“A hotel worthy of five stars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

It is not often I rate a hotel with five (5) stars but this one deserves it. I stayed there overnight for a morning flight out of Reagan National Airport and it was wonderful. The reception staff member was extremely professional, polite and went out of her way to make me feel like a special guest. The hotel lobby is beautifully appointed and the rooms were very nice and clean. I especially enjoyed the Executive lounge; the food was delicious and the airport/capital view was great. Every member of the staff was pleasant; kudos to the management of this hotel. One important point is the nearest Metro train stop is Crystal City which is about a 15 minute walk, however the hotel shuttle van runs every 20 minutes and includes a stop at the Metro station and the airport.

Room Tip: Try to choose airport view side of the hotel, otherwise you'll just see buildings on the other s...

In the heat of the DC summer and in the middle of a move, it was sheer bliss to stay here. The staff was incredible, the beds were heaven and the executive lounge was my favorite! Great gym and pool. Once again, staying at the Marriott is great, they know how to treat their loyal customers!

My family and I visited DC for Christmas 2012. I am so glad we chose this hotel!
Pros:
- Helpful front desk staff - always courteous
- Easy check in: we were greeted at door and check in was a breeze
- Rooms: beautiful, new rooms with nice TV's and bathrooms - all clean and updated
- Location: hotel is a 5-7 min drive from DC - hotel also offers a shuttle to airport/metro
- Club Lounge: this was the biggest surprise - we were upgraded so we had free access to the club lounge on the 14th floor - free deluxe breakfast, heavy h'orderves, and dessert! The staff in the club lounge were ALWAYS courteous and put the guests FIRST!

Cons:
- parking is over 20 a day but parking garage is easily accessible
- finding the hotel for the first time: there are a couple turns that the GPS left out when we first arrived - signs are not located in a location that first time guests can find easily

Overall - VERY PLEASED with this hotel. Its staff and amenities are wonderful for families visiting DC.

Room Tip: request a room on the airport side - views of airport and of capital are great on the high floors.

This hotel is only one and a half years old and it is funky !!! Very modern in design (maybe too much so for some) but very nicely done. It is connected to the Marriott Residence Inn and is very well located.
The facilities are very comprehensive with a particularly fine gym.
I thought the service was excellent, particularly the gentleman who checked us in. This is what hotel service should be like.
Well done Marriott/Renaissance. I hope to be back to enjoy your lovely hotel and attentive service,

Service was impeccable, beds delightful, gorgeous view, and amenities galore. We stayed one night on Christmas eve, choosing this location because of its proximity to the airport and a planned visit to Arlington National Cemetery. Cant wait to come back for a longer stay!

Had a great experience. I was able to see a lot of history of the area while wrapped in modern comforts. The exc. Sou Chef was excellent and very talented as was the whole Food and Beverage team. The service offered by this hotel is top notch. I can't say this much but the taxi/ limo service in the area is the best I've seen. Great experience all around.

I hosted a Christmas gathering here at the Renaissance Capital View. The dining room staff was extremely accommodating, allowing us to meet in the private dining room for a quiet round-table brunch. David, at the front desk, answered many travel logistic questions and was personable and professional. The rooms here are mid-sized, yet elegant. Quite, too. An update. A new chef at the helm! He added his grandmother's handmade meatball recipe to the menu. They are great! A good location if you do not want to be in the heart of Washington, DC and are looking for modern elegance. They do have shuttle service which is helpful.

Room Tip: If a member of the Marriott Rewards Program, ask for the top floor of the hotel.
