Slept Well In Seattle

Our room was ready upon arrival. Everything was very clean, fresh and comfortable. The view from the 18th floor was very nice. Service was excellent in all aspects. We enjoyed breakfast in the restaurant and Happy Hour drinks in the 28th floor lounge which is right beside the indoor pool and Spa! Very good central location. Within walking distance to the waterfront, lots of shopping, Qwest Stadium and Monorail etc. The Renaissance Seattle is a great value and we were pleased to have selected this hotel.

Awesome Hotel, Great Staff

It was a great hotel. I stayed there for business with a group. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful especially [...] in concierge! He was the best! I know its his job to help but he went above and beyond and took care of us! He is actually the best ever, so nice!

Renaissance ROCKS!

The staff was extraordinarily friendly and helpful, no matter what their titles were. I attended a workshop over the weekend. This is my 2nd stay here and the only thing I would say that wasn't pleasant for me, the temperatures were rather cool throughout the hotel, not sure what the thermostat is set at but everyone felt a bit chilled this weekend.

Very nice

Very nice place to stay. Although it was windy, wet and cold most of the time we were there, we were still close enough to everything that walking was not an issue. The hotel was very nice and the staff were all very courteous. We noticed a fair number of pilots staying there. Either they give them an unusual discount or word has spread that it is one of the better places for the price. After staying there, I think it is the latter.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Unfair to limit this to only one word...this hotel is close to shopping, recreation attractions, night life, dining, and sporting venues. It is a short walk to Seattle's LINK which will take you to and from SEATAC (airport) so we did not bother with a car and never missed not having one.

Beautiful & Great Location!

The location was perfect! We were walking distance to Pike Place Market, Hard Rock Cafe, Seattle Art Museum, Public Library, shopping, restaurants, and bars! We also walked to the monorail station and went to the Space Needle! That was an awesome experience..it's a must see! Seattle is beautiful and there is so much to do.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Take a cab and visit Fishermen's Terminal. They have several restaurants..but check out the seafood restaurant. The food is fabulous with a great view of the dock. They have a memorial for fishermen that have died at sea and this is where the t.v. show "Deadliest Catch" docks their boats.

We were there for 8 nights. Enjoyed all!

Parking our rented car was expensive, rented it from nearby Budget and walked the hills for free parking. Everything and everyone was very pleasant though and we really enjoyed being at the hotel. Would stay there again. Loved Maxwells for breakfast ea. day. Waiter was super friendly and chatty. Good service all around.

4th of July vacation

The hotel swimming pool was not an enjoyable experiance. It was VERY small and the seating was not good. If you were sitting in the hot tub and someone was swimming in the pool you would get cold water splashed on you.
