Perfect venue for our wedding!

The Renaissance Hotel was beyond beautiful, the staff was amazing, and working with their wedding coordinator (Danielle) was excellent! 10/10 - Would 100% recommend you have your wedding here. The planning process was so easy with the Renaissance. They were there to answer questions every step of the way, and they were able to offer up suggestions to make our planning process even better.

The food was absolutely delicious! We had tons of rave reviews from our guest on the portion sizes of the meals and the quality of food. When we went in for our tasting, we were blown away by the flavors. You can’t make a wrong choice with the food options they have! We even had a farewell brunch with family and out of town guests the next day, and it was just as delicious. To add to just how amazing the service is at the hotel, my 90 year old grandmother wanted a scoop of ice cream for dessert at the wedding and a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast the next morning, and they did it without any hesitation or question.

All around, the service at the Renaissance was above and beyond. We had a small snafu where I sent an item out for drycleaning Friday night that I needed the next morning, and apparently the local cleaner wouldn’t have it done until Monday. I still have no idea what happened, but the hotel got my item back from the dry cleaner while we were at the rehearsal dinner down the street. Crisis averted!

I can’t rave enough about the experience with the Renaissance hotel. Between myself and my husband, our parents, and all of our guests, everyone was thrilled with the service and experience.

A fantastic event!

Not only is this one beautiful venue, Jordan Adams, and the entire Hotel staff did a great job of making our event one that was fun, beautiful and full of wonderful memories! Joran is a fantastic person to work with . She was professional, incredibly easy going and flexible to the desires of everyone involved in our event planning.

When we walked into the Renaissance we knew immediately that this was the place we wanted to have our wedding reception. We love the old charm and character the building offers. The ballroom is absolutely STUNNING. We also felt that we would be taken care of and that is exactly how you want to feel when planning a wedding. It was also a bonus to be able to crawl upstairs at the end of the night and not have to worry about shuttles.

We had to postpone our date TWO TIMES and the staff were very accommodating. We originally worked with Nikki before the pandemic hit and then began to work with Jordan. Both ladies were great to work with. Jordan picked up and finalized things as the big day drew near. It was very refreshing to see her familiar face when we got back to the Renaissance after the ceremony. She kept things moving and made sure we were taken care of all night long. EVERYONE that worked our wedding night (wait staff, bartenders, valet, etc) were all so friendly. Not just to the wedding party; but they were friendly to all of our wedding guests. That really was a true testament of how they are as a wedding venue and a business. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Renaissance for weddings or any event.
