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
A very good place to stay. Enjoyed a lot. It would have been better if water filter/refiller are easily accessible in Hotel as it is a very dry climate in Las Vegas. Also, Kindly include Resort Fees inclusive to the hotel reservation.
I took a friend to a Vegas trip. We are not gamblers and we want it to be a bit low key and so we stayed here. I have stayed in this hotel before and had good memories and so this time I suggested that we stay here.
The place is very clean and well maintained. It's also very functional. We were given tickets for the monorail, wine and whisky tasting and what not. The monorail station is probably 5 minutes away by walk (but just recognize that even on the strip, the monorail station is buried in the deep end of hotels. So wear comfortable shoes). Due to my status, we also had access to the lounge. It serves great breakfast in the morning (one of the mornings there was an omelette station) and also some snacks in the late afternoon (great meat balls, Kudos, Renaissance).
Next time I am in town, there is no doubt that I will come here again.
If you don’t mind being far off the Strip, this hotel is a great find! Whoever they hired to decorate the lobby and pool
area knocked it out of the park! There was a comfortable business area where you could set up a laptop and work. The restaurant served a delicious breakfast with a buffet option. The pool was heated ( it was 65 degrees outside in March), with fun outdoor games and a large tv that was streaming March Madness games. There is a coffee shop, but it had limited hours. The rooms had coffee also. The rooms had been redecorate but showed their age much more than the lobby and pool area. The bathrooms were especially dated. But we lived our stay other than that!
I stayed here for business. It's location is very close to the convention center, but otherwise feels off the beaten (strip) path. The lobby is very modern, attractive. The woman who checked me in was very great. When I went to my room, the carpet wasn't clean and the hallways looked like they needed a carpet replacement. The room was adequate, but dated. The concierge level was very basic and not worthy of a Renaissance. It wasn't even clear where it was given the door looked like a janitor's room. The selection was basic and there were not any to go cups next to coffee.
For the past 13 years, I've traveled to Las Vegas for work events and stayed at many hotels each year. For my purposes, the Renaissance has been one of the best experiences during my business trips. This property’s location is why I chose this hotel. It’s just steps from the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) and easily walkable.
There are many hotel options in Vegas, but one of my first choices is the Renaissance. This hotel is centered around the business traveler – adequate business center, no casino (big plus, no smoke!) nice gym, bar, and restaurants plus a friendly staff.
The check in process was swift. The front desk associate, Marjorie, was very nice and helpful answering all my questions. She even upgraded me to the club level access since I am a Gold Elite member. Definitely a big plus and made my stay more enjoyable. The only downside I had was the paper-thin walls, which I could hear my loud neighbors talking and rustling around in their room. Otherwise, it was a comfortable stay.
