The hotel itself is awesome! The rooms are nice and the location is amazing! However, the noise level is insane! The walls are paper thin and the room doors are so heavy that they slam. No peaceful rest in these rooms!!

I stayed here July/August 2014 for a special convention of Jehovah's Witnesses. The hotel staff was VERY patient, accomadating and helpful. The man at the concierge desk was very helpful in helping us find a nice place to eat. He was very knowledgeable of the area which allowed him to give us tons of options and he called the restaurant... More

Clean rooms. Impeccable service. Nice bathrooms. Large place. My only qualm is that I did not stay here longer than one night! The service really made this hotel shine, and I held a conference at this same location, as well. The event services did not even know that I was guest, and they still treated me with the same courtesy... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights for a conference being held at the hotel. The front desk staff on check-in was super helpful. Our party had to re-shuffle our reservations a bit, and Sean was right on it. As it turns out, my room wasn't ready for a little while, so I went for a walk. They called... More

I enjoyed my four night stay at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Washington DC. Our room was comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean, all staff went out of their way to be helpful and service was excellent. The lobby area is a comfortable place to meet and the President's Sports Bar has a good menu. I wouldn't say that this hotel... More

Large hotel with plenty of business and interesting, complicated-ish layout. But very little wait for elevators, and courteous front desk folks both arriving and departing. 5th floor room overlooking a handsome Carnegie library got a little noise - hey, this is a big city, you're going to have sirens - but not bad at all. Surprisingly small bathroom and indeed... More

Stayed three nights. The room was very nice. Bed linens were luxury class, pillows also. TV good, bath was large, shower excellent (no tub... and when is the last time anyone ever took a tub bath at a hotel? never). Room was clean and fresh. Lobby was vibrant and always seemed busy with food offerings and cocktails. Entertainment was a... More

We had a ball staying here. The location is ideal for hanging out. During the day you close to shopping and restaurants. The night life is wonderful. You can walk to local bars/clubs and there's the hotel lounge/bar. You will totally enjoy.

Check in was good. Agent actually got out from behind the counter to show me where the elevator is. Excellent service, clean room, great lobby and newer rooms. Courteous. Also a good location. Towels could be softer. Yet, sheets and pillows soft. Bed was firm. Very good experience.

I just checked in and really, really want to turn around and walk out the door. I'm here for two nights at a conference. My pete peeve not just here, but at all hotels is the gauntlet of hotel workers you have to run at the front desk, I don't need you to greet me, engage me in small talk,... More
