We had the best experience at the Renaissance for our wedding. Chelsea, Jillian, and Heather were all incredible and made both the planning and the actual wedding day seamless and perfect. Every detail was considered and we really felt taken care of from start to finish. The hall is gorgeous and our friends are still talking about how much they loved it. The event space is on its own floor separate from the rest of the hotel so you really feel like you have the place to yourself which is unique from other hotels. I HIGHLY recommend the renaissance!

My daughter selected this venue for the wedding reception because she loved the tall wide windows, the high ceilings and the location in the seaport area of Boston. We were very happy with our beautiful suites, the service, the quality of the food and drink and the friendliness of the staff. We worked with Sarah Traub along with our wedding planner, Courtney Graham and were most pleased with our the Renaissance. Many guests commented on how they loved this seaport area of Boston and remarked they would return at some point in the future.

The whole Renaissance team, especially Sarah, Ingrid, Julie, were phenomenal. They made sure our every need was attended to..no ask was too much. They made us feel at home and made sure we didn't worry about anything.

The location itself is fantastic, I love the Seaport area and it is right next to the water and restaurants. The layout is great too, but again, it was the team and their service.. throughout the planning process and right up to the last minute that made this an amazing experience.

Words cannot describe how amazing it was to work with everyone at the Renaissance! Their attention to detail was impeccable and we could not have asked for more. From our first meeting with Lindsay until the day of the wedding, the process was nothing short of flawless! Even weeks after the wedding, people are still commenting about how delicious the food was and how stunning the venue looked :) Ashley, we cannot praise you enough...you are AMAZING at what you do! Thanks to everyone at the Renaissance for making our wedding absolutely perfect!

The Renaissance is an amazing facility to hold a wedding. They are the most helpful and accommodating individuals a bride could ask for. When my mother had issues with the first tasting, they offered us a second! Everything was customized to my specifications and when we walked in the door after being announced, it was as though Ingrid had made my exact vision come true.
The food was amazing and I am continuing tor receive compliments about the hospitality of the servers. If I could do it all over again, I would not change a thing.

Thank you to everyone at the Renaissance!

Other great highlights of the venue:
Amazing views of the harbor and Boston skyline.
Many great, fun spots for photos in and around the hotel!

We had such a wonderful time at our wedding, and the staff at the Hotel worked around the clock to ensure our wedding was the best day of our lives. The space was great, the food was excellent, the overall decor matched my theme of the night. But all of these elements aside, the details that the hotel staff provided and the assistance they provided made the night go so smoothly and made me much less stressed than I pictured myself as the bride being. They accommodated our every need as well as the needs of our guests, and we have gotten nothing but the best praise from our guests as to how wonderful and elegant of a wedding we had!

Thank you and XO!!!

The staff at the Renaissance could not have been more helpful in planning our wedding. They made the reception really easy for us to plan and made sure the whole night ran smoothly. Their event staff has a lot of experience so I knew our wedding about be in good hands. A lot of my guests commented that they had never had restaurant quality food at a wedding before. I was really happy that the food served to our guests was of the same quality as at our tasting. The location was also perfect, close to major highways and the airport. Most of our guests choose to stay over so having the reception at a hotel made that very easy.

The Renaissance hotel was the PERFECT place to have our reception. It was in a great location that was easily accessible from both the airport and all major highways. We fell in love with the modern decor of the hotel immediately. We also liked that there was a parking lot for $5 directly across the street from the hotel, so we didn't have to worry about burdening our guests with typical "Boston" parking prices. Our sales manager Lindsay Leete and Banquet coordinator, Ingrid Berberian really came through for us. The food was absolutely amazing and we are still getting compliments from many of our guests. The day of the wedding went incredibly smooth. Ingrid and Laurie (Banquet manager) coordinated with all of our vendors to make sure that everything was set up exactly how we had planned. They handled all of our "special requests" without hesitation. Our wedding could not have been any better. Thank you so much to everyone at the Renaissance for making it such a memorable event.

If I had written this review on the day after my wedding, I would've given five stars all around. We had an amazing event. Yes, the food was fabulous. I felt like we received alot of extra value with this downtown venue since we were given so many complimentary add-ons with our package, as well as bonus reward points to put toward future Marriott stays. The suite was amazing and our guests loved the location.

In the weeks following our event, however, we had a few billing issues arise that took several e-mails/phone calls and lots of prodding on my part to get worked out. We had paid the balance in full for our wedding 3 days prior to the event, but the Renaissance attempted to bill me a week later with a rather large amount that I could not imagine we actually owed. When I asked for an itemized receipt (several times), they could not manage to provide one. After going back and forth during my honeymoon and after, we finally resolved it and they reimbursed the charges to my credit card. They also attempted to charge my parents for their hotel room that was included as "complimentary" in our package/contract. I do not think these issues would've happened if our event hadn't changed hands a few weeks prior to our date, as Sarah was not fully aware of everything we had finalized with Ashley. That being said, Sarah was very sweet and handled these issues with care. We eventually worked it all out. All in all, we were really happy with our wedding and would plan it again at Renaissance in a heartbeat.
