My husband attends an annual conference at the Renaissance in Orlando - our daughter and I usually try to tag along for it and we extend our stay by a few days and make it our early Christmas present to eachother. We have done it two years in a row now and plan to do it again next year.
The staff is accomodating and friendly - gotta love the glass of champagne offered at check in! The hotel is beautiful, clean, stylish... the pool is amazing, warm and well maintained, the pool side food service pricey but well worth it (large portions, tasty and awesome service) there are 2 hot tubs, one splash pool for the little ones, 2 tennis courts, a playground, a bocci ball area, a basketball area, outdoor ping pong and billiards tables, a small arcade inside and a gift shop. There is also a spa but I have not yet have had the opportunity to try it... The rooms are roomy, beautiful and comfortable. Amazing beds and quality bedding!
If you are a Seaworld fan, you can't beat the location! Walked to Seaworld (right across the street), also walked to Aquatica (well worth it, by the way!) and Discovery Cove is also only a short walk away. If you are headed to other parks, there is a shuttle bus and the concierge is quite helpful in giving directions if you happen to miss it (like we did!!!)
The first year we went, we stayed there for the duration of the conference. Being big Disney fans, we chose to move to a Disney hotel afterwards and chose the Port Orleans, French Quarter. BIG MISTAKE! After the Renaissance, the P.O. felt like a cheap, outdated, Ramada... we stayed one miserable night and went back to Renaissance!!!
I HIGHLY recommend it: it's classy, clean and good value.... GO!!!
