Don't even bother reading the rest of the reviews about this hotel! Spare yourself the agony that I went through there.
To start, I was stuck in the elevator since it would not even get to the floor wherein the room was located. I had to press the alarm button and was advised to swipe my room key through this credit card-like little machine just to open the door.
The room I was placed in (I checked in past 1 a.m. after a very tedious, long trip) had wires hanging down the ceiling. If there had been a fire, I would have burned like a toast, as there was no safe way out.
Some of the other doors in the other rooms, on the same floor (3rd floor, which is under renovation), were left unlock and partially open. Anyone could be hiding there and you might just not wake up alive the next morning.
The carpet was stained, dusty and dirty. There were junk under the reclining chair. I even found a pair of used car rugs under the bed.
The hotel's reservation desk representative was notified by phone twice of my late arrival to ensure that a room would remain reserved. Instead, I ended up being in a room straight from hell.
At 1 a.m., I was simply too exhausted to look for another place in which to sleep. Although I woke up alive, I was covered with huge, multiple, raised, reddened and painful bedbug bites from head to toe. One of my eye became so red from the bites that I feared I was going to end up septic.
Now, I will have disgusting scars throughout my body that would remind me of this extremely horrendous experience.
And, guess what, management tried all their might not to take any responsibilty nor accountability whatsoever.
But, that did not last long. I demanded for what was right and did not get charged for my stay there. I could have chosen a more punitive recourse, but I just wanted so badly to get out of that nightmare.
Never, ever again will I stay in a hotel with the name Marriott attached to it!
Horrible, horrible, horrible!
Stay away from the Renaissance by Marriott! Stay away!!!
