The Renaissance Arts Hotel was good, but I felt that they were trying too hard. The rooms were decent and spacious. The location was perfect, as I was for work as part of the Essence Festival. The valet service needed an attitude adjustment. Chris was great, but the others were borderline rude when I was dropping off and picking up my vehicle. The way they greeted me was not what I expected. Definitely not living up to the Renaissance name. The hotel staff was very cordial.
