We had the absolute BEST experience with the Renaissance Hotel, and with Kelly in particular. My husband and I had a unique vision for our wedding: 10 people, but still a special and classic ceremony to remember. Kelly made that happen, down to every last detail. She listened to what we wanted and found us the perfect room in the hotel (the Hyland Library), provided us with different room layout options, gave us a list of all the best places to take photographs around the hotel (which is gorgeous, by the way) and surrounding area, and was involved hands-on both the day before and the day of the wedding. Kelly made sure that we had access to the Hyland Library for as long as possible so that we could set up for the ceremony with our chosen décor. From the very first interaction that we had to after our wedding, Kelly let us know that she was there for us if we needed anything at all. She truly came through. We highly recommend this venue!Sent on 09/16/2018

Excellent - must have Kelly Jeannmarie as your manager!!
The venue is spectacular -truly unique. Not only that, the event manager Kelly is first rate - honestly, she asked every possible question, offered great suggestions, was always upbeat and implemented all of my personalized details to a T! We loved her and even our guests commented on how attentive she was!

The Renaissance was fabulous!!! All our guests who stayed at the Renaissance were very impressed by the renovation of the hotel, the atmosphere and of course the outstanding service! Kelly Jeanmaire was a complete pleasure to work with! Her professional, kind and very organized service left us with no worries that our guests would completely enjoy their stay. It was very comfortable for the wedding party to get ready there, the rooms were so spacious it was easy for all 11 women to get their hair and makeup done with 2 adjoining rooms. The hotel is beautiful - my daughter and her husband did photos in the lobby on the gorgeous staircase before their first look and it was simply elegant. I highly recommend the Renaissance Hotel!!Sent on 09/19/2018
