As a part of the Marriott chain, the Renaissance has the same high standard of furnishings, fittings, and customer service that you would expect from a Marriott. It's a couple of blocks away from the strip - which probably means that it's a bit quieter and less 'hectic' than other hotels. I had a double room, from which i could see buildings on the strip, but also the hills in the distance. The outside pool area is located in a central quadrangle, surrounded on all sides by the hotel. It's fairly small and, because of the height of the hotel buildings, only really had sun for the first half of the day. That's great if you want to be able to go outside in the afternoon, without being subjected to the harsh Nevada sun but, if you want to lie by the pool and get a tan, you are going to have to start early in the day!
Breakfast was slightly disappointing - didn't have a huge amount of choice - I'd recommend going elsewhere for breakfast.
We had an evening meal in the hotel restaurant and it was excellent. Our steaks were cooked to perfection, and the accompanying side dishes and wine choices were great too.
All in all, a good standard hotel, at a reasonable price, with good access to the strip.More
