Stayed at Ren Downtown Denver (not the one by the old Stapleton airport location which is not too good). This one is great. Excellent downtown location close to everything. Only about 2 years old, so nice and new. In an old bank building with lots of character - fun restaurant and lobby/lobby bar with lots of style and quite upscale. Only downside was rooms are pretty tiny. But nicely appointed, and I didn't mind the smaller size room. CL is in a balcony area on 2nd fl overlooking the lobby. Very good offerings in CL and good service. Decent gym in basement. No pool. Pretty decent service overall. I got an early check in and late checkout without any problems even tho the hotel was full b/c of Broncos game. United delivered my bag directly to hotel and no problems there, either. I would stay again if in Denver. Definitely one of the better Marriott properties I've stayed at and a very nice representation of the Ren brand which is one of my favorite Marriott brands. Nice addition to downtown Denver along with other great Marriott properties such as Brown Palace and RC Denver. Rate was fairly reasonable for the area as well. A nice FS property but not huge, so somewhat cozy.
monisame, yes it does, I wrote a review on the Brown Palace a few months back. I found it to be a delightful hotel.
Here is the link:
Hi nationwide I has just saw your review and the pics !!! Thanks so much for sharing it. I was planing and Stay at Ren in Denver but I after reading your post, I will change to the Brown..
monisame, just to clarify, nationwide's stay in his review was at the Denver Renaissance near old Stapleton airport. That is not the Denver Renaissance Downtown. The Ren at Stapleton is not one I could recommend. I had a problematic stay there and would not stay again. It's older and had bad service when I was there (with the exception of the restaurant which had good service). I have a review floating around here somewhere of that hotel, and it's not a good review. The Ren Downtown is swanky and new and is excellent. But I also recommend the Brown Palace - it's a Denver institution!
Absolutely agree on the Brown Palace - this is a wonderful property.
- - - - Still kind of laughing/embarrassed that I posted an incorrect link the first time around.... Too much travel/jet lag - goofy - I think we can agree that Chicago isn't Denver:
I took my family there - on the advice of this community - and we really enjoyed it!!!!!
