We stayed at the Renaissance on a Wednesday night. It's a very nice hotel decor wise. I was also impressed by the front desk staff who were very friendly and chatty.
The room was average sized and well appointed. My husband was very impressed by the tech panel by the desk that would allow for a laptop to be hooked in and a movie viewed on the flat screen TV.
The bathroom was cramped and wasn't very nice considering the 4 star rating of the hotel. I would expect a glass shower or something comparable although the vanity top was granite. The bath tub was slow draining which resulted in me standing in ankle deep water by the time I was finished showering. I did not report this to the hotel since we were only staying one night.
I didn't like the bed--I thought it was too firm but my husband (who was staying with me) didn't complain. I wasn't too impressed by the foam pillows we requested either. I think I would go with the feather ones next time.
Overall our stay was pleasant...I got a reduced rate for our stay and would return again if I could get that rate a second time. But if it came down to paying full price, I'm not sure I would.
Overall our stay was pleasant.
