Six months ago, my husband stayed here, and raved about the service and ambiance. In August we stayed for three days so that we could visit friends and family and explore some of the landmarks in the area. It was easy to use the elevators, and the valet service helped to dismantle the scooters and put them in the car.... More

Great hotel with staff that cannot do enough for you. Everything was clean and tidy and the room we were in was perfect. My only criticism is having to pay for the wi-fi in the room ($12 a day - far too much) although it is free in the lobby. Also free shuttle buses to the Crystal city metro station... More

Stayed here on our way back to CT from Myrtle Beach. I could not have asked for more. The hotel was beautiful, clean, had friendly staff, room service until 11pm with food that was fresh and valet parking. We were located on the 9th floor with a city view - room was spotless, water pressure for shower was strong and... More

I stayed here based on the proximity to DCA and the shuttle. My trip started off poorly since the pickup shuttle from DCA was 30 minutes late from the time they promised. It caused me to rush to me meeting, but the hotel itself made up for it. It is modern, clean, and leaves a great impression overall from the... More

Our flight was cancelled so my son and I stayed one night there. Unfortunately most of the hotel had been booked by people from India for a wedding, so they were slammed. We went downstairs to grab a bite to eat (we were their only customers) and it took a VERY long time for anyone to acknowledge our presence. We... More

Please know that I will follow up with our restaurant staff to ensure that our service meets our guests... More

Just returned from three days here. Great spot to be near the airport, the free shuttle to/from the airport and to the metro(less than one mile) was great. Used Marriott's mobile app to pre check in and my room key was waiting, had just a quick stop at the front desk-loved it. Lobby area great, modern, varied seating, open, a... More

There's something about the Renaissance hotel that made me feel like I was in Europe - not a charming and quaint European hotel but a modern and trendy one. Maybe it's the open lobby with the business center or the Illy cafe or the Italian restaurant or just the overall colors and design. But whatever it is, the lobby is... More

I stayed here for 5 days for a work convention. I really don't have anything bad to say.. The rooms were clean and nice. I had a room on the 12th floor with a view, the view was basically of the airport and the train tracks but way off to the left in the far distance you could see the... More

My husband and I spent last weekend at this hotel. It was last minute for a wedding but what a wonderful surprise! We were greeted with smiles and great customer service at the beginning of our arrival! The food was wonderful! They even offered complimentary bikes for a ride into Washington!
