The hotel is one of the Marriot chain and as such a visitor has the right to have some expectations with regards room quality, staff and food. Well they did well with this one. The rooms are a good size, well appointed and clean with a comfortable bed. Everything worked however maybe some goodies in the bar fridge would be... More

Incredible staff. Hotel in great location. Has everything you could ever need. My issue was being charged $12.95 plus tax for internet, when I was given a card (photo attached) that to me how "to access your complimentary internet". The part that says "this will not appear on your bill" is hilarious.

Spent two nights recently three moms and three 1-year-olds... we loved everything about your hotel... Room was better than described...lobby was a much needed oasis of calm in a busy bustling city... Everything was clean and modern. Your staff could not have been more friendly if they had known us before we arrived... Only downside was that Starbucks wasn't open... More

Stayed for business, service was great overall. The room was very clean and comfortable. Hotel lobby has a nice lounge / bar area and a Starbucks. The gym is nice and well-equipped. Location is also great. Enjoyable stay!

The Renaissance Downtown Hotel was an amazing experience, I stayed for a couple of nights on Business and it couldn't have gone any better. Starting with the check-in process Eduardo was very professional, he was able to answer every question I asked about the hotel. Next, Richard from the bell stand assisted me with my luggage. Richard was very professional,... More

This is probably the most beautiful Marriott facility next to the Gaylord at the National Harbor in Maryland. It is centrally located to the museums, Chinatown and a myriad of restaurants. My family and I upgraded to a room with additional space. The square footage was amazing with ample room for all. The décor was modern and appeared newer. We... More

We stayed for a long weekend to visit all the sights and enjoy restaurant week. The hotel itself is very clean and quiet but we choose it because of how close to Chinatown and other great places to eat and drink.

The seating/lounge areas around the corner from the meeting room was awesome. I just wanted to sit there and admire the decor. Everything felt modern and vintage at the same time. Not sure how that is even possible but I took a bunch of pictures and am going to try and replicate it in my home. The amenities in the... More

Stayed at Renaissance for the first time - and probably the last. Booked Air & Hotel through Marriott website and prepaid for stay. At check-in, was offered an upgrade for $50/night (usual $100/night) as I am a Silver Elite Marriott member. At checkout, clerk claims they have no record of prepay. I showed them a printed invoice. Hispanic clerk at... More

Loved the hotel and staff. My luggage was lost by the airlines and the staff was on top of it to ensure that as soon it arrived it was brought to my room. Great clean rooms with plenty of space for a large city.
