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 Rewards 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.

Families like the resort's swimming pool, part of which resembles a sandy beach, and Camp Oasis kids program. While the little ones are off making new friends, guests are quick to hit the links at the Renaissance's two 18-hole golf courses or make use of the treatment rooms at Spa Esmeralda. And when it comes time to regroup, the resort's eateries provide the settings for family dinners. Visitors will have their choice of a wide variety of cuisine, from Italian fare at Sirocco Pizza Company to American dishes at CAVA. Accommodations earn props for their ample space and amenities, including flat-screen TVs and private balconies. Though some guests lament the daily $30 resort fee. But those who are part of the Marriott Bonvoy program can trim the bill in exchange for accumulated points.

Whether travelers stayed for an overnighter or if they were booking an extended trip, many recount a comfortable, quiet hotel with friendly front desk staff.

    Perched on the southern fringe of Sonoma, California, The Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance Resort & Spa impresses visitors with extremely spacious accommodations. The property's 182 guest rooms take a cue from their wine-country location with yellow and purple decor, while balconies and fireplaces (available in most rooms) set the scene for a romantic getaway. Still, not all visitors were impressed: Some travelers say that the room furnishings are starting to show signs of age, and others complain that the layout of the bathrooms makes them prone to post-shower flooding. However, this Renaissance resort earns an A-plus for customer service. Visitors are quick to compliment the hotel employees on their friendly demeanors. And if you're not loving your room, you can spend your days lounging by the outdoor pool, relaxing in the spa or eating Mediterranean-influenced California cuisine at Carneros Bistro. Because of its family ties, The Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance Resort & Spa participates in the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program.
