Renaissance Seattle Hotel
Ranked #51 of 103 Hotels in Seattle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Stayed here for 4 nights two weeks ago. First, check in was amazing. Room was ready when I arrived and the desk person, Nicole, was absolutely amazing. She made referrals for places to eat and local attractions. If I had another excellence service pin she would have received it. The rooms were normal size for a hotel. The bed was very comfy and the bathroom amenities were nice. The bathroom is very small and it has a slide in the wall door which i don't care for. Overall, this hotel is very nice and I would stay here again. The location is good for shopping or going to the market it is a short walk but the hotel is located on top of a very steep hill. Remember this as you pick your shoes to wear for the day. We went to the hotel bar at the top of the hotel for the view, you can skip it and go to the space needle instead.

Room Tip: we stayed on a higher floor and it was quiet

Was in Seattle for a convention and this hotel was in the perfect spot. Not only is it a very nice hotel, it's within walking distance of most downtown locations as well as the Washington State Convention Center. It also has very easy access to the interstate ( 5 ).
One recommendation: leave the Suburban at home. The parking is convenient for small cars. I can't imagine pulling my big trucks in there. Also, be prepared for $33 per day for garage parking. IIRC.

Thank you so much for staying with us while attending a conference in Seattle.
I do appreciate your comments about your stay and indeed you are correct we do not have parking for oversized vehicles, however we are able to direct any of our guests to an outside parking lot.

Again thank you and please come back soon.

This was a lovely hotel which is good for tourists as well as business travelers. Great beds, bedding and a large desk to work at.
The bar area is very nice and serves food as well.
Good location for not being in the very heart of the city but if you enjoy walking, you can walk to the heart of downtown Seattle---just not in the winter!

Room Tip: Get a room that does not face the highway (I 5)

This hotel is located in downtown Seattle near I-5. Parking is a bit of a hassle and very expensive in their garage (about $40/day with tax), but since this is typical of large city centers, I will not hold this against them. It is an easy walk to Pike Place Market, a little further to the waterfront, but there is plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby. The hotel is on a large hill which gives it great views of the water but also means it’s quite a climb on steep sidewalks. The staff was very friendly and accommodating for our entire stay. The conference we attended was well organized and the food served by the hotel was excellent. We stayed in Room 2504 which has great water views but had two double beds which are almost impossible to sleep two in. The room is large enough for queen beds so hopefully they will upgrade them soon. Otherwise, the room was clean, quiet, comfortable and looked like it had been recently renovated. We appreciated the mini refrigerator and bottled water that was provided free of charge. We are platinum members and did use the Concierge lounge in the mornings for breakfast. The lounge is nice and the breakfast food was the standard with some yummy baked goods.

Located in the heart of downtown. 15 minute walk from Pike place. Very good breakfast in the morning, windows were facing a very busy freeway, but all we could hear was air-conditioner. Comfy mattress, everything is very clean and shiny. Internet was not included in the room price, but was free in the lobby. I guess the expectation is, that people who already pay hundreds of dollars a night can afford a 13$ extra on the top. Great service, very quick check in and out. It is definitely not for people on a tight budget. We got a good deal on our room, otherwise we would not be able to afford the base price.

The location is amazing, just walk couple of minutes downhill and you will find yourself at the waterfront or in vicinity of other Seattle attractions. However, the slope is quite steep, but on the other hand a good workout. Rooms are little bit dark, but they are nice, spacious, nicely furnished, clean with comfortable bed and pillows; a very good standard in overall. Hotel staff is very nice and helpful. You can book plenty of amazing tours at the concierge. Staff is really nice and approachable. Breakfast is tasty, with choice of certain dietary products as well, which it don't usually find in hotels. Absolutely recommended!

I was here for a conference. The room was comfortable, though the cooling system is loud and the ventilation in the bathroom is poor. The mirror stays fogged for a long time after a shower. The public spaces are nice, though the furniture could use some updating.

The gem of my experience was the banquet dining. 400+ people were served efficiently buffet style. We had 5 meals plus happy hour and continental breakfasts. Every item in the buffet was wonderful. Few buffets excel at vegetables, and this one stood out. Roasted beets were delicious, green beans were crisp and tasty, small whole carrots and baby zucchini were a treat. The salads were interesting and fresh. And that is just the start. Every item, from meats to seafood, was delicious. Soups were delectable. Desserts were fabulous.

Staff in all areas of the hotel were friendly, helpful and very competent. The banquet staff were cheerful and welcoming.

The hotel is a convenient (though steep) walk to all of downtown.

Room Tip: Try to get on the west side, away from the highway noise.
