I stayed at the Rennaisance Arlington Capital View Hotel based on the good reviews I read. Well they are 100 percent true. From the time you walk in you will be awed by the most beautiful decoration that is ultra modern (the place is 2 years old), right down to the most friendliest staff. I stayed for 4 nights and...

My husband and I stayed at the Renaissance for 3 nights 9/7-9/10/14. We had separate meetings. His were in D.C. and mine were at the hotel.

Very nice hotel, clean and nicely decorated - it felt very relaxing. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful, accommodating any request easily. We were there as part of a group using meeting rooms and holding evening social/dinner functions.

The hotel is clean and contemporary with a very nicely decorated lobby with plenty of seating/social spaces. Even though it's not very large, the layout makes it seem bigger than it really is. The rooms are nice and all bath products/amenities are nice. Beds are comfy and fixtures seem to be really well maintained. I had a room on the... More

Thank you for choosing the Renaissance Arlington Capital View for your stay.

I found this hotel to be superb in almost all aspects. No problems or issues within the scope of the hotel's control. Outstanding pool and fitness gym. Impeccable room. Very nice staff in all areas - front desk, cocktail bar, housekeeping, etc. Definitely would return!

Six months ago, my husband stayed here, and raved about the service and ambiance. In August we stayed for three days so that we could visit friends and family and explore some of the landmarks in the area. It was easy to use the elevators, and the valet service helped to dismantle the scooters and put them in the car.... More

Great hotel with staff that cannot do enough for you. Everything was clean and tidy and the room we were in was perfect. My only criticism is having to pay for the wi-fi in the room ($12 a day - far too much) although it is free in the lobby. Also free shuttle buses to the Crystal city metro station... More

I stayed here based on the proximity to DCA and the shuttle. My trip started off poorly since the pickup shuttle from DCA was 30 minutes late from the time they promised.
