We stayed at the Renaissance Vancouver Harbourside for two nights while awaiting our cruise to Alaska.
Overall, this was a good hotel that didn't do anything wrong - but it wasn't impressive in terms of its rooms, its restaurant, or its common spaces. That may have led me to give this an 'average' rating - but this hotel has three things going for it:
1) Its location is great - we could walk to anything in a short amount of time - including the cruise terminal. Plus, it was great to watch the sea planes land from my room.
2) Its club lounge had much higher quality food than I've seen in most other hotels in the Marriott chain (except for Ritz Carltons, of course). Each presentation had multiple, well-prepared options and even in between presentations, there were always well-stocked drink and snack options. Unfortunately, that is not the norm in the Marriott chain.
3) The staff was extraordinarily friendly and helpful. From Alex in concierge to the friendly and accommodating front desk clerk we met at the beginning - everyone was friendly. Even when the waitress told us we couldn't order breakfast or lunch during a 'middle period' in the morning, she said it in a very friendly way and offered us options outside of the hotel.
Would I stay here again? Yes. Would I go out of my way to do so or make a special occasion out of it? No. All in all, a solid choice in Vancouver.
