“Hip, funky vibe”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

I loved staying here! It has a cool, fresh vibe. The decor is fun and chic, both in the lobby and in the room. There are restaurants close by. Service was too notch. Good food in the restaurant. Loved how the lobby opened to the bar and restaurant and how it all came alive at night. I will be back.

I attended a conference and this was THE location for the stay. Room was ok for the price. Service at the front desk was average. The bell staff and transporation services were less than desireable. They advertise a shuttle to the Metro stop which is not close. Across a three day stay the shuttle was NEVER on time. In spite of a property to property shuttle, you are not allowed to ride this one. You must wait for the Metro shuttle. Tonight i specifically called to ask about the shuttle off the metro...told to wait five minutes and it would be there. It rolled by, never stopping. As I walked to the door and raised my hand, the shuttle left. I called and was told by the front desk that they'd try to reach the shuttle. 15 minutes later I called and the staff said he'd try to come by. I walked back in the snow and cold. Never saw the shuttle come by. Pretty walk....crappy service. I will NEVER stay at a Renaissance or related property again, and I travel frequently.

With my prior job I traveled to Arlington quite frequently. I stayed several places and finally found the most comfortable hotel for me. 5 stars is based on my experience in the Arlington area.

The Renaissance has a modern decor that is very pleasing. The bed is super comfortable so I am able to sleep well. I enjoy the view of the Potomac and Reagan National Airport as it is enjoyable to watch the activity.

The concierge lounge is well equipped and offers a nice evening snack as well as a generous continental breakfast. The restaurant and lounge on the main level is alright and works in a pinch. Since the hotel is in Crystal City, there are a variety of dining options nearby also.

When I travel to Arlington again, I will definitely plan to stay here again!

We recently had the opportunity to stay at this hotel for a few days. It is a beautiful hotel and the staff was amazing. We had booked three rooms, one for my husband and myself and two for our children and their families. Molly checked us in and was especially helpful in getting our rooms close together. The club room on the 14th floor was great for a light breakfast and coffee in the morning. We were in town for a funeral so we didn't have much time for sightseeing but the hotel provides a shuttle service to the Crystal City Metro or any of the other shops and restaurants there so it was very convenient for getting around the DC area.

Room Tip: We were on the 10th floor and the view was amazing!

There is nothing like a new, spacious hotel for a good conference. The mid-century mod style saturates every corner of the property, giving it a qwerty feeling that might not wear well for a long stay. Food is standard marriott fare and service on clever-looking menus. The meeting rooms are over size and convenient, which is why I have it a 4. Not convenient to the metro.

We are a new and modern hotel that embodies all the Renaissance brand has to offer. Where else can you enjoy a hot latte from our Illy's cafe while listening to the R LIfe live entertainment every Thursday evening? While our amenities may entice you to stay, it's our guest service that will keep you coming back, even if it is only for a short stay. We appreciate your review. Thank you.

I booked a weekend at the Renaissance as a weekend getaway to celebrate my wife's birthday. We live about 30 minutes away so it was really more to get a change of scenery and make my wife feel special. I have to say that the Renaissance really exceeded my expectations. After the initial booking I received an email confirming the reservation with the option to note any special requests. After making my requests, I promptly received an email from Dara who was absolutely wonderful to work with. Upon arrival, I ended up being checked in by Dara who remembered speaking with me via email and wished my wife a happy birthday. She also introduced us to her manager who also wished my wife a happy birthday without it being mentioned so it really made her feel special and made me look like a hero! After getting to the room it was clean, spacious and just our taste as far as decor. We would have liked to be on a higher floor but we still had decent views of the airport as requested. When I called down to the guest services desk they answered using my name which again was a nice personal touch for a relatively large hotel. Overall, I couldn't have asked for more at the price we paid and will certainly return to the Renaissance.

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor on the side facing the airport. Floors 8 or higher would offer the best views.

Stayed at this hotel for a dinner thrown by my husbands job...wonderful service! We had a suite that was beautiful. The room was clean, neat and well designed. Great view of the airport and the city also. Ordered room service and there weren't any problems with our food. The staff was great...this hotel is close to our home but it felt like we were actually away on a trip....I'd love to go back.
