    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.

    Perfection

    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.

    Wonderful experience from beginning to end

    I planned my son's wedding in September 2020. The reception was held at The Renaissance - Burnham Hall. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience planning and pulling off a wedding during a pandemic. Jordan was our wedding coordinator. She is a true professional. Every detail was planned, every question answered, every email replied to, every concern was addressed. The wedding was beautiful, fun and safe. The food was fantastic, the staff bent over backward to be helpful, the facilities are stunning. There is a reason this is the #1 place in Cincinnati to hold a wedding. You will never regret having your wedding at The Renaissance.
