I stayed at the hotel a few nights ago. The rooms had been recently renovated and were great. The bathroom had a nice shower and was spacious. The rooms were large and the bed was very comfortable. The location is fantastic for business or tourism. My new favorite hotel in DC.

The room was quiet, comfy and clean. Great location for the convention center or the Verizon center. We had room service for one meal and one night for desert only, the deserts were perfect!
For the price, I wish there was a deal on parking for hotel guests.
Reminder, street parking is free on all DC streets Sundays and Federal holidays.

They redid the rooms since the last time we were there. Much nicer than before however did not appear to be vacuumed. Long hairs which were definitely not ours all over.....which with a 3-year old is bad. Faucet and shower both dripped. No fan in bathroom. Outside windows were fogged up all the time and the heat seemed to make the room humid like a sauna. Beds were extremely small but very comfortable. Service was great. They did however charge me $20 a night too much.

Dear asdf159,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay at our hotel.

I am glad that you believe that with our recent room renovations that the hotel is better than it used to be. However, the lack of cleanliness you experienced is not up to our standard. I understand how concerning it is with a small child to expect a perfectly clean room. I do apologize that we did not provide that during your stay as well as charging you $20 too much for your stay. If you paid by debit card, as part of industry standard, are incidental holds and will be released in the next few days by your bank. If you paid by credit card, please reach out to our Front Office Manager, Jason.Geiger@renaissancehotels.com and he will be happy to take care of these charges for you.

Despite the challenges you encountered, you mentioned that our staff service was great. I do hope that you come back to visit us and insure that we will take great care of you!

Sincerely,

Sharon Lockwood
General Manager

Stayed here for a night and loved it. The staff was very helpful and the decor is amazing. The hotel is very convenient and in the heart of D.C. Everything is within walking distance. The rooms were spacious and equipped with all the necessary amenities. I especially loved the aveeno soap..:) Thankful for a wonderful stay.

I love the decor as well! The newly renovated guest rooms depict a whimsical approach to Washington, DC and the rooms have it all for the frequent traveler.

I must admit that all the amenities - from Starbuck's to miXX lounge to Vida Fitness Center to Aveda products - this hotel does have it all!

Please come back and visit us again soon!

Well it was hot - really hot (July 4) - and this place was cool. A blessing. Great rooms, location, wifi, lovely bar and hotel amenities. I would like to have stayed here longer to enjoy the sites and enjoy this hotel more.

No free breakfast (in case you wanted to know). Triple share means a roll-away tucked into the room. Disappointed again on this front that you have to move things around (yourself) and squish this in. Definitely must be an odd request in many hotels.

Starbucks downstairs and a small cafe to buy a cold breakfast or snack from. Lots of nooks and lounges to rest in and use the hotel wifi (you have to purchase this service if you want to use it in the room). The staff were helpful and available to answer questions. Great help in finding us one car to take us all to the airport (one car and all that luggage).

Love to go back to Washington and will seek this hotel out again.

Dear PennyJAus,

Thank you for writing a review about your stay with us in July. I must admit that I WISH it was ... really hot... as we are bracing for 8 inches of snow : )

I'm thrilled that our team was able to take care of you during your stay and was able to find one car to take you and your friends to the airport.

I do hope that you come back and visit us again soon...and that it warms up in DC too!

Renaissance has it all.....nice Executive club with full breakfast and very heavy evening "snacks", one of the best equipped gyms I've seen at a Marriott, sports bar, a more traditional dining room, large-large lobby with lots of "meeting corners," hotel is minutes from anywhere in central DC, plenty of staff floating around the lobby to answer questions.

Room Tip: If you are a Marriott Gold or Platium member you have access to the 2nd floor Exective club -- there...

We thought we'd end our holiday with a little luxury, and Renaissance delivered! It was an amazing room, with terrific views, and also plenty of space! Plus, it had cable TV which was a nice little bonus as there were plenty of sports to take in.

Located right in the center of town, about a 5min walk from the Verizon Centre, and no more than 10mins from the White House, this place had it all. Although it only had free wifi in the reception, there were plenty of seats available, including at the bar. If I ever go to Washington DC again, I'll be staying here!
