Very nice hotel. Lovely view! Normally I sleep wonderfully but this time the queen bed was not as comfortable.

It was a pleasant stay. Our business is just down the road and it is very convenient to have a nice hotel three blocks away.

Great view, street entrance under construction, long way to park car..

Everything was excellent. The front desk girl, a short black girl was extremely friendly.

The Renaissance Hotel is really nice. It's right on the waterfront and my hotel room had a beautiful view of the harbor waterfront. The staff were excellent in customer service and hospitality. I was offered help with my luggage entering and exiting the hotel stay. Breakfast was really good! The staff in the restaurant were also very nice and helpful. One waitress went the extra mile and made hot chocolate with whipped cream and a straw for my best friend. We caught the Ferry boat to the other side of the river to Norfolk Waterside (full of restaurants and a mall a few short blocks off of Atlantic street. It was so peaceful and relaxing here at this hotel. When the ice machine was not working on my floor the front desk staff member personally got ice to fill my cooler and held our luggage to departure while we ate our last breakfast there. Very nice! I feel i didn't get to see everything but I would definitely go again and explore the area more. I heard about the river walk and saw couples enjoying the breeze from the water.

Near the water but not the best water. Roughly 20 minutes from cleaner water. Nice area and depending on time of year, really nice fireworks.

First time stay, staff(nicole) was polite& helpful.management was polite. Two thumbs up. Will return & recommend others to visit. Had a wonderful time. No complaints!

The Portsmouth area has no reliable taxi service to other areas.Pasenger ferry OK but limited destinations. Unless you have a car you are stuck there.

We stayed in the hotel for two nights and really enjoyed our visit. The room was clean, spacious, had adequate lighting, and a comfortable bed. We didn't interact with the staff much but when we did they were friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.

Lock to bathroom broken. Main door to . Room had a broken latch and lock batteries dead. Couldn't get into room until very nice maintenance man fide it
