I just returned from a four day training session for the Census Bureau. The room was great, the service was good... My stay was completely paid for by the Census Bureau. When I checked in I was asked for my credit card - they needed a copy for incidentals. (I wouldn't have any). When I checked out they tried to...

OK, so the title may not exactly coincide with my rating, or the fact that I will and plan to stay here again. I need to explain. I have stayed here several times. I will stay here again, and am scheduled to do so. I like this property. This year, they have been undergoing renovations and I was placed in...

There is nothing wrong with this hotel whatsoever, but we were taken for a ride and taken advantage off by the valet guy Sam. We asked him to call us a cab to go to the beach and a few minutes later, a van from "Quick and Safe" arrived. We wanted a cab, but Sam told us not to worry...

Thank you for your feedback regarding the transportation issue you encountered. The hotel uses numerous car/taxi services for our guests, normally without incident. I will follow up with the owner of this service as well as my team so this does not take place in the future as I agree it is unacceptable. I am glad that our staff were...

My visit to the Renaissance was in conjunction with a cruise in August of 2014. The check in process was smooth. The clerk was personable and helpful. Because of delays at the Atlanta airport we arrived late. The restaurant was closed earlier than advertised on their signage so we had to find a meal and drinks elsewhere. The nearby Bimini...

I wish I had the opportunity to have stayed for more than one night. The room was without fault. The view was peaceful. There were plenty of Wanna-Be's and Carpetbagger guests, but once I was in my room, peace and tranquility comforted my soul and brought with them a wonderful stay at a place that was more than I expected....

We stayed at the Renaissance before a convention cruise. We arrived at the hotel after a challenging day flying after 5 p.m. and was immediately greeted by the valet. He took our bags and walked us to the counter, where we were told our room wasn't ready. There were many of our convention friends around so after talking for about...

This was place was booked for one night earlier this month for a next day cruise from the cruise terminal across the street. I picked it as other family members in my group were staying there and recommended it.

Rating this hotel isn't easy as I seem to have mixed impressions about it. Arriving at the hotel, I was impressed at the entrance and the reception area and felt confident that my room would be of a similar quality. Getting to the room, I found that while the room was quite nice and clean, the bathroom definitely needed revamping...

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent experience with our hotel.

This is by far the worst hotel I've ever been to. First off, let's start with a nice $25 fee for self parking, a night. Then you get to the room. The room is decent sized, but the bed is not comfortable at all, with fluffy pillows that nobody could sleep in. Wanna use the mini-fridge? Nope! because for some...
