Some good - Some bad

Seattle was a blast. The Underground tour was the highlight of the trip. The hotel looked nice but somethings were not. Hard lumpy pillows, towels like sandpaper, and the wind whistled though the window all night.

Renaissance Has Very Friendly Staff

We were there to participate in the Seattle marathon. We had Thanksgiving dinner in the 28th floor restaurant, and it was very good (among the three of us, we had all three entree choices). "Executive Hour" (happy hour) snacks and drinks also very good. 2nd floor restaurant was helpful with special pre-marathon food. Good place to stay!

Food at the Renaissance was very good. I'd also recommend the Flying Fish restaurant which has 12 oysters for $6 during happy hour on week days. We also liked Lola's, which serves lunch/breakfast until 3 in the afternoon. [...]

Great location and quality for the price

We went to Seattle for the MLS Cup with one weeks notice. Great price even at the last minute. The hotel was a short walk to Pike Place which should not be missed if you are in Seattle. The only negative was the noise in the room from the freeway below. Otherwise the hotel had friendly staff, nice decor and clean accommodations.

Go to Pike Place for a farmers market experience. If you are a seafood lover, Pike Place Fish Market is top notch. There is something for everyone there.

Great Time

Staff was very friendly and eager to help out with locations of sights and places to eat, as well as very accommodating. Only bad thing about trip was weather, (which you can't do anything about) otherwise, was a very good time.

nice location and accommodations

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Our room was a double with a nice TV and bath. Because our neighbors were loud the first night of our trip, the hotel moved us to a nicer room on a virtually unoccupied floor. The fitness center had 6 treadmills, some bikes, a stair climber, free hand weights and a precor machine. Overall, very nice accommodations with a great downtown location.

Great Location, Excellent Price!

The breakfast buffet waiting staff was better than most restaurants that I've been to in the last year. Very friendly, attentive and ready to serve... something that seems lost with the younger staff which is more in tune to talking with each other than doing their job! Also, the happy hour on the top floor was super at a reasonable price. Lastly, the bell boy was on top of his game, ready and eager to help without asking. I will stay here again!
