Beautiful venue wonderful personable staff
Renaissance was the best choice we could have made to host our wedding. COVID-19 changed our plans for our original day but Renaissance was there to help us make the best of it this year and also help us plan to celebrate with friends and family next year. We initially had Kelly when we first booked but with the changes in the industry we were connected with Laura. She picked up exactly where Kelly left off zero hiccups or back and fourth. It was if she was apart the planning from day one. Our micro wedding was perfect and the small dinner we hosted inside the library was stunning. Wait staff were friendly and very willing to help with anything we needed.Sent on 08/05/2020

The best venue
I wish it was easy to write a review regarding my service from Kelly-Jean, it isn't. She has been very helpful and accommodating since the first time I met her. We decided on The Renaissance based solely on our conversation with Kelly and her ability to add to our dream of the perfect wedding. I feel as if a friend is helping me to plan my wedding. She's helps to keep me on track with the small things I overlook, always has a recommendation for someone to help with every new idea I come up with. Often refining and representing it for more "WOW" effect. I would recommend Kelly and The Renaissance to anyone looking for a quality venue with professional service.Sent on 06/04/2019

Renaissance is the best for weddings
We had an amazing experience with the Renaissance Hotel in Albany. If you are getting married anywhere in downtown Albany, the Renaissance is your spot. The restaurant had amazing food for my groomsmen and the governor's suite was CLUTCH for the bridal party. Kelly was on point from the day we booked the hotel rooms and booked the Shelf for our rehearsal dinner. Contact Kelly for all your needs to be met. We can't thank them enough for all that they did for us. They accommodated our guests from start to finish and they even brought us a cooler to put food and beer on when we didn't have enough space in the suite! Hands down best decision we made for our wedding location.Sent on 05/07/2019
