“very nice!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is amazing. The rooms are very clean. There is a spacious parking area which you pay 24 $ a day. But if you are a picky hotel customer: no smell, no bugs, no surprises. THe sheets and towels are really clean. I definitely recommend this hotel.

My husband & I had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful, new hotel when we visited Washington, D.C. last Christmas. Because I am disabled with special needs, I did extensive research to find a property that could accommodate Them. The Renaissance Arlington Capital View fit the bill perfectly. I made my reservation directly with the hotel so I could be certain it provided everything I needed and wanted. The hotel's Manager Kieran could not have been nicer or more understanding. She assured me all would be taken care of. AND IT WAS!!! From the moment we checked into this sleek, modern, "green" hotel, we were warmly welcomed and made to feel right at home. We were delighted to learn that the we had been given a corner room on an upper floor which afforded us a beautiful view of the Potomac River and parts of Washington, D.C. (beautiful at night!) Our well designed room and bathroom were spacious, immaculate and fully accessible to a someone in a wheel chair. Every detail had been carefully planned and executed. Initially, we were going to stay there for just one night, then move on to a different hotel. Those plans changed because we fell in love with the hotel and its great staff. Arrangements were made to stay there again the night before our return home. Again, we were treated with the same courtesy as before. We were welcomed by name and again all of our expectations were exceeded. We used the hotel's courtesy shuttle to take us to Reagan Airport, about 1/2 mile away. The shuttle arrived on time and everyone was so very helpful in transferring me and my chair into and out of the shuttle---not an easy task. This hotel far surpasses any other near the airport. I know this because I "did my homework" then experienced it first hand. The next time we travel to D.C., there is no doubt we'll return to the warmth and friendliness of the Renaissance Arlington Capital View.

I had the pleasure of staying at this property while attending a conference on-site. The rooms are well appointed, comfortable, and relaxing. The lobby was great for hanging out and networking. The conference space was beautiful and comfortable as well.

The hotel was clean and comfortable. Made the reservation almost two months in advance and they oversold the double bed rooms. We ended up with a king and TWO rollaways! Not what we expected for a two night stay. The manager did comp the parking which was about $70.00 for a two day stay. We still enjoyed our stay. There are lots of good places to eat near the hotel in walking distance.

Room Tip: If you require a double bed room, make sure it is in your instructions. The rooms are only average s...

We went to this hotel for a school trip and we had not arrived until 9:30, we were a pretty large group; 4 charter busses, and were exausted from the trip and all the sight seeing. My group was extatic to see our room as it had a large fridge so we could keep our drinks cold for the next day, the room was exceptionally clean, the bathroom was really nice and spacious and the bed was more comfy than my bed at home and the reading light attached to the headboard was a nice touch. The rooms were modern and excellent. The next morning, we were down for breakfast a we had a nice buffet style with lots of choices and the food was good too. The decor was by far my favorite thing however, it was classy, modern and fun to look at. This is the definitely the place to stay.

Beautifully renovated Marriott property by DCA airport. Spacious rooms all newly renovated. Great staff. Meeting facilities nice, easily accessible. Good value. Restaurants great too. Near Metro for access to DC. Only drawback is not being in the District.

Thank you for choosing the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel for your recent stay. We are delighted that you enjoyed your experience at the hotel. We are actually a new hotel, built from the ground up. We opened in 2011, but have not gone through renovations yet. We work very hard to keep everything looking and feeling as fresh as when we opened and, judging from your review, we are doing a good job. Please recommend us to family and friends when possible. It would be appreciated.

While the standard of the hotel rooms and other facilities were of a normal global standard; clean, well equipped and decorated to the latest fashion, (whatever that is), what impressed me was the unflinchingly friendly service.

Let me explain. The place was busy - full rooms and about 3 conferences running at the same time (including the one I was attending), yet nothing was too much trouble for the staff who made sure all aspects of the stay went to plan. The bar staff were particularly efficient during some pretty demanding periods.

My one negative comment is that the lifts (elevators) clearly couldn’t cope with when the guest numbers approached maximum. 10 minute wait became the norm.

Thank you for submitting a review to TripAdvisor. I am glad you mentioned our friendly staff service. They really do care about our guests! I will share your comments with them. I'm sure it will make their day. Occasionally, we will receive a large number of guests who will arrive at the hotel at the same time and it can create some competition for our elevators, but we will do everything we can to make the process as smooth as possible. We understand that guests who have been traveling all day just want to get to their rooms to unwind and relax and get back downstairs to the lobby to get a drink at our bar or a bite to eat at our restaurant. We hope to see you back at the Renaissance Arlington Capital soon.
