Great Location, Great Price

I came to DC to visit graduate schools and this hotel's location was perfect. It is directly between Foggy Bottom, Georgetown, and Dupont Circle. Also, it is within two block of the Metro's Orange/Blue Lines and within three blocks of the Metro's Red Line. I can't think of a more convenient overall city location or easier access to the best Metro lines. The price was very impressive for the quality of the hotel. I ended up ordering room service and the fruit was actually ripe! During my last trip to DC, my hotel was more expensive and was located on the other side of Dupont Circle between the Dupont Circle and Faragut North stops on the Red Line. Overall the Renaissance hotel was a better value because of the location-I saved a lot of time on transportation.

Renaissance M Street Review

All the hotel personnel were very polite and helpful. I have stayed here before, and find the hotel nice looking, comfortable and in a good location for work and restaurants. However, I do't like that they charge for in-room internet connection. I have my own wireless connection, but the connectivity is very poor (I ge kicked out frequently). This is frustrating because I like working from my room in the evenings.

All you need

Close (enough)to Metro stops. Nice gym on premises. Very nice lounge with coffee bar. Clean room, no fridge, didn't miss it! Very friendly, accommodating staff. Reasonably priced.

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.
