings campaigners and voters together with a special offer. Inclusive of a daily breakfast, nightly parking, and a politically-inspired DVD collection for in-room viewing, rates begin at $224 per night and are available until inauguration.

So whether watching the West Wing and snacking on President Andrew Johnson’s favorite popcorn or laughing along with the Daily Show and enjoying President George H.W. Bush’s pork rinds, there is something for every facet of the political spectrum this election season at Mayflower Renaissance DC. Elect your own turndown this season and visit for reservations.
