If you’ve only ever been to Las Vegas for a bachelor (or bachelorette) party, it can be hard to remember that plenty of people come here for work—after all, Las Vegas is a popular destination for conventions and not everyone in town wants to navigate through a casino floor on the way to their hotel room. Enter the Renaissance, a non-gaming hotel that’s just steps from the Convention Center, and a good mile from the nonstop partying that happens on the Strip (although there’s a monorail that will zip you there in five minutes). Room décor at the Renaissance is standard for a chain but the rooms are big, modern, and clean, with decent-sized desks for catching up on email. The hotel also has a good gym and a small pool as well as three dining options: a café, a casual lunch spot, and the well-regarded ENVY steakhouse.
In the Area
While most Renaissance guests will be spending their days at the Convention Center, many will be heading to the Las Vegas Strip come nightfall. There’s a monorail stop a few minutes’ walk from the hotel; the train runs frequently. Once there, almost all hotels on the Strip offer every kind of gambling, from slot machines to $100-minimum-bet poker, but there are plenty of gambling alternatives, too. Shoppers who love designer labels should head to the Shoppes at the Palazzo, the upscale collection at the Venetian, where there’s also an enormous Barney’s. The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art, which hosts a series of temporary exhibits coordinated with some of the best museums in the world, is further down the Strip. Fremont Street, home to older casinos with cheaper tables and a nightly light show displayed on the street’s curved roof, is a 15-minute cab ride away.
How to Get There
My wife and I made a huge mistake transferring to this hotel after spending two nights in true luxury at the Four Seasons. My wife was attending a conference at the Renassaince, so it seemed to make sense to change locations to this hotel. What a letdown. The standard room the first night had a large carpet stain beside the bed, perhaps vomit or red wine, not sure. The rooms have a very dated decor, but the beds were comfortable. The second night we were upgraded to a suite, which was very large and comfortable. However, housekeeping was again a problem, In the suite's second bathroom there was un-flushed yellow urine in the toilet, so obviously not cleaned. The positive to the hotel were Yussef at the front desk who was excellent. Marriott seems to have spent money updating the exterior, but lipstick treatment on the rooms. Not clean enough for us, so will not return
I especially enjoyed the lounge on the 15th floor, one of the best presentations of food and beverage I’ve seen lately. Erica was extremely helpful and the team very friendly.
Dinner was great too sitting at the bar. Johnny took great care me, and the service was outstanding!
I must say I was a little surprised by the robot that delivered me coffee and other items for my room. I believe her name was Priscilla. I ran in to her again in the elevator. She seems friendly ????.
I have stayed in this hotel a few times and the service was great each time. The staff is very accommodating. My boys also thought the robot taking care of our room service was pretty cool. As far as the facility, the rooms can really use some updating and the bathrooms definetly needs to be remodeled.
