Stayed 2 nights while at meetings in Vancouver. Renaissance is in a very convenient spot. The room decor is slightly dated, but it is comfortable enough. There was a fridge, which was very nice. Just down the street on the corner of Bute and Cordova, there is an "urban" supermarket, very convenient for snacking/breakfast needs. I got a yogurt there for breakfast, but it got frozen as my fridge was clearly over -cooling... A colleague complained that hers wasn't cold enough. I guess this is just a warning not to take anything for granted! The coffee/teamaker with a selection of drinks was helpful for this weary traveller. The fact that internet did not appear to be free was a bit of a shock, however, as it turned out the fee was waived at check-out. Why then it appears as if one was paying? Why unnecessarily get a guest a bit unhappy? My room had opening sliding doors - a window, really, but some fresh air was nice. There was no free plug by the bedstand for my iPhone - an automatic deduction...
The bell desk staff and everybody downstairs was just super nice - got great recommendations for dinner from Anthony, and lost of smiles from others - and they actually looked as if they meant it when they wished me a good day... It is a busy place though, and if you crave serenity, you only get it once in your room, but because of all the conventions, it may take a while before you get there... Free morning Globe and Mail was nice too.
