This historic hotel is in remarkably good condition with its almost-a-century old architectural details intact. Room on the 8th floor was large, on the back side of the building, and quiet, although the view was of air handling equipment. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The restaurant breakfast buffet was OK, not included...

Classic historical hotel from the Lobby, Lobby Bar, marble and detail you will not find in newer construction. Great views of the Public Square and walking distance to so many different places. Rooms are good, however, remember this hotel is ~100 years old. Ask for a room with a view of the Square.

Has a chilled water system that may work OK when it I HOT or COLD outside, but between 45-65 degrees there is only tepid water in the system. As a result, your room is either too hot or to cold. The meeting and exhibit rooms were uncomfortable until we companied greatly - and they finally cooled down. Food at meetings...

Had a short business trip in my wife's home town (The Mistake on the Lake 😜) and the weather is horrible here today. I didn't get a chance to do a lot around the hotel but I did walk out in the rain to see what's around the hotel. There are plenty of things to do in downtown Cleveland. There...

I have stayed at different Marriott properties and generally have an idea of what to expect. I did not expect the service at this Marriott property to be this utterly lacking. The hotel has an old world look and the room was quite nice. However, poor service truly overshadowed my stay. Upon arrival, my boss and I had to handle...

I recently stayed at the Renaissance in Cleveland on a Saturday night. I found the hotel to have a beautiful lobby, great lobby bar, and wonderful restaurant. The staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about the hotel. Because I am a gold member I was upgraded to a suite which was just beautiful. The bathroom was huge with a wonderful...

I hate to give any Marriott such a low rating as I'm a Platinum member but this place is terrible. No thermostat in room and wall heaters that don't work, rude bartenders in the lobby bar, no answer to room service after calling three times and ringing forever, handle fell off my vanity sink.... I really don't need to go...

Beautiful older building in a great location. Valet was friendly and helped bring the luggage to our room and gave us pointers on the city. His name is Miles. Front desk upon check-in was not so friendly. I'm not sure if it was because we had booked through Priceline or not. But we were not going to get a king...

This is the worst Renaissance I have ever stayed in. Very old and outdated. Phones in the rooms don't work. Heating in the rooms doesn't work. No updated outlets/USB for computer or phone charging. I totally understand you wanting to keep the historical character look on the outside, but can a guest get a "WOW" feeling when they go into...

On a recent business trip to Cleveland I stayed at the Renaissance and thought the look of the hotel was incredible. Great architecture and look. The staff if friendly and were very accommodating.
