Spent 3 nights here in late June. Its hard to beat the location. Can walk or take the trolley anywhere and there is no need for a car. The main train station is just around the corner, lots of good places to eat within easy walking distance. The hotel itself is a fairly standard Marriott property. Its neat and clean, with a very friendly staff who are more than willing to help in any way. Not all the rooms face out, so if a view is important be sure and ask for one. The rooms are large by European standards and if you have children most can accommodate, which can be an issue in some locations.
Comparatively speaking, its a rather expensive property, but most major hotels in large cities are pricey. There are cheaper locations rather close that are nice, (for example The Convent), but all are more along the European style (smaller rooms etc). This is a good choice if you are looking for something a little more western.
The Concierge lounge was a nice size and had a good selection for both morning and evening, however at least while I was there they kept running out of things. They seemed a little understaffed.
Would I stay here again? Most likely yes. If you are someone who likes Marriott's, it is worth noting that the main Amsterdam Marriott is more central to the Museum district (Rijks, Van Gogh etc) and the sites in that area such as Heineken experience and the Taste of Bols. You can get there from the Renaissance but its a very long walk and its advisable to take the Trolley. Depends on what your desires are and what you would like to be close to.
