I stayed at this hotel twice in 6 months and my last visit was as good as my first one. Here is, more specifically, why I absolutely love this hotel:
After having stayed in many high-end hotels in Florida, I can say that the Renaissance Boca Raton is a real "easy luxury" hotel. No hassles, no costly parking, no nickel-and-diming. It just feels like home... a very beautiful and comfortable home in one of the nicest neighborhoods of Florida.
Always sparkling clean and beautifully decorated. Very cozy and spacious too. Beds are extremely comfortable. Even though I was a Hotwire customer, I have been given a very nice room with a king-sized bed (as requested) with a pool view. That tells you they really do not treat Hotwire/Priceline customers as second-class travelers.
This hotel features an alluring tropical pool and jacuzzi surrounded by a water cascade, royal palm trees and all kinds of beautiful flowers. The pool seems to be open 24h which is a big plus (I have never been disturbed by noisy night swimmers). There is also a nice pool bar that remains open until midnight or so. In-room wireless internet access is less expensive than in most hotels of the same category ($9.95 per day).
Boca Raton is undoubtedly one of Florida's most beautiful cities. The Renaissance is just a few steps away from the Boca Raton Town Center, a superb shopping mall featuring plenty of fine shops and great restaurants and bars (Grand Lux Café, Capital Grille, Cheesecake Factory, Stir Crazy, Blue Martini, etc.). It's also a short hop to Mizner Park, the wonderful scenic A1A and many public beaches.
Each and every staff member I met throughout my two stays at this hotel was smiling, kind and eager to help.
Easy, free self-parking. You just park on the hotel's terrain and don't have to deal with a time-consuming and costly valet parking service (although I think they offer that service if it's your wish to use it). In a world of high-end hotels that typically charge $20+ per day for parking, I think it's really appreciable to be able to park for free.
All in all, I really recommend this hotel and I will return, that's for sure, even if I have to pay their full price.
