Just returned from a West Coast junket and spent my last night at the Renaissance. It is the third or fourth time I have stayed at this hotel for one night or an extended period. Used a Cat 4 certificate for the stay over. Every time I come here this staff is impeccable. Very professional (Welcome, Mr...., thank you for being a Platinum member with marriott....we have placed you in an upgraded room that is so and so and anything we can do is our pleasure...and on and on. I don't know why this is onlt a Cat 4 hotel. It is very upscale and smartly detailed. It has a 'brand new' shine on it. It is well located to get to Long beach, beverly Hills, downtown LA or wherever. The plane noise...non existent. I can't believe how well insulated this hotel is. I can't hear a sound outside including planes landing nearby. Although I didn't use the Concierge Lounge during this stay, it is a nice CL and has good food.
If in the area, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to everyone.
