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,...

By now I should be exhausted staying in hotels --- 9 of my last 15 nigths have been in 3 different DC hotels. But my two night stay at the (downtown) Renaissance was outstanding. The lobby is sectioned off into different rooms with different types of seating and style -- and not that noisy despite being very busy. The consierge...

I was upgraded to a Club Room that faced the Atrium. It was very quiet, but there is no view. Colleague who had a room with a view did complain about the traffic noise. Staff is extremely helpful and be sure to see Mohammed for restaurant information and reservations. He's outstanding! The room is well appointed and very clean. Housekeeping...

At the Renaissance, you can truly experience technology as though you lived during the Renaissance. Free wi-fi? Nope. High definition? Nope. 2 queens and a roll-away? They'll only tell you so on the phone. You'll have to buy another room as soon as you show up because it's a "fire hazard". Convenient it is now, but wasn't a week ago...

Stayed here for a conference. Everything was great! Room was super clean and very quiet. Mine faced the atrium area so the room in general was a bit dark since the shades had to always be pulled down (unless I wanted other people staring at me). The TV remote is a bit difficult to maneuver if you want to watch...
