Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel

Arlington, VA
LEED Gold certified

The Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel captures and celebrates the evidence of motion, providing an exciting, stylish and dynamic experience. The design conveys not only literal motion, with fluid water elements, but also the palimpsest of motion in concentric circles.  Angles and curves draw the guest in through the tall glass entry walls, into the space beyond, which is punctuated by bright colors and striking art pieces.  The contemporary, luxuriously appointed lobby includes places to sit and chat with friends and colleagues, work productively alone or as team, and to celebrate success. The space itself adapts from day to night, as the multi-function lobby provides guests not only with their first taste of the hotel’s dedication to service, but invites them to return to relax or work.


Guests can interact in the open conversation area, or spend some time tucked away in the smaller library or in semi-private seating, watching the world go by.  The space flows seamlessly into a destination restaurant, with an accompanying day and night bar. Its unique design and changeable seating configuration make it a focal point for an early breakfast or a late night drink.  The landing of the grand stairway provides a view of Washington as visitors ascend to business conferences or parties in the upper level meeting rooms and ballrooms. Away from the flow of guests and visitors, guestrooms provide a sanctuary of soothing colors and attention to detail, with every comfort for travelers.
