Nice ground floor, good location

Easy checking, small standard hotel room clean but dated somewhat bathroom, tiny bathtub and poor water pressure. Main problem was that every weekday morning by 8:00am by what sounded like construction above our room. When I asked the manager he said he has know about this for 4 months and asked the contractor to hold work until 10am - this didn't do a thing about the noise. Why put customers in rooms with active construction @ 300 a night? Would not book here again.

Right by the Bolt Bus station.

A very comfortable, spacious, clean room; a good central location; very convenient location that's right by the Bold Bus and other bus companies' DC station.

Great value, convenient location

Stayed at the Renaissance Washington Friday and Saturday nights during a New Years Eve trip with friends. The hotel is in the heart of downtown, right next to Chinatown with a metro station and the Smithsonian Art Museum a few blocks away. Our basic room with two double beds was a good size and the beds were very comfortable. A couple of drawbacks include expensive hotel parking (however there are other nearby options), no refrigerator in our room, and we had to pay $3.50 for a corkscrew. The bathroom was simple but not up to par with other "luxury hotels". Overall we had a pleasant stay and got a great deal for the money.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If driving: rather than park for $28/day in the hotel's underground deck, try one of the lots nearby. We parked right in front of the hotel at a lot across the street and paid $10/day (weekend rate). Also, street-side parking is free on Sundays.

We took advantage of an online rate and were very pleased with the value, especially considering it was a holiday. It was a great stay. Loved the expanded cable offerings.

Christmas in DC

We were in DC to spend time together- just the three of us. We love DC at Christmas because there are no lines at the Museums, and rates at the Hotels are much lower. We only have two complaints- I will get to those after I share the good stuff. We were very happy with our rate at this Hotel. The staff was excellent! 5 Star staff. It was near China Town, which we loved! The lobby area was super cool. We played games in the lobby because it has little semi-private lounges in scattered throughout. The only things we found upsetting were the bed- the worst ever...anywhere, and on our last day the maintenance crew was hammering on pipes non-stop. starting at 7:30 AM. We really wanted a lazy morning due to our long drive home- not possible! The bed was so old, and sunken in, and bouncy we had a lot of trouble sleeping. T workers literally hammered for 3 hours non-stop until we finally escaped!

Beautiful and great location

Hotel was beautiful on the inside...one of the nicest lobbies/bar/sitting areas I've seen on the east coast. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. The only issue we had was a bit of construction noise from the roof that started very early in the morning. I would highly recommend this hotel for the money and the location. Like anywhere in DC though, parking is $$$. Also there is wi-fi but its $13 a day. The Starbucks in the lobby was also very convenient in the AM.
