“Big Disapointment !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2006

This is a lovely hotel with a beautiful lobby and restaurant, and the rooms are tastfully decorated. As for cleanliness, they get an F, the bathroom floor was dirty with toenail clippings and hair, and there was something sticky on the counter...next to one of the beds there was a glass with cigarette butts and ashes and a pair of dirty underware (which my 4 yr old found) there were no kleenex and only one roll of toilet paper which we ran out of in the middle of the night. It's a shame that such a beautiful and pricey hotel has left my family and I with the desire to never return.

Stayed here because it was the location of our conference. Room was clean, and furnished OK. No microwave or mini-fridge, which was a suprise. No safe, either. If budget roadside hotels can provide free wireless internet, why does this expensive place need to charge $11.95 per-day (plus tax), and no wi-fi in-room? Valet parking is $21.85 per-day also, and beware if someone comes in with a fancy car...all four valet boys will ignore everyone else for a while while they ooooh and ahhh over the hot rod. The bed looks great with it's white fluffy comforter...a trend in luxury hotels now...but the pillows were strange. Three very larg SQUARE pillows, that were too thick to lay on, and three TINY flat pillows that reminded me of beanbags. Not very comfortable. Four king pillows would have been better.

This hotel almost meets the RENAISSANCE quality.... The bathroom tiles are really funky old gray and stained grout on lower 2 feet of tiles. I informed the manager and he said that they were scheduled to be replaced soon......GOOD!!!

The Bedding was wonderful and the cleanliness satisfactory.

We had breakfast in the restaurant and it was very good. Service nice.

The carpet in the rooms and hallway floors seemed outdated with the Renaissance standard.

We stayed at this hotel for three nights when we were in town for my brother's wedding. The location is great. Downtown restaurants and bars are within easy walking distance. The room was very nice and clean. They had new bedding and it was very comfortable. However, we went down to the lobby bar around 5:00 and it was not open. In fact, it was not open the entire time we were down there, even though the hours said it was open until 11:00. Likewise the Bridge bar was supposed to be open until 11:00, but closed at the discretion of the bartender, which was 10:00 on Friday night. We wanted to go to the lunch buffet on Saturday, but they did not have the buffet that day. However, the food we ordered was very good--the BBQ sandwich in particular. Overall, service was ok. The guy at check-in was very rude, but the rest of the staff were nice. I recommend staying at the Renaissance if you are going to be hanging out in the downtown area.

We stayed at the Renaissance in a corner room in March 2006. The bathroom was huge and well appointed. The only problems were some mildew on the tile grout in the shower and around the counter faucet. The bed was very comfortable and the linens were nice and fluffy. The carpet was a bit worn in places. The closet wasn't in a user friendly location. It was located in a small hallway as you entered the room and the bathroom was on the other side of the room. This was a bit inconvenient for getting dressed. We had the two for breakfast promo and wished we hadn't wasted the extra money for breakfast. The buffet food was greasy, lukewarm, and the choices were minimal. We were told breakfast was until 11:00, when entered the restaurant at 9:45 and were told the buffet ended at 10:00. So, we were rushed to get our food and had to get everything we wanted at once because there wasn't time to go back for any additional items. The omelet station actually closed precisely after the our requests were completed.
The hotel location was great. We were within walking distance of everywhere we wanted to go. There are many options for food and drink in the hotel. The staff was wonderful. An emergency required us to check out a day early, which we thought would be a hassle over rates, etc.., but it was smooth and effortless. We would definitely stay again.

And the Renaissance wins!!!

Let's face it, Opryland is overpriced. We checked out after one night and drove downtown to find a place to stay near the Ryman.

The Renaissance is the perfect location.

The beds were comfy and our room was quiet. Clean. An enjoyable stay.

Walked to the Ryman for the concert. Great!

Would also come back to stay and be able to walk to the Gaylord Entertainment Center to see the Predators (when the Ducks are in town of course!)

Recently stayed in the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Nashville, Tennessee as a leisure get away for my wife and myself. This hotel on many travel websites is listed as a 4 star hotel. In no way should this hotel be rated better than a 3 star hotel.

After requesting a king sized bed before traveling, we arrived later (around 10:00 pm) and were told that there were no king size rooms left. We were put in a room which had two double beds. This was fine but was disappointed to start the trip off. They did move us to a king size bedroom the next morning which was fine. Beds were confortable and clean and the hotel was fairly quiet. The bathrooms were simply poor. The sink in room number 1 was stopped up, the shower in BOTH rooms had brownish "mold" on the tile, and the toilet in room number one leaked causing it to run all night. The sink and toilet were understandable and most likely confined to my rooms but having mold in both bathrooms concerned me.

The extra qualities you expect from a 4 star hotel were just not there. The hotel was "very average is what I am trying to get across. Nothing in this hotel will make you say "WOW" and nothing will make you so disgusted that you will leave. A decent hotel with average quality rooms and service. Upkeep was average as well.

Parking on weekends was just 4 dollars per day (no in and out). This hotel was in a good area downtown and you could walk to all attractions downtown easily.

Other hotels to consider downtown before booking this would be the Hilton, Sheraton and the Marriott Courtyard Downtown.
