The only thing I did not like about them is that they changed their name to the Marriott and didn't let any of us know. Our guests were circling around and getting lost because they didn't think it was a Marriott. Other than that, it was good.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Renaissance St. Louis Grand Hotel, now known as the Marriott Grand, in the Crystal and Statler Ballrooms. Such an elegant venue! We couldn't have asked for better service! Their willingness to accommodate our wedding requests and our guests was awesome. We had some scares when we noticed months before our wedding the hotel was undergoing major renovations. We weren't informed of this prior to signing our contract, almost 18 months in advance, so we were quite disappointed and nervous. Hotel staff assured us the renovations should be completed prior to our wedding so we were definitely on pins and needles. Renovations were complete a couple of weeks before our wedding and we couldn't have been more pleased. The new space and rooms were magnificent! Our guests were ranting and raving about the quality of this hotel, the level of service that was provided, and the elegance of our wedding....a job well done! Thanks Marriott Grand for helping to make our wedding so special.

I booked the Statler Ballroom for my wedding reception one year before my December wedding. In October, the wedding coordinator Alyssa informed us the hotel would be under major renovations during the event, to include closing off the lobby and restaurant, and moving the main restaurant to the bar right outside our ballroom. They offered no explanation or compensation. We were overwhelmed because, having booked a year out, the Renaissance definitely knew they were undergoing this major renovation more than a week before it began. After some extreme emotions, Alyssa offered to move our wedding into the Crystal ballroom since it was further from the construction. It was not until the day before my wedding I found out the construction also meant no Bridal Suite-- we were given an "executive suite", which is their basic room with an attached entryway room and mini fridge.
Good points- Alyssa was a very talented day-off event coordinator, the ballroom was absolutely beautiful, staff (especially waiters and bellhops) were incredibly polite. The reception was beautiful and fun.
Bad points- the Renaissance turned out to be very self-interested. To not tell a bride the entire hotel is undergoing major renovations, and many of the elements included in the contract (such as the bridal suite) are no longer available until one month before is a breach of contract that no company should get away with. We chose this venue because the entire hotel was beautiful and we had many out of town guests. We would not have, had we known the entire lobby would be closed off. While this particular situation will probably not happen to future weddings, I would not want to deal with a business that is less than honest and upfront with such an important- and expensive- event. It's a shame, because the Renaissance itself is beautiful.

The Renaissance was an exceptional place to have our Wedding Reception. The Crystal Ballroom has no equal in St. Louis and it's a guarantee that the Reception will be something that every guest will remember. The hotel Wedding coordinators, Heather and Jennifer, were amazing. Professional and hard-working---they will take care of everything and you do not need to worry about any of the details for the special day!

I had both my ceremony and reception at the hotel. All the staff here is a delight to work with and they really went above and beyond to make my wedding day special. I was in St. Louis looking at other venues by myself, and had only recently communicated with this vendor before my trip -but didn’t have an appointment. I had some extra time and gave them a call and they were more than happy to accommodate and show me the venue space on the fly (like 5 minutes notice). I also had a very strict budget and they worked with me to give me the dream wedding I could afford. The wedding coordinator I was assigned to, Alyssa Como was also wonderful - I did not need to hire a wedding planner (or day of planner) with her- she made sure everything was taken care of and I did not spend my wedding worrying about anything other than enjoying myself!

My wife and I held our wedding reception at the Renaissance Grand Hotel in Downtown St. Louis in April 2014. Our wedding coordinator was Robert Olsterholm. Robert inherited our event from a previous coordinator. When we first learned that our original coordinator was no longer with the company, my wife and I were nervous. After an initially rocky transition, Robert took control and made sure no detail was forgotten. Robert is a fantastic coordinator who will take the time to make sure ever detail of your wedding is exactly the way you envision. The Renaissance itself overs a number of fantastic venues to host your wedding reception and cocktail hour. We hosted our cocktail hour on the 21st floor of the hotel which provided stunning views of downtown St. Louis. Our friends and family raved about the great food, historic venue, fantastic guest rooms, wonderful staff, and attention to detail that Robert and the Renaissance provided. While the price may not fit every budget, the Renaissance is willing to work with you to make sure you get the most for every dollar you spend. I would highly recommend the Renaissance, and Robert Olsterholm!

I had my reception in the Statler Ballroom at the Renaissance Grand Hotel in St Louis this past September and we had an amazing night! The food is excellent, the ballroom is gorgeous, complete with a built in bar, high ceilings, marble neutral color flooring, private restrooms, and huge windows and the staff is excellent. In specific, our Event Coordinator, Alyssa Como, was an absolute treat. Alyssa was not only fun to work with, she was on top of everything imaginable. She really thought of everything and clearly made it her personal goal to make sure our night was perfect. Her attention to detail, follow up, overall communication, and professionalism made the entire planning process a breeze. The Banquet Manager, chef, and wait staff were all awesome as well. Our night picked up more towards the end (dancing, etc) and the banquet manager allowed the DJ to play several extra songs to really close the night out on a high note. She was extremely accommodating, friendly, and a pleasure to work with. Although that may seem like a small detail, it definitely did not go unnoticed by myself, as well as the other guests.

We were thrilled with the Renaissance Grand. The ceremony room and Statler Ballroom are beautiful spaces. Everyone we worked with were utter professionals. John and Liz were amazing, as were all the servers and staff. Our guests raved about the food. The servers kept checking on my husband and I to make sure we were taken care of.

I did not have to worry about setup- we brought all our centerpieces, alter arrangements, aisle runners, decorations, and the hotel staff set them all up. Likewise, they collected and stored everything until the next day when I could pick them up. They were also very thoughtful- our gifts and a slice of wedding cake were brought to our bridal suite, and there was champagne waiting for us.

Having our wedding here was the best decision we made! I am very grateful to the staff of the Renaissance Grand for making it a memorable day!
