I was visiting on business today but also visited before with my wife while on vacation last year. This Renaissance is semi connected to the Residence Inn next door. They both share the fitness center and pool. The pool is (a joke) in a small enclosed room and is of little value unless you have small kids. There is no hot tub/jaccuzi. But the rest of the fitness center is one of the best that I've seen at a hotel. The two hotels also share the same house keeping staff. The house keeping stations are located on each floor and they separate the hotels. With so much shared between the two hotels the decision point is really the conceirge lounge provided by the Renaissance. It is also one of the best I have experienced. It is on the top floor with a great view of Washington DC and Reagan National Airport. Little touches like providing baggies with ties so you can take along some nuts and M&Ms for your flight home put this one over the top. Being a Marriott Reward member with access to the lounge makes this the best choice for me. If I didn't have access to the lounge, I would probably stay at the Residence Inn to take advantage of their manager's receiption in the afternoon and free hot breakfast in the morning. Having said that, another factor that might keep me on the Rennaisance side would be the super comfy beds.
