We stayed for 2 nights and we were not impressed by the room. It was OK but I would expect more from a 4-star hotel than just a nice lobby. The location is good when you plan to go to the stadium to watch NHL.

Dear sebi1963, Thank you for writing a review about our hotel. I do agree that our location is perfect for staying to attend the NHL playoffs with our amazing Washington Capitals! I do understand that you did believe that our guest rooms were special. They do reflect a DC flair; however, I apologize that they were not the level you...

Have stayed here a few times for a conference held at this hotel. The location is descent, walking distance to great restaurants, even the monuments. The rooms are ok, nothing special at this price point. Our conference rate was $229, but after the cutoff the rate was $499 per night. I cannot imagine anyone paying that price to stay here....

Dear Kayla A, Thank you for writing a review about your recent stay at our hotel.

We stayed 2 nites for a convention in May 2015. This is a $300+ / room place, so you expect certain things at this price point. First the good: the lobby is great, the staff very welcoming, and our room itself was clean and modern. No problems here. But. But at this price point, I expect free wifi in the...

I had a very brief stay at the Renaissance Washington DC this past week and I was very notably underwhelmed. The service across the board - from the day and night front desk staff to the fitness center staffer - was completely without passion or interest in providing helpful service. It was just a hotel with rooms. No one really...

Location is very good for the Convention Center. Service is very good. Quite adequate electrical plugs for laptops, cell phones etc. WiFi should be included at these room rates! Would not recommend to a family with children for touring DC. Food and restaurant are typical for a large hotel in a metropolitan area.

I recently stayed 4 nights at this hotel. If you're looking for a nice hotel close to public transportation and the DC attractions, this is it! The Chinatown/Gallery Place metro stop is about two blocks. This station has the red, green and yellow lines. My room was very spacious with a sofa to relax on, but the bathroom was kinda...

I was in DC to attend a congress and this hotel was ideally located, just across the street from the conference centre. The hotel itself is functional with clean rooms and offers a decent breakfast. The fitness centre was excellent, spacious and well equipped and I ended up using it almost daily. The hotel is also close to a number...

Interesting lobby with plenty of nooks and crannies, even a library near the lobby bar with books for the guests to read during their stay. Nichole, the concierge, or "Navigator" as Renaissance terms them, was great and offered plenty of dining and entertainment options for me and my colleague, Ian the bellman was very gracious and knowledgeable about the area,...
