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

Thank you so much for staying with us at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View. We are thrilled that you decided to give us a try based on the fact that we are a LEED Gold certified property. We are always looking for ways to reduce, resuse, and recycle everything we use here at the hotel. It's amazing how much we... 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

Thank you for sharing your review with other TripAdvisor users. We appreciate your feedback and are glad that you had a pleasant experience with us. I would like to share that there are several dining options within a few blocks (located on 23rd Street) and our complimentary shuttle makes a stop there. Hop on, hop off, you're good to go. 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

The Hotel is very clean and beautiful but is way to far to Dc if you don't have vehicle. The metro station is over a mile away.

Thank you for giving us a try.

I stayed here for a business conference, and was really impressed with the facilities, food, and the service. The meeting rooms are well-equipped and comfortable. The doors of several rooms open onto a very nice outdoor terrace, which provided great breakout space as well as a nice way to quickly get some fresh air and check messages on a break.... More

Excellent proximity to metro to get to DC (3 stops to Mall). We stayed in a standard room (2 queen beds) with 2 adults and 3 kids (under the age 4). It was comfortable, clean and very relaxing.

PROS: Absolutely amazing. Very modern, clean, and crisp. Great location to airport and metro. Felt like I was in another world, the designs and colors made it feel like a hotel from a sci-fi movie; I was ready for a robot to greet me. CONS: None that I could see.
