Nice hotel, but it's the little things or I should say lack of, that became very irritating. Coffee: If you get up early and don't want to disturb your roommate you would assume there would be complimentary coffee somewhere in the main lobby; wrong. You can buy some coffee at the on site Illy Coffee shop but they don't open...

We were in town for an event at the convention center and stayed at this property. The lobby and restaurant/bar areas are nicely decorated. I thought they were a little on the expensive side, but you are in DC and this is a highly scale property....so, this is very normal. The front desk staff was great. They were able to...

Stayed at the renaissance for 4 nights and the hotel is just OK. The front desk person who greeted us upon check-in was very unfriendly. Didn't even have the decency to look at us when we asked questions. And answered some of them with an attitude. When we booked the hotel originally, we requested a king size bed, with the...

I travel to Washington frequently, and I have stayed at countless hotels near DCA. Years ago, the properties in Crystal City, Arlington, and Pentagon City were run down, but there are now many decent properties near DCA. There is competition, and the Renaissance used a scam to pull in business customers. When I booked my room at the Renaissance Arlington...

Had a conference here. Hotel staff is excellent. They were able to get me in my room early before my meeting. Free shuttle from Reagan airport. Rooms are well kept and modern. Metro station about a 15 minute walk. They may even have a shuttle for that. Close to a lot of walkable restaurants

Close to National but no jet noise. The rooms are comfortable and relatively quiet. The lobby is bright and open and with an illy coffee shop. The restaurant Socci was surprisingly good for lunch and the bar area is very nicely done. The entire first floor is sleek and attractive. Crystal City is not the most interesting or exciting place...

Stayed 1 night between flights and everything about this hotel was first rate. From checking in to dinner at the restaurant- outstanding service and very good food / menu choices. Also an easy shuttle ride to/from the airport.
