My husband and I stayed here for a week over the July 4th holiday because the hotel held a conference we were attending during the last half of our stay. Almost all staff members we encountered were very friendly. They accommodated my request for a room away from the street, and it was very quiet on the 12th floor. The... More

My wife and I spent four days at this hotel for our son's wedding. The hotel is very convenient to Chinatown and the Verizon Center area. The rooms are very nice, with a large television and newer furniture. Very good housekeeping staff, and the staff overall was very friendly and helpful. We had what sounded to be a domestic situation... More

I spent five nights at the Renaissance Washington DC Hotel, and would be happy to stay again. The location is great, not just for things around the hotel but for anywhere accessible by the Metro system (there are two stations within a very short walk). My room was comfortable and surprisingly quiet for a downtown hotel (not much you can... More

We stayed at the Renaissance Washington DC Hotel for two nights in late June. Our niece was being married in a church nearby with the reception across the street from the hotel at the Carneige Library. The hotel was centrally located for what we needed within the city. We walked to the White House one evening and visited the National... More

In all honesty, there were highs and lows during my week long stay at the Renaissance in downtown DC. Highs: near Chinatown, close to lots of stores and restaurants, great bed, quiet hotel, modern decor. Lows: Starbucks line is ridiculously long with conference-goers, internet and wifi reception were just horrible - I couldn't get any service in my room, and... More

We came for a Valentine's trip, and the timing was pretty bad- Washington sort of ground to a halt with the unfortunate snowfall it was hit with. We came in a day early, and had made reservations at the Renaissance for 3 nights through Priceline, we called to see if they would honor the rate for an extra night, but... More

This is a tremendous hotel with a perfect location amidst the heart of DC, surrounded by a wide array of restaurants, and within 2 blocks of the metro. The lobby is fresh and active, the President's Bar a great place to watch the World Cup, in-room dining a treat, and my room was incredibly comfortable (with a wonderful shower). I... More

Was here for a week long conference, the hotel is conveniently located close to chinatown and the eating places around the convention center and gallery place. The metro lines are about 2 blocks away with lots of choices for nightlife and restaurants. The hotel itself is well established with comfortable and clean rooms, attentive and helpful staff. The meeting rooms... More

Traveled for business and spent much of the time in different conference rooms. However this also pertains to the hotel rooms as well. Temperature control is a big issue within the building. In the hotel rooms it was difficult achieve temperature regulation. The system goes on and off frequently and no matter how I tried to adjust the controls the... More

What a beautiful hotel! Welcoming, modern hotel. Friendly staff (even at 12:30 am!), great room and exceptional linen! Loved the Washington details throughout the room, President's signatures in the closet and pictures in the bathroom were a lot of fun. The sliding door with large full length mirror was fantastic! Gave us so much room to get ready, really appreciated... More
