My daughter and I enjoyed a fabulous "girls weekend" in D.C. at the new Renaissance Capital View. The hotel itself is very modern, not my taste, but the theming is carried out very well. The room was spacious and included a decent-sized mini fridge. Bathroom was standard-sized and had a great rain forest showerhead -- terrific water pressure. Everything was spotless, as to be expected in a brand new hotel. The pool is small but perfectly adequate for kids. The only down side was the small area around the pool ... only two chair and one small table, which made it difficult to find some place to put our stuff. There is a nice terrace outside. As one other reviewer pointed out, they are still working out some of the details (we called down for room service, and they were already out of one of the four desserts offered), but staff were exceptionally friendly. Only disappointment was the view from our room, overlooking two office buildings. For the intro price it was fine, but it would have been special (and a great marketing move) to have been given a room with a view, especially since the hotel appeared to be fairly empty in only its second week.
