Renaissance M

Very nice hotel, excellent location, striking lobby, nice rooms. Front desk personnel are basic, not really warm or welcoming. Reminds you of TSA personnel. Gym is empty not used by guests. Not much selection. Too many unused cardio machines and lack of anything else. Wireless internet is expensive. $26.00 for 2 days is outreageous! At the daily rate of this hotel, it should be free. It´s insulting. I pay less for my monthly service at home.

Renaissance M Street

The hotel was accommodating when it came to changing my reservations, and that was good to know. However, a wedding was going on in the hotel the night I stayed, and there was noise from people being rowdy in the halls late at night.

Excellent Washington DC experience

The hotel location was excellent, ten minute walk to the Foggy Bottom Metro station. There were lots of restaurants and sandwich shops within easy walking distance. The neighborhood was safe and clean. The hotel staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We saw all of the major Washington DC sites and many of the minor ones during our seven day stay. After walking many miles each day, it was really great to return to a quiet, comfortable hotel to rest up for the next day.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

You could spend as much or as little as you want for dinner by walking just a few blocks. The selection was very good. If you wanted to walk a little further, Dupont Circle offered even more options and if you want to find that "memorable meal" you could walk about 1/2 hour on M Street to Georgetown for some historical restaurants and shopping.

Solid place for a tourist.

It is certainly a good place for tourists to stay. Hotel was recently updated and has a pleasant feel to it. Rooms are small but sufficient. A 15 min. walk to a nearest subway station could be a bit troublesome for those traveling with small kids, especially when you are coming back to the hotel, but the walk is safe and pleasant for adults. Plenty of good restaurants(turn right on M street and there is a nice small place with french name; further down M there is COSI - excellent food and inexpensive).

Solid place, great location

Went for 2 days to visit family - the hotel is in a great location: walking distance to Georgetown and Dupont circle and a short walk to the Metro station. The room is very clean generally and smells really good - only issue is that the room is really small, so probably not a great spot for families, but fine for singles or even couples if you don't plan to spend a lot of time in the room.

Nice but not great

The staff were generally friendly. Our room was a small, but I guess that's what we paid for. The room cleaning was a little skimpy. The seemed to cut corners and they never left extra soaps or shampoos even after we used them for several days. My wife had to ask for a shower cap, and we were never given more than two towels in our room. Nice hotels usually charge for internet, but there's is $13 a night. There is free internet at the coffee shop in the lobby. They also don't have a pool or jacuzzi, but I should have checked for that before hand. The bed, bathroom, and tv were very nice. I was expecting a little better service and amenities for a 4 star. I was planning on spending more time at the hotel, but ended up only sleeping there.
