Potentially awesome view....

The hotel was beautiful. Quick check in, wonderful restaurant, great location, quiet (despite being in Time Square), and comfy. The only downfall was (our main reason for picking that location) the view was obstructed by filthy windows. The windows on the outside were disgusting. Everything was seen through a layer of funk. For the price of the room, the windows should be clean enough to see out. We wanted to see Times Square!!

Loved this hotel so much!!

I came with my daughter to se Hamilton and we absolutely lived staying here. Being a Marriott member we were allowed to check in early since our flight arrived in the morning. They definitely treated us well while we were staying and the location can it be beat. I usually stay at Renaissance Midtown but this hotel was just fantastic. Lobby bar was great and we enjoyed the Cheeseboard and wings along with the views.

Location is amazing, quality of services simply suck

Only one elevator worked (they have three) over a two day stay in a 26 story hotel....yeah that sucked. Fitness center equipment is outdated and worn out. Staff is a bit grumpy and need to attend charm school

TeamMarriott, Manager at Renaissance New York Times Square Hotel, responded to this review

Dear GAPIII3, We are delighted to have been given the chance to host you. However, we do apologize that the elevators were down for unexpected maintenance during your visit. We certainly understand your frustration and apologize for the temporary inconvenience. We assure you that we are working to get these running as quickly, but also as safely, as possible. Additionally, it is not a common response we receive regarding our service, and what you described does not meet our standards. We will review your comments regarding our service with our associates to ensure we are only providing the exceptional hospitality we strive to give all of our guests. Lastly, thank you for your candor regarding our gym facilities. We will note this for review by the appropriate individuals. Thank you once more. We appreciate hearing from our guests and hope you will stay with us again for a much better experience. Monet Cockburn Operations Manager

Excellent Location

Don't miss R lounge which can give you an overview for times square. As a Marriott titanium member we can have free full breakfast in R lounge and appetizers during dinner time in weekdays. In weekend, the only choice is 1000 points in lieu of no providing free breakfast. Room was spacious, elegantly decorated, and comfortable. Air-conditioner worked quietly. Next to 42 street-times square metro which has a lot of access for metro lines.

We are grateful for the perfect rating and look forward to welcoming you back the next time you visit New York. Monet Cockburn Operations Manager
