If Renaissance is supposed to be the high end of Marriott chains, the Pere Marquette should probably be downgraded. I was given a corner room on the 19th floor (I was told that was a special Platinum Elite member bonus room), and while there were more windows to look out of which was nice, the room was otherwise very standard and ho-hum. The TV was a small 17 or 19 inch retro box from two decades ago. The coffee maker's water reservoir looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. The bed sagged in the middle. The a/c system was loud. Every half hour or so, I would hear a loud "thunk" from somewhere within the plumbing system - I can only assume it's old piping in the building.
On the plus side, the receptionist area and valet parking staff are very helpful and expedient. The lobby, bar, and waiting areas on the first floor are decked out in chic and modern decor, which if you're into that kind of thing, is probably very cool.
