Stayed here recently for a conference. Got a good deal by using Priceline and rolling the dice. The location is good for downtown Seattle. It was a tad rugged experience, though. The rooms / beds are nice and the hotel (while a bit dated) is fine. The $42 / day parking caught me a bit off-guard, though. Downtown parking in... More

I am a Marriott Platinum, and appreciate the fine hotels that the Renaissance brand offers around the country. Our recent stay at the Seattle Renaissance, however, was very disappointing. I won't say it is an awful hotel, and I recognize many others have and will in the future experience an enjoyable stay. To some degree it depends on what is... More

spent 5 nights at the renaissance hotel in Seattle - we wanted a hotel close to Seattle U and downtown and this filled the bill perfectly - didn't realize that Seattle was so hilly - if you want to stay in shape this is the city for you - the uphill climb from the waterfront is steep but doable all...

I have stayed in two Renaissance hotels in the last month, they were both great. Front desk staff kind and helpful. Extremely easy check-in and check-out. Nice buffet breakfast in the morning at Maxwell's on the 2nd floor. Clean and quiet, no slamming doors all night long! I would book a room here, if you are departing for Alaska on... More

The Renaissance is well situated to walk to many of the places of interest in Seatlle - the stadiums and old Seattle, the waterfront and Pike Market as well as the shopping areas downtown. A little stamina is required for the hike up Madison from the water, but gentler slopes are accessible heading from downtown. The room was a good... More

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
