I came for a convention and stayed two nights. The location is perfect for this purpose. One block away from convention hall, few more blocks away from the Verizon center. Not alot of food places in the area. The hotel needs an update, looks dated and worn. My room was OK, small and clean.. The club was ok, gym was...

I went there for a big meeting and would be looking for something better if on my own. The hotel had positive and negative aspects. OK: the room was OK. Climate control good. Bathroom and bed OK. Housekeeping and cleanliness OK. Size OK for one person if you're not there much. Breakfast each day in the restaurant was fairly good...

Clearly improved from last time I was here (4 years ago). Club level rooms have been updated. Service and staff are excellent but the Club Lounge is nothing special. The variety of food could be better. The "navigators" are excellent on directions and maps.

I am attending a big Conference in Washington and the hotel is just across a small park. It takes under 5 minute to walk across. I have the luxury of returning to the hotel in the middle of the meeting. The Concierge floor serves breakfast and drinks throughout the day.

Hotel was nice, booked just one night for my granddaughter but stayed in another room at the hotel for 3 nights. Weren't told that you could pay a little extra for the rooms to get access to free breakfast and coffee through the day, within walking distance to the National Mall so that is a plus. The room I was...

The hotel was beautiful. Short ride from Union Station. Although I stayed only one night, it was a nice. I arrived late, checking in was wonderful. The front desk staff was pleasant and professional.

I stayed at this hotel the first weekend of March 2017 as I was attending a conference at the Marriot Marquis which across the street. The Renaissance was centrally located to the conference and to everything downtown. Friendly staff, quick check-in. Good eating palces within the complex. Would stay here again and recommend to everyone.
