We wanted a hotel close to Sea World so the Renaissance was in a perfect location (it's walking distance to Sea World).
Check-in gave us surprise by offering us a glass of champagne (or sparking wine) a truly nice touch. The staff were also friendly and accommodating. Once we we headed to the room I was struck by the 70's / 80's interior. I'm sure the Renaissance was state-of-the-art pad back in 1984 when it was built. Today it looks a dated.
The room was good. Plenty of space for everyone. The bathroom was fine although the toilet and washbasin are not separated which can hold up morning proceedings!? I was also surprised the wireless internet was $15 per night - far too expensive for 2013! The parking is also expensive at $16 per day (ouch)!
Overall a nice, but not great, hotel ideally located next to Sea World.
