The best spot in Chicago

This deluxe hotel may not be the most luxurious, although definitely a touch of luxury here and nothing below deluxe-luxury, but you cannot beat the location. I have visited Chicago tens of times for business and pleasure and hadn't noticed this central hotel. If comparably priced, going forward, I will definitely stay here every time. And, it's right on the pedway - bonus!! The Aveda bath amenities, bellman service, check-in service, the lobby bar, tons of great shops and oldest building in Chicago right out the back door and river right outside the front were some of my favorite things about this hotel!

We chose the renaissance hotel to celebrate my husbands 60th bday. We have stayed here before and once again the Renaissance did not disappoint. Gabby checked us in and asked what we were celebrating and we told her my husbands bday and when we arrived to our room she had sent up a bottle of Prosecco and some cookies. It’s so nice she cared enough to do that so THANK YOU GABBY. We will for sure make the renaissance the only hotel we come to when visiting Chicago !!!

Pleased with stay

Maybe the fact that the first upgrade I've received since the merger with SPG was at this facility colors my review. I'm titanium elite and was upgraded to a Revier suite which overlooked the river. Nice room and comfortable. 3 TV's was a bit overkill though. Staff was friendly. Lounge gets pretty crowded for breakfast. "Rooftop" bar on the 3rd floor was nice. Good service and a nice Manhattan. Location was great. Although there is not much of a view (river is not really that exciting). Note too that the property is beginning to get a bit tired. Settee had stains on it and shower floor grout is a little gross.

Fantastic hotel stay

This is an incredible hotel. The staff is amazing, especially the front desk staff. Mahogeney and Levi went above and beyond by helping me with my phone. They were super friendly and helpful.
The room had an amazing view and the bedding was superb. We had drinks at the rooftop bar and the bartender even mixed a custom drink for me. I will, if given the chance, stay here again.

Very Friendly and helpful Staff

We had a wonderful stay at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel. The room was very pleasant and comfortable, food and service in the Club Lounge was outstanding. Every one of the hotel employees which we had contact with was extremely pleasant and friendly as well as always being very helpful. I recommend this hotel.
