5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I was originally booked at the Marriott. FORTUNATELY they overbooked and made me stay here. WOW! I just got back from Paris and London and regularly stay at 5-stars on vacation. This may be the most beautiful hotel I've EVER stayed in and I'm not a fan of DC. If you stay in DC, do yourself a favor and stay... More

Visiting for a conference and truly enjoyed my stay. Hotel offers free shuttle service to airport and area shopping areas. Restaurant had lovely choices and the hotel has a coffee shop in the lobby as well. Hotel is a block from a metro area which is convenient. If you need a quick snack or forgot something at home, they have... More

Beds were incredibly comfortable and the carpets showed great signs of cleaning and care which made me feel comfortable enough to settle in like home. (I even kicked off my socks and shoes and walked around barefoot which I rarely do on hotel carpets because-- call me paranoid-- they always have gross stains or hair or something gross left behind!)...

First of all, the staff here were exceptional throughout, but especially at check in (Kath) who looked after us so well as we arrived early due to a flight change and needed to store our bags until check in time. We booked directly with them and for the same price we would have got from a booking site, had breakfast... More

This is close to airport and makes it a great convenience. Alot of meetings in this hotel, which is connected to the Residence Inn. The bar was very busy. The room amenities are Aveda and terrific but housekeeping didn't leave me shampoo or conditioner and I had to call twice to get them. My room faced the back by the... More

Stayed 3 days for a business meeting at the conference center. I had to wait 20 minutes for the free shuttle from airport, but the ride was short. I've taken a cab to this hotel before and it costs only about $8-$10. Unlike most Marriott properties, they noted my need for a feather-free room and had everything ready to go... More

The Renaissance Capital View is located in bland, generic Crystal City, but the hotel is anything but. The colorful lobby is more typical of a boutique hotel, with modern, almost edgy furnishings in the sitting areas, and a sleek bar/restaurant area. My check-in was quick and friendly. My king room was about standard in size, but very attractive with cherry... More
