Hamburg seems to have become a very popular city for weekend travelers, so we were a bit surprised by the relatively high hotel prices in spite of the many hotel options. We settled for the Renaissance, mostly for its location in the heart of the shopping district--Hamburg is known for very classy shops--and excellent public transportation options; there are several subway (U-Bahn) and regional train (S-Bahn) stops near the hotel, including a direct S-Bahn link to the airport. A very affordable day pass provided us with easy access to many parts of the city.
The hotel probably dates from the early 1980s when the Hanseviertel shopping arcade was completed. It has a typical US hotel feel, including the many pillows on the bed, the color of the furnishings, and type of bathroom sink. But this went hand-in-hand with the usual quality you get when staying at a Marriott property. Given the prices at the hotel, we opted for getting breakfast in one of the cafes in the Hanseviertel, which we enjoyed a lot. Finally, as remarked by others, we found the staff at check-in extremely helpful, efficient, and pleasant to deal with. Overall, we felt that the relationship between the hotel's price and services offered was about right.
