Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This Renaissance is one of the larger hotels in this particular brand and is one of the nicest. Rooms surround a 10-story central atrium that houses 3 restaurants/lounges, a Starbucks and FedEx. Check-in was efficient and thoughtful - I was granted an upgrade to a 1 bedroom suite as an Elite member. The room was comfortable and modern. The only downside (and one of just a few reasons I did not give this property 5 stars) is that "connecting doors" are very thin - you can clearly hear people in adjoining rooms. I used earplugs to sleep, which worked well. The Starbucks is a genuine store and has plenty of staff and seating. We did not eat on property other than breakfast one day - via room service. The meal arrived right on schedule and was perfectly prepared; however, the coffee was bitter. I used the fitness center and was very happy with its size (6 treadmills, 5 ellipticals, I think) and selection of free weights and machines. We had drinks at MIST in the evening and were very, very impressed with our server, Vivianna, who went out of her way to accommodate a special drink request. Ok, here are a few areas where they fell a little short: $25 resort fee is, in my opinion, excessive when 1) it was 35 - 50 degrees outside - way too cold for pool/hot tub and 2) even still, I did not see anything at this hotel that was extraordinary (e.g. river pool, wave pool, tennis, etc. Perhaps it was there, but again, it was too cold to go outside. Second, check out awkward bordering on rude. I went down around 7:30 to grab coffees and then walked over and requested to "check out" as I had hoped to just walk directly from our room to the car. The front desk clerk was the only person there, and I was the only guest. She looked at me and said the cards would be deactivated and inquired if I needed access to my room (a fair and good question). Here is where it went off the rails: I said no, that is ok, my wife is in the room, so she will let me in, whereupon she said, "well, then you CANNOT check out." I was completely perplexed by this response and asked why not? I travel all the time and check out then go grab my bags...she replied that as long as someone was in the room, I could NOT check out. I then asked her to clarify if that meant I had to bring my wife and all our luggage down before I could check out, and she said (in a brusque tone) - "if you want to". I said I would prefer not to do that but do I have a choice? I added that all I wanted was to get my bill. She replied that she could CLOSE OUT my account and give me the bill but reiterated that I could NOT check out until my wife and I left the room. What? Does that mean I have to come back again? To which she reluctantly said "no". Sheesh - why the hard time?? IT should have been clear - even if I was using the wrong terminology - that what I really wanted was to get my bill so I could simply depart from my room to my car!!
good sushi restaurant called Mist at the hotel. Shout out to Jessica who was a very attentive waitress at Mist. The restaurant also had the biggest screen TV, which was great for following the current sports action. Wine list was a little skimpy but sushi was good and reasonably priced.
This is a very large hotel and near sea world. Has three restaurants, one is American food, one is sushi and one is a sports bar. This place was very crowded and could use more staff. The front desk people are very nice. The sports bar food was fair. The America restaurant wasn’t open for dinner. Rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable but the walls are very thin and it’s noisy. I put the fan on high to drown out some noise. They have valet parking. They have a gift shop, ice cream shop, Fedex desk and a Starbucks.
We spend 7 days at this hotel. Service was great, the rooms and pool and water park were never too busy. The buffet breakfast was great, Aga was our favorite server! She was very sweet and even surprised us with cookies and milk in our room! We had a couple of issues with our key card getting into the parking at night and with our door that wasn’t locking one night. But they were all addressed appropriately and in a timely manner. We will definitely be back!
Terrific hotel , with a clean, contemporary feel. Breakfast is excellent with a variety of choices from well rounded to healthy. Dinner is good , but I would not recommend the japanese choice as it is not the best.Front desk staff is very good and Robert Niven is excellent, personable and professional. David @ the Seaworld desk is most helpful and enthusiastic.Main pool is very nice.Kids loved the ping/pong and billiards area[ I would add a second pool table] and the jacuzzis could be a bit warmer. Kids waterpark is in need of an update.Walk to Seaworld, shuttle to Aquatica water park [ kids loved it] and free shuttle to Point Orlando to catch a movie or different cafes. Make a shuttle reservation.Rooms are really nice and well cleaned. Views to Seaworld are nice, but the opposite side are also okay with the pool or woods.We were treated very well and look forward to returning.
