          Friendly staff

          No noise filtering from highway below. Poor night's rest due to continuous traffic. Overpriced parking rate $30 per day. Receptionist could not locate our reservation at check-in.

        • Older travelers

          The weather was good... friendly staff.

          Very dated rooms and extremely poor value for the money. Check-in and valet was awkward. I will not return.

          I didnt like how they told my roomate and I that we can get free breakfest in the morning, therefore we didnt. We had to pay. Also People were complaining that we were being to loud. We were here for a soccer tournament and we had music on to be relax. But other then that everything was good!

        • Older travelers

          The staff was oustanding and with my many years of experience in top hotels all ove the world, they easily stack up as some of the best.

          That is a difficult question to answer as I was in seattle for my wife's serious medical needs whereas I usually am on either pleasure or business.

          We really enjoyed our stay at the Renaissance. We especially appreciated the free room service breakfasts. What a treat! The room was very nice and we were very comfortable.

          The television could have offered more selections. We wanted to watch the Huskies game and the station that the game was on wasn't available.

        • Older travelers

          employees who worked the concierge desk were outstanding...we dealt with different people everyday and always got the very best from all of them.

          Higher up than we expected from the Pikes Market and shopping. Streets are very steep for us 'older' people.
