J. Edgar Hoover lunched there every day for 20 years, taking a blandly predictable chicken soup, cottage cheese and grapefruit. Charles Lindbergh celebrated the first-ever solo trans-Atlantic flight in a Mayflower ballroom. Franklin Delano Roosevelt penned his first inaugural speech in Room 776.
Marion S. Barry Jr., the former mayor of Washington, was seen smoking a crack pipe in 1989 in a Mayflower room; he was later convicted for drug possession. Members of the House pursuing the impeachment of President Bill Clinton interviewed Monica Lewinsky in the hotel’s 10th-floor Presidential Suite a decade later.
And now the Mayflower slapped the definitive punctuation mark on the end of Mr. Spitzer’s political career.
