“Peace of Mind in a Busy City”
Reviewed March 3, 2011

If you are looking for the place to stay in New York City, this is the hotel. I have stayed here on a couple occasions on business, and this recent stay upped the level of satisfaction. First off, the rooms are great and clean, comfortable beds, and in the king rooms, incredible showers.

Now the service. Check-in is always quick and friendly. My colleagues and I had a short walk to a restaurant one morning and it was pouring down rain. One of the bellmen was quick to get us three high quality loaner umbrellas to bring back whenever. The "Navigator" or concierge by the name of Erik I believe, cannot go wrong with the recommendation of a restaurant. And the staff in charge of guest relations are top notch.

So if you need that "Peace of Mind in a Busy City," this is the spot for you!

The hotel's location was absolutely perfect for bringing our two teenage daughters to NYC for their first visit. We only had an extended weekend to show our daughters the highlights of NYC. For what we wanted to do (landmarks, plays), and they wanted to do (shop), this was the place to be. The rooms are trendy, tastefully decorated, very clean. Manny at check-in and the Navigators (concierges) were very helpful. The hotel itself has a boutiquey, intimate feel. The R Lounge is the highlight of the hotel with the most unbelievable view (180') of Times Square. Overall, we were extremely satisfied with our stay and would definitely return.

From the attentive (but expensive) valet, to the courteous check-in staff, helpful concierge and clean room, this property was perfect. This property is located in the Theater District and close to several different subway lines.
The room was spotless and the quietest hotel room I have ever been in. No noise from the hallway or busy street below was heard inside our 21st floor room. I loved the Aveda products placed in the bathroom.
We would stay here again.

This hotel is right in the thick of things in Times Square. The street-level lobby is just for check-in, but the upper lounge area is very comfortable with modern decor, plenty of seating and free Wi-Fi.

Rooms: A good-size room; a typical Marriott feel with a modern twist. An efficient work area had room for spreading out. The flat-screen tv was large and worked well. Beds were very comfortable. Bathroom had a large vanity area with plenty of room and a decent shower.

Bar: we spent some time in the bar. The food was really good, which was a surprise. Drinks were ok. The view is fantastic - three sides of the bar are glass and overlook Times Square.

I would recommend this hotel, especially if you are seeing a show or shopping in the area.

I always have high expectations and expect value for money; the "R" did not disappoint. The location is nothing short of unbelieveable; it is trendy and funky (no tour buses pulling up here), great staff, the suite I upgraded to was immaculately clean and comfortable. My 19yo daughter and her friend loved it too! The R Lounge's view is nothing short of amazing. A special thank you to Oscar at reception. Would definitely stay there again (um let me rephrase that - I will stay there again, preferably on New Year's Eve)

My husband took me to NYC for my 30th birthday as I'd done for him a couple years ago. We chose the Rennaisance Times Square for its location and enjoyed the hotel. The decor was very artistic and the staff friendly. The hotel was clean and comfortable as well. The only downside was that the walls were quite thin and on our last night we had folks staying in the room next to us and their chit chat made sleeping difficult. All in all this was a nice hotel and reasonably priced for the size of the room, quality of the hotel and its location.
