Hotel offers gold members executive Lounge access which had a very good breakfast and evening snacks. Room was comfortable and noise from adjacent railroad tracks was no a problem as we quickly adjusted to that. Ventilation system operated well but it blew right on part of the bed. Hotel designers could easily avoid this in their design. The elevators are... More

This hotel is a gem for a Washington D.C. stay! It is just outside the hustle and bustle of the city, but with quick and convenient access. Due to my Marriott Rewards affiliation, we were upgraded to a 1-bedroom suite that was very impressive! The view of the capital from our room was impressive. This hotel has a convenient attached...

Hotel is nicely situated with great restaurants and metro within walking distance. Only issue was that my room was in the same side as the train tracks which seemed to run at all hours and could be noisy. Front desk was very very helpful and answered all of my questions professionally. I would recommend this hotel to anyone flying out... More

My husband and I only stayed here one night for a plane layover, but the service we received was top-notch. The front desk was very friendly and accommodating (our toothpaste was in luggage somewhere). We arrived later than the airport shuttle, so our cab fare was reimbursed. The lobby looked trendy, and the restaurant looked nice. Our room got upgraded,... More

My Boss & I attended a business conference there in December. The rooms were good, which is normal for a Renaissance Hotel. The service was excellent.

Im staying here now. I am not sure how I am going to sleep, airport and train noise (dont let them put you on the train side). When I arrived, my room was not ready, but by 5:00 it was ready. My television doesnt work. On the plus side however, room service got my order right.
