Weekend Getaway

A great hotel for us to just getaway for the weekend. Within walking distance of downtown Seattle with all the shopping, entertainment, sites, and people watching you would want. I had never stayed in downtown Seattle until the weekend and we can't wait until we go back. First class service and first class hotel with a great view of the city and surrounding areas in our room. Also, the visions lounge on the 28th floor is top of the line for service and view.

Newly renovated, good loc, close to hwy

Very close to nightlife and public market...easy walk (even in 4" heels). Conveniently located near I-5, one block from ultra modern public library. Rooms were well-apportioned, newly renovated, and clean! Parking is directly under hotel (and booking on Orbitz we got it free). We had a north facing room and had a lovely view all the way to Lake Union. Renaissance served us very well.

Outstanding in every way!

Restaurant was very good and cocktail hour offered great appetizers at a great price. Staff is very accomodating and location is perfect. Very close to bus routes that take you anywhere. A $5.00 taxi ride to almost every downtown attraction. Nice lounge with a beautiful view. Exceptionally quiet place for a busy hotel. Modern, clean, very happy with this choice.

Exceeded Expectations

Great location for any downtown events. Beautiful hotel but above all, the staff made this hotel a 5-star to us. The bar was open late for small meals after a long day. Perfect in all aspects. Beds were extremely comfortable and rooms spotless with very warm and comfortable decor. Will stay again!

Great Location and service

We had a great time in Seattle. We did everything within walking distance and took advantage of the bus and monarail when need be. Purchasing the CitY Pass Book saved us a ton of money and kept everyone in the family busy. I love Seattle.

Buy the City Pass Book Don't waste your money renting a car. The parking is outrageous and you can walk everywhere.

Renaissance Has Very Friendly Staff

We were there to participate in the Seattle marathon. We had Thanksgiving dinner in the 28th floor restaurant, and it was very good (among the three of us, we had all three entree choices). "Executive Hour" (happy hour) snacks and drinks also very good. 2nd floor restaurant was helpful with special pre-marathon food. Good place to stay!

Food at the Renaissance was very good. I'd also recommend the Flying Fish restaurant which has 12 oysters for $6 during happy hour on week days. We also liked Lola's, which serves lunch/breakfast until 3 in the afternoon. [...]
