A nice hotel, located in a place where you can walk, talk, dine, and feel homey. Courteous staff, in reception and in other services areas. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Starbucks Coffee is the land mark of the hotel :)

Took my son and his friend on weekend trip. Hotel was clean and nice. Lots of construction around but it didn't bother us. Location was good and we used Uber quite a bit when we weren't walking. Would have gotten free wi-fi as a Marriott member, but we booked through price-line, so no deal. All in all a good stay.

Stayed at the Renaissance Seattle hotel for a short weekend. The front office staff including Tonja were amazing on giving me and friends recommendations on where to eat. Our rooms were connecting per request. I loved how up to date the rooms were. The location of the hotel was perfect, it was close to the famous market, shops, and other... More

We stayed for 2 nights. Check in was quick and the staff was very helpful and friendly. We had a room on the 20th floor. It had an amazing view of the city! The room was well appointed - it was a corner suite with a small sitting room with pull-out sofa & desk, bathroom and bedroom. The room and... More

Just spent 4 nights here and have to say it is a great hotel. My rewards status got me access to the Club Lounge where I found excellent Starbucks coffee and a great morning and evening food spread. They have a nice restaurant downstairs and a fitness center available for those who want to keep their routine up. It is... More

I recently stayed for a week at the Renaissance. Very good hotel, nice staff, friendly and helpful. Here's what I liked: they have a lounge on the top (28th) floor that serves a free breakfast to gold & higher rewards members. They had a nice variety of hot and cold food, Starbucks coffee, a latte machine that makes Starbucks lattes,... More

First off there is no fan in the bathroom and the door is a slider that doesn't seal so very little privacy. The hotel is ok and the staff is ok but it's definitely not a luxury hotel. You are better staying at the Mayflower or the Warwick which are cheaper and easier to access. This hotel sits in the... More

I had not stayed in the Renaissance Seattle Hotel for almost 20 years, but business took me to downtown Seattle, so I made a reservation there. This is a hotel with a lot of history. In fact, I believe it was called the Madison Hotel at one time before Renaissance bought it. There are very few traces of its ancestry... More

I stay in over 100 nights a year in various Marriott properties around the world, and normally I love trying out different hotels. But after my 3rd stay now at the Renaissance Seattle Hotel, I am just going to keep coming back here when in the area.
