Renaissance Marriott

Overall, this was a good hotel. It's very close to DCA and is accessible by metro. Most of the staff at this hotel are very friendly (there was one crabby front desk clerk#. The amenities were very nice. The wifi was out in the hotel for nearly a day so I was unable to work from my room which was a huge pain. Room service is very overpriced. The room was not as clean as I would expect from such a pricey hotel #mildew on the shower curtain, stain on the bathroom counter).

Pokemon Worlds weekend

Our stay was about average overall. We were really NOT impressed with the beds. They were so small that 2 people trying to sleep were almost pushing each other out of bed. The beds were hard and not comfortable either. We stayed at a different hotel a month before for about half the price and it was a lot nicer experience with a hot breakfast. Was really not impressed with this stay. Overpriced.

Be careful with the restaurants in the area. They overprice their food for what you get and all fountain sodas taste the same no matter what kind you get.

Nice place, great location

Rooms we're clean and staff was very nice. On site Starbucks was a big plus. High end bar and sports bar with good late night apps. National mall was within walking distance and a ton of good restaurants near by.

Cab from the airport was about $20 so forget a car rental. D.C. Has more cabs than any city in the US.

So noisy

Hotel room walls must be paper thin because you can hear everything going on inside and outside the hotel... Could not sleep it was so noisy! Parking was very expensive and was not disclosed on travel website, not a good surprise upon arrival. When we came down for breakfast at 9:30, the buffet was almost empty, no pastries, no bread. It took the staff 25 minutes to replenish. Would not stay there again

Comfortable

Nice, comfortable hotel for an affordable price. A little far from the tourist attractions, but worth it. Restaurant was great and there's a gastro pub around the block called City Tap Room that was great.

Great getaway

The hotel was awesome! I enjoyed my stay and will return. I only had one minor problem, there was a faint smell of mildew probably in the carpet. I didn't let the hotel know, so I can't say they wouldn't have moved me. Other than that, everything else was great. Great location as well.
