Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance Cleveland Hotel
I recently completed a lengthy business assignment that kept me in Cleveland four nights a week for nine months. I stayed at the Cleveland Renaissance and couldn't have been happier. Even before they got to know to me, they provided an excellent stay. The bellman jump to help you, the front desk is courteous and efficient, and the concierge is very helpful. The club level provides a great breakfast, and evening appetizers. The hotel itself is a historic property, and so elevators can be slow. But the hotel is very distinctive, and has large public gathering areas, convenient for drinks from their lobby bar or reading a book. Rooms, all unique, are elegantly furnished and decent in size. I would recommend a room on the outside, not the inside that overlooks the pool (echoes make these rooms loud). The Sans Souci restaurant in the hotel is excellent- I ate here many times during my stay, for both lunch and dinner. The room service menu is good, and service is prompt. The location of the hotel is ideal- within easy walking distance to many restaurants, and Jacobs Field. It's also attached to a decent mall with good shopping and dining. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay in Cleveland.
Super location, large rooms and GREAT SERVICE
I love this hotel! Stayed there in October to plan a conference and stayed again this week for conference. Best location because you can get from Airport to your room and never go outside! Here are a few suggestions. When you book, ask for a "larger size room". Most are HUGE as when they did $40.million renovation in 2002 they removed about 40% of the rooms. A few few small rooms exist. If you get one, ask for a room change. Use the concierge, Susan Miller, for ideas. She is the best! Went out of her way for everything we needed! Highly recommenbd VIVI restaurant a block away for moderate priced fine dining. And Fat Fish Blue for fun food and great music a blocj from hotel. As for Convention Services we couldn't have been happier. This hotel is a National Landmark as well.
Great Location - Nice Hotel
Stayed here in January 2004 and in the dead of winter. Snow & bitter cold outside and I never had to go outside during my three night stay.
I was able to walk inside, directly into the arena for an NBA basketball game. During the summer you can walk right down to Jacobs Field for the Cleveland Indians game. Hotel and room are very clean/comfortable. Overall hotel is great. Slow elevators are my only critical comment. It's right downtown and perfect for business trips.
Beautiful Hotel !
Very nice hotel! I was pleasantly surprised! It was a cold and blustery night in Cleveland, however, the lobby and hotel were decorated for Christmas and it warmed us all up ! The room was smaller than what I anticipated, but what it lacked in size they made up for in furnishings. I loved the phone in the bathroom! Very nice, would (and will) recommend this hotel to anyone! It is close to Cleveland attractions, especially Rock Hall, Warehouse District (loved this area), etc......
This is an excellent hotel. We had rock and roll museum package that included tickets to museum for 2 days, 1 is all you need, breakfast 2 mornings and an enormous room on the 6th floor. This is an old hotel that has been redone very well. Staff is excellent, rates very reasonable. Ask for room on 6th floor, some of the largest I have ever seen.
Great Service but Thin Walls
Wife became ill during our stay, and staff provided us with everything we needed. Staff was courteous and friendly. Service better than we expected. You can't beat the location - connected to Tower City Mall and right downtown within walking distance to all attractions. Now the ugly - walls seem very thin. We heard lots of noise both nights during our stay. On Friday night, high school prom students ran up and down the halls, slamming doors. Room needed a chair or sofa - seemed sparsely appointed. Not a good value unless you use Priceline, as we did.
Wonderful! better than expected
After reading some of the other user reviews here -- i wasn't quite sure what to expect from the Renaissance. My girlfriend and i just spent Valentine's weekend there (Feb.14-16, 2003) and it was WONDERFUL! I honestly can not think of one complaint. Very nice hotel...incredibly decorated..nice, high class lobby and bar...connected to Tower City Mall. Close to many other Cleveland attractions. We only paid $119 a night. We already plan on going back.
A wonderful experience
From the moment I walked into the lobby, this was a wonderful experience. The room was beautiful, well appointed and the beds incredibly comfortable. All of the staff were friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and warm. My friend and I had dinner in the bar off the lobby (a very attractive room) where the food and the service were excellent -- and remarkably inexpensive for a hotel. I won't often be in Cleveland but when I return, I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else!
Rensissance... what a dream!!!
I simply LOVED staying in the Renaissance. They had great service and it was a lovely building. The rooms were not to small, but very nicely decorated! I stayed there for the Brazilian Carnaval in the Ballroom and it was so pretty. I highly recommend staying here! It is very nice.
Renaissance hotel, pooh!
I was disgusted at this hotel. It appears to be very fancy, lobby , ballroom etc. However the rooms are what I would expect from a cheap MOTEL. This is what I call false advertising. It was the smallest hotel room I ever stayed in.

... around and look at everything there which was interesting but also hard because I didn't know many of the bands included in the museum. After the museum, the group went out to eat in a restaurant called Burger 2 Beer. The food was really nice and the restaurant stayed open just for us so we had the whole place to ourselves. Once we had finished our meal, we had a relaxing night in our hotel rooms to make up for lost hours of ...
... EZ tied down, Terry arrived. He and Jan were kindly our hosts for the stay. We took the opportunity to inspect his EZ in his pristine hangar – of which we're not allowed to be envious! Olmsted Falls is about 35 mins from the airfield and a delightful suburb of the city. On the way, we made a pit-stop at a local diner for lunch. An entertaining afternoon and evening was spent chatting with Jan and Terry, sharing stories, and enjoying a delicious home cooked ...
... ll have to get this fixed while being on the trip, as it is quite inconvenient to only have one working sliding door. We'll deal with that later...
The Cleveland Botanical Garden is a great place to visit. It features a tree house area as well, a butterfly glasshouse, and a wonderfully arranged herbs garden area. There are also chameleons to be observed from close distance. It makes it ...
We were supposed to leave around 8 last night but Ron called and told JP to wait so that he could fill the last bit of space in the trailer with something from the warehouse. I opted to go sleep in the Kmart parking lot (I was already all unpacked in the truck) but Kmart kicked us out....they used to be truck friendly but now they "have new policies." ...
... cars in the roads at this time in the morning, which is a good thing as New York is apparently doing roadworks on EVERY SINGLE ROAD and it would have taken ages if there had been more traffic. Along the way, we passed through some adorably named tiny towns, such as Friendship and Harmony. We also passed thorough the Seneca Nation's reservation, who are the people who used to live where Letchworth State Park now is, before they were kicked out and their lands sold. ...
