Our Top Priority – Our Guests: COVID-19 update and cancellation policy

Grab some coffee at Espressamente Illy before heading to the airport. You won't have another cup this good until your next visit.

From the impeccable service you’d expect from Renaissance, to the subtle yet stylish interior, nothing here is left to chance at our Washington, DC area hotel. We’re equally proud of the delicious coffee served up at the Espressamente Illy Café. We’re also the ideal place to do business, with ample meeting space and being situated just a few minutes from a plethora of big businesses (not to mention Reagan National Airport). If you have time to spare, ask local Navigator David how to get the most out of the beautiful 35-mile Mount Vernon Trail.

For over 30 years, this has been the "go to” destination for an authentic Maryland Blue Crab Feast. Go with a group, nurse a cold beer, and order the "all you can eat crabs," which are served on a large tray then dumped directly on your paper-covered table. Everyone digs in with mallets in hand, as well as knives and buckets for the non-edible parts. You can't help but have a great time!

Christ Church

Discovering Christ Church in Old Town Alexandria is like taking a step back in time to 1773 and imagining what it was like to attend a worship service with the likes of George Washington. Be sure to check out the beautiful churchyard out back where you’ll find pre-Civil War grave markers as well an inconspicuous dirt mound covered with ivy that is the mass grave of Confederate prisoners of war.
