If you have a parcel delivered to this Hotel, be aware that they charge up to US25.00 just for receiving it. More if they have to keep you parcel until your arrival. When I complained about these excessive charges, I was told that they handed their parcel and mail services to FedEx Office. No mention of these charges on the...

I stayed here due to its proximity to my conference and wasn't expecting anything special. I was pleasantly surprised. It's well located within walking distance to tons of restaurants and sightseeing. Rooms are large and comfortable. Bathroom was nice. I had a great view of the Carnegie library. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The attached restaurant (Presidents?) had great...

As a Marriott Rewards Gold member, I asked upon check-in if we might be given a slightly larger room, especially given that we have two teenaged children and my son is now 6'1 so it helps to be able to have a rollaway in the room in addition to two queen or double beds. The front desk rep kindly complied...

Before booking a hotel, I always read reviews of travellers. As this hotel had really positive ones throughout, I felt comfortable staying at the Renaissance. I used to stay at other Renaissance hotels before and was always quite satisfied with it. But this time, I really have to say how disappointed I was with my stay. It all began with...

The rooms were bright and the energies were positive. location is spot on and lacks nothing. Food in all restaurants was great. Service perfect! the lobby always as a buzz - making one feel good and cheerful. The staff all across the hotel were brilliant and flexible. I will certainly stay here on my next trip to DC.

This hotel is great, conveniently located, and the employees are all very helpful. The prices reflect that, but sometimes it is worth it. We stayed for a week over the holidays. The housekeeping service even gave my young daughter a little Marriott bear, which she loved. They stock the bathroom with Aveda products, which is always nice. The breakfast buffet...

And sadly , no free breakfast. I felt like I needed to wear a little bit nicer clothes ! LOL...We were there Dec. 26-27 at a rate of...

Entering the Hotel the decor was amazing, the checkin was quick and painless. We came here as a family trip and decided to use the in/out parking for $35 /night. Although I looked on different forums to find cheap parking areas I would suggest to use their parking for convenience. After 6:30pm or 10pm certain streets are free to park...

Hotel very clean, lovely decor, friendly staff, very nice breakfast on site (although a little expensive), reasonably priced self park and great location. My one complaint would be that the mattress in our room were the thinnest most uncomfortable mattress we have ever slept on. Both my husband and I were unable to sleep well and both had back pain...
