Awesome

We were in awe when we pulled up to the hotel, the valet was there to greet us. Very friendly all the way around. We walked everywhere we wanted to go with no problems. Great service!! Will be sure to make that our place to stay in Washington D.C.

Clean, Comfortable, Convenient

We were in town for 3 nights and 4 days to enjoy the city and sights. The location was stellar! The hotel staff was on par for what you would expect at a Renaissance property - professional, courteous and pulled together. The lobby was gorgeous as it underwent a complete renovation 3 months prior to our arrival. The rooms themselves were nice enough with adequate space, decent furnishings and comfortable beds and bedding (without the horrible polyester quilts). The rooms are slated to undergo remodeling next year. If we're back, we'd definitely stay there again.

Location and everything

We went to see DC on the Fourth of July and this was a really great location for the price. Easy access to the Smithsonion and fireworks. Nice lobby and great staff. Be sure to allow for extra money to park ($28-$38) And internet should be free at all hotels by now. Even the cheap hotels aren't cheap enough to charge for internet.

Plan your stay so that you combine trips to all the sights on the mall so that you don't have to take the walk, (slightly uphill) back to the hotel too many times in a day.

Good Value

This was a good location for our needs. We were in DC to make campus visits. The Renaissance Hotel offered good value. It's a nice upscale hotel. The rooms were pretty standard. Everything worked and it was clean. The hotel staff was pleasant and attentive. We had a late flight and my son ordered room service very close to the cut-off time. The food was hot and delicious. The hotel is also close to the metro system, which made getting around easy. Valet parking is expensive, but self parking is available at a reduced rate. The garage has in entrance directly into the hotel, which made me feel safe. There is a snack shop---sandwiches, cookies, cereal and fruit, drinks--off the lobby, as well as a Starbucks. This was convienent for grab and go. There is also on-site dining. We ate at the sports bar. The food was pretty good for the price. I would recommend this hotel, it's close to dining options and museums.

If you're traveling with kids/teens--try "FiveGuys" burger joint for a great "real" hamburger or hot dog and perfect fries. It's cook to order, cheap, and delicious!!

Luxury hotel/great price

Great location--just 3 blocks to the metro; beautiful facility, especially the lobby; Starbucks on the premises; The only negative--thin walls let in too many sounds, like door slamming and conversations in the hall.
