Whenever I come to Seattle with work I get to stay at the Renaissance. The hotel itself has really high international standards but what makes it one of the best hotel around the world is its staff. Everyone in the hotel is super friendly. I do travel a lot and I must say that in Seattle's Renaissance, they're one level... More

This place is a ten. I always stay here when when I'm in Seattle. I'm here often and travel to different cities every week. The staff is very accommodating and always takes great care of me. The rooms are clean and nice. They are currently being updated on some floors. If I had to be critical I would say that... More

I've stayed at this Renaissance on two occasions and both of them were great experiences. Nice rooms, great staff and a great location. On my first stay there was a note a the front desk, "National Lemon Cupcake Day" and they were giving away Lemon Cupcakes. On my second stay, I had to cut it short and leave early. They... More

We stayed at the Renaissance for two nights for the weekend of the Seahawks-Packers game. Overall, the hotel was very nice – the staff was very pleasant, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. No big complaints. It was also within walking distance to CenturyLink Park and Pike Plaza, as well as numerous restaurants. From a driving perspective, it was... More

Thank you for the opportunity to have you as our guest. I am sorry that you heard the freeway. We have now new windows on the eastside of the building that have been very well received by our guests. Those room now are definitely quieter than the once on the south side. $34, plus tax, for parking while not cheap... More

This hotel is a solid four-star and looks beautiful in both the public areas and rooms. Nice amenities and silent HVAC unit. We faced I-5 and slept okay because we live on a busy street, but fyi you can hear it. But the bed: I don't know how a 2-star bed made it into this 4-star room; stiff, springy and... More

Went to the Seahawks game this past weekend and had such a good time. Checked into our room on the 19th floor, went to the bar for a pre game drink and then went to the game. After the game, we had a quick bite and then headed off to bed. The bed was a king size one, and probably... More

I stayed here for a conference and enjoyed the rooms, location and amenities. The staff were very helpful and the location was a good distance away from downtown and from the baseball and football stadiums.

We had booked their Guest room with 2 double beds for our stay but the room was a bit on the small side for a family of 4. Our room was very clean and modern which included a safe, small fridge, coffee machine (no microwave). My wife particularly loved the Aveda toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, soap etc.).

I've stayed at many Renaissance, Marriott, Ritz & JW properties, but this is not one that I can recommend. Yes, the staff still has the anticipated Marriott hospitality and they are friendly and helpful. However, the rooms are sub-par, although I understand they will be undergoing a renovation soon. Additionally, there is construction on one side of the hotel, which... More

The hotel is clean and modern. The rooms are fairly quiet with good amenities. The bed and pillows are comfortable and the bathroom is a comfortable size. There is a good size shower and the toiletries are quite good. The iron is also better than other hotels with dry cleaning being a reasonable price. The food throughout the restaurant is... More
