Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Our stay at this hotel was 1 of 5 Marriott properties we stayed at over the course of 2 weeks. There were mostly pros to our stay, with a few cons. But I'd stay here again because it is a neat hotel, and the rooms are both huge and beautiful.Cons: We knew before booking that we'd be paying both a resort fee and a parking fee. They seem excessive but we were not surprised by them at check-in. The resort fee should be optional if you are not using any of the included resort amenities, which we did not. The self-parking fee is high considering how inconvenient and far the parking lot is. The front desk attendant was unexpectedly borderline unpleasant/rude. I have not encountered someone quite so disinterested in making the check-in experience feel nice. There was no wait and no issues, she just didn't seem happy to be working there.Pros:Everything else. The rooms were huge. The decor was lovely. Double sinks in the bathroom were a nice touch. The beds were the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept in. The interior balcony was a fun touch for the kids and made the room feel even larger when opened. And it was SO quiet. The room was quiet, even the lobby filled with people was somehow quiet. There were tons of people at the various bars and restaurants in the lobby when we went to bed, yet we couldn't hear a peep from anyone when we closed those doors. And the icing on the cake was the full-service Starbucks inside the lobby (not mediocre hotel cafe "proudly serving Starbucks" but a legit Starbucks).
I would just like to start this review by saying, we were at the Renaissance for the duration of Hurricane Irma and a huge thank you to all of the staff who worked during this time taking care of us.It was like nothing was happening, the gym was even constantly restocked with towels, something which I myself consider incredibly low priority during such a time.The information was up to date and communicated often & clearly. We were supplied with flashlights and glowsticks should we lose power (we didn't thankfully), buffets at a nominal fee were provided. Games were out for kids & big kids, movies playing, extra thought put into taking care of those people who had evacuated with dogs.I saw some staff members who had literally worked and been on their feet all day until at least 10pm. You truly showed you care about your guests and your community Renaissance - THANK YOU.We have stayed here several times, this time for three weeks and we are always made to feel at home & welcome.The pool area is great and relaxing, the lobby large and open but still inviting and welcoming. Rooms are spacious and clean.In fact, we will be back in December!I had one minor issue with my tub draining slowly - this was taken care of right away.The only other issue I would say, may not be considered by some to be an issue.I left out a sports style water bottle which I had been reusing instead of buying several small bottles. Also I am a huge Disney fan and had some diet coke bottles from the parks which were 'share a coke at the Castle', I left these on my desk to pack them when we left.All of these bottles were removed by housekeeping. I had assumed that if they were not in the trash they would be fine. The water bottle - not an issue, but the coke bottles I had really wanted to keep & couldn't replace due to Irma & park closures.A note that housekeeping will clear away things like this would have been good & I would have put them in a drawer.
We were able to get a room at the Renaissance during hurricane Irma. We had previously booked at the Rosen Inn which in my experience was a roach infested motel-avoid at all costs. The Renaissance was clean and decorated beautifully. There was a huge area inside with seating galore under soft light fixtures and decorations that make you feel relaxed and at home. There is also a bar with large flat screen televisions to appease the sports fans. The staff was friendly and offered every accommodation they could as we weathered through the storm. The restaurants were buffet style and due to the Hurricane we had eaten at them for breakfast and dinner (we would have attended for lunch but we were stuffed from breakfast). The food is amazing!!! I would love to get my hands on their corn chowder and banana bread pudding recipes, so delicious. If we were to stay at a hotel in Orlando, hands down it would be the Marriott Renaissance.
We typically stay at this hotel a few times each year when we visit Sea World, and this visit was yet another great experience all around. The staff is very helpful and friendly, the rooms are great, and the pool area is perfect for families with kids. Tiffany (bartender at the pool bar) is particularly awesome... she went above and beyond to provide us with great service during our stay.If you are heading to Sea World, make sure you stop by the front desk and get the complimentary Quick Que passes so you can skip the lines on the busiest rides. You can take the free shuttle over to the parks, or you can walk to Sea World in less than 5 minutes.
In spite of the large influx of evacuees, the hotel staff were helpful, friendly and professional. The Tradewinds restaurant was good -- the breakfast buffet had a nice selection. The rooms were clean and the bed comfortable.
