Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance Denver Hotel
Don't waste your money.
A tired, worn convention and business hotel. The beds are as worn out as the rest of the hotel. Breakfast was overpriced and cold. A turnstyle operation.
Renaissance Good Choice
This hotel is an excellent value. We got a rate of $55.00 per night at Marriott.
The area around this hotel is not very nice, but it's not a ghetto as one reviewer wrote. It's more business/industrial with a working class neighborhood on one side. The hotel is adjacent to the old, and now closed, Stapelton Airport. If beautiful scenery is important to you, don't stay here. We were not going to spend much time in our rooms so this was not important to us.
We wanted to visit may attractions in the Denver area and this hotel provided an ideal location with easy access to major highways.
The service was excellent! The staff could not have been more pleasant and accomodating.
Rooms: The rooms are definitely dated and need to be redecorated. They are, however, clean, spacious, quiet, and comfortable. We had great views of downtown Denver and the mountains. Be sure to request a room with a downtown view.
There are nicer hotels in Denver, but the price is also 3 or 4 times what we paid for this hotel. Given that we were going to be out and about, the extra cost was not justified. If I wanted more of a retreat-type vacation where I stay in my room and lay out by the pool, I would pick a nicer hotel.
Because of the service, access to highways, and low cost, I rate this hotel a 4/5.
Better than most on Quebec
While better than most of the other properties in the Stapleton area, this hotel has a lot of room for improvement.
Front desk staff was friendly, though the checkin process took a little longer than it should have. They didn't have my name in the system and it wasn't until I produced the paper copy of my reservation confirmation that the process started moving along. Being a Marriott rewards member and AAA member was of little benefit, as the only rooms you could get at a good rate under those programs were smoking rooms. I got a better deal by taking the standard rate off the website.
The fitness center was well stocked, the pool looked nice. Business center left a lot to be desired-- most equipment was out of order.
The room itself was good. The only downside was a beautiful view of the shopping center across Quebec. If you can, try to get a westward facing room. Hairdryer was broken, but everything else seemed to be in working order. No fridge or any amenities of that nature.
I guess different people would have different opinions of the parking garage. Personally, I'd prefer to park in a lot rather than meander through the levels of the garage, but it's no big deal. Easier parking is available at the Doubletree, Radisson and other properties along Quebec.
All in all, a fairly average stay. I've been to the Courtyard, Radisson and Renaissance when staying along Quebec and the Renaissance is as good as any of them.
Great accomodation and value
A couple friends and I stayed here the last weekend of October, 2004. I heavily researched hotels in Denver and this was the one I settled on. I was very pleased indeed! Not only did we get a great deal but the amenities and accomodations were terrific. The atrium was exquisite and roomy. The staff was courteous and helpful. Kudos to the atrium restaurant-the breakfast buffet was fabulous; so much food and quite tasty! Even our rooms were nice, kept very tidy by the good people of housekeeping. We had a view of Wal-Mart across the street but it could have been worse. In other reviews there is some hubbub about the Renaissance's location. My advice: if you're wanting to stay on Park Avenue then go to New York. This area used to be the Stapleton Airport. It is being refurbished slowly, Denver has been putting in restaurants and shopping centers. I saw no riff raff and we were there 3 1/2 days! I-70 is adjacent and access to Denver Intl' as well as the rest of the city is fantastic. The Renaissance offers free shuttles to downtown as well as Denver Intl!I have stayed in many hotels but by and large the Renaissance Denver is one of the better places I have stayed. You have to go to Las Vegas to get a comparable value and accomodation. Just don't ask the Concierge/Doorman for cookies late at night-he'll tell you. "that's the Doubletree!" I give the Renaissance Denver a wholehearted thumbs up.
Don't stay here
Reserved club room on 10/2003, when checking in they gave me room w/king bed when I reserved 2 queens. Had to go to front desk where they were very rude and told me to wait for a while to see if any rooms had 2 queens..said my reservation wasn't guaranteed..it was since I reserved w/credit card. Told me no room was guaranteed. I fought with them till I got room w/2 queen beds on 8th floor..w/club floor amenities. Took almost 2 hrs to check in. Last day of stay I asked for wakeup call that never came..almost missed flight home. Otherwise, rest of staff excluding front desk were nice enough. Hotel room ok, overlooked fire station and train tracks. Not the best area in town to stay. Won't stay here again.
This hotel is not in the ghetto. There is a brand new shopping center, and restaurants across from the hotel. The room was in OK shape. You could tell that it was a few years old. Overall, I felt that this hotel was a good value. I paid $62.00 for a room with two beds. We were on the 12th floor, and had a great view of downtown and the mountains. This worked out great becuase we stayed there on the 4th of July, and we were able to sit on the balcony and watch fireworks from all over the Denver area. I would definetly recommend this hotel, if you get a good rate.
Great hotel, great location ...
Very classy hotel, great location for the airport and downtown. Large clean rooms, lovely public areas and an attached multi storey car park. Fantastic breakfast buffet. You can't judge a hotel by the streets you have to drive through to get to there!
Great for reunion groups!!
I selected this hotel for a military reunion that will be held in October 2004. The hotel is beautiful and the staff is friendly and professional--the value they offered my group told me they really wanted our business. The neighborhood is not bad at all--there's a fire station and park a block away. Ask for a room on the west side for a nice view of downtown and the Front Range. Free trasportation to and from the airport as well as to downtown is a huge benefit.
Definitely not a ghetto. Comfortable rooms, friendly staff.. I'd stay there again.
You can almost never go wrong with Renaissance by Marriott. This certainly applies with the Denver Renaissance. The room was large and very comfortable. The amenities always give me an opportunity to try out Bath and Body Works products. The front desk staff were helpful each time they had to give me directions to get to another location.
The concierge gave accurate information about restaurants in the area.
And the maid service was close to the best I've ever witnessed. The maids are friendly and happy and that also tells me something about the management at this hotel.
The Renaissance is located across the street from a Panera Bakery, a few fast food restaurants, Home Depot, Office Depot, and a Walmart.
There is a lot of new growth since it used to be airport land. It's not a far drive to the downtown area or the new airport... it's probably right in the middle between the two.
I definitely recommend this hotel.
There's a reason you can get rooms here for $79. DOn't walk outside.
The neighborhood was horrendous. Hey, I like watching a drug bust as much as the next guy. But I prefer when its on TV and not on the drive home from downtown.
The bar was ok. A nice place for us to hang out after the drive home through some really choice sections of Denver.
