Fodor's Expert Review Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel

3400 Paradise Rd., Las Vegas, Nevada, 89169, USA See on Map

Everything is intimate at this nongaming Rat Pack-inspired hotel off the Strip on Paradise Road. There are only 578 rooms and suites, and, though they received touch-ups in 2013, most of them are smaller than the standard accommodations on the Strip. Bathrooms are diminutive, too, but do come with separate tubs and glass shower stalls. Even the pool is small. The property lacks a casino but has everything to suit a business traveler's needs, including the superb ENVY Steakhouse and a 24-hour fitness center.

room

It claims to be the largest smoke-free non-gaming hotel in the area, and it’s a popular place to stay for convention-goers. Deluxe accommodations, stylish and sophisticated modern design and rooms that serve as a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city, Renaissance Las Vegas is everything a savvy business traveler expects from a Marriott property.

The Renaissance caters to business people in town and will coordinate meetings and events for groups of any size. From arranging a meeting space to catering to live entertainment, networking has never been easier.

bathroom

The bathroom vibe is spa-like, with modern amenities like Aveda products to please the discerning traveler. The presidential suite offers even more privacy, with his and hers bath.

lobby

A cool boutique-hotel environment greets guests here, and the fact that it’s non-gaming automatically dials down the frenetic energy found Strip resorts.

pool

There’s a resort-style pool with a fire pit, where you can order wine while working on your tan.

gym

24-hour access to a gym outfitted with cardiovascular equipment and free weights.

dining

ENVY The Steakhouse has received accolades as one of the best steakhouses in Las Vegas (and that’s saying something in a city with stiff competition). Dishes are made with locally sourced ingredients, and the meat, from Angus filets to bone-in rib eyes, are top-shelf. If you’re looking for more comfort food, Grill 55 fits the bill.

drinking

There’s a social function space where you can get a pre-dinner glass of wine, or try out seasonal cocktail menus from Grill 55 or the bar at ENVY.

YOU SHOULD KNOW The Renaissance is usually packed when there’s a convention in town, so book early. The Strip is not walkable, so if you’re here to play hooky and want to go off-property, best get an Uber or a cab.

LOCATION

Getting Around

The Convention Center is a half-mile walk, but you’d need transportation to get to other Strip properties.


Restaurants

For a change of pace, head downtown and check out Pawn Plaza (12-minute drive), where the TV show Pawn Stars was born. There are many dining options here, including the recently opened Good Pie. For one of the best dining experiences in Las Vegas that’s not on the Strip, check out Carson Kitchen (14-minute drive).

Bars

Go bar hopping downtown at Velveteen Rabbit (10-minute drive) is a whimsical watering hole with lots of literary and Victorian-era references and an outstanding cocktail program. ReBar (11-minute drive) down the street is all about kitsch. Everything on and in the bar is for sale, including bar glasses, tchotchkes and the furniture.

WHY WE LIKE IT

If you’re here on business, this is a great place to stay. Its proximity to the convention center makes it ideal after a long day on the convention floor.
