Not up to usual standards for a Rennaisance hotel

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: Room was quiet.
Cons: The hotel needs updating. And the security for guests needs to be fixed so that people aren't given keys to the same room.
Location: Decent location downtown Seattle. Close to the freeway, shopping, etc
Lobby was small and very loud with a group of people in it. Room finishes were very tired, with carpets that were ragged on the edges and cabinets that were scratched and not maintained. Felt like a very old hotel. Parking was unattended and over capacity, with cars parked in numerous "no parking " areas, including the traffic lanes of the ramps between levels. To top it off, we laid down for a nap upon check in and within the first hour had two other guests open the door to our room having been given keys to the same room! Breakfast buffet and parking are way overpriced.

"Staycations"

Posted Aug 14, 2014
I live in Seattle and like to stay in hotels downtown on occasions. Ive stayed in particular hotels here more than once but this was my 1st time to stay here. It was a really good experience and I enjoyed the peacefullness. The only thing I was disappointed in was when I went to the restaurant around 7:00 pm or so, to order a drink and some food, was that the wait staff seemed slow and it wasnt busy. I asked the server if they were short-staffed and she said no. It took approx 30 minutes just to get my drink and a water. I wasnt in a hurry, but it was a bit disappointing. Other than that, my room was comfortable and the hotel staff was quite congenial. Thank you, Jeffrey

Room was small and not very modern.

Posted Aug 14, 2014
Pros: Location is good. Staff was friendly.
Cons: The quality of the rooms.
For 400 bucks a night, I would expect a lot more. The room was small. There was nowhere convenient to plug in my laptop and phone near the bed. The bathroom was small, with dated fixtures. The bathtub was tiny.

Impeccable consistency of the Marriott hotels

Posted Jul 20, 2014
Pros: Everything! Room cleanliness, bed comfort; predominantly, the great service!
Cons: Room temperature/thermostat function, particularly for West facing rooms, which tend to heat quickly in the Summer time
Location: Walking distance to nice restaurants, shops;close proximity to dining with ocean view
Stayed at hotel for three nights during a business trip. Had added the third night after the initial reservation. Upon arrival, staff was more than courteous and willing to consolidate both reservations, so as to avoid changing rooms mid stay. My room was exceedingly hot and adjusting the thermostat did not seem to make a difference. Staff sent maintenance immediately, but since this did not have the desired effect, I requested a room change. Staff member (Tanya) was polite, helpful, and extremely accommodating. She promised me she would try her best to assign me a different room. 10' later she had all this arranged, sent another staff to exchange room keys with me. Grateful -and surprised!, she was able to "work her magic", since the hotel was booked at capacity due to an onsite conference

Good location, within walking distance to shopping

Posted Jul 12, 2014
I was initially disappointed with front desk staff but when she realized I had booked a room she was nicer. We booked a king, corner room suite. The room was spacious, bed comfortable and view amazing. The furniture could be replaced, was well used and chipped. Need to touch up scuffs around room on walls and doors. For a almost $500 a night you would expect it to be pristine and it was not. Also was very disappointed that it was dusty. The side tables, desk and phones. Overall we had a great time but will probably not book again.

Weekend in downtown Seattle

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: location
Chose the Renaissance due to its close proximity to the downtown area...and it is close! Took the shuttle from the airport ($31 ROUND TRIP.... Definitely the way to go)...everything downtown is walking distance...restaurants, Pike market. Art museum, ferry terminals...great jogging along the Puget sound)..no car is needed... The hotel is clean and modern with extremely helpful staff. I lost a pair of glasses when I was there and they found them and sent them to me back home for no charge....a very nice gesture on their part. My only recommendation is to get a room away from facing the freeway....even though they have "noise proofed" the rooms that face the freeway...it is still noisy in those rooms. They were happy to accommodate my request for a room the looked downtown (away from the freeway and the noise) which made the whole weekend very nice. I would definitely go back if they opportunity come up. Great place in a great city..

Nice Hotel

Posted Jun 24, 2014
Good overall experience, hotel location is good in the middle of downtown, close to Peer 66 to give us easy access to the cruise ship on the day of departure.

Pros: The bedding actually looked and felt clean.
Cons: For the amount people pay to stay here, have the bottled water in the room complimentary instead of selling it for $3.50 for a random brand.
Front desk call wasn't very knowledgeable or professional when it came to the hotel, and me asking questions. For the amount I paid, I expected a nice room and the one I received was disappointing.

Great for quick weekend stop

Posted May 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
Stayed here for a quick visit with friends in Seattle while on the West Coast. Although is was no close to the 'happenings' downtown (like the market) or close to the vibe of Capital Hill, I was really happy here. Comfortable room and bed. Great workout center - better than most hotels I stay at. Fresh brewed Starbucks in the lobby in the AM (you have to purchase), and a Starbucks store two blocks away that opens at 5:30AM for early birds like me. One thing to note, Seattle is a hilly place and this hotel is located in a fairly steep part of town. Getting onto I5 to the airport is a breeze. The hotel is next to the highway but the noise isn't bad at all.
