We have been traveling for about two weeks and have stayed in some really nice hotels including another Renaissance hotel. This one is okay. Unfortunately for us a recent guest must have smoked in the room. Tough to hide that. Also found it strange that in a supposedly four star hotel that our bed was a queen (3 star). I think a king would have fit. The furnishings were nice. I appreciate the refrigerator and tea/coffee service in the room. The flooring was getting a bit discolored from wear in the high traffic areas, but not too noticeable and did not influence our rating.
I am a do it your selfer, so I noticed that the tile job in the bathroom was a bit strange where the tile base molding was added after the wallpaper. The grout was smeared onto the paper, and there was no grout in the outside corner. Again, kind of (3 star).
My wife asked about parking at the desk when we arrived and was told about the valet parking. We were not told that the meter parking was free from 10 on until 6 in the morning. We knew that since the staff at a hotel around the corner told us that a year or two back when we stayed there. Perhaps it is not necessary to tell us all the options, but it would be helpful.
If this hotel was listed as a three star, I would give it a rating of 4, but since it is listed as a four star hotel, the standards are higher, so it only gets a 3 in my book.
