Great Hotel for Monuments Visit

Loved the Renaissance!! Very central to all the monuments and great sight seeing. Lot's of food choices nearby, along with very good night life. You will not go wrong with this hotel! Very clean and has an update feel. I've stayed here twice and this hotel never disappoints. Very friendly staff to boot!

Wonderful experience

I definitively will come back to this hotel whenever I need to be in Washington DC. Everything was perfect and the proximity of the most important touristic places in DC makes it so practical.

Great location, great place to stay

Great central DC location--close to Metro and many DC attractions. Many restaurants in area. Room comfortable and clean. Only thing I would say is TV reception was poor on many channels, but a minor detail. Also had to seek out maid twice to get additional room supplies (shampoo, toilet paper, etc.) not provided with cleaning service.

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
