Great hotel stay

The hotel was very nice and clean. It located outside of downtown Austin but is convieniently located. We were 10-15 minutes drive from anywhere we needed to go. The staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed everything about this stay.

All kinds of entertainment are just a short drive away. The hotel is located near the major roads and highways so getting where you want to go is pretty easy.

Enjoyable parents weekend

Had my parents and aunt stay for the weekend. They said beds were extremely comfortable, the rooms are very roomy and the decor is beautiful. Even though the hotel was busy, they had no noise issues. Check in staff were polite. The bell hop was wonderful, extremely helpful and friendly which I greatly appreciated with getting my parents and elderly aunt in and out of the car in the very cold weather! Breakfast was just okay. I would be happy to have them stay again, since they said they enjoyed their stay immensely.

Kind of Disappointed...

Stayed here on business, I loved the location of the hotel and the staff at the check in where nice, but the housecleaning staff really disappointed. They didn't clean the coffee maker, I spilled some coffee grounds on the floor and they didn't bother to clean vacuum it up, they kept forgetting to replenish items (didn't leave me coffee cups, conditioner, etc. after they were used up). My AC was broken on arrival, took them 2 days to fix, and I was very uncomfortable those first two days. I would stay here again and give it another chance, but it was extremely disappointing since all the reviews were mostly positive for this place.

Graduation Weekend

Great! I booked for 2 nights. A little ways from the UT campus, but it was better to avoid the congession and rowdy guests at the hotels downtown. My parents stayed in the room the first night, I shared the room with a friend the second night. I called ahead, because my parents were going to arrive before me, the rooms were pre-paid and I didnt want them to be asked for a credit card. The person I talked to on the phone was being very difficult, saying that I needed to be there at check-in . . . I finally got annoyed and hung-up. Maybe she felt bad, because when my parents arrived, about an hour after my call, there was no problem. They had the confirmation information and they were given a key. I provided my credit card for incidentals when I arrived a few hours later. I asked the front desk to spread fresh linens between nights and they did! Very nice hotel overall. I literally only slept there for about 5 hours, so I didn't use the amenities. They seem to have lots of options for in hotel dining and surrounding area. The valet staff was cool with me using the front as a loading and unloading zone - harassment free. Room was a little stuffy, like it might have been a smoking room, once upon a time. Updated TV, chair with ottoman and 2 double beds. I would stay again!

Comfort and Value

My one night stay at the hotel was a very nice one and an exception value. Except for the knock on my door at 8.30am, I would recommend this hotel

Very accomodating during time of need

Our entire neighborhood was evacuated due to fire and the Renaisance Hotel was very welcoming and accommodating to the residents who sought shelter there. They waved the pet deposit fee so that those stranded with their pets wouldn't be burdened with additional expenses. They also checked people in swiftly and did their best to serve us, despite the fact that they were not staffed for a full house. They were awesome and I couldn't have felt more welcome!!

Nice place with nice people

I was very happy with all aspects of this hotel. The staff was competent and friendly, the location was accessable. The room was clean and comfortable. My wife and I were in town for her girlfriends birthday so it was our refuge post party.
