Shuttle takes you right to the metro station, great restaurants on 23 rd- walk or shuttle there - the staff is VERY nice too ! Can't really see the Capitol though ! The little coffee place in the lobby is great and I had an exceptional stake dinner in their cafe at 11:00 p.m.!!!!!!!

DH and I were invited to a function at The White House and booked a vacation package through Jet Blue. We choose The Renaissance - Capital View, which offered free shuttle service not only from the airport but also for the Crystal City area. Marriott has a number of properties in Crystal City so there was no wait for the... More

I truly appreciate all of the wonderful comments you made about our hotel. Thank you so much for mentioning all of the delicious offerings available at our SOCCi restaurant.

I recently reserved three rooms at the Renaissance Arlington and chose se hotel due to the complimentary shuttle service from DCA. The staff was professional and attentive, we were able to check in as early as 10:00 A.M. and my special requests (even though they were many) were honored. On Saturday night the pool was invaded with kids so we... More

I wasn't in a room with a view of the capitol building but I could see the Capital city. This hotel is clean and modern. Shuttle to/from DCA and metro runs every 20 minutes most of the day. Staff is friendly and helpful. There aren't a lot of attractions immediately surrounding the hotel but the shuttle will get you into... More

I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. Perhaps the next time you come, you'll be able to take one of our complimentary bicycles out for a ride. There is a fantastic trail nearby and it would be another way you can take in the sights. Thank you so much for your review. More

Everything about this hotel is perfect! From the beginning till the end. We found a great deal @ $279 for 3 nights. They do charge $26 for parking per night but its worth it. Would happily recommend to anyone.

First off, the hotel has a LEED® Gold certification, and its environmentally friendly policies prompted my stay; both the interior and exterior designs are extremely avant-garde and trendy, creating a really posh but also warm, friendly atmosphere. The hotel is actually quite far from DC - fifteen to twenty minute drive without traffic or some fifteen minutes via metro. There... More

We stayed 7 nights on the 7th floor with a gorgeous view of the Potomac, Metro rail, Amtrak and planes departing from Reagan airport and this included a distant view of the Capitol dome. It was quiet and so clean! The only thing that was a slight disappointment was the dining choices are limited. On site dining is very expensive... More

I'm not sure why other people are complaining about the location and shuttle service. It is the PERFECT location for a DC trip and the shuttle service was very friendly and convenient, and usually on time. Then again, we was there for fourth of July weekend and I'm sure more people were using the shuttle because of an influx of... More
