We stayed here, not only because I am a Marriott Gold Elite member but also due to the other wonderful reviews.Yes, there are guests that will find faults but I found none...except for perhaps the $26 parking fee but you have to expect that when there is no other parking. I have paid much more in Philadelphia and the DC area. Upon arrival, we were greeted very nicely by the valet staff and asked if we needed help with our luggage. We didn't as we we only had a roller bag and backpack each. The front desk was courteous and very friendly. Our room was ready and it was one of the rooms with a view of the State House. It was very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable with the best pillows that i have ever slept on. Since we arrived on a friday and had a late departure on Sunday....all we needed was 1 day of maid service...and that was done in a timely manner. I was impressed that I had received an email asking if I would like a later departure time. I don't know if they asked because I was on a special "marathon rate" and thought that I might need a little more time....and I did. What a big help it was to not have to hurry to check out. Thank you Renaissance DTS! Valet service was always on the ball . When I called for the car....by the time I came out, it as there.
The hotel is within walking distance of the Riverwalk, Federal Hill with it's numerous Italian restaurants and the Providence Mall which is just a block away.
For me, it was very convenient to the start and finish of the Rock n Roll marathon...no need to get up at the crack of dawn to catch a shuttle and such a short walk back to the room after running in the poring rain.
I must apologize to the management for the puddles and slippery floors that were caused by the runners. We just couldn't avoid bringing the weather inside with us. However, the staff was there mopping the floors and trying to keep them dry so that falls could be prevented .
Thank you Renaissance for a wonderful weekend stay.
