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!

We could not have been happier with the team down at the Renaissance St. Louis Grand. From the initial meeting to the actual night, everything was done with detail and class. The food tasting was more then we could have imagined. We wanted to tweak one of their options and the chef took the time to prepare an item for us outside of what he had already prepared. Being able to take everything down to the venue the Tuesday before the wedding was such a great mind relaxer. After the final meeting on Tuesday, we knew there was nothing to worry about at the reception. I was floored when I walked in the venue after our ceremony and saw how gorgeous all the ideas turned out. The Crystal Ballroom could not be more charming. The food was AMAZING and we had sooo many compliments on the venue and how no one knew St. Louis had such a gem. Truly appreciated everything the staff did for us especially our coordinator Trish Foxe.

I had my wedding ceremony and reception in the Statler room of the hotel. You step into the room and it seems as if you transport into a different time. The details of the room are amazing. The pillars and floor are marble. The ceiling is wedgwood. No other venue in town compared to this room. I knew from the moment I walked in that this is where I was getting married.

The hotel staff is fabulous. Every person I worked with went above and beyond to make my day as perfect as it could be....and I must say that my day turned out exactly as planned. I could not have been happier with the results. If you book your wedding at this hotel, you will not be disappointed. I wish I could re-live the wedding day all over again. I had the best time!! And I received so many complements from family and friends on how the wedding turned out and how the staff performed.
