Nice, but small and a bit noisy

Stayed overnight and used fitness center. Staff was friendly. Room furnishings and amenities were high quality (+ on the Aveda products), but the room itself was quite small. Fine for a single traveler, but would be very hard with kids. Room was noisy -- outside street noise transmitted through walls throughout the night -- especially around 5:30-6:00am when deliveries/trash removal was happening. Would stay again given price, but bring ear plugs.

Great location, great service

The location was great -- we were in town for the Rally to Restore Sanity and it was an easy walk to the mall. The concierge made dinner reservations for us and the staff was very helpful -- advising us to take the Metro to the airport the next day, for instance, since all roads were being blocked for the marathon. The walls do let partying noise intrude (two nights of partying next door)and it was on the expensive side for the size of the room. There is a nice bar and coffee shop on the first floor. We would definitely stay there again, but would first try the Best Western two doors down to save money; I doubt the quality is much different.

Renaissance Dupony Circle

Traveled from Boston to DC for a rally on the Mall. Extremely easy access from airport on the Metro...$7.20 round trip for 2!!!! Short walk from Dupont Circle Station. Short walk to Georgetown and easy walk to White House and Mall. Clean comfortable room. Concierge very helpful, valet suggested the bartender could make me an ice cream sundae when we asked for directions to an ice cream store one night at 9 p.m. He made a fabulous banana split with hot fudge! Only thing better would have been an outdoor pool to relax by after long walks. Also...reasonably priced good breakfast.

business best

Although more pricey than I usually pay this business trip needed to be comfortable to get work done and convenient to get to my meeting on time. I really appreciate the cleanliness of the room and all lighting and HVAC was energy efficient. Very friendly and helpful service staff. Give yourself a few minutes to walk to Metro or catch a cab when everyone else is at 8am.

Great location

There are great places to eat all around. Local pharmacy is half a block away for any essentials you may have forgotten. You are located between 2 metro stations, Dupont & Foggy Bottom. Trolley tours pick up and drop off at the front door if you want to sight see. We would stay here again.

Good location for a family vacation

Hotel was ideally located between two Metro stops. Also was close enough to walk to major DC attractions for those willing to add several miles to their daily activities. Overall, a very good hotel for value, location, cleanliness, amenities and staff.
