Mayflower Hotel, Connecticut Ave.

This mid-1920s building designed by the NYC architects of Grand Central Terminal, Warren and Wetmore, had and has the hotel wing facing Connecticut and at the rear, facing 17th St, it was  originally an apartment tower, now converted to hotel rooms.  Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt stayed here before his first Inaugural. It has also been popular with at least one other NY governor.   It is one of the most commanding buildings on Connecticut Ave and has more architectonic quality than the other elegant Washington hotels.
