“Comfortable bed, great pillows, and 5 minutes from Gallery”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

My room was very clean, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a wonderful area of town. There are many restaurants, and things to see an do. I took the Metro to the hotel from Reagan. I wouldn't suggest it. The sidewalks are uneven, and it makes it tough to haul luggage (I had a big suitcase). A cab only costs $15. Skip the Metro and treat yourself.

The hotel was recently remodeled and is very beautiful. The lobby was a wonderful place to hangout and meet colleagues for drinks and apps. The bed and pillows were so comfortable. I slept like a baby!

It also needs to be noted that when you stay at this hotel, you are only 5 minutes from the National Portrait Gallery, and the Gallery of American Art. Fabulous!

Room Tip: I really liked being in an interior room. It was extremely quiet.

The Renaissance Downtown Marriott in Washington DC is great. I have stayed here for 6 nights. I have stayed at many other top hotels in Washington, DC, and the Renaissance is great because it is about people and service. You can walk 1 1/2 blocks and be at Chinatown Station for the Yellow or Green Line Metro or about 4 blocks for the Red Line Metro which goes to Metro Center where you can get the Green, Blue and Orange Metro Lines to anywhere. There is a Walgreens nearby that has everything including wine, beer and groceries if you prefer to save a little. We only bought fruit from there which was fresh. A Starbuck's is located off the lobby. I had a meeting here and not at the convention center which is not far away, so if you have a meeting at the convention center, this would be a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south end are quiet

Stayed here for a conference, service was great from start to finish. Staff was helpful and professional, always available to assist and never had to wait to get help. Hotel was clean and well kept up. The room was a nice size and was comfortable for several nights stay. Good location, easy to walk to museums, shopping and dining.

Room Tip: I had a room on the interior which was very quiet.

Stayed here for a week for a convention but had plenty of time for leisure. Situated on Ninth street it took about 20 minutes to walk to main attractions. Plenty of good restaurants close by. Hotel is spotless clean and breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice for gluten free guests. We had room service twice quality was good and service was speedy even though the hotel was very busy.
Our room was on seventh floor and was very quiet. With very comfortable beds our sleep quality was excellent. Free Wi-Fi in lobby but not in room but is plenty of quiet space to work.
We loved it and would stay here again

Short 2 day vacation for our daughter to see DC for the first time. Looked for a central downtown hotel. Location was very good. Valet service very professional and convenient. Hotel desk staff friendly and helpful. Lobby and adjacent pub were well done. Room was okay. Mattress was very firm. Viewing the inset TV from the far bed not so good. Doors shut very loudly. Had noisy, constantly in and out guest adjacent to us on the floor. Hallway corridor sounds come ringing through. Having a dorm fridge in the room was very good. Internet connectivity was reliable. Speed was okay. I wish the hotel had a pool for our daughter, but we spent most of the days doing the sites. Bathroom was modern and nice. Climate control was easy to operate. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floors and toward the end of the hallways if you like it quieter.
