“Superb hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

Stayed at this hotel for a dinner thrown by my husbands job...wonderful service! We had a suite that was beautiful. The room was clean, neat and well designed. Great view of the airport and the city also. Ordered room service and there weren't any problems with our food. The staff was great...this hotel is close to our home but it felt like we were actually away on a trip....I'd love to go back.

Just a perfect stay from arrival to departure. Only one night, but staff and facility are top notch. Very convenient to DCA. Lots of restaurants just a short walk away. We valet parked as it was just a few bucks more than self park. Concierge Lounge is very good if you are a gold or platinum elite.

Thank you for letting us serve you with a "flawless night" at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel. Perhaps you will be able to visit again and stay a little bit longer so you can check out our Fitness Center or relax and enjoy the great entertainment that is featured every Thursday evening in the lobby lounge. We hope to see you soon. Thank you for the review.

Went for a conference at the Hyatt, but stayed here at the Renaissance, and was rewarded for a good decision. Room was very comfortable, with a "ottoman" included, which is a dying feature among most hotels. Was able to read my book a couple of nights with my feet up. Very modern shower vice bathtub, with glass doors and nice marble like tile. The fitness center is probably the best in industry and the main reason why I keep coming back to this hotel. Incredible amount of cardio machines and large amount of weight machines. Great workout every morning. The hotel restaurant (Socci) was fantastic. I took my co-workers out of the Hyatt each day for lunch and over to this hotel. Used the shuttle service one night for dinner. Worked great.

I had a room on the "capital view" side and enjoyed watching the planes at National Airport -- not to mention the Metro trains, the river, the cars on their curving roadways, the bicyclists on their paths. This was a great room for lovers of "the romance of transportation." Even we, however, should choose a high floor, because the main tracks to Norfolk run very close to the hotel and there are commuter and CSX trains going by frequently. More romantic if you're looking down at them than if you're looking out at them. My room was beautiful and well-kept.

Next time I will understand better how the free airport/Metro shuttle works. There is one loop route to the airport and another to the Metro. They go every 20 minutes. I would keep alert for shuttle arrival and departure, because on my visit they were not always announced and it was easy to miss a trip. The rides take about 10-15 minutes to their destinations, depending on traffic. The drivers are friendly and professional and drive safely.

The review of the Renaissance Arlington "Capital View" was so eloquently stated as the place for lovers of "the romance of transportation". Oddly enough, we have a number of repeat guests that request a particular room just for the type of transportation view they can get from the window. It would seem that you have already decided that the view you would prefer would be that seen from a higher floor window...looking down. I never tire of looking at the hustle and bustle of the city that's taking place just outside of the hotel and wondering where people are going to or coming from and what their story is. Thank you for sharing your comments with us.

Upscale design - nicer than other Renaissance places I've stayed - 5 minutes from National. Rooms are large and nicely appointed. They also have a good chef turning out really good food. Free airport shuttle is a nice touch.

Beautiful hotel, clean fresh, modern decor, great amenities, gym, indoor pool, terrace with view!
The staff is excellent, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, very well trained in hospitality. Shuttle took us to metro station and pickup every 1/2 hour. Great location with a view of DC Capital especially from the Club room on the 14th floor, fun to watch all the activity of the airport and metro trains. Breakfast and happy hour was delicious, lots of variety to choose from, healthy choices, hot and cold, fully stocked with juices, water, sodas, and milk. Coffee was excellent as well, and helpful hosts to attend to any questions or needs. Lots for the kids to do as well. Illy coffee store attached to hotel has great lite fare, sandwiches, snacks, fruit, baked goods.
Would definately return again soon!
