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.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

Renaissance in China Town

The Renaissance is a very conscious chain of hotels. The staff were quite nice and well informed of the current events in DC. The hotel is conveniently located in China Town and is within easy access of transportation. I would highly recommend staying here.

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.

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.

A great value

Very happy with the hotel, esp. the staff who were great. Some minor but basic issues...handbasin taps had some build-up which hadn't been cleaned and the house maintenance didn't empty the trash bin. Conveniently close to Metro Rail (Yellow line) and some great restaurants. Cherry blossoms were beautiful around the tidal basin. Enjoyed visits to the Library of Congress, Supreme Court and the Mt. Vernon. All the monuments and the memorial were extremely impressive.

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.

Beautiful and elegant

The hotel was gorgeous. The staff friendly. However, the handicapped room was way too far from the elevator. Difficult for someone on o2 to walk easily. My son and I received a room with a single King bed when I had asked for doubles. They did send in a roll away, which needs no explanation about the comfort.

Conveniently located and Comfortable

this was VERY conveniently located- minutes from all the smithsonian museums (we walked to all of them), as well as the capitol. there are also plenty of places to eat but BEWARE: DO NOT waste money on food, its very expensive and super small proportions. the room service is nice.

all nearby restaurants as well as the hotel's dining menu is very expensive.
