The Renaissance Times Square is a fine hotel consistent with the Marriott/Renaissance brand. Consistents with most reviews, visitors looking for the maximum Times Square tourist experience will love the location. As a business traveler looking for simple in and out efficiency, the location is a mess due to the heavy traffic and conjestion which added 10-15 minutes for each pick... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Stay here often and had a bad experience this time. Staff was quite rude and unhelpful. For being a platinum member they really don't care about you much. There are other Marriott brands in New York I'd stay at first. This hotel is always loud- not from the outside but inside. They do not care if guests are drunk and... More

If you are in New York for a few days this is the hotel for you. It is right where you want to be in New York City. With lights, and action all around you as of course - it is in Times Square. The hotel is right by the "Red Steps" and within walking distance to almost everything if... More

I have stayed at this property for years and it is very good. The rooms are a little small compared to the Marriott Marquis however the hotel itself is quaint as it relates to the rooms. A smaller and cozy hotel with a lot less traffic. Recently I found the service to be lacking as it related to my previous... More

While it wouldn't seem like it on the surface, this hotel was really family friendly. They went out of their way to cater to the kids, even sending cookies and juice up to the room free of charge. The location cannot be beat. It is right at the edge of Times Square. I'd highly recommend this location!

The location of the Renaissance Times Square cannot be improved--it's right in the heart of the action for business or pleasure. The staff has been very helpful & cordial. Beds are super-comfortable, with nice linens. Great views!! Room service food (and the speedy service) was excellent!! Highly recommend this hotel!!

We stayed for two nights and it was fantastic. Lovely room looking out to time square - but quiet ( we were on a high floor) looking across to Hersey World. Had drinks in the bar that looks straight out to TKTS. Drinks where reasonable priced and service was good and appeared child friendly ( we were only a couple... More

An amazing hotel with amazing staff. Everyone was really helpful. Its 20 seconds or less away from Times Square. Everything is pretty much on your doorstep with easy access to every other part of the city. A lot of places are walking distance from this hotel. The rooms are clean and tidy and the beds are very comfortable, on arrival... More

A great hotel right in the heart of the city. A minute or less walk to the middle of time square. A few steps out to the left are the tour buses. Our room was large and comfortable the beds and pillows were to die for. A two minute walk is also a great New York Diner. I found all... More
