Renaissance Philadelphia

Booking the Renaissance Philadelphia Downtown Hotel for our rehearsal dinner turned out to be one of our best decisions! When we first started looking for rehearsal dinner venues in Old City, we reached out to almost a dozen different places. The Renaissance really stood out to us because of the amazing communication we had with their catering sales manager Samantha S. Samantha replied to all of our emails right away and answered all of our questions consistently for the months leading up to our rehearsal dinner. She went above and beyond regarding the requests we made for the weekend and worked with the timeline we gave her. Even though our event was a small rehearsal dinner, Samantha treated us as if we were having a 300 person event at their venue, making us feel prioritized. Our rehearsal dinner was held in a private room with a large window over looking the park next to the Second Bank. Everyone enjoyed the food and the servers were amazing!

Not only did she help put together our rehearsal dinner, Samantha also helped us set up a room block with the hotel, a welcoming drinks gathering, and an after party. Both of which were held in the hotel's main lobby bar. Our guests enjoyed their stay and complimented the hotel's cleanliness.

We highly recommend booking a stay or event here. They truly take the stress out of planning!

Great hotel for room block and after party! Sam is awesome.

We chose The Renaissance for our main hotel room block, and for our after-party, and we are so glad we did! We were choosing between The Renaissance and The Kimpton, and one meeting with Sam made it a clear choice. They allowed us to have our after-party at their bar, and gave us our own space across the lobby, without requiring a food and drink minimum or reservation fee. They also gave out welcome bags like pros - even called guests who had checked in early to get them! The service was fabulous throughout the whole weekend. OK now back to Sam...she is just amazing and a pleasure to work with, super responsive, accommodating, and thoughtful. I can't speak for weddings since we had ours at a nearby historic site, but I highly recommend The Renaissance for your hotel room block and/or after-party.
