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...

Dear mickswen727, Thank you for your feedback regarding our Wi-Fi, HDTV’s and room type with additional rollaway beds. I have shared your feedback with our Front Office Manager and our Area Director of IT. As you may have heard through various channels, Wi-Fi is now complimentary to all Marriott Rewards members. This is such a great benefit and is worth...

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...

After my previous bad experience w/ Renaissance in Philly, my expectations could not have been any lower. Finally, this Renaissance across the street from convention center turned out to be a good choice. Modern design dominate, also in rooms, v contemporary. Check-in was quick despite some queues (they seem do get corporate groups regularly). Room was spacious, perfectly clean with...

I chose this hotel for proximity to the convention center. I arrived before check-in time, but was able to access my room. I was also able to secure a late check-out. The service was excellent, and always delivered with a smile. The room was clean and comfortable. My only complaint was the room service menu is skimpy, likely because there...

Hotel was nice, clean and quiet. Area was safe. Service was good. Location was far from where I needed to be - thankfully transportation around DC was easy. The nearest convenience store is a couple blocks away.

Dear AsISeeIt4680, Thank you for your recent review about our hotel. I am thrilled you enjoyed the service while you were here. As you mentioned, our hotel was a bit far from your business; Marriott has hotels throughout our Nation's Capital and I am certain, on your return to DC, you will find one closer to your destination. Of course,...

I stayed at this hotel on business. I had the best sleep at this hotel, it was wonderful. The location was good, close to China Town and right across the street from the convention center. It also had easy access to the metro. The thing I did not like about this hotel, room service was way to expensive. Had I...

I came to stay at Renaissance today! The told me they are oversold and although I fully paid 640 USD for my room they cancelled my booking. I am not even sure if I am going to be refunded through the 3 rd Party that sold the room. They also said they booked a new room for me 30 Min...

Dear Angelice, Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns about your experience at our hotel. We were in an oversold situation on the day of your arrival.

My girlfriend's and I came into DC for the Cherry Blossom Race. We checked into two rooms and found that they gave us king bedrooms instead of two double beds.

We stayed here for our annual trip to visit with elected officials. The service was superb. The hotel was clean. I hear from one of our fellow travelers the opportunity to share the gym was awesome and one of the best gyms he's been to. Thanks for a great stay for 17 of us!

Welcoming hotel, clean, nice meeting space, good sports bar. My trip got off on the right foot when Christiana was my check-in clerk. She was welcoming and helpful. The banquet service staffers were uniformly pleasant and helpful. Comfortable place for a conference. The meeting rooms are an easy distance from the sleeping rooms.
