Another great visit to Renaissance - DC - Dupont Circle

Our daughter is a student at George Washington University. The hotel is a mere 3 blocks from the central campus, so it's a hard location to beat. Staff is always helpful, room (small this time) is always comfortable and exceptionally clean. New food options at Washington Circle and 23rd Street, NW, not to mention just-opened Whole Foods store have only added to the experience.

Great location, great value, great staff.

I'm on the road frequently and I loved this hotel, great value, great location, great staff, close to the Metro and bus routes--even enough electrical outlets in my room to allow me to charge all my toys. The only thing that I missed was a pool and sauna, but other than that definitely a place that I would stay again. I had friends staying a a much more upscale property who preferred my hotel.

Needs Something

Great location. Nice loby. Really nothing more. The rooms are tiny. View is not good at all. Most of the doors don't close completely by themselves. We had someone try to come in at 3AM. You're not a detective just close the door and move on! The next night a saw someone else's door across from us with a door that wasn't closed all the way and gently pulled it closed. It's a huge security problem. When I brought it up I was made out to look like a snob. Not impressed with this place at all. Wanted to move but we were only there for a weekend.

Free upgrade to club level a nice surprise

It was a nice surprise to check in and receive a room on the club level. The delicious breakfasts, snacks and room to relax were wonderful. This saved me time and money. It was a nice perk.

An upgrade to the club level might be worth the cost to you, depending on what that is at the time, I suppose. I'd certainly ask about it.
