I just completed a stay at this hotel over a two week period. I am loyal Marriott member and travel about 60% of the time for work. I would not recommend this hotel to business travelers. When traveling so frequently, it's the little things at the hotel which make the most difference. I was not given new toiletries on a daily basis. The hallway of my floor and my room always had a rusty, damp smell. The concierge lounge was not open on the weekends. The drinks in the lounge were not kept in a cold refrigerator. One evening when having dinner at the bar downstairs, our food took over an hour to be delivered. When we tried to order dinner before leaving the office so it would be ready when we arrived at the hotel, the staff refused to perform this service. Last, but certainly not least, the internet connection at the hotel was extremely poor. The service was so poor that on several occasions I could not access my work VPN. There was a hard wired connection on the desk for the internet, but it did not function in my or my colleagues rooms.
The staff at the front desk was friendly, however not overly helpful. The hotel was not poor enough so where we felt the need to change hotels. However, I will not be staying at this hotel in the future. There is a Hilton right down the street from the Renaissance that receives much better reviews and was suggested to us for our next trip.
I believe this hotel does quite a bit of business with travelers to cruise ships. I can see where staying at the hotel for one night would be feasible. However, I would not recommend the hotel for business travelers.
