          The Renaissance Washington, DC has an extravagant lobby and very nice entry way. Visitors are greeted by a posh bar and very friendly hotel staff. The rooms do seem a little bare, however, they do have the essentials. Service was excellent and the cleaning staff did a superb job.

          An excellent choice

          from

          Top quality service, comfortable room, good location, great amenities - I was very pleased with my two-night stay. I got a good deal - $129 a night - on the internet, and felt lucky to have found this place. The staff were courteous and friendly. The two floors under the hotel contain a business centre with internet access and a shopping mall. There's a handy coffee bar in the hotel lobby, and I was happy to eat in the President's sports bar (there's a more expensive restaurant, but this was an easier, more relaxed choice after a very long day's sight-seeing). No complaints whatsoever. When I arrived my non-smoking room smelt of stale smoke, so I asked to be moved - someone was there to move me within two minutes, no problem. I would definitely come here again.

          Not worth the money

          from

          I was very let down by the quality of my room at this hotel. The furnishings and decor were very shabby, and my drapes did not even close. It was nowhere close to being worth $250 per night.

          However, the location could barely be any closer to the conference center. That's the only thing that redeemed the hotel.

          Not bad

          from

          My boyfriend and I stayed for three nights in early September, 2004. I am not sure why others gave it a bad review. It was a nice hotel, with a great lobby, friendly staff (they let us check in before noon, no questions asked), and bar none the best exercise facility I have seen in any hotel. I do think the hotel might be in line for some remodeling, the hallway carpets were on the old side, but that did not affect our stay in the least. The only other bad thing was that the soundproofing was poor and we were right next to the entrance to the pool. We heard kids screaming very early in the morning when we were trying to sleep in. Bottom line, I have high standards and I enjoyed our stay. If you get a cheap rate it is good deal.

          Great hotel!

          from

          Great hotel! I was more than happy with the place. I paid only $60/night on priceline, but I still got first class service and an excellent room w/ a view. They even let me check in at 8 AM when check in wasn't supposed to be until 3 PM! The area doesn't have the charm of 17th st, but you can easily get there from the metro.

          Nice hotel, curteous staff, great location

          from

          Stayed here for 7 nights over Spring Break with family of 4 kids 7 and 9 y.o. Really enjoyed the stay. Room was good size, clean, staff was very nice. Great location just a couple of blocks from Chinatown and the Metro stop. We ate dinner most nights near Chinatown which has lots of CHinese and non-Chinese restaaurants e.g. Legal Sea Foods, Hooters, Subway, pizza, you name it. Indoor pool was nice as it was still a little cold and many other hotels didn't open their outdoor pools yet.

          It was the best of the best Hotel

          The Hotel was outstanding and the staff was very courteous. The room was nice and roomy.

          from

          I must say I was extremly pleased with the staff and the delicious breakfast and lunch I was served upon my lovely stay. I would highly recommend this "Rennaisance Hotel" for a beautiful and not to mention enjoyable and relaxing stay.

          Absolutely fabulous!

          from

          This hotel is marvelous. The staff is by far the most gracious, friendly and accomodating of any hotel staff I have ever dealt with!

          The doorman; desk clerks, wait staff; concierge; bartendars and bell hops were all delightful! The rooms were immaculate and lovely; beds clean and comfortable and the location is perfect. The room rates were more than reasonable and especially for a downtown DC hotel. I will never stay anywhere else when I go to DC!

          Not Worth It.

          from

          I was booked here 12/15 to 21, but checked out after one night. A dump of a room: old furnishings, dirty walls and carpet. They have upgraded rooms for at least $30 more per night. I asked at the front desk about changing rooms and was told that the only thing I could do was to pay the additional $30 per night...and I was told that with "attitude".

          Their Sports Bar is nice, with good drinks and nice service. Food service leaves a lot to be desired for the money. Architecture of the public areas is very nice, modern, and clean. I would recommend that you stay and eat elsewhere. I moved to the JW Marriott Hotel and it is much better.

          Quality Hotel

          from

          I stayed here twice and have been pleased with the service and the quality of the hotel. It isn't the four seasons, but it is in a great central location. Staff was pleasant and there is a nice indoor pool.

From there, some of the group went for an early supper, while the other half stood in a short line up to see the famous documents at the National Archives: the American Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
