I normally stay in big casinos when I visit Vegas, but this time as I was looking for a cheaper alternative, I chose the Renaissance. I was a little nervous because I had never stayed there (or known of anyone else who had) but I must say I was very pleasantly surprised. It was definitely a nice change over the hustle-bustle of Strip Casinos. We were in a hospitality suite and the room was clean and spacious.
When we arrived late on a Saturday night, there was actually a problem with our booking (apparently hotels.com decided to charge us and then not make our reservation). However, even though the Renaissance was full for the night, the staff worked quite hard to make sure we were accommodated, even when another hotel refused to take us because they were full. I was definitely grateful for the efforts in making sure we were taken care of, and will stay there again in the future.
