For a hotel built in 1918 this place is very well maintained. Complete with modern upgrades and a friendly and professional staff. The style of the hotel despite it's age has the class and elegance you'd expect from Renaissance. I had a room over looking the pool on the 3rd floor. I was a great view with a walk out... More

I was in McAllen for a business meeting and stayed here on the recommendation of a friend. I just loved it! So relaxing and a real oasis in McAllen. All of the staff was outstanding. They moved me to a better room because as a female traveling alone I wasn't comfortable with a shared balcony situation. Thank you! The bar... More

Marriott has a section of hotels they give the "Renaissance" label to. This is the second such hotel we have stayed in during the past couple of months and both seemed to be wanting to be something they cannot achieve and that is five start ratings. I was staying at this location on points and at least in my mind... More

I was in the Valley for work. The parking garage circular drive is a bit terrifying, and it took me a while to figure out where to go. My room was fine, although it was long and narrow and dark and smelled funny. I slept well, though. Make sure to ask for a room on the side away from the... More

Realistically, this is a 3-3.5 star property, but I have given it the benefit of the doubt since it is clearly the best hotel in Hidalgo County (McAllen/Edinburg), Cameron County (Brownsville and Harlingen), Starr County (Rio Grande City) and the remaining counties of the Rio Grande Valley. The hotel is "historic" which has its advantages (including balconies on the interior,... More
