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.

The Renaissance Grand Hotel was absolutely beautiful and we had a great experience working with them. Katie Vreeland was our sales manager and John Nelleson was our event manager; Katie sold the place and John went above and beyond with delivering. In my other life, I am a corporate event planner and I was concerned that during my wedding I would be more of an event planner than a bride which was not the case at all. I completely trusted John and was able to really let go, relax, have fun and enjoy my wedding. The venue is absolutely stunning but the staff was incredibly hospitable and helpful. We brought a bunch of candy for a candy buffet, John and his staff turned it into beautiful decor and put the candy buffet together in a beautifully artistic way. He also put the flowers on our wedding cake and it looked beautiful! One of my favorite memories from that night was John finding me and my now husband to show us how they transformed the Crystal Ballroom from a ceremony to the reception; it was so nice to be able to share that moment before all of the guests saw it. I can't say enough about the Renaissance Grand Hotel, if you choose them you will not be disappointed!

I cannot say enough great things about the Renaissance Grand hotel and the Crystal Ballroom. Katie Vreeland was wonderful and easy to work with and our even manager Kristin Sanders was absolutely amazing. The banquet staff made our wedding even more impressive with their service and the food. All our wedding guests raved about the venue, the service and the food. They pride themselves on service at the Renaissance (and you definitely pay for it with the 24% gratuity), but it is well worth it!

The Renaissance Crystal Ballroom was an absolutely gorgeous venue for my wedding reception! The room is stunning. My experience with the staff, however, was not the best. Unfortunately, I was assigned several planners. The first two were a delight to work with, but the final planner was disorganized, unprofessional, and at times rude. I had to hire an outside planner to help with the final details because I did not trust that everything would go as I wanted it to. This is hopefully just a fluke though, because like I said, the other planners were great. Even though I didn't have the best experience with the planner I was given, I would recommend this venue. Classy, elegant, and beautiful.
