Shuttle from airport was a very short wait. Extremely friendly check in. We were upgraded to a suite and yes, we could see the capital. Out one window, we could see the Washington monument. Went directly to the lounge. It overlooks the Potomac and the capitol too. We got there just as the evening snacks were being taken up. The... More

I stayed at the Renaissance for a conference and once I walked in the door, I had no reason to venture out until it was time to fly home. The staff was very friendly. The room was modern, large and clean. The food at the restaurant was very good. I had the Culpepper pizza and Caprese salad and both were... More

Crystal City is basically a hotel/office park, with a few chain restaurants thrown in. Not a pleasant place to stay, and in the case of this hotel, the metro is almost a mile away. Given all that, this is a nice hotel. Good rooms, great beds, and a very nice restaurant, Socci (although it isn't open all day, and doesn't... More

Every single person on the hotel staff was way beyond pleasant. Front desk, restaurant, front door, coffee shop, housekeeping, everyone. And this went beyond smiles. Bellmen that happened to be walking through the lobby when I was pausing by the elevators made a point of coming by to ask about my day. The doormen invariably made pleasant small talk when... More

Hands down the cleanest, friendliest, best hotel around. It is beautiful. When I tell you that it is clean..I am somewhat OCD and I have NO issues here.. The staff go out of their way to accommodate you in every way. I can't imagine staying anywhere else!!!

Hotel offers gold members executive Lounge access which had a very good breakfast and evening snacks. Room was comfortable and noise from adjacent railroad tracks was no a problem as we quickly adjusted to that. Ventilation system operated well but it blew right on part of the bed. Hotel designers could easily avoid this in their design. The elevators are... More

This hotel is a gem for a Washington D.C. stay! It is just outside the hustle and bustle of the city, but with quick and convenient access. Due to my Marriott Rewards affiliation, we were upgraded to a 1-bedroom suite that was very impressive! The view of the capital from our room was impressive. This hotel has a convenient attached...

Hotel is nicely situated with great restaurants and metro within walking distance. Only issue was that my room was in the same side as the train tracks which seemed to run at all hours and could be noisy. Front desk was very very helpful and answered all of my questions professionally. I would recommend this hotel to anyone flying out... More

My husband and I only stayed here one night for a plane layover, but the service we received was top-notch. The front desk was very friendly and accommodating (our toothpaste was in luggage somewhere). We arrived later than the airport shuttle, so our cab fare was reimbursed. The lobby looked trendy, and the restaurant looked nice. Our room got upgraded,... More
