I chose this hotel after about a month of endless internet searches and reading many a TripAdvisor Review. I Chose to go with the one hotel I could find with the most consistently positive Reviews. I booked a one bedroom Suite for Spring Break in DC with our 12 year old son. Upon arrival, we were greeted with enthusiasm and were assured we had a beautiful river view from our 11th floor corner room. Indeed, the view was great; my son was thrilled with the fact that he could watch the planes land and take off from Reagan. Our room ended up being a Studio Suite rather than the one bedroom I booked. A few concessions were graciously made by the management which ended up being an acceptable band-aid for the room mix-up. The property is only 2 years old so everything was new, clean, comtemporary, and comfortable. The King Size bed was, in my opinion, very comfortable. The Sleeper Sofa mattress was...well, a typical sleeper sofa mattress...okay for a child. It was nice to have the convenience of a full size fridge, stove top, microwave (free popcorn provided), and dishwasher. The daily breakfast buffet is abundant and we chose to take advantage most of the days along with the Mon-Tue-Wed evening dinners. The dinners are just okay but the 2 glasses of wine or beer that are included are a nice touch. Now...for the shuttle service...Really fantastic...loved using the DCmarriottshuttle.com application so we knew exactly when the shuttle would arrive. What a wonderful employee they have in "Dean"...lovely gentleman who drove the shuttle most nights. Service to the Metro Station was great and the shuttle runs up until 11pm so we had plenty of time to get our sightseeing in and then back to the hotel for dinner or a shuttle to the restaurants off 23rd Street (Mortons, Ted's Montanta Grill, The Good Stuff (Great Burger Place), Noodles & Co., Starbucks, Caribou Coffee, etc.) We did enjoy dinner one night in the adjoining Renassance Hotel (Socci/Italian/Delicious) and if you are a coffee person, "Illy" Espressemente is also located in The Renaissance. The room in which we stayed was very peaceful (1151)...it is located in the corner, at the furthest point from the elevators. Although, in close proximity to the airport, no disturbance from aircraft....occassionally, you may hear a train. No loud guests in the hallways, slamming doors, etc. Overall, I would choose to stay here again...it was an excellent value and the staff was outstanding.
