Shelly S wrote a review Nov 2021
Fort Worth, Texas3 contributions4 helpful votes
I normally do not write reviews of hotels, but I wanted to save other travelers money by voicing my experience of the Renaissance in downtown Cincinnati. Room was prepaid with my Marriott Bonvoy credit card & booked through Marriott app. Front desk personnel explained my husband has to be present since the room was booked using his advantage number. My mom and I took this trip together so my husband was back home in another state. Please keep in mind, room was prepaid using my Marriott Bonvoy credit card that I presented plus his advantage number. I was not aware there would be an issue or I would have created my own Marriott advantage number. We were treated terribly just because I used the Marriott app to book the room which was linked to my husband’s advantage number. The experience gets much worse. Room was unclean: dust all over bathroom counter, no toilet paper, etc. I could write an essay on the cleanliness of the room. My mom and I are simple folks. My mom has worked her entire life 16 to 66 & we do not have high expectations. We have stayed in Ritz Carlton to Holiday Inn & never complained about the service. Please keep in mind, when I say please avoid this hotel at all cost it comes from two hard working women. The valet at the hotel $42/daily never helped with your luggage, never acknowledge when your standing there with your ticket, and did not even communicate when your vehicle was ready. You would be standing there for 15 minutes or more. I truly hope this review is helpful to other travelers!! Worse hotel experience in over 25 years of traveling from a customer who even has a Marriott Bonvoy credit card.

I apologize about the check in not going as smooth as it should have been.

I greatly appreciate all of your feedback and will make sure that the our staff is able to use this as a learning opportunity as our guest are always our first priority. I would love to invite you back and ensure that you are provide a true Renaissance Cincinnati experience.

This is a neat old building for a hotel. Good value. Great location. Gym has everything you need. Glad to see Marriott lounge open again for breakfast. I would stay here again. Ask for a room with a view if possible, my room looked right into a brick wall.

We have stayed here twice, the first time two years ago. The first time was excellent and this time was pretty good. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The downtown location was perfect for us. And the beds were comfortable. We lucked out with a River/bridge view both stays. That is something to request. I would most certainly stay here again.

Beds were extremely comfortable and front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Valet parking staff was top notch. Good location with the exception of not having many restaurant option available close to the hotel. I don’t believe there was an in hotel dining option with the exception of a bar. Could be wrong on that count. Hallway needed to be vacuumed. Attendant service was lacking as we twice had to ask for additional towels from the front desk. Best Art Deco lobby and elevators

Room, and front desk staff were good. The inside of the room was clean and spacious but honestly the hall was filthy. Spent 2 nights- 3 days there and papers, and dropped wrappers accummulated over the course of both days. I don't understand why the cleaning staff couldn't have run the vacuum down the hall. It's not so much that it ruined anything but you are always suspicious if a hotel has a dirt problem how they handle the rest of the room maintenance. The valet hours were constrained by lack of staff and there was no communication between the call down front desk and valet staff. I have to temper my harshest criticism because Covid seems to be limiting staffing. That's the excuse. Go back in a year and tell me if it's the same please.
