Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel | Discover Renaissance Hotels

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

The next best thing to catching live action at the Capital One Arena is to cheer with fellow fans at our lively Presidents Sports Bar.

Located right in between Capitol Hill and the White House, our downtown DC hotel could not be better positioned for any visitor who wants to soak up the incredible history of the nation's capital. Our Navigator Saidu is on hand for any advice about where to go to get the full Washington experience, and can help out with visits to nearby attractions such as the National Portrait Gallery or the National Mall monuments. For sports fans, we're also only a stroll away from the Capital One Arena, home of the NBA's Washington Wizards and NHL's Washington Capitals. And if all that sightseeing has helped you work up an appetite, try one of our five on-site restaurants, serving food for every palate.
