Renaissance New York Times Square Hotel
- What's Included
This hotel has absolutely the best views of Times Square from indoors at the restaurant. Just amazing. Rooms were clean and roomy. Only reason it is not a five is for a hotel the lobby, restaurant and common area is much more limited than most 5 star hotels.
As a Marriott Exec Platinum I have my fair share of interesting travel experiences. I want to give a shout out to front desk gurus Glenda and Tammy who made my day just by being kind, happy, and accommodating as I checked in this morning. I won't go in to the details but they went above and beyond. You can tell when someone is just punching in and out - doing their jobs in a mundane manner, you can tell when someone gives a mediocre level of customer service because it is a demand from above, and you can tell, because it truly stands out, when an employee really cares what the customer is experiencing and this is Glenda and Tammy. I did not meet their supervisor/manager but I would thing that they are more of a leader than a manager, keep it up!.
We have stayed in this hotel before and came back as it is in the best location as it is bang in Times Square with a jaw dropping view from the restaurant. In saying this, when we stayed before it was much more relaxed in the bar area, and by that I mean that after a long day you feel like you want to kick back and have a beer and chill out, but they have revamped the bar area and it is not that sort of environment anymore. Yes you can have a beer, but the atmosphere is definitely more expensive wine bar than anything else. The rooms were fine but we were on the 8th floor and you could hear a lot of noise from the street below at night, so definitely go higher if at all possible. The staff are helpful and I find it hard to criticise any of them, but really didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel other than sleeping. If we go back we will be staying at another hotel as we have stayed here twice, where we enjoyed the first one but not so much the second time. If you have booked I am sure you will enjoy it but we are comparing against 2 stays and just preferred it before the refurbishment.
Myself and my fiancé came to New York for the first time this week, we stayed in this hotel I have to say everything was fantastic, the website says the rooms will be ready from 4pm to check in, we arrived just around 1 and the room was already good to go, we checked in had a wonderful 4 nights, the location is perfect! Right next door to Big Bus Tour, which I highly recommend, the only niggle I found was there was no free wifi in the rooms, however you can pay to get this which I did as I didn't mind some other people may not like that however, we spent the week including valentines, we had dinner in the R Lounge overlooking Times Square, we had lovely service, live music from a lovely guy, even had a proposal next to us which was really sweet, the staff gave my fiancé a rose also which was a nice touch, and then on checking out we had to wait for our taxi a little while but the staff were more than happy to help a gentleman called the taxi company and sorted it for us and we waited in reception, a lovely hotel lovely staff, I would recommend this hotel, location is perfect also.
Had a fantastic 3 night stay at the renaissance in the summer of 2013 and had a wonderful stay. This is not a cheap hotel but it was worth every penny for the views alone. Every morning at breakfast we would gaze out of the window across Times Square and smile, the views are just breath taking. It's a great hotel for exploring the city with a subway and hop on off bus stop right outside the front door, and stardust cafe just around the corner (definitely worth a visit) We would definitely stay here again, if we can afford it!
