We arrived at the Renaissance for our two night weekend stay and were impressed with the beautiful lobby and friendly staff who greeted us. This hotel was rated as a 4* on Priceline, which was an upgrade from the 3 1/2* bid I had made and the lobby reflected that rating. We were given our choice of a Queen Room... More

Great customer service at this property. The hotel itself could use some upgrades. Still amazed that hotels charge for Wi-Fi access.

I had my graduation at the Arie Convention Center in Chicago. The hotels in Chicago are overly priced and overrated so I chose to stay in a suburb 30 minutes away by freeway. This hotel has two towers, marble floors, elegant elevators, a pool, spa, lounge areas, bar, and recently renovated rooms. Also convenient are the room service, the connected... More

I don't review every hotel I stay in, but I noticed that this hotel got poor reviews on Google, for some reason, so I thought I would say a few nice things about the hotel here, as I did not experience any of the problems people mentioned in other reviews. Like other reviewers here mentioned, this a very good, up-scale... More

We stayed in this hotel for two nights in September. The bed, pillows, and comforter are so comfortable that I found the brand tags and looked for them online. (You can buy them all online at www.shopmarriott.com). The room is large but the bathroom is small. The lobby is nice, and we ate twice in the hotel restaurant. (Quite good,... More

This is a real nice hotel. Stayed there for 5 nights on vacation. Staff was excellent and the folks in the concierge lounge were outstanding. One of the most comfortable beds we've experienced. Newly renovated rooms are real nice but some of the new furnishings aren't the most comfortable. Would have been a 5 star if you didn't have to... More

What a nice surprise to find a lovely & very comfortable hotel for my 5 day seminar. From the first booking phone call and throughout my stay the staff (restaurant, housekeeping, front desk, etc) were all friendly and helpful. Best of all was the free shuttle service. They took us anywhere within a 5 mile radius, this included Whole Foods,... More

I was really impressed with the Renaissance: Immaculate, friendly staff and great value for money. The beds and linens were of a high quality (for the room rate). Housekeeping seemed to pay special attention to detail - really clean room. All in all a good experience. I didnt really like the breakfast - that was the only thing that wasn't... More

We were there in early September with our two children for two nights for a local family event. The hotel is convenient to the surrounding suburbs, parking is easy, common areas attractive, room was nice and the rate was good. I'd give it five stars if the rooms had queen beds rather than two doubles and if housekeeping had been... More
