Needed a place to stay nearby shops and easy to get to the airport the next morning. This was perfect. I was able to shop at Gucci, Moncler and have a nice dinner at a local restaurant. Go to my room. Nice clean gym and friendly staff.

I stayed here for a recent conference, and as such was able to receive a decently discounted rate. But, even for Washington, I think it is a bit spendy for what you get. Bedding and shampoos/etc were nice (Aveda shampoo from the low end of their range). There is an inner atrium which a large portion of the rooms face...

Stayed here to attend a meeting close by. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. It is located such that there is easy access to the surrounding attractions. It has a Starbucks and a nice sports bar located off the lobby.

Rooms are very small, but clean and well appointed. Club room is very well staffed and often restocked. Love their exercise room which is also a private gym so great equipment and space (not a cramped space so many hotel gyms. Two blocks to Metro.

I have stayed here several times and have always found the rooms to be clean and comfortable. Most staff are friendly, when checking in I think the front desk clerk could have been a little more friendly. While my husband had to work I was able to visit National Museum of Natural and American History. Taxis are available or if...

I was here for a conference, that was hosted in the basement of the same hotel. Overall, the hotel stay is high quality. Quite good rooms, spacious and quiet. The bed was big and comfortable. There is also a Starbucks inside the lobby, where you can have a simple breakfast, if you don't fancy the expensive but rich hotel breakfast....

I have stayed many times at this property when traveling to DC for business, and I can tell you that you want to be in the wing where the concierge lounge is located. I've stayed in both wings, and this one is best for "regular" king-sized rooms. It doesn't have a tub, but it does have a very nice, roomy...

We loved our recent stay at the Renaissance. I can't say enough about how friendly and attentive the staff are. The bellman was amazing with getting cabs and a smile as we hiked back up from the National Mall. If you wanted for something, it was because you didn't ask. The location of this hotel is very central to all...
