Historical Traveller Reviews of Renaissance Times Square Hotel

The last secret of New York

from Schlossturm
We have been to the Renaissance New York Hotel on Times Square in April 2004.
Outside is the hectic of the greatest place in town - the Times Square.
Inside there's silence and everything is comfortable.
The doormen and concierge know how to serve their customers.
I'll return to New York - and I'll return to the Renaissance.

P.S.: For Europeans is it easier to pronounce "Renaissance" in the right way. So, if you're from Europe or Canada and take a taxi to the hotel, try to pronounce it in an american way.

Great Times Square location. Location, location, location!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We did a Mother's Day trip to NYC in May 2004. I picked this hotel after reviewing the comments on this website and I must agree, this is a top notch hotel, esp. for the price and location. Right in the middle of Times Square. It was extremely easy to find and always convenient when walking to sight-seeing locations. The restaurant in the hotel provides an unbelievable view of Times Square. The hotel staff was wonderful. Easy check-in and checkout. No problems at all. Room size was good and cleaning service was great. Beautiful view from my 19th floor room. Everyone in my group was impressed at the hotel and the price. I def. will stay here again!

Everything was perfect except the bed and pillows

from A TripAdvisor Member
We arrived around 1 pm and were immediately offered a room. We always look at the room first. We requested a room overlooking Broadway. Big mistake UNLESS you go higher than 15th floor. The huge, market quotes ticker on the Morgan Stanley building raced by continuously. We then asked for a room on 7th Avenue. It wasn't ready until 3:00 pm which was check-in time. We looked at that room which was an end room which didn't have a full side-to-side view so we asked for another. The third had a great, unobstructed view on the 25th floor overlooking 7th Avenue. (They do a have several rooms facing Times Square but they cost more and have obstructed side-to-side views.) The windows are really large. The room itself was sort of dark and cave-like, about 350 square feet, large closet, normal Marriott furnishings except for the bed which was cheap and hard. Don't stay here if you want a comfortable bed. The pillows were really small and cheap as well. We asked for and received four more. The bathroom was beautiful, elegant marble tile and a soaking tub. Everything was very clean. Service was excellent, friendly and helpful. Foley's restaurant is a must for the best-in-the-city Times Square view. Breakfast was delicious and well prepared. Location is fabulous, right in the heart of Times Square which is safe and bustles 20 hours a day. Perfect if you have theater tickets. You have to take an elevator to the lobby and another to your floor. No problem because they are fast and available. We recommend for location, cleanliness, friendliness, view, window size, closet size, bathroom elegance. We do not recommend for sleeping comfort.

very nice hotel!

#1 Place to Stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
I did extensive research on where to stay because it had been many years since I had been to NYC. I can, without a single doubt, say that The Renaissance is one of the best--if not the best. Everything is perfect....location, comfort, quality, staff. Subway station is a few steps away. Theatre's are a short walk. Many restaurant choices close by. Concierge was friendly and knowledgeable. My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer!

t think of a better place to stay!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Renaissance was absolutely wonderful. The rooms were spacious and the staff was unbelievably courteous. The concierge was a huge help for people who have never been in NYC. Most polite and he even got us the connection for David Letterman tickets. I don't know if there is a better location or a better hotel in NYC!!!

stay here!!!!!!!!

from luvnyc76
This was our first time to nyc, and i was very very worried about picking a hotel. I read the reviews and we chose the renaissance. the location could'nt get any better. the rooms were clean and smelled great. the bathroom was great, loved the marble. everyone was great, they even let us do a late check out @ 2:00. everything is walking distance. so if you are going to stay in nyc try the renaissance.

Perfect Perfect Perfect Location and wonderful Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is in the perfect location! It is within walking distance to all the famous tourist sites! Very fun to be in the center of it all!
No need to spend money on cabs because everything is so close and subway stations are conveniently located nearby. The service is excellent--the concierge knew directions to every place I wanted to go.
Everyone is helpful and nice. The porters (bell hops) were great help!
The only, and I mean only downers are that the rooms are a little small, and the beds are a little firm, but the location and great service make up for it all! I will definitely be back.

s Eve

from susanderek
We stayed here for 5 nights over the New YEar period 2002/2003. The room was great - even for two adults and two older children. Total silence at night despite the location. Quick stroll to Central PArk, Rockefeller, RAdio City, Plaza etc and quick subway links to everywhere else! New Year's Eve saw us nipping in and out into the centre of the crowd thanks to special hotel passes - some people had waited since mid morning for such a view!

Great visit

from Dudley UK
This was our second visit to New York.We stayed at the Renaissance for five nights from 7.12.2003.We found the hotel to be excellent,the location is superb with all the action of Times Square just outside the door. Found the room to be of a good size and well equipped.All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. Our lasting memory will be the view from Foleys Restaurant. Not one single complaint will visit again.

Top Local Tips for New York City

Red Flame Diner This is a small diner on 67 W 44th St, where all the locals eat! If you want a good value home-made breakfast, in not particularly touristy surroundings, then this is a good place to start your day! We had pancakes, but other diners' full breakfasts looked equally delicious, and the prices were equally good!

Splurge on the Gray-Line Bus Tours We loved using the Gray-Line All Loops (hop-on/hop-off) tours. We learned a lot about the city and visited many places that we would not have gone using a taxi (too expensive).
