Renaissance allows the distinctive local character and flavor of each hotel's location to dictate the atmosphere and experience for guests. Combining intelligent design and adventurous dining with Marriott International's well-regarded customer service, Renaissance revels in its ability to supply "inspiration" to its guests. This so-called inspiration manifests itself in the landmark buildings many Renaissance Hotels occupy and the encouraged community discoveries like locally owned bars, restaurants and shops. (And because of its brand ties, guests can earn and cash in Marriott Bonvoy points at any Renaissance hotel.) With more than 160 properties and another 33 in the works, many Renaissance properties boast spots on our Best Hotels in the USA, Best Hotels in Europe and Best Hotels in Canada rankings lists.

    The Shelbourne Dublin, A Renaissance Hotel
    Dublin
    #1 in Best Renaissance Hotels
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4326 reviewsTripAdvisor (4326)

    Although The Shelbourne Dublin, A Renaissance Hotel is known among locals as a storied landmark, recent guests had very mixed reviews about the hotel. While a handful of travelers definitely enjoyed their time at this Marriott outpost, others noted poor customer service and dated rooms.. Some expressed frustration that they did not receive advance notice about the hotel’s construction, while others complained of inattentive service, especially at the restaurant and bar.  Some guests found the rooms to be top-notch, with amenities like queen beds with pillow-top mattresses, flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi, minibars, coffee makers and marble bathrooms. Others, though, thought the rooms were outdated, and several said their rooms were not ready when they arrived. Plus, some travelers complained that the rooms got too hot, even during the winter. Dining options include two restaurants that serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, and three bars and lounges that serve lunch and dinner in addition to a plethora of drinks. At the 1824 Bar, you can sample rare whiskey, while you can enjoy an afternoon tea at the Lord Mayor’s Lounge. Other on-site amenities include a fitness center with personal training services and fitness classes as well as an indoor infinity pool and spa with salon services. You can find The Shelbourne Dublin in the center of Dublin, right across the street from St. Stephen’s Green. Keep in mind that Marriott Bonvoy members can use and earn points by choosing to stay here.

    La Concha Renaissance San Juan Resort
    San Juan
    #2 in Best Renaissance Hotels
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 8129 reviewsTripAdvisor (8129)
    Free WiFi

    Stylish and sleek, La Concha boasts striking ocean views from its perch along Condado Beach's sugary sands. But La Concha's position on Puerto Rico's northeastern shoreline isn't the only reason this Renaissance outpost earns high praise from recent guests. Rooms and suites are comfortable and spacious (albeit slightly dated in some areas). Standard amenities include 37-inch flat-screen TVs, walk-in showers, iPod docking stations and free Wi-Fi access. Past visitors also attribute a satisfactory stay to La Concha's plentiful entertainment options. Sun-seekers can sprawl along the beach, while history buffs can head less than 4 miles northwest to explore Old San Juan. Still craving more action? Test your luck at the on-site casino or invigorate your taste buds at one of six restaurants. Cuisine options range from American to Italian to Japanese. If you participate in the Marriott Bonvoy program, you can earn or redeem points here.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3968 reviewsTripAdvisor (3968)
    Free WiFi

    If you're after exceptional service and classic English charm, consider staying at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel London. Originally opened in 1873 as a hotel for visitors arriving and departing from the attached St Pancras International rail station, this Renaissance outpost features towering spires, arched entryways and a double staircase with wrought iron balustrades. Common areas like the Booking Office restaurant and Hansom Lounge showcase the property's historic roots, while guest rooms offer classic interiors complete with flat-screen TVs, coffee makers, robes and slippers and water replenished daily. Once you're ready to explore London, pop next door to King's Cross rail station (where the 9 3/4 platform from the "Harry Potter" series is located) before hopping on the Tube at King's Cross St Pancras station. And if you're a Marriott Bonvoy member, know that you can earn and redeem points at this property.

    The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club
    St. Petersburg, FL
    #4 in Best Renaissance Hotels
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2085 reviewsTripAdvisor (2085)

    Picturesquely positioned on St. Petersburg, Florida's beautiful waterfront, The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club has elegant and anchored boats in its sights. Travelers say the hotel's interior is just as beautiful. Guest rooms have marble bathrooms, pillow-top mattresses and minibars. And the service fares well with recent lodgers. Visitors say the staff is friendly and accommodating, especially at the front desk. While the hotel sits approximately 23 miles from Tampa, recent guests say there's no need to leave St. Petersburg for fun to-dos: the resort enjoys access to the 18-hole Vinoy Golf Club as well as tennis courts. Travelers also heap praise on this Renaissance's restaurants, especially Marchand's Bar & Grill. On the other hand, visitors note that a stay here will set you back a pretty penny. But Marriott Bonvoy members can use or earn points here for additional perks.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 597 reviewsTripAdvisor (597)
    Free WiFi

    Housed in the former Colorado National Bank building, the Renaissance Denver Downtown City Center Hotel impresses guests with its stunning architecture and elegant decor. While the lobby and public areas of this Renaissance outpost were modeled after the original building, the hotel's rooms are more modern and feature flat-screen TVs, minifridges and free Wi-Fi access. Travelers praised the guest rooms for their overall comfort and spaciousness. Recent guests were also complimentary of the on-site eatery, Range, which serves "new American west cuisine" with ingredients inherent to the Rocky Mountain region. The lobby Teller Bar also received high praise for its awesome setting and cocktails. And thanks to the hotel's central downtown location, recent visitors said more eateries and bars are within easy walking distance of the property. If you're a Marriott Bonvoy member, you can earn and redeem points at this Denver hotel.

    Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel
    Chicago, IL
    #7 in Best Renaissance Hotels
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1985 reviewsTripAdvisor (1985)

    Sitting on the northern fringes of the Loop (near Chicago's theater district), the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel is a popular choice for business and leisure travelers alike. Less than a block from the State/Lake Station – which connects to the Green, Purple, Brown, Orange and Pink "L" train lines – the hotel's primo location makes it easy to explore beyond your digs. On top of its convenience, guests were also impressed with their stay at this Renaissance property. Visitors love the large amount of space in the stylish and comfortable guest rooms thanks to amenities like flat-screen TVs, designer linens and excellent city views (many recommend requesting a room facing the river). Additionally, the hotel features an indoor swimming pool and a fitness center. The customer service also leaves a good impression, with travelers saying that the staff were very friendly. But guests are quick to complain about the high cost of parking here, which will add $69 a day to your final bill, as well as the noise in rooms overlooking the "L" train line tracks. The in-house restaurant also gets knocked for its prices, though travelers do say the food is good. Those looking to save can use Marriott Bonvoy points to cover the cost of their room.

    Renaissance Santo Domingo Jaragua Hotel & Casino

    #8 in Best Renaissance Hotels
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 990 reviewsTripAdvisor (990)
    Free Parking

    Situated in the bustling Malecon, the Marriott-affiliated Renaissance Santo Domingo Jaragua Hotel & Casino offers a convenient location for travelers looking to explore Santo Domingo's contemporary neighborhood. Visitors appreciate the updated decor and say the hotel makes for a comfortable stay. Rooms feature plush bedding, Aveda toiletries and, in select accommodations, views of the Caribbean Sea. But with all of the other amenities, you may not need to spend much time in your digs. Travelers say the pool is large, well-maintained and right across the street from the ocean. For a little more pampering, head to the spa. Or, if you're tempted to test Lady Luck, check out the on-site casino. After you work up an appetite, grab a bite at one of the hotel's two restaurants, Luna Bar & Restaurant and Sol Pool Lounge & Restaurant. The property also features a coffee shop with homemade gelato for those with sweet tooths. Recent guests' only complaint was the occasionally lackluster customer service. However, if you're a Marriott Bonvoy member, you can earn or use points here.

    Sitting on 40 acres in Aruba, the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino caters to both couples and young families with its two distinctive areas: the adults-only Renaissance Marina Hotel and the kid-friendly Renaissance Ocean Suites. The adults-only Renaissance Marina Hotel features a casino (one of two at the property), a fitness center, an infinity pool and the Okeanos Spa. Meanwhile, Renaissance Ocean Suites boasts its own beach lagoon, outdoor pools and the Patamingo Kids Club. No matter which section of this Renaissance resort you stay at, you'll have access to six restaurants (plus a Starbucks and two bars), a private island with family and adults-only beaches, and the shops at the attached Renaissance Mall. Guest rooms and suites in both areas offer contemporary decor, flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi access and private balconies or patios. Although some past guests said the room decor was a bit dated, many loved the private island, friendly staff and tasty cuisine. If you're a member of the Marriott Bonvoy program, you can use accrued points to pay for your stay.

    This uniquely designed property was originally intended as a Masonic temple, but it stood empty for nearly 80 years due to lack of funds during the Great Depression. Then Marriott gave the property a facelift, refashioning the building into a stylish hotel with contemporary furnishings. Some of the early design elements of the building are still preserved, like the marble columns and Masonic iconography on the tile flooring. The spacious guest rooms are furnished with upscale amenities, such as down comforters, feather pillows, marble bathrooms and minifridges. Though some recent guests bemoan the steep valet parking fees, most praise the hotel for its convenient location next to the State Capitol and hospitable front-desk and concierge staff. If you're signed up for the Marriott Bonvoy program, you're eligible to receive extra perks like complimentary stays by choosing to stay here.

    Located inside Edmonton International Airport, the Renaissance Edmonton Airport Hotel offers travelers a place to hang their hat before or after a flight. In fact, this hotel is the only Renaissance in the world attached to an airport terminal, meaning you'll have access to an array of shops and eateries without having to leave the building. What's more, a golf course and a dog park sit less than 5 miles away, and downtown Edmonton, Alberta's theaters, restaurants and boutiques can be found about 20 miles to the north. Back at the property, there's a fitness center, an indoor pool, nearly 10,000 square feet of event space and a Starbucks. For more substantial meals, the hotel has Halo Bar and Bistro, which serves casual bistro fare. Recent diners raved about the restaurant's food, citing the breakfasts as one of the highlights of their stays. The hotel's accommodations also stood out to past guests. Each space features a white color palette with modern accent walls, as well as soundproofed windows, a desk and Aveda toiletries. And if you're a Marriott Bonvoy member, you'll enjoy free Wi-Fi access while earning or redeeming points for stays.

    Guests can rest easy knowing that they will be completely taken care of at the Renaissance Montreal Downtown Hotel. That's because travelers consistently report unmatched service, praising staff members for their excellent recommendations, genuinely kind demeanor and ability to accommodate all lodgers' needs. Guests also thoroughly enjoyed this Marriott's enviable location in downtown Montreal. From the hotel, lodgers can easily reach top city attractions by foot, including Old Montreal and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (both a little more than a mile away). While there is plenty to do beyond the doorstep of this Renaissance, the hotel offers top-notch facilities and amenities of its own.

The hotel also boasts a fitness center, a seasonal rooftop plunge pool, a rooftop restaurant (AIR Rooftop Terrace) and EAST restaurant, which serves modern Asian cuisine.

    You'll find the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel on North Thoreau Drive in Schaumberg, Illinois, about 30 miles northwest of Chicago. Although this hotel is probably too far from the city for leisure travelers, those in town on business will find all their needs met.

Many who have stayed here reported a good experience, praising the hotel for its quality customer service and ample amenities. Guest rooms offer contemporary decor and giant windows.

You'll also find flat-screen TVs (including a TV embedded in the bathroom mirror) and high-speed Internet access (for a fee). This hotel also boasts a sizable fitness center, as well as an indoor pool and whirlpool. Meanwhile, two in-house restaurants (and one coffee shop) serve up a variety of dishes ranging from steaks to salads. What's more, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn and redeem points here.
