Renaissance never fails me no matter where I go. This particular location is under construction so a bit noisy this time but I'm sure the renovations are going to add to this beautiful property. The EV chargers do not work. I had the call "Blink" to get a refund. So for you EV users please make sure you download the Blink app amd check the location before adding funds to your charge account. Other than that disappointment, everything her was awesome as always. Bathrooms and bed were super clean (black light tested), beds were comfortable and bedding was plush, the bathroom was super clean (always clean again), and hallways were clean and free of debris. Again super AWESOME place.

This is a wild 4 star rated hotel. I've been at many 3 star hotels with MUCH more to offer and friendlier staff. The location is what you make of it. If you like the hustle of downtown it's pretty cool. If you like to be able to easily find it and park, it's not cool. Hardly any signs outside. Better know beforehand which sides of the building have the parking garage because just circling the block is almost impossible. Ridiculous pricing for parking too compared to other large cities in the same region. The inside is nice. If you have a stroller or wheelchair, good luck getting in. Walk in the front and stairs only to get down to the lobby area. Staff was mediocre at best. Couldn't answer any real questions, like they were just reading off a script and couldn't/wouldn't interact. When we told them our coffee maker was missing pieces and the fridge wasn't working, we got an "okay, well there's a coffee shop right there and an ice machine" so definitely not helpful there. The rooms were very nice which is why this stayed a 2 star. The lack of food choices is wild too. Blah gas station looking sandwiches or room service. They offer conference rooms and hosting events but doesn't have a restaurant.... the lack of amenities, the attitudes of the employees, and crazy prices for everything, we will definitely stay somewhere else next time and have any other events at a different location.
