"Excellent location for convention and sightseeing"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 03, 2019 NEW
We were there for a convention at the Convention Center and loved the proximity that allowed us to get back to the hotel a few times per day if needed. Lots of cool restaurants to choose from and a CVS, Walgreens and Safeway in walking distance were an added bonus. The Mall and Smithonians were within easy reach and also walkable (17-20 minute walk to the closest ones.). The room had everyone one could desire including a mini-fridge which is not listed in the description. I didn't mind that the hotel does not offer a free breakfast as I fast in the mornings. A swimming pool at the hotel would have been the only thing that could have improved my stay there. The free Internet for Marriott Bonvoy members was sufficient for my needs of just using some apps on my phone but may not have been enough if I had had to access it with my laptop for work. We payed almost $250/ night but it was during the convention so that seems like a fair price.

"Very Nice Hotel!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 01, 2019 NEW
We do a night in DC every Black Friday after a day of shopping in Georgetown and this year we chose the DC Renaissance. Upon checking in we were greeted properly and very nicely! The lady checking us in recognized our status and was helpful. Valet parking was a breeze and was also very friendly. We really loved the looks and the vibe of the lobby… it was uniquely decorated with a club-vibe to the semi-loud music playing. Lots of quaint seating areas all over in the lobby too, plus a full bar off to one side. The room we got, a standard king was very nice… it was clean and had a comfy bed and very nice and clean bathroom too. TV and fridge were in great working order and there were plenty of outlet options available. We got a great night’s sleep and enjoyed the gym the next day. Their gym is large and offers tons of amazing Lifefitness options! Lots of free weights and machines too! The equipment was in great working order/condition and it was clean. Location of this hotel is excellent, right near the City Center area and very close to the Convention Center. We can’t wait to return!

"Excellent Service in Presidents' Restaurant"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 28, 2019 NEW
Service in the Main Lobby-Lounge area of the hotel, just outside of the Presidents' restaurant was, on 11/28/2019, excellent. Prompt, friendly, and thorough, it ensured that I was adequately attended to, welcomed, and fulfilled. Biljana, who served me, made certain that I wanted for nothing. Moreover, she ensured that I was un-burdened. Fare and atmosphere in the Lounge area were rewarding. Biljana's service, however, remained during my time as a patron, and remains, top of mind. Encouraging experience.

"Nice, But Nothing Special"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 26, 2019 NEW
I recently stayed at the Renaissance, D.C. as part of a recent group trip to the area. The hotel is nice and the staff is accommodating and very friendly. The rooms are nice and comfortable. The hotel itself is in a very good location and central to just about anything you'd like to see as a tourist. The location is probably the most attractive thing about the hotel.

Good location. Easy access to the Walter E Washington conference centre. A number of good restaurants (including two 1-Star Michelin, as well as other options) within 5-10 min walking distance. Hotel is OK, look a little tired, can become very expensive depending on the period.
