4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great visit to DC even in the rain!! Visited the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday night where a choir group sang for us. Amazing!!❤️

Impressive . I enjoyed my stay It was a beautiful hotel

The room was clean, luxurious, and had everything we needed, except complimentary slippers and shower gowns. The shower was excellent with strong water pressure and instant hot water. The beds were very comfortable with beautiful and downy beddings. The staff were nice and helpful both at the front desk and the restaurant. We had our breakfast included in our stay, and was very satisfied with the breakfast buffet they had. The lobby was spacious and had a wide range of comfortable seating options as well. Location-wise, it was the best possible location to the National Mall area for museums or to the Logan/Dupont Circles for restaurants. Two minor complaints would be that the blinds in our room were a bit stiff and hard to scroll up and down, and that the Starbucks coffee at their lobby was somehow blend compared to other Starbucks stores in DC.

There was construction going on all night on the north side of the hotel. Requested a room change but was told no other rooms available. The next night construction started again at 10 pm and we were moved to a tiny room away from the construction. We were comped one night but will not return to this hotel again. Not recommended.

My husband and I needed some time to get away and unwind from the stresses of everday life. We love the downtown Washington, DC location and the fact that we are within walking distance to lots of cool places. It was so peaceful that We felt as if we were the only ones on the floor. That’s just what we needed. AND The view was spectacular!!!

Easy walk to lots of dining and entertainment options

We only stayed one night but were really impressed with the front desk, staff and accommodations. I also liked the location of the hotel. My only complaint is the parking cost...which is common with every DC hotel.

Excellent stay and comfort. Late check in available. Perfect for D.C. Trip and to Arena

Nice hotel to stay with friends and family. Location is good shops and market are reachable. Room is very colorful and spacious. Reception staff is very professional, and very helpful. I will recommend this hotel to my friends and family to stay always.

Great staff and great service . This hotel is walking distance from EVERYTHING..

the hotel is so beautiful!! i recommend !!! very clean ,nice location !!!

The hotel staff was always very helpful. The location was great, within a couple of miles from everything to see.

Renaissance Washington DC Hotel provided the perfect resting place for our first trip to DC. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was close walking distance to all the sites we wanted to visit and we felt safe walking in the area at night. The Circulator bus to Georgetown was right outside the NY St entrance. It would have been nice if Wi-fi was free in the room, however, it was free in the hotel lobby, so that wasn't too bad. Overall we had a wonderful trip and would stay at the Renaissance hotel again.

Very good location, facilities and service. We have been there before and will be back!

Hotel and the staff were great. Only issue was when the Peru soccer team arrived for a few days stay. The lobby became noisy and overrun with their fans who were not even staying at the hotel. Made it annoying to get to get elevator or sit in the lobby to use the wifi. But other than that I was able to walk most everywhere I wanted to go and the staff was very helpful with directions

The staff were incredible, recommendations on restaurants were spot on. Location is wonderful for DC sightseeing, very close to Meto stops

Everything is very close. China Town a short walk too.

Perfect location for touring DC. Beautiful hotel with easy access.. nice bar, nice lounge area, breakfast buffet was so good it made me think that I was in a European hotel!

i was there for two nights. I felt there very comfortable. Room was modern furnished, clean and there were everything, what I needed.

Great vacation, hotel was close to Chinatown and several restaurants
