Stayed here for 2 nights in mid March whilst on a business trip. The rooms are very small so don't attempt to swing any felines in here. The hotel is clean and tidy but just make sure you're prepared to tip the staff at breakfast otherwise you'll be confronted with dumb-founded stares. I didn't tip as I couldn't see why... More

Hi kleopapas, I'm happy to see that you enjoyed your stay. We are a boutique hotel with clean, modern, cozy rooms that do tend to run on the smaller side. As for the restaurant feedback, we will share this with the Food and Beverage staff. Thank you for your candid feedback. More

This hotel offers great customer service. Employees worked hard to ensure our stay was perfect/ comfortable. It's in the perfect location for shopping, dining and entertainment. Our only complain was paying an additional $6.30 parking tax per day in addition to paying $35 per day for parking. The additional fee was not disclosed till checkout. Parking cost is excessive....this does... More

Hi dxwcarty, Thank you for staying with us. I am glad to see that we took care of you during your stay. Friendly, accomodating service is how we separate ourselves from the other great hotels in Washington. As far as the parking fees are concerned, we are competitive with the other hotels in the area.

The Renaissance Dupont Circle is the best kept hotel secret in DC. It is in a great location, within short walks of Georgetown, Dupont Circle and George Washington University and also provides easy access to public transportation. The staff at the hotel is friendly, attentive and among the best I have ever experienced.

This hotel is in the heart of Washington D.C, and is very comfortable. The rooms are clean and spacious and the service is OK. Breakfast is not included. Walk distance of the most important monuments and museums of the city.

I had an overnight stay at this hotel for business. A higher quality Marriott property centrally located. Only a short walk from Foggy Bottom Metro stop, this is definitely more of a boutique style hotel with smaller, but well-appointed rooms. I arrived well before check in, but they front desk was able to find me a room just the same.... More

We stayed here just for one night because our other hotel was booked up on this particular day. We arrived late, but the place was still bustling, so we had no trouble getting help with luggage etc. The front desk staff was always helpful. The rooms were a decent size with plenty of room and outlets. Beds were comfy enough.... More

Pros: Great location if you're around the G'town - Foggy Bottom area. Lots of places to eat in walking distance. The hotel has a pretty cool set-up and is modern with a old-style hotel feel. Doesn't come off as cheap. The front desk guy, "Asa" was friendly about checking in and signing up for the reward program. The rooms aren't... More

Pros: Staff helpful and friendly. Room clean and decent size. Good location; took a 15 minute walk to the White House. Cons: Didn't appreciate being next to the elevator, but apparently that was all that was available, despite Marriott Rewards Gold level. (I think reservation desk was more concerned about getting me into larger room vs location of room.) No... More

Stayed for a conference - not a bad property, the rooms are clean, well lit and have aveda amenities but they are on the small side. The club lounge is a bit off on offerings - this property makes you pay for wine (where no other Renaissance does...) in the lounge and they asked for cash--no receipt! very odd. The... More
