A friend and I stayed at the Renaissance for her birthday and we were wowed originally by the valet entrance and the helpful bellman. Truly, the only downside of the hotel is the bathrooms, as they do need some work. The rooftop pool was nice, particulary at night and you are in walking distance to quite a few restaurants and the bus station. Access via boat to the private island was an excellent touch, as we enjoyed escaping away to sunbathe with the flamingos. I would stay again if I found a deal, as the service was exceptional.
