The hotel is about a 1/2 mile from Dupont Circle. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are lovely, albeit a tad small. Definitely good for the price. Huge plus that they used Aveda products.

good for a quick trip

The Renassaince staff was friendly, room was clean enough, location was pretty good. This isn't a stand out place, but I'd stay there again if I needed a cheap, average hotel. The room Wifi is extra $, the beds are pretty small (full, not queen), and the room seemed a little cramped with too much furniture and the closet was clear behind the bed on the far side of the room. But I didn't spend all that much time there, and it's close to a metro station (which was unfortunately closed during my stay). Overall, not a bad place but nothing special.

Excellent Romantic Overnight

Very professional and courteous staff. Comfortable room. Central location. Reasonably priced. Nice bar. Only negative was valet service as it takes 25 minutes to get vehicle. Knew ahead of time, so was able to plan for the delay.

Great location

Had a fantastic week in Washington at this very conveniently located hotel between dupont and foggy bottom. The staff were very friendly and kind further enhancing the experience. The only down side was major drilling works of the garage / basement that rattled the whole building and started at 8am every morning, however as we were out and about to explore at this time it made no impact on our trip.

annoyed

I've stayed here before - for NYE actually about two eyars ago and had a great experience. This time not so much. We were given a king room on the 4th floor. The layout was nice the room itself was cute not very modern but was fine. The bathroom was where the problem was. The sink area had like makeup stains on the marble or whatever the sink area is made off and there were hairs on the shower curtain which by the way is towel material....? when was the last time you had a towel material shower curtain? Anyways - moving past all that the walls are a bit thin we heard our neighbors but what really made this stay terrible was GETTING YOUR CAR IN THE MORNING. IT TOOK 30 MINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! These valet guys were just so slow and literally had zero clue what was going on. They weren't friendly or catering to your needs. Checking in was east and fast tho! won't be staying here again.

Luxurious...except for noise

Beautiful building. Tremendous staff. Unbeatable location. Meticulously clean. Luxurious and comfortable in every way...except for the paper thin walls. Our neighbors weren't noisy, the walls are just too thin. We stayed two nights during the week for business and two nights during the weekend for fun. If only we could have slept at night, this would have been a perfect stay.
