Renaissance New York Hotel 57
- What's Included
Lobby and restaurant under construction. Felt rooms were very small. Junior Suite was not very big. Housekeeping failed to clean room first night. Front desk area under staffed. The front desk staff was helpful when not busy. Better Marriott/Renaissance choices available in NYC.
I am a platinum member so i was upgraded for my one night stay (but didn't know i was upgraded) to a beautiful suite with lots of room and lots of windows. The bathroom was newer and very pretty, plus clean. There is only ice on every other floor, and there is no vending. I was sent to a store about 2 blocks away (in the dark, female traveler)I checked out and headed to the airport, but was socked in by remnants of Harvey. So I decided to come back to the 57. This time when I got to my room, I realized I had been upgraded before! Wow this thing is small, which isn't a big deal, just shocking from my first night! The staff was very friendly and helped me to get a car for my 4am departure, rather than tracking down a cab at that time.Overall, this is just an OK property. It is very unique, and appears to be going through some changes. It is an excellent location and I would stay there again. Maybe waiting until the restaurant is back open!
This place hardly merits the Marriott name- it's TOTALLY undeserving of the Renaissance label. The place seems very old (80s?) and is ratty- chipped stairs and furniture surfaces in the lobby. Chipped furniture in the rooms. Really worn out and ratty. As others have mentioned it is a former apartment buildings- this is evident in the hallway design.Service is also not worthy of the name. When I went into the tiny lobby on the street level there were three workers there chatting. I felt like I invaded someone's private conversation on the subway platform, not that I was in a hotel that was supposedly high end. Took a minute for one of them to even notice I was there waiting to check out.Restaurant is closed so no room service at all. There's a sign in the street level lobby that says "Pardon our dust. New lobby coming in December 2017" If it's all new and they haven't even begun construction in late October, I wonder if it is truly a major change or a minor spruce up.The maid forgot to clean the toilet one night. First time I've ever had that happen in ANY hotel ever.Sinful to ask this price for this place. Marriott should evaluate this place and either upgrade it to meet the standards of the Renaissance name, or downgrade its branding.If you like the location, try the Fitzpatrick right across the street. MUCH MUCH MUCH cheaper. You get a lot of space, and friendly service.
This hotel has clearly had an overhaul recently. The lobby is newly renovated, and the rooms have fairly new furniture. The bed was comfortable enough. The bathroom was a mess. The shower head was leaking and spraying water all over the bathroom soaking everything. The sink had low water pressure. The location is a bit of a problem as well. The corner of 57th and Lex is loud. Even on the 7th floor, the traffic noise made it hard to sleep. Try to get an interior room if possible to avoid the noise.
We stayed in the Renaissance 57 for 8 nights in mid-October. We had trouble booking a room for that length of stay during the time we wanted. We found that the Renaissance 57 had rooms available for the 8 nights that we needed. We found that it was a nice, old hotel with a lot of character. Upon check in, we were upgraded to a room with a terrace on the 15th floor. It was a nice room in the corner overlooking Lexington and 57th. The location of the hotel could not be better. We attended an Opera at the Met, went to Central Park, were close by to the subway station on Lexington and 59th. We were able to get all around the city with ease from this location. One issue with having a room in the corner overlooking a busy intersection was the noise. When they say that NYC is the "City that never Sleeps," they are not kidding. There was street construction going on all night for 5 nights. There was jackhammering, backhoes ripping up the street, and dump trucks taking all the debris away. We arrived on a Monday and did not get a decent nights sleep until the Saturday night when the workers were not jackhammering. Even though the windows on the room were double pane, the noise was coming through the AC unit which was right next to the bed. The views from the terrace made the noise a little bearable. The is not a restaurant in this hotel yet, it reopens in the Spring of 2018; but there are a lot of good places to eat nearby. The staff were exceptional in this hotel. They were helpful for all our needs. If it were not for the noise at night, this would have been a great place to stay.
