4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

First impressions are everything and after reading reviews and talking to staff in the phone, I was genuinely worried that my stay would be less than satisfactory. I will first detail the bad, as it is what I was greeted with before getting into my hotel room (and almost had me consider paying hundreds more to stay at another hotel).... More

We stayed here for one night before heading to a family wedding on one of the islands off Seattle. It is perfectly located about 20 minutes from the airport and you can walk everywhere in the city from here. We did walk everywhere! It's up a very steep hill but great to walk off the amazing food you will have... More

Stayed here on a recent visit to Seattle. Perfectly located for walking around Seattle, but also close to public transport and highway for transport out of the city. The views from the concierge lounge on the top floor made breakfast a very enjoyable meal. No outside noise disrupted my visit. Rooms facing east get a beautiful sunrise and views of... More

I've stayed at this hotel for a short stay(1 day) and I liked it... Not noisy, walking distance to the good places and its staff is always looking for opportunities to please you ... A will definitively come back... Rooms are clean and tidy... And, typical marriotts, linens are excellent!!!

I was very excited to stay at the Renaissance. Our check-in was smooth and the concierge and bell hop was also welcoming. Our room was on the 5th floor with a view of the construction. There was some noise in the evening but luckily it stopped after 11 p.m. Our room was satisfactory. I expected something "nice" like the pictures... More

I was worried after booking this hotel, with all the reviews about noise and construction. I should not have worried at all. The room was great - clean, a good size, looked recently renovated. It was within walking distance to our show at the Fifth Street Theatre. And it wasn't noisy at all! Staff were excellent - helpful and directed... More

Thank you for your business and your great review. While we do have construction going on next door, the noise level has been very tolerable as there is no construction going on during the night time. If you do need to sleep during the day time we recommend a room on the eastside of the building. I do hope you... More

Getting to the hotel took a bit of navigation. It is on a one way street and there is construction around the block. The hotel is lovely. Clean and modern. Our room was that way as well. Very comfortable and we were in the front of the building overlooking the construction but you couldn't hear it. Everyone was helpful and... More

Spent 2 nights here and the property is very well maintained. There is some construction going on to the west so I would recommend a high room to the north for best views. We were in 2016 which was very nice. The property is well located for downtown. If you are not walking back up from Pikes Market take a... More

Professionalism, service, and quality one would expect from a higher level hotel brand! I had a company function for 30 people at this property last week and used their catering services for a 3-day banquet/meeting hall. The catering services were top-notch. The entire experience with Catering Services was outstanding. The menu variety for each of the 3 days was wonderful,... More

Very nice hotel...room was clean and reasonably spacious. While the hotel was in downtown, it wasn't really in the exciting heart of downtown. However, it was less than a 10 minute walk to any of: the convention center, Pike's Place Market, shopping district, the waterfront, and Pioneer Square. So, it was actually very well situated if you wanted to explore... More
