The suite was amazing! We got one on a high floor, and had the most incredible view! (And it has 2 bathrooms!!) The decor was GORGEOUS. It was build in an old bank, and they kept a ton of character while beautifully updating it with modern and luxurious touches throughout. The staff were all so friendly. We were able to...

We stayed overnight for work. The hotel is an old bank and its beautiful however my number one criteria for a hotel is cleanliness. I woke up to take a shower and find out that the bathroom had not been cleaned. There was a used bar of soap in the shower with a hair on it, a squeezed shampoo and...

Between Christmas and New Years, my wife surprised me with a night at the Marriott Renaissance, Cincinnati. As a lifetime Platinum Premier Elite member and usually with 150-plus nights a year with Marriott properties, plus a Marriott Vacation Club owner, I'm obviously a loyal brand member. Midweek and during the holidays, few rooms were reserved, so I thought there would...

In March of 2016 they wrecked my truck (second time by Marriott in a 5 month period). The hotel was great about getting the truck repaired, but Marriott in general was completely oblivious, and I was charged for parking including the day that they wrecked my truck! Marriott does not seem to care about the members that it has anymore....

I spent a lovely work week in this beautiful, classic property. The concierge lounge was modern and spacious. The room was roomy with coffee and a nice view of the river. It was a very enjoyable week!

I am a Marriott Platinum Elite member in addition to SPG, Hyatt and Hilton as I am on the road 4 days a week. This place is well maintained and I was lucky to get upgraded to a suite when I asked for a room with a bathtub. The lounge is decent but could be better if they had some...

Great hotel in an old bank building (common Renaissance modus operandi) with a lot of character. Front desk service was terrific. Got upgraded to a beautiful suite with nice furnishings. Very comfortable bed. Window coverings were awkward and cumbersome, especially in the bathroom. Bathroom sink and mirror were not well lit. Fitness center was very nice with many cardio and...
