I was excited to stay at this hotel as I have been a Marriott Elite member for several years now and I generally really like the Renaissance brand.
This hotel is at first glance in a very nice location, near many of the attractions but, after a few days, I began to realize that there isnt much around it and found myself walking a great deal to get to restaurants and such.
The hotel itself, I did not find up the Renaisance standard and I really believe that if the hotel were in the US it would be under the Courtyard name. The decor, the fabrics, everything, excepth the bedding screamed Courtyard Mariott. Certainly not what I expected.
Most certainly not worthy of a 5-Star rating nor the associated prices.
The staff in the hotel was unattentive and indifferent as well. No one gave the impression of wanting to tend to your needs and don't even think about asking the concierge for anything. The day I departed, my wake-up call never occured. Thank heavens for Blackberry.
