Recent guest reviews

I have never stayed at a renaissance hotel before and I am so impressed! I will never stay anywhere else!!

Beautiful river view and staff were very nice. Frustrtating that a $350 night stay does not inclue use of a microwave anywhere in the building. Wanted popcorn for a movie night with our kids.

Our room was very spacious and clean. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful with our reservation change.

Wonderful facility and walking distance to so much!

Towels are just poor quality. Just like a sand paper.

Everything was fine except I missed having a desk in the room.

Very convenient to eating shopping sightseeing. Renaissance was amazing. Has anything you could want.

The rooms were nice, spacious and comfortable. There was a blinking light near the ceiling that was constant throughout the night. That’s a sleep disturbance. But the absolute worst was the VERY STRONG perfume being wafted through the vents. It’s horribke. So strong and overpowering it smells like you’re walking through a cloud of smelly perfume. It’s a total chemical disturbance that cannot be avoided. Was giving me a headache. It’s unfortunate since the hotel itself is pretty lovely and nice location. The smell was so strong it will keep me from going to any renaissance hotel again, aince we were informed this was a trademark Renaissance scent. Ugh- what a mistake. If you like that kind of flowery old school perfume in massive doses, this may be your thing though.

Great hotel and great location. Excellent views and excellent service.

We enjoyed the fun atmosphere of the hotel, though the bath towels were rough and the room’s AC seemed to need a tune-up. Overall good experience - nothing out of the ordinary or special for the price.

Very Nice Hotel located close to so many things to do within walking distance.

Central location to the city sights and landmarks. Great river views!
