If you've come to D.C. for the trendy dining and exciting nightlife, then the Renaissance Washington, DC Dupont Circle makes a great home base. This hotel boasts easy access to some of Washington's most popular restaurants and bars, and its location just south of Dupont Circle makes it easily accessible by metro. Inside the Renaissance's contemporary accommodations, guests are treated to modern amenities like 37-inch flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and Wi-Fi access (for a fee). Although generally pleased, some recent guests complain about the somewhat small size of the guest rooms and suggest that the bold patterns and stark blue and beige hues of the decor would use an upgrade. However, guests do praise the sophisticated cuisine served at the on-site M Brasserie. If you're a member of the Marriott Bonvoy program, you can cash in or redeem points by choosing to stay here.

Critic Reviews



In the heart of downtown, just a few blocks from the Georgetown area, sits this hotel offering a contemporary ambiance.


The Renaissance Washington has a little more style than most business-oriented hotels in sleepy Foggy Bottom; the 346 rooms are comfortable and immaculate; and the lobby with free Wi-Fi is bright and pleasant.
