I stayed for 11 nights, and can confidently conclude that the Seattle Renaissance is not even in the same galaxy as “luxury.” The Seattle Renaissance Marriott is a shabby, shameless, incompetent Mess Shabby: the rooms are decent, but dated. The towels were frayed, the shower head installed incorrectly, and half of the treadmills in the gym didn’t work. The exterior of the building looks more like a prison than a hotel. Shameless: in the year 2023 Marriott is charging $15 per day for a decent in-room Internet connection, and won’t deliver “room service” food to the room without adding a $5 surcharge. The anemic guest services and in-room amenities are advertised as benefiting the environment, while every room service order is delivered in a plastic container, inside of a paper bag, with every possible plastic utensil and condiment regardless of whether they’re needed or not. They also frequently hand out water bottles because they know no one wants to pay $6 for the “world’s best” Fiji water they offer in the rooms. Incompetent: * The front desk promises to look into my issue with not being able to log into the Marriott app and contact me by the end of the day. That’s the last time I hear from them about it. * Out of roughly 20 room service orders, half either don’t arrive and have to be reordered, or do arrive, but are missing items. Food is mediocre, but not bad. The staff were friendly when delivering food a couple times, but usually just grunted and shoved the food at me before quickly walking away. * I have 5 packages delivered on various days. One package is delivered without me having to ask at the front desk and make several calls to track down the package. In almost every case, the front desk has the package after failing to find it the first time. * Employees are posted at the front door, but are usually talking to each other instead of helping or greeting guests. * Calling the front desk is hit or miss. A couple of times during regular hours no one even picks up the phone. Waiting a minute or more for someone to answer is common. * The front desk is unwilling to take orders the night before for breakfast despite the menu offering pre-orders. To give them some credit, the elevator issues described in other recent reviews seem to have been entirely fixed. I’ll be avoiding all Marriott properties when possible going forward solely based on this experience.

My check in with smooth, forgot the guy who did my check in but he was great! Tayvon at guest services was awesome as well! He was patient with all of my questions and very helpful. As well at the person who rides the elevator up and down. Don’t know her name but she had a great spirt! The rooms were clean and the building as well.
