I stayed at the Renaissance due to the proximity to the Washington Convention Center. It is right across the street and very convenient. Check in process was smooth. Overall room accommodation was great. Bed was extremely comfortable. One glitch related to room service. Hung my order on my door with 6-615AM delivery. As of 630AM the breakfast was not delivered.... More

From head to toes, this is a beautiful hotel. The staff was exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly. We attended a large conference that took over most DC hotels in and around the Walter E Washington Conference Center. The Renaissance packed them in but it didn't feel crowded and the staff made you feel like you were their only customer. Walking distance... More

I have, in course of my travels on business, been to this hotel many times, and it never fails to keep me satisfied. Spacious rooms, friendly staff and other great amenities, make this the place to stay in downtown DC.

I have stayed at this hotel quite a few times. It is okay; not bad, but not great. The aging is evident and it could use some updates. I stayed on the side with 2 elevators - 1 was not working most of the time and the other didn't work part of the time. I had to call several times... More

This is my second visit to the Renaissance hotel for a conference and it's another great experience. The rooms are beautifully decorated and maintained with nice conference facilities as well. The hotel is in a prime, central location and the customer service is great.

Meal catered for group was high priced and they did not keep the coffee or other hot beverages filled up. Set up was not the best. I would suggest other options for that. Very clean room - quiet - good help for luggage - gift shop has maps of DC for reasonable price.

Ok it was a good hotel I spent 6 nights. Service was good. But it needs some up grades. For the price restaurant was awlful. Always standing in line. Breakfast very expensive for offerings. Has Starbucks but it always had line and waiting. For price should offer at least continental break. Cleaning service was very good. Parking guys great. Rooms... More

I spent 5 nights for a combination college visits with my daughter and conference attendance at the hotel. Service at check-in wonderful, at the bell/concierge desk surly, at the restaurant wonderful, at the bar surly and curt for 2 nights and wonderful for 1 night. Health club excellent. I expect more consistency for ~$300 per night. As a female traveling... More

I stay here once or twice a year on business, and every stay has been superior. The rooms are nicely set up, not spa-like of course, but very comfortable nevertheless. Extremely nice bedding, but which I mean the beds themselves. The HVAC works well and one can run the fan full time which both aids air circulation and avoids the... More

After a long day of travel and some torture from the airlines I was beat. I arrived at the Renaissance pretty worn out. In the past I have loved their service so my expectations were high. Matthew greeted me from the registration desk. He knew I was worn out and was super accommodating and fast. He had me registered on... More
