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.

Vacation in Washington, DC

The hotel was clean and inviting. The beds were comfortable and plenty of towels. I loved the shampoo and conditioner they provided. The carpet in the hallway reminded me of the hotels in Las Vegas and could use updating but they were clean. The Foggy Bottom subway is 3 blocks away down New Hampshire and the Dupont Circle is 4 blocks down New Hampshire the opposite way. There is a 7-11 across the street from the exit of Foggy Bottom where water, sodas and muffins, etc are available. Nice restaurants are abundant at Dupont Circle. No car is needed. Driving would be confusing and stressful. The Metro Bus and Circulator DC stop in front of the hotel. We took both. I would stay here again if I return to DC.

Buy a SMARTCARD to use on the subway, Metrobus or Circulator DC its very fast and more convenient than fumbling for $1 bills. Get one at Union Station then add more $$$ to it if needed.

Weekend Getaway

I had a wonderful stay at The Renassisance Dupont Circle. The staff was very friendly. They even offered me an umbrella on a rainy day. The room was comfortable, immaculate and very quiet. I would definitely stay there again.

Great location and excellent service

Perfect location and great services. Close to local restaurants and stores. Easy access to public transportation. Free WiFi available not only in the lobby will make this hotel even more attractive, as well as earlier service for breakfast (before 8am)

Nice hotel at a great location

The hotel was very convenient and centrally located. The room was clean and the staff hospitable. Walgreens located right across the street which was convenient. Walking distance from the Washington/Lincoln/Vietnam/WWII Memorials. No free WIFI in the rooms, but there is free WIFI and connected computers in the Lobby.
