“wonderful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

I spent my birthday weekend at this hotel 10/11/13 thru 10/13/13 and enjoyed my stay. I am planning on staying at this hotel whenever I visit DC. The hotel rooms are modern , clean, and beautifully decorated with a refrigerator and safe. Stayed in a room with a double bed and it was very spacious. From check in it was fast and all the staff was courteous especially the bell man and the lady serving breakfast. The hotel has a beautiful lobby which is cool just to hang out and have a few drinks. They have a breakfast buffet available cost about $20 and there was an assortment of breakfast items to choose from. There is hotel shuttle available to crystal city station for anyone not wishing to drive into the city or go the mall at pentagon city...just tip generously.

My husband and I, along with two other couples, all stayed at this hotel to celebrate our anniversary. It was a great choice for everyone. The view is a matter of opinion. Ours overlooked the airport and the train tracks. What can you say? That is better than most city views. I thought the room and the location was perfect. It is close enough to walk to places in Crystal City a few clocks away, but far enough away to feel like you were removed from hustle and bustle. We walked a few times, drove once up to the movie theatre (which is a minute or two away), and then we used the shuttle once to go to the Metro station. It ran every 20 minutes up until about 11pm. We had the package that offered breakfast each morning, and I found that to be a fantastic deal. With the exception of one lady in the omelet/waffle area, I thought the workers in the restaurant were very pleasant and helpful. We also took advantage of the decent weather and used the rooftop terrace to have wine together. That was an awesome amenity too! I will say that we frequent Northern VA often during our anniversary weekend each year because it is a central location for us to meet up with our friends and family. And before coming here, we had another favorite hotel, which I will not name. But, for the location and at almost $100 cheaper per night, my husband has decided that this is now his favorite place. I would definitely go back!

This is a fantastic property within walking distance of the restaurants in Crystal City. It is convenient to the Metro and the airport.

The hotel facilities are very well maintained. The rooms were very clean and the staff was Fantastic!

If you need accomodations in the DC area I would definitely give them a try.

Room Tip: The Capital view rooms are great, but you may hear train noise if you are on a lower floor.

While I don't normally bring my wife and child on business trips, our stay here at the Renaissance Arlington Capitol View has been absolutely phenomenal! From the moment we checked in, and every single day the staff are extremely cheerful and nice! We are constantly being greeted, and welcomed. Some staff have even gone as far as giving a small stuffed gift to our child, and others bring us crayons and paper. We are ecstatic about the level of service that we received here. The hotel is amazingly designed and decorated, from the lobby and restaurants, to the pool and gym, and concierge lounge. The room itself was large and comfortable, and very clean and fresh. Again, our stay here has been absolutely wonderful! A huge thanks to you and your team, and everyone who works here!

Green Features: The hotel appears very environmentally friendly! The design is wonderful and all of the products offered appear to be natural.

I was @ the Renaissance 9/18 - 9/23 for a conference (GLM Summit). From our initial greeting from Richard when we disembarked from taxi to the entire staff @ front desk, we received superb customer service. Michael @ Front Desk assisted me with getting phone charged FedExed to my husband 9/19/13. His coworkers, Joey, Daniel, and Aye were also terrific. Aye assisted me with an early check-in on 9/19/13 and I felt like she indeed went above and beyond to coordinate this early check-in. The entire operation is classy and the staff makes their guests feel very valued and appreciated indeed. Choose Renaissance for future travels, whether business or pleasure.

We enjoyed this new hotel in Crystal City. We were upgraded to a spacious one bedroom suite. Rooms were very modern, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet on Sunday morning (free for Marriott Gold elites). Walking distance to restaurants and bars in Crystal City. Free shuttle van to National Airport. Friendly service - would stay again!

I booked the Marriott for a conference not expecting much. I actually looked into staying in a different hotel because of my negative impression of the Marriott but could not match the conference price. I was totally wrong about my impressions. The hotel is nice, clean. The rooms are spacious clean, in good repair. The room was QUIET, very important for me. The staff was friendly and outgoing, very willing to help. Location is great, walk to shops and restaurants. Free shuttle. Close to an awesome running trail.
A very pleasant surprise, I would definitely stay here again.
