Not Quite What I Was Thinking

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 20, 2006

[I should preface this by saying that I'm a bit of a hotel snob. It's ok. I can admit it. I've gotten over the denial stage.]

The lobby at the Renaissance Seattle is very nice, sort of Asian comtemporary. The plants are real, which is big plus, and usually a pretty good sign that the hotel will be of pretty good quality. However, the front desk staff was kind of clueless and it took them an eon to get me registered.

Our room was ok. And I mean just that: ok. The sheets on the beds were nice, but the beds themselves were too small. And no mini bar? What the heck? You could see that there once WAS mini bar in the room, but that it had been removed and replaced by some kind of tacky-looking wire mesh cage thing. But why?

Also, and everyone who reads my hotel reviews knows how I hate this: no bathrobes. No bathrobes. Hello? Isn't this the Renaissance Hotel?

Unique Quality: A real plus point was that the hotel had very good food. The breakfast there was great, and the restaurant itself had a nice view. We also got a free newspaper every day, and I HAVE TO read the newspaper when I drink my coffee in the morning, so this was nice.

Directions: About six blocks up from the Sound, near the public library.

Being a resident, I don't often have an opportunity to stay in Seattle hotels, but when I do, the Renaissance is my hotel of choice. It's a little pricey, but well worth it. Because it sits on 6th Avenue, high above all the other high rises, you get the most beautiful, sweeping views of downtown Seattle, Elliott Bay, and the Olympic Mountains. It is magnificent. And the rooms and the service are just outstanding. I love this place!

Unique Quality: The view is absolutely the best!

Directions: In Downtown Seattle. From I-5 Northbound to Seattle, take exit #164A (Madison St). Turn left on Madison Street, and then go straight ahead one block to the hotel on the corner of 6th & Madison St.
