Charlottesville, Virginia
Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Stayed several nights for business and pleasure. Was exceptionally pleased with the beautiful, quiet and comfortable bedroom and appreciated the authentically friendly and accommodating staff. The daytime doorman couldn't have been sweeter or more attentive and the front desk staff went out of their way to ensure a pleasant experience.

Big, clean rooms. Great bed. The access to the city was the bonus for us as most places we wanted to see and eat at were within walking distance. Breakfast was more than adequate but was better early in the morning. Overall a pleasant stay for the five nights. Oh, the laundry service, while very good, was very very expensive!

Stayed as part of a work group for several nights. Everything was great. The service. The food. The rooms. Staff were exceptional and all spoke perfect English. Our rooms were cleaned to a beautiful standard. Definitely somewhere to return.

As a frequent Marriott traveler I have stayed at many of their properties. I found this Renaissance to be up to the high standards that Marriott sets. The property has taken on a modern architectural vision and carried it off beautifully. None of this would matter, however, without great staff; this property has great staff in abundance. I interacted with...

A good hotel (good food, good ambiance, great decor, great service). But the best thing about this hotel is that it is central. You can walk to many attractions from here like the Gothic Square, Las Ramblas, Basilica La Segrada. Location is everything and this hotel is spot on!

We only spent two days on this hotel but we were very satisfied. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The breakfast buffet was very good. Only negative is that the food in the restaurant/bar was not so good especially at its prices.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
