Historical Traveller Reviews of Renaissance Seattle Hotel
Excellent stay - nice walks to everywherefrom Mayor_of_Jhelom
It is also located within walking distance everything. The public library is only a block away, the waterfront is a few blocks downhill, etc. The Space Needle is a little further away, but a nice walk with some shops along the way. Conveniently located across the street is the bus line that can take you to the Pike Place market for good food and shopping.
When I return to Seattle next Fall, I will definitely check in here.
not happyfrom Sam_I_Am_Boise
Cleaning staff refolded used towels and put them back on the rack. I found hair on the sink after the place had been cleaned (apparently). Bath towels felt like sand paper on skin. The heater rattled and hummed all night.
Coffee makers are not provided but wake-up service provides complimentary coffee/tea/hot beverage if requested.
The front desk attendants rarely smiled. The bellhops and concierge did a far better job in seeming friendly and pleasant.
I had a great view of the puget sound from my 11th floor window.
Location - Pike Place market is walking distance (15 minutes) and so is west lake center from where one can take the monorail to the space needle. Then again, nearest Macdonald's is also a 15-minute walk. That to me is a big disadvantage if you are craving junk food (as I am wont to do when I am traveling) at midnight.
Not bad if you book on Pricelinefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms are OK, nothing spectacular. I also liked the free hot cocoa with your wake up call. The beds are nice and comfy. One thing that irritated me was that the mini bar was sealed shut which was kind of annoying.
There are other nicer and more luxurious hotels to stay in in Seattle than this one, but for $70 on Priceline it wasn't bad at all.
Parking fee stinks. :(from faile819
At check-in (after parking our car in their lot) we were informed that to park at the hotel we would have to pay $19 PER NIGHT to have our car there. We were told it was one of the least expensive places to park in the area - total lie, by the way, as we found out the next day when walking around the area. We probably should have checked ahead of time, but honestly, I can't remember a time where a hotel you're renting a room in doesn't give you free parking (or at least greatly reduced) during your stay. Bad customer service.
The woman who checked us in was not friendly and barely polite - maybe because we didn't have to pay the $160 a night like they offer on their website - and put us on the 11th floor, freeway view. Quite noisy and not pretty at all. How disappointing. :( The other requests we'd made ahead of time (one king bed and non-smoking room) were taken care of but I had to double check on them at check-in.
One good thing is that they offered complimentary hot chocolate with a wakeup call and that was very tasty. All in all, though, we'll stay closer to home at a more affordable hotel that doesn't stiff us in parking next time.
t stay here if the forecast is rainfrom ahoy31
The second night we were awoken by dripping water from the ceiling. The rain outside was being funneled into our room. The water was spilling over the wardrobe onto the counter and flooding our carpet. We called maintenance and they told us that this happens every time it rains. They instructed us to ask for more towels from Housekeeping and used all our room towels to soak up the deluge. The hotel did refund us the night however, I wouldn't stay there if the forecast is rain. It is possible that the issue was only in our room however the ceiling of the cafe on the 2nd floor showed clear water damage.
Okay but not a four starfrom SaraCKTaylor
Good value with ideal locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
a nice view also. Really convenient to most anyplace you'd want to go.
Rated 3.5 stars-compared to other 3.5 star hotels I've been in, the
Renaissance should be at least a 4.
Ask for the upper east sidefrom mossman99
A Fine hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Seattle or it's environs. The Renaissance sits
atop a hill I suppose nearly a mile above Seattle but it is a straight walk down to the seafront. Walking back is a different matter and so don't stay here if a) you cannot walk up hills and b) don't want to pay a taxi fare back up to the hotel (cost us about $5 to $7 usually). The hotel was extremely comfortable, has a small pool on the 28th floor (gym too) and the staff were extremely friendly. One of the nicer hotels I have stayed at....
Great Downtown Hotel!!!from betch4
Top Local Tips for Seattle
please post hotel price Not so much a tip just a request, When doing reviews please post the price you paid for room(s) it gives others a idea of what to expect to pay from various web sites.
Cheap But Good Airport Transportation Grey Line bus from the airport serves many downtown hotels directly or nearby. Very handy and very cheap compared to other modes.
Caution The city has seen a proliferation of street people who are none to shy about asking individuals for money, etc. Be aware of your surroundings at all times.
