I stayed 2 nights in October. The room was very nice. Comfy bed and clean. Shuttles from Reagan airport and to the metro come about every 20 minutes. Nice extensive exercise room. I didnt eat there, but this hotel is within walking distance to some very nice food choices near the Crystal city Mall.

I stayed 2 nights at this hotel which were work related. The rooms were clean and spacious although it was annoying to have very few HD channels. I did not eat at the hotel b/c the breakfast was $18 which I found a bit pricey) and the food they provided for our conference left much to be desired *but I... More

The folks here were very helpful and the food is great. The rooms are very nice, but my favorite part were all the balcony areas in the conference area. I would highly recommend this hotel for business and leisure travel.

Although this hotel is a few blocks away from many of the restaurants and other hotels near the airport, it is worth walking a few blocks to dinner. Many of the other hotels in the area are showing their age. The Renaissance looks and feels new and modern, from the lobby to the hallways to the room. The location is... More

A modern conference center and hotel in crystal city that is appealing to the eye at first but the experience was far from acceptable for the hotel class it claims to be. My wife and I stayed there for a conference that was held there. We arrived very early (7:30am) and checked to see if we could check in, by... More

I had a quick overnight business trip, and I needed to find somewhere in DC. Having been here before with my family, I found it was conveniently enough located to my drive that I could make it work. I'm glad I did again. Staff were friendly, and the experience is fantastic. As an architect who enjoys modern design, the hotel... More

I just stayed one night here on my way to another city and being so near to DCA, it was the perfect choice.

Earlier this month, I traveled with several business associates to the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel in Arlington. It was a very upscale looking spot and very close to Reagan National Airport. Free shuttle bus service both ways from the airport went very well. Room was nicely done, but fairly small. As I was there for a conference, I didn't... More

Was given the wrong kind of room when first checked in. They changed my room right away. Just as others have said, the train is loud, you can hear others through the ventilation system sometimes, and the restaurant food isn't that good. Kind of an expensive place to stay in the area. very nice staff though. A nice walking distance... More
