Once this was the AC chain. Have stayed here at least 25 times. Service, rooms, rates are all excellent. Recently the Marriott folks acquired and installed a fantastic bar and restaurant. Frankly is first class for a Marriott. The bar serves first class hand crafted coctails. See Teresa, she is very special and will make you one fabulous coctail.

Spent a night at the Renaissance. The room was well appointed with a sizeable bathroom and no signs of wear and tear. The breakfast in the bar was excellent. The hotel staff, including concierge and porters, were very helpful. It is a nicely sized hotel with mostly American clientele

Modern hotel, modern and oriental/minimalist style. I enjoyed my quiet single room and the breakfast had many delicious choices. Service was sophisticated but professional and friendly. I would return here again.

The hotel is in an excellent location, close to decent shopping and some good "non touristy" cafes and restaurants The room was nice, clean, what you'd expect from a Ren, however a bit dated in styling. It could definitely use a facelift however its not "run down" by any means, simply dated in its styling in the rooms. Breakfast is... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights prior to a Princess cruise (June 29-30). The hotel is very nice, modern, but the service in general was poor. There were several other pre-cruise guests that we spoke to later who had the same experience, so I guess they did not do reviews/reviews yet. The "restaurant" area on the ground level... More

It's what you need. Quiet dignity tastefully decorated. Perhaps a bit dark as far as rooms go, but definitely well maintained. Quality fixtures and beautiful marble floors. Many TV channels and music too! Good variety at breakfast but did not see it well used at other times.

We stayed here before boarding a cruise out of Barcelona. Smaller Renaissance Hotel located only blocks from the action but felt like you were more in a local neighborhood which was nice. Not in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Barcelona but a 5-10 minute walk put you right in the center of all the action! Nice, modern... More

I chose this hotel because of the location while in Barcelona. Good choice for the location. Our room was a superior room on a high floor and seemed to have everything we needed. The staff was friendly but there was something unusually impersonal about our service--as if there were staff everywhere but no one really ' in charge' of assuring... More

Spent two nights in this hotel with my girlfriend. Good things: -The navigator did a superb job recommending us restaurants and clubs. -Breakfast was good, but the waitresses were a bit slow. The good thing about this is that it gives a good and calm atmosphere to eat your breakfast, since they don't rush around. -The hotel bar and the... More
