A dream rehearsal dinner
We originally booked the Renaissance for our hotel block for our guests, which was a fairly easy experience overall. Our coordinator Erica was helpful, prompt, and responsive when we had some problems with Marriott's reservation system. In addition, she and Patrice were very helpful when we had people call last minute to get rooms within the block. All of our guests that stayed in the hotel were surprised at how spacious the rooms were given the deal we got on the price! We booked a suite for ourselves because I had my bridal party getting ready with me, and it was an absolute dream. It was amazingly spacious and beautiful, especially the marble bathroom. My photographer even used the marble counters to stage some detail photographs.Sent on 12/31/2018
About a month before the wedding, we were having trouble finding a low-key rehearsal dinner option for our budget and guest size. I called Erica and she set us up with a lovely, casual rehearsal dinner in the lobby court bar with heavy appetizers and drinks. My guests had a wonderful and relaxing time thanks to the surprisingly intimate setup and incredibly talented and kind staff. They even took the time to get know me and my now husband. Thanks to the Renaissance team, we had a fantastic evening getting to catch up with friends and family and a stress-free location to get ready for our wedding. Thank you to Erica and her team! I can't recommend them enough!

Our wedding at the Renaissance was absolutely perfect! We were in the gold ball room. Jennifer was a big help throughout the entire process. However, sometimes her responses were slower than desired (literally the only difficult thing working with this vendor). The food was EXCELLENT! The venue was beautiful. The room was large and no one was on top of each other. They worked with our prices and were able to be flexible on their minimum to stay within our budget. I would highly recommend and would pick this vendor 1000x over again.Sent on 10/10/2019

I was very happy with the planning process and how everything turned out on the night of our wedding. Tanya Clark was the wedding coordinator that I worked with and she was very helpful. I had been to many weddings before and have been to 8 more since our big day last year and the Renaissance is about a 4 out of 5 in comparison to the other reception locations.Sent on 10/13/2008
