Following the opening of the popular shopping, dining and entertainment complex Patriot Place, adjacent to the New England Patriots’ home, Gillette Stadium, the Renaissance swooped in to provide upscale accommodations. Comfortably appointed rooms offer basic, better-than-average amenities, but the hotel’s real advantage is its prime location — amid the action in Foxboro and as a midway point between Boston and Providence. Restaurant and bar Twenty8 serves New England favorites with a sporty ambiance and a festive terrace overlooking the stadium. The eight-room Spa Epoche uses Aveda products, and there’s a 24-hour fitness center overlooking the indoor pool.
In the Area
The Renaissance “Navigator” — a local Boston suburbs guy — authors his own tip sheet online with recommendations for local activities, as the draw here is the hotel’s surroundings. The hotel’s key positioning next to Gillette Stadium is ideal for enjoying concerts and Patriots’ games, as well as the hopping restaurants, nightlife and shopping in Patriot Place. Popular Boston spots like Davio’s and Skipjack’s have opened South Shore outposts here, and they’re easily accessible from the hotel.
How to Get There
Check in was quick and efficient.
Stayed 2 nights. Room on the 5 th floor was ok. There is definitely wear and tare
In the rooms. The bed was comfortable. There were 2 chairs and and a couple of small round end tables good size Tv along with desk. Great for 2 people. This may seem a bit nit picky but only 2 sets of towers in room, was not getting service so asked for 3 more sets so we didn’t need to ask more then once. They brought 2 bath towels nothing else. I’ve done a lot of travel for business usually in a 3 star hotel and have never had this issue before. My advise is to not be so stingy with the towels. Very inconvenient.
Breakfast in the restaurant on first floor was good. Both mornings had the buffet and they also offer additional items, you just need to ask your server.
I would stay again and recommend to others .
Hosted a business meeting here and while the location was convenient, the experience was challenging from the very start. My location needs were not flexible. My experience with this team (that manages several properties) ensures I'll avoid the entire portfolio of owned locations in the future. It was so much work and way too much time for a poor experience.
The Sales Associate kept trying to get me to book the event at the Hilton Garden Inn (which the sales team is also responsible for booking) even though I was very clear that property was not appropriate for this event. It took WEEKS of calls and conversations to get the event booked at the Renaissance. We were told space was available at both properties but the Sales Director kept pushing another property. Efforts to talk with others in the sales office (supervisor/manager) were met with no responses to voicemails or emails. Makes me think the incentives were driving the bus and not customer needs.
The contract had errors and back and forth with more errors. The actual meeting space was OK but milk and cream for coffee were both curdled. They fixed it but the attention to detail was missing at all points.
Final bills were not received in a timely manner. Requests for copies of the bills went unanswered for 2 weeks and 4 requests. While my location needs were not flexible my experience with this team (that manages several properties) ensures I'll avoid the entire portfolio of owned locations in the future. So much work and way too much time for a poor experience.
Hotel was very nice - greeted when we walked in, easy to park - awesome location outside the stadium and but easy to get to everything! My only complaint was that we were on the 5th floor and 1 elevator broken and the hotel was full to capacity with wedding parties etc......so the wait for the elevator was very discouraging!
My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary at the hotel this past Saturday evening. A wedding was going on, which was fun to see. It was well managed as I was not able to hear the event or it's attendees at any time.
Our check-in was fast and friendly, and the staff gave us recommendations for restaurants, including their own. The hotel is attached to a series of restaurants and some shopping, but the view of the stadium is most amazing.
The room was spacious and clean and the staff we met on the floors were friendly.
Breakfast the next morning provided an amazing view, and service was spot on. The food was great and tasty as well.
We will return!
My wife and I stayed here a couple of nights, for the opening game for the Patriots vs the Texans. Our stay started with the valet parking, which was easy, as was the check-in. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the view of the stadium was magnificent. We had breakfast in the restaurant, which had some good selections, and crispy bacon, my favorite. The hotel is located near many shops and restaurants. We also enjoyed the lounge and the friendly staff there.
