We stayed here for a last minute trip to DC with friends. The hotel is very nice and updated. The decor is very fun and of course lives up to the Renaissance brand image. The rooms were comfortable, a little small, but that's not unusual for a city. Definitely in a great location. We were able to walk to the...

Hotel is clean, comfortable and the staff are all very helpful and friendly. We did have some issues with the room next door in terms of noise however that is no fault of the hotel. The hotel is positioned in a very busy area in terms of traffic so try and avoid travelling during peak hour times or catch the...

...For the rest of us!!! What a great idea to decorate the lobby with a metal pole tree, wall of grievances, and an area to test the feats of strength. This was the cherry on the top to a very comfortable stay. Our room was quiet, lounge well stocked and all staff very nice. Nice restaurants in close proximity. We...

After reading many reviews, we were worried that the room would be too small or that the noise would be a problem or that we may not even have coffee in our room (could you imagine that horror? ;). Well, none of those were the case. We found the room size to be about a 4 on a scale of...

Nothing special about this hotel except for the people and the great location. Rooms are okay, lobby is nice, lots of seating. Prices are very good. If you aren't looking for luxury at all, this is a nice choice.

The lobby is nice and there is a bar with good service. The rooms are small, but nice enough. Though you are on a main road, noise level was not problematic. Needs update. Biggest complaint was the lack of coffee in the room or lobby. We were up early on a Thursday morning and had to walk across the street...

This hotel is probably well priced for Washington DC, however the rooms are very small and the beds are very uncomfortable. It's an old hotel in much need of a renovation. In saying that, it is joined to a small coffee shop which sell good coffee which was handy in the morning. You need to ask at reception to join...
