“New Modern Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

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.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms offer a better view. Odd numbered rooms face the airport and Washington DC. Room...

When I booked this hotel i was expecting to pay $16 for garage parking because I wasn't able to find a review of the street parking situation. Well, upon arrival, to my amazement, right before turning into the garage, I looked down the street and saw what appears to be an empty lot one block down from the Renaissance/Residence Inn complex. There in an abandoned lot with free street parking without meters, for a total of about 30 spots maybe. Give this a try before heading into the garage unless you have to park inside the garage.

The hotel is absolutely beautiful. It looks brand new and everything inside the rooms are top notch. The furniture is solid wood, the bathroom is beautifully appointed with Aveda products. The shower is spacious and the showerhead is powerful. Luckily, the doors are well built and water does not leak all over the place like some of the other newer hotels.

The gym is quite large with a good selection of bikes, ellipticals, free weights, and Precor machines. The pool is a joke and meant for kids so don't bother.

The lobby restaurant serves pretty good food. You can get a $9 personal pizza that can fill you up.

Beautiful, elegant, modern, super clean, spacious, comfortable hotel. Excellent friendly customer service. Despite its proximity to the airport, you can NOT hear at all the noise of the planes neither the trains that are seen passing from the room windows! My favorite part of the hotel besides our room were the terraces, I imagine that must be beautifully flowered in Spring. My little daughter's favorite part, the pool and the lobby!
This hotel is located in a very nice, enjoyable, clean, quiet and safe area even to walk around at night, which offers various options in restaurants within different price ranges and types of food, some nice shopping centers and easy access to metro stations.
Consider eating breakfast in the hotel's restaurant, it offers for a reasonable price a great, varied, nutritious, attractive buffet, it is better than struggle early in the morning to get a warm breakfast at other restaurants. Walking is better than driving because of the parking. If you're NOT driving, take the free shuttle that the hotel offers to the transportation terminals, is comfortable, clean, pleasant and has very friendly drivers. If you can skip permanent Internet service in your room, use the internet in the lobby, it's free :)

Room Tip: The suites are larger, sunny, quieter, have a small refrigerator

Recently stayed at this hotel to attend a conference. Front desk service: excellent Check-In: friendly, considerate, informational, timely Room: clean, well stocked, beds & pillows comfortable, nicely designed Overall appearance of hotel/conference services: Excellent.
Restaurant in the lobby area: excellent food, slightly pricey (but not really for the area), clean, good service after a long trip & day,

I am very particular about giving an excellent rating but I felt this hotel far exceeded my expectations. Nice job to all of you.

We stayed over a long weekend, free shuttle from the airport and back. We have stayed in many locations over our travel history, this location ranks in the top three. Great value, great service staff, great little restaurant. free shuttle to the metro. the only downside was no free wifi. We will stay at this location on our next trip to DC. Thanks to all your staff!!!
