Great hotel conveniently located to shows and restaurants! The restaurant was pretty good at cocktail/dinner hour. However, the breakfast buffet was overpriced and not very good. There should be less expensive breakfast choices.

Nice hotel, close to everything

Have stayed at this hotel before and it never disappoints. Also it's close to theaters and great restaurants.

The hotel was a big disappointment.

Pros: The bartender and wait staff was friendly-incredibly limited menu but they do their best
We usually stay at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square. The Renaissance is close to everything and a Marriott property as well so we thought it would be comparable. The rooms were more money (over $500 per night) and the hotel was lacking. The check in area which has a small (single) elevator to go up to the hotel is awkward and an annoying bottleneck the entire time you are there-whether coming or going it's a problem. Additionally, at this price point you expect a full service hotel. There was no room service, etc. To top off the bad experience, on Sunday morning the shower water was ice cold and there was no explanation from the staff when questioned.

Great place for NY Times Square fun and experience

Arrived at 6am and they immediately put us in a nice room. We were able to relax and hit the buses. They greeted us when we left and returned to the motel every day.

Beautiful hotel in Times Square

The Reniassance was a wonderful choice for a hotel. Close to Times Square, Broadway shows and only steps from a subway stop. Comfortable rooms and wonderful staff. Will definitely stay here again!

Great girls weekend

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Overall, we enjoyed our stay here. The front desk was able to accommodate us into a room with two double beds, as per requested on our reservation and we were impressed with our room and its view of Times Square. It was clean, updated and comfortable. Only problem we had encountered was with security. We arrived back to our room one afternoon to discover housekeeping had left our room open. A little scary for women traveling alone, but discovered nothing was missing and it appeared as if no one else had been into our room. I notified management and was promised that they would look into it.

Wonderful Experience

This hotel was absolutely amazing. From the time we checked in we received apples #40for the Big Apple#41 until we checked out we had such a great experience. The doorman Amos always had the best suggestions of places to eat and was very helpful in getting us taxis. Literally steps away from Times Square and directly across the street is a great market where we got fresh fruit for breakfast each day. Right behind the hotel you can get tickets for the doubledecker bus tours which was very convenient. The rooms were spacious and had VERY comfortable beds. Had a beautiful view of the city as well. The bathrooms were in excellent condition and very up to date. I felt very safe in the hotel as the main lobby was located on the 2nd floor. Overall my first trip to New York was amazing and Im so grateful we had such a wonderful hotel.
