“The place to stay in Phoenix!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

The hotel is newly remodeled in and out - just beautiful. Loved the vintage architecture of the building & the trendy interior - somehow they made it work nicely.
The thing that makes this place very special is that the entire staff was/is OUTSTANDING! (you noticed I put it in all capital letters) If you want to stay at a place where the people that work there treat you as though you are their favorite person --> this is the place!! It is with genuine regard for their guests right down to the smallest detail. I really felt cared for in the best way.
The location is central to the downtown area which made shopping, bistros, restaurants, pubs (etc, etc) all in walking distance. Near the ASU campus, I realized later. It also made access to the surrounding cities (Mesa, Tempe, Scottsdale, & others) a short drive.

Vintage architecture is right! Our hotel was originally the Adams Hotel, built in the late 1800's. It's undergone several transformations, and our 'cheese grater' exterior was added in the 1970's - our windows actually open to let in the fresh air! Thanks for acknowledging our fantastic Ambassadors - they are genuine down to their socks! Please come back soon!

I was traveling on business and stayed at this hotel. The staff were wonderful, assisting me with directions and helpful tips on the area. In addition to that, I went off and left my iPhone charger. I called the day after I returned from the trip and told them about leaving my charger. It had not been turned in, but they went ahead and sent me a brand new iPhone charger via overnight mail. I was so surprised that they went above and beyond to send me a new charger when they had not been able to locate mine. Truly great customer service!

A new iPhone charger for you from us! How spectacular that our Ambassadors took it upon themselves to replace your lost charger! Does customer service get any better than that?? Thanks for taking the time to send your appreciation! Hope to see you again soon!

I stayed in this hotel over Labor Day Weekend this year (about a month ago) and I thought it was a great stay. But mediocre stays at two other hotels showed me that this place is a true gem. The staff was incredibly helpful. They answered every question I asked, actually anticipated the questions I was about to ask, and were empowered to immediately resolve the one minor billing problem I had. The hotel's billing policies and charges were explained up front, transparently, without any of those hidden incidental authorizations that some hotel chains often charge. I work as a customer service professional, and I was very impressed (not to mention delighted) with the superb customer service every staff member provided -- from the front desk to the bellhops and valets to the bartenders and wait staff. That alone is reason enough for me to return to this Renaissance. In addition, I switched my loyalty program away from one of the H-named competing chains to Marriott.

The rooms were very comfortable, well decorated, and of a good size. I can't emphasize "comfortable" enough, however. I usually have a sleepless night or two in a new bed, but here, I had a great night's sleep the first night. That is very rare for me.

My only minor complaint would be the lack of free wi-fi in the guest rooms. However, this was merely a small annoyance since the hotel supplies free in the lobby and an access code that can be used throughout the hotel. Once you log into the network, you're good to go.

I have never been to this restaurant but I seen a friend on Facebook telling everyone that there was some kind of event at the hotel and they were offering free samples of food/drink. I work in the downtown Tempe area and were surprised it was only a 15 min. drive. Upon arrival everyone was upbeat, friendly and extremely courteous. We walked into the hotel which was surprisingly gorgeous and then into the restaurant. There we were greeted by Bryon, I believe he was the manager of the restaurant. We have never felt so welcome and he made us feel like he had been waiting for our arrival all day! He seated us and ensured us (after seeing our work badges which I thought was a very observation) that we would have our lunch and be in and out of there in 45 min and he meant it. Our server Jackie was fantastic and everyone was happy, upbeat, and really attentive to us. I can't tell you how glad and refreshing it was that we decided to come into this restaurant. Bryon and his staff are phenomenal and the Marriott hotel has by far became my new lunch spot of choice! The food presentation was esquite as well as delicious!!! Kudos to this hotel and everyone should go in a take a try!!!

Yay! You were here for our Marketing Blitz during the week of September 24-28! Our restaurant, Marston's Cafe, is committed not only to serving the best food in town, but also guaranteeing you will be in and out in 45 minutes or your lunch is free! Bryon and the rest of the staff in Marston's are superior when it comes to making our guests feel at home! Hope you come back soon and often!

The refurbished rooms were nicely done and comfortable. The staff was attentive and focused on service. Pleasantly pleased. Suggestions for improvement is to provide free Internet access. The lemon water and availability of comp toothbrushes and shaving kit was appreciated

By far one of the best business retreats I've ever been on. The professional service extended to us by everyone working at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown was exceptional. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone scheduling a 'business outing'..if the conference room, hotel room and restaurant weren't enough, you're within walking distance to anything in the downtown Phoenix area. We are definitely going back next year!

Our staff of eight spent the better part of two days at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown. The staff went overboard in meeting all our needs and more. The board room they provided for us was the perfect place to sit together and plan. The rooms, outdoor patio, and restaraunt were perfect settings for casual conversation and indepth planning. Paige, the general manager, and her staff could not have been more hospitable for our team. Thanks for our most successful planning retreat!
