We had a reservation (prepaid) here for the night before our cruise. Our flight out of California was cancelled and we finally arrived the early morning of the cruise. Exhausted after the "red eye", we checked in and were also given a late check out for the afternoon. It was perfect - got a few hours sleep, a shower and... More

Interesting subject line?! Well, you should of been there for it. For me, I wasn't part of it and the front desk staff did an excellent job making their regular guess aware of the party. It was a little noisy even up on the 6th floor and I had 2 calls at 2 AM asking if I was the front... More

Hotel has great amenities and is conveniently located next to the Cruise Port Terminal. Check-in was easy and they accommodated a late check-in, while still keeping our specific room for us. Only complaint was that my family was not allowed to bring in a Starbucks drink into the breakfast restaurant the next morning as outside food is not allowed, and... More

This truly is a cruise port hotel! It is close to the airport and cruise port (a few people actually walked there, it is that close). Additionally there is lots of restaurants and shopping (many other things as well) within walking distance. The rooms have been renovated and are very nice. My room had a computer desk w/chair, large flat... More

I stayed here prior to a convention. The hotel is very conveniently located and within walking distance. The room are spacious, modern and the beds are really comfortable. Staff was really friendly. Pool area is very small but I spent the morning doing work out there and it was peaceful. There is a nice sized bar in the lobby, though... More

Spent one night at the Renaissance before our cruise. Had an especially friendly check in gentleman - wished I remembered his name. He offered us coupons for a free breakfast and also coupons for an appetizer because of our status. We went next door for our evening meal (Pei Wei) and when we came back, we went into the bar...

My wife and I stayed here on May 2nd and 3rd. Staff was very friendly, room was clean and seems to have been just updated. The exercise room was good with newer equipment machines (running and elliptical) and some free weights. Good location to do anything in the downtown area. Only negative is the very basic restaurant on site. It... More

Had a room on the 11th floor. Excellent views of the port. Wonderful to wake up in the morning and find all the cruise ships within view. Rooms were quiet. Everything in the room was clean and modern. Bathroom facilities worked well. So close to all amenities - Walgreens for pre-cruise purchases, restaurants, Ross, movies etc. Took a shuttle to...
