This is a great hotel in a great location if you don't mind being away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I personally enjoyed the quiet area with access to a lot of great restaurants and a short walk from the metro. It was about a 25 min metro ride into DC or a 10 min car ride without traffic. We received a room upgrade upon check-in and were offered a room with a large separate living area and the bedroom was spacious and decorated in a way that you felt you were right at home. The bathroom was also a decent size and the hotel offered great toiletries. The hotel staff were extremely attentive and kind and their hospitality was much appreciated. Everyone at the front desk and at valet were very hospitable! Loved the complimentary bikes and definitely recommend taking advantage of this amenity and riding into nearby Alexandria, which is a very charming, nearby town. The hotel also offered an incredible gym that was very large and offered plenty of high end machines and weights. The free earphones were also a nice touch for forgetful people such as myself who lose all motivation when they forget their earphones. There's also a small, but clean pool that leads to a comfortable, outdoor terrace. There is also a restaurant in the lobby and a lively, center bar that gets busy at night. I'm a big fan of Renaissance Hotels in general and this one is no exception. I'll definitely be returning!
