Was here on business trip. Honored conference rate. Starbucks inside. Rooms good condition. Bathrooms a little tight but is in DC. Location is perfect next to convention center and close to Metro. I will stay here again. Great bed and quiet room.

This hotel has lovely rooms for guests as well as a gorgeous lobby area with a bar, starbucks and restaurant attached. It also has a Market and a sundry shop attached. It is within 2-3 blocks of the subway system and in walking distance to all of the restaurants (including chinatown) and Metro Center (sports/concert venue).

Our family stayed at this very modern hotel over New Years and really enjoyed our experience. We were in town for the Winter Classic with our teenagers.

Lobby was inviting and interesting. It was spacious yet still yielded private areas. Had full bar in the lobby and you could order snacks. Very people friendly. Restaurant was superb. Service was excellent. Our room was clean. Room service was very prompt. Loved this hotel. I will stay again.

What a strange combination of shiny new renovated common spaces and truly mediocre rooms. We have had good experiences with Marriott properties in the past, and the lobby with cozy spaces and soaring ceiling made us hopeful. But our room was not much to speak of. The floor sloped from side to side, the bathroom had thick black mold in... More

Hotel location was the primary reason why we chose it, but that was just the beginning. It is between two central Metro stops and walking distance from the mall. Room was very clean and had all the basic amenities. Parking was really reasonable ($35/day) for the area. It was also great to have a Starbucks in the lobby to get... More

I have a high expectation of Renaissance Marriott's - based on my travel to others locations. The lobby, front line staff and room decor was excellent.
