This property appears to have been recently renovated and is in decent condition. The staff is mostly helpful. The lobby is modern, but somewhat noisy. The rooms are quite small, but recently renovated. There were a few issues with my room such as soap scum on the bottom of the shower glass, something that I've never encountered before. One of...

A pleasant stay - the staff were accomodating, the rooms comfortable, and the meeting rooms more than adequate (I was here for a conference). The only complaint I would have is that they need to rename this hotel - there is certain no view of the capital from anywhere - you'll see in the picture, the view from my room...

I stayed here for a work trip and felt so rested and relaxed that I would love to do it again even though I live in Arlington. I had an amazing view of the airport and it was so fun to watch the planes take off and land. Delightful bed - great sleep even though I was under a lot...

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as a chaperone for a JR High Washington DC trip. The hotel was clean, and people were friendly and responsive to needs. The wi-fi worked well to keep up with a bit of work while on the trip and it was relatively convenient for getting back into DC for attractions.

The hotel is centrally located and is very quiet. Its proximity to Reagan was excellent. The staff is extremely helpful and always willing to help. Even though we only stayed one night we would definitely stay at the hotel again on a subsequent trip to DC.

Nice hotel, but it's the little things or I should say lack of, that became very irritating. Coffee: If you get up early and don't want to disturb your roommate you would assume there would be complimentary coffee somewhere in the main lobby; wrong. You can buy some coffee at the on site Illy Coffee shop but they don't open...

We were in town for an event at the convention center and stayed at this property. The lobby and restaurant/bar areas are nicely decorated. I thought they were a little on the expensive side, but you are in DC and this is a highly scale property....so, this is very normal. The front desk staff was great. They were able to...

Stayed at the renaissance for 4 nights and the hotel is just OK. The front desk person who greeted us upon check-in was very unfriendly. Didn't even have the decency to look at us when we asked questions. And answered some of them with an attitude. When we booked the hotel originally, we requested a king size bed, with the...

I travel to Washington frequently, and I have stayed at countless hotels near DCA. Years ago, the properties in Crystal City, Arlington, and Pentagon City were run down, but there are now many decent properties near DCA. There is competition, and the Renaissance used a scam to pull in business customers. When I booked my room at the Renaissance Arlington...

Had a conference here. Hotel staff is excellent. They were able to get me in my room early before my meeting. Free shuttle from Reagan airport. Rooms are well kept and modern. Metro station about a 15 minute walk. They may even have a shuttle for that. Close to a lot of walkable restaurants
