Service was excellent and the rooms were very typical Renaissance styling. Beware of road noise on lower floors facing the main road. I was on floor 14 face the interstate and I thought I was staying at a motel 6 with all of the traffic noise. Bring white noise to help drown it out.

Great downtown location, friendly staff. Close to Seattle attractions. The rooms are a little small but I've travelled to Europe a lot so it's okay. Nice bar and restaurant area. Parking is available on site.

Visited Seattle for a pre-stop before my cruise to Alaska. I was also celebrating my 7th wedding anniversary. We booked from 7/9/14-7/11/14. Upon arrival, check in was smooth, I was early and was still able to check in. When making the reservations months early, I mentioned that it would be my anniversary. To my surprise, we received an upgrade to... More

I stayed at this hotel for 5 days on a business trip. I paid a state rate which is about half the usual rate so it was okay. However, if I had reservations at the $300 per night, I would have left. I love the Marriott brand and this hotel at this level is not acceptable. Nothing that several million... More

Renaissance is known for its clean rooms and courteous service and the one in downtown Seattle is no different. I generally come here for business meetings and it has an amazing set up to host large business meets. What I really like about this hotel is that major tourist attractions are close by. There are a lot of shopping options... More

We were very impressed with our room quality at the centrally-located Renaissance Seattle. We were able to walk from there easily to Seattle Center and Safeco Field. The rooms were well appointed and modern. The staff was friendly, especially in the restaurant. The servers remembered us each morning at breakfast and were very attentive. Would definitely stay here again.

I was allowed to check in early and very appreciative for that I was. Unfortunately, everything went downhill from that point on. The Marriott Renaissance Hotel is lacking professionalism in their front desk and concierge staff, I will only mention a few mistakes. Parking nightmare!!! My SUV (Ford Expedition) would not clear the 6’2” opening for their parking garage, although... More

Thank you so much for staying with us and for your review. I am sorry about the service you received at our hotel. While the garage does not fit oversized vehicles we should have offered you to valet your car offsite. I am very surprised the clerk did not make you this offer. I am very sorry that you very...

We arrived close to midnight after long airport delays. We were checked in quickly. The room was clean, modern, and had Aveda products. The best part was the room service. The attendant was friendly, courteous, and the food was great. Not typical room service fare. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and recommend staying there.

Very nice rooms and service, though I am not a huge fan of the sliding bathroom doors. I feel like I need more privacy, and felt almost as if I was in a public restroom where people were able to see through cracks on the edges of the door. The location I felt was a very nice distance from many... More

Stayed a few nights at the Renaissance Seattle. The hotel was nice, clean, friendly staff, etc. About what you would expect for a Renaissance in the US. The main advantage of this hotel is the location, far enough from the throngs of tourists, but just a short walk to pretty much everywhere you want to go. The bonus is the... More
