We just checked out of the Renaissance Times Square after sending 3 nights using Marriott points. We stayed here several years ago and this time was just as good. Traveling with me were my wife and 10 year old son. We are gold elite and we were given a room on the 24th floor (total of 26 floors). You can still easily hear the sirens even on floor 24. With gold status, we were given daily free breakfast and a handful (I think 8) of vouchers for free appetizers in the lounge. The appetizers were very filling and wonderful.
You can't beat the location of the hotel if you want to be I the middle of Times Square. Their NYE view is the best in town but you pay for it. Get this-$17,000 for a table for 4 from 6pm-1am including drinks and food. Or you can get a table about 30 feet further back without as good of a view for $5,000. Oh and this does not include the room which you can get for $649 plus taxes per night, 2 night minimum starting 12/30/12.
Our king size room was really large, had a rollaway brought on, nice large shower but no tub. We did not push ourselves too much on this trip. We saw two musicals-Rockettes and Grinch and went to one movie. Had some rain but oh well. I have stayed at other Times Square hotels but this one is our favorite. Next trip, we may stay near Central Park where our nieces live in the area just for a change of pace.
