“Lovely hotel in a great location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

I put my parents up on points at this property last week. They were treated splendidly. The front desk staff was very friendly and polite, the room was clean and had nice furnishings.

Only thing I would change are the hours of Sunday Breakfast. Ending at 9:30 is a little early on a weekend day, so I have sent a note to Marriott about that change. That said, the selection and the quality of the food were excellent and the breakfast staff was pleasant and helpful.

This property is perfect for being close to Washington, but not spending a fortune on a place to sleep and park your car. Parking was ample and easily accessible with elevator to lobby. Our room was a city view studio with king bed. Plenty of room for a couple. Room was extremely clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful with information about getting around the DC area. The breakfast is more than cereal and yogurt. It is hot food prepared in a full service kitchen. The staff keeps the buffet clean and very well stocked. And it's free! We felt like the breakfast made up for the cost of parking a day which was $22. This location is new and connected to a new Renaissance Hotel. You have the convenience of a fabulous gym and a very nice restaurant without going outside. This came in handy during our stay because of weather due to Hurricane Irene that passed close to DC. Location is closest to Crystal City Metro and the hotel runs a shuttle every 20 minutes. Pick-up from metro is the only complaint. It doesn't run regularly for pick-up. If you don't mind walking it's a 15 minute walk. Very nice area to walk or run. Overall it is a great place to stay for work or vacation. The whole staff from managers to housekeeping is the best. We will be back!!!

Room Tip: City View overlooks Reagan Airport and Potomac. Never hear any planes though. Loved the views!

So I travel alot for work to the DC area. I always stay at Residence Inn's because I like to keep life as normal as possible and having my regular food and workout options keeps me less stressed. This facility is back-to-back with the Marriott Renaissance Inn and shares a very large fitness center, complete with a pool. The staff are very friendly, the managers are very attentive. I usually stay the 3rd week of every month at the Residence Inn in Alexandria (Carlyle) which I LOVE!! However, this new facility partners on some fitness options with the Renaissance - including the use of bikes from the hotel bike stable. I had the best bike ride along the Potomac! It was great! Quite a nice way to finish a day after being in a meeting room all day!! Jeremy (Residence Inn) and Kate (Renaissance Inn), you all have got it together! David at the R.I. front desk was able to get me an early check-in so I didn't have to do a conference call from my car. Overall, a great experience!! Keep it up you guys! I just switched my reservation for next week over to your hotel (sorry Meagan and Myra!! You guys need to get some bikes!!).

Room Tip: Residence Inn...more for biz travellers. Renaissance Inn...more for families.

The hotel is less than a year old. Rooms are outfitted very nicely. Full kitchen includes dishwasher, a countertop cooking surface and a full fridge.
The morning breakfast buffet is several notches above many hotels offering something similar. The evening receptions (only Mon-Wed) have real food, not just defrosted appetizers from Sam's Club , and free beer and wine.
The down side to this property for me is its location, especially if you don't have your own transportation. They have a shuttle to Crystal city Metro station every 20 mins. There are no other decent restaurants within a comfortable walking distance. There is a shopping center with a supermarket but it's about a 15-20 minute walk to the South across a bridge.
This wouldn't be a hotel I would recommend as a base for tourists visiting D.C. but would be a good choice if the rates were right for a stopover going to or from DCA airport.

I had a wonderful hotel expereince, after the first hour.

It was confusing to park (shared parking with other hotels), but plenty of space (but too expensive.)

Checkin was easy and I had a nice room on the top floor. Room was well designed, although smaller than other cities (but good for DC.) Breakfast was good and dinner was provided on Mon/Tue/Wed.

Gym was good with plenty of treadmills. Pool looked small and no hot tub.

If I cannot find a hotel closer to the pentagon, I would stay here (except in the winter.)

Everything was great at this new Residence Inn. The staff was friendly, towels were soft and the bed was comfortable. The shuttle runs back and forth to the Metro stop every 20 minutes but you might have to wait longer if there are enough people ahead of you to fill it up. I was totally surprised to see a lifeguard on duty at the pool and the fitness center was very nice. The breakfast was similar to what you might see at a restaurant's breakfast buffet - hot items, waffle makers, oatmeal and great muffins. You can park in the underground garage for a fee or take your chances in a parking lot of unknown ownership across the street. Our room was perfectly quiet, didn't hear anyone ever. I definitely recommend a stay here.

We stayed at the Residence rather than the Renaissance. We prefer the larger space and the kitchen facilities ... not that we cook but it's nice to have a microwave, a frig, utensils, etc. for that late night snack or breakfast in the morning. There is a breakfast buffet included with the room. The room was great, everything was working just fine, bed comfortable. Every single staff person we met was friendly and very helpful. We stayed the night before the DC Triathlon and I needed a black waterproof marker to redo my numbering. The front desk gladly found for me and gave it to me, telling me to just bring it back in the morning! Will definitely stay here again!
