Between a Rock and a Hard Place
The Renaissance is a clean, well-run, mid-end hotel.
Upon arrival, the valet was attentive and prompt. The reception is set up in pods, it is a nice touch and makes check-in more personable. The reception staff also took the time to greet children in the party.
I asked for a room that was not adjoining, too many shrill children singing the "wheels on the bus" at 5am or snoring at 2am, and not next to the elevator or ice machine. With this criteria in mind, room 505 became mine. The room was not adjoining and was one room away from the elevator...yes...one room away. I was too tired to make a switch.
The rooms are tidy and clean and have Aveda products - a pleasant surprise.
The reason we typically stay in a hotel is because we do not have a place to sleep or choose to sleep elsewhere...we are in need of a bed.
The Renaissance has very hard, hard beds that are only surpassed by the hard, hard pillows. There were a ton of pillows on the bed and I squeezed each one in turn hoping for one envelope of puffy goodness in the crop. No luck. The bed felt like a sofa my aunt had had for over a century - you know the type, despite being foam, you sit and it is your bottom that conforms, not the sofa. Sleep was evasive due to the Minecraft angularity sandwich of the bed and pillow.
The in room coffee was a handy antidote for the sleep deprivation the next day. Internet was a steep $12.95 a day.
Ok property, nice staff...BYOP.
PS - I left a pair of earrings behind and will check back in in 2-3 days time on their whereabouts. Even after multiple calls, knowing exactly where I left them and calling immediately after. They are gone...
