“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Stayed here for two nights for a business conference and had a great time. It was in a great spot, we walked almost everywhere. Only used the car once to visit Ohio City. They helped us pick out great spots to eat and sent up a fridge for our leftovers free of charge. Would stay here again.

In full disclosure we stayed at a no frills motel the night before, making this hotel extremely enjoyable. The room was huge and the beds were very comfortable. We walked to the baseball park from here with no problem. The cool street with restaurants is also a few minutes away. One of the men in our group really loved that the casino was a 3-minute walk as well. Again, great location. We had no problems with the AC or any other amenities. Our room had a view of the Courtyard with the gym and pool downstairs, neither of which we used. Great rate, would stay here again. The only con was the late check-in time we had.

KristyP, thank you! It sounds like you had a great time while visiting. The area you mention with the restaurants and brick walkway is the East 4th Street area - always a good choice for dining and fun. Thanks again and we hope to see you again!

We stayed at the Renaissance with 3 other couples as we were celebrating two birthdays. Excellent location, hotel is beautiful, beds are excellent, but....3 of the four rooms were down one hallway and everyone had same complaint on Sunday morning...didn't sleep well, room was too hot. We tried adjusting the very old AC/Heater but it wouldn't go cold. First experience like this in this hotel as we've stayed here previously and had no issues.

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms in the 970 or above.

Keith, thank you for visiting. We apologize for the problems you experienced with the AC system. As you are aware, our beautiful historic property was built in 1918 and particular quirks such as our HVAC system, which does pose some issues for us, do exist. We work diligently to offer a comfortable environment for our guests and are always improving our system. Once again, we apologize and hope that you will return again in the future.

The public areas are luxurious and impressive. Our room was spacious and quiet because it was on the inner atrium of the hotel. We enjoyed our stay partly because of the history of the place and also because of its location. The central Cleveland area is looking very smart now and there are lots of bars and restaurants full of people. We also ate in the Hotel bar - quite pricey but fresh and tasty with generous servings.

My client booked me in to this property for one night. I didn't even know it was a marriott until I checked in. I'm a frequent guest with Marriott so it was a welcome plus.

The good: The property in convenioently located downtown, with lots to do nearby (even though I didn't get to take advantage of it). It is a beautiful historic property, espeically the lobby areas, and I love historic properties. Room was decent size and nice. Bed was very comfortable. Nice amenities. Had dinner in the lobby bar and it was very good. The people, as with all Marriott properties, were great.

The bad: The temperature in the room was erratic. Either it was hot or cold. I suspect with an old HVAC system. I about ruined a shirt with the iron that was in the room, which was critical as I was there for an interview. When turned flat all the water ran out. I called for anotehr one and it was okay but not great. The ironing board needed to be replaced as well. Probably not critical for most, but when you need to look great, it makes a difference.

Still small problems. I would gladly stay there again.

Our experience here was very good to excellent. Room was perfect and our bath was fine. Some of the fixtures could be considered outdated I guess, but I was not disappointed at all. I thought the location was excellent with access to shopping, restaurants, bars, movies and the sporting venues. The staff were excellent as well. If I return to Cleveland I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

The public areas are rich, spacious, and luxurious, and the service was great at registration and concierge services. Traditional decor in the accommodations, but the bathroom could definitely use a facelift. Keep in mind that the same, convenient downtown location also comes with downtown traffic noise - at all hours. The street cleaners late at night sounded as though the vacuum was right inside my room - and I was on the 12th floor!
There are only a few machines in the fitness center. The pool is quite small and not available for an early-morning or evening swim.
This hotel is a nice 10-minute walk to the convention center and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where you'll pass by beautiful churches and monuments typical of "northern" downtown areas.
