This hotel is fantastic. Beautiful décor, amazing food, super organized. I loved everything about my day. Christine Zimmick is the coordinator and she is friendly, flexible, organized. Dante is the catering manager and he is great as well, super wonderful staff. Everyone raved about the food. If you have out of town guests this venue is amazing. For many of our guests this was their first Pittsburgh visit and it allowed them to walk around and see downtown, market square, strip district, the parks, theaters and sports stadiums. It was everything I hoped it would be.

When I first planning my wedding at Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel Tony was working for them. Well about 4 months before the wedding Tony quit and my now husband and I were worried. Christine was perfect, so helpful, and made my wedding day so perfect. I love the view from our reception room, honeymoon suite, and the area for the bridal party.

It has always been my dream to get ready at the Renaissance the day of my wedding. Since we were having our ceremony at Heinz Hall, that meant this was the perfect place to book a bridal suite and then have the bridal party walk just a block. This was the big splurge for my wedding. I booked the small patio suite on the 14th floor. This was the perfect setting for all of my bridesmaids and moms to get ready and have lovely pictures taken in the process. But here was the REALLY cool thing: they said it was a patio suite. No no. It didn't have a patio, it had a HUGE TERRACE!!! I really thought the patio would be a tiny balcony; the terrace was bigger than each of the rooms of the suite! Amazing views of the city. What memories. This was an amazing experience, and the terrace was an amazing place to take pictures with my photographer. This place is just first class. They bell boys helped me so much (and I had a lot of stuff with me!) and delivered a fridge right up to my room so that I could chill champagne for the next morning. Totally worth it.

I was extremely pleased with The Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel as my choice for my wedding reception.The food was fanstastic...every bit as good as it had been at the tasting. Our senior captain even followed us around during our post-ceremony photos to make sure that we were able to gobble down a few appetizers. I really can't say enough about this crew...they helped make our day very special...and delicious!

We knew we wanted our ceremony and reception to be at a hotel and once we visited the Renaissance we knew it was the perfect location. There isn't a nicer hotel in Pittsburgh. The entire staff is extremely courteous and professional; the hotel itself is beautiful (as are most of the views from the windows) and makes for a memorable event and gorgeous photos. The event coordinator, Tony Lee, completely eliminates the need for an additional wedding planner. The food is much better than standard wedding fare, and they're very flexible in getting whatever you want for food/drink. It was so easy having the ceremony, reception, and morning-after brunch all in the same place - most of our guests were from out of town and everyone loved it. The value for your money is excellent - most of the venues we looked at would have cost roughly the same or more, but no other place would have been as beautifully elegant or had the attentive service from the staff.

Anyone would be crazy to not have your wedding/reception here. Tony is the most amazing coordinator. He goes above and beyond what he needs to to make your day wonderful. He will give you his cell number to get a hold of him no matter what day it is. With just a few visits, most were not even needed, Tony knew all that it would take to make my day the most memorable day. and to top it off, We ended up skipping our other Honeymoon plans and staying at the Renaissance. No other place compares.

We couldn't have picked a better place to have our wedding. Working with Tony and his staff was great. The hotel itself is beautiful, and every part of the staff from the bell boys and the front desk to the catering crew and event planners were spectacular. Our wedding day was everything we could have wanted and more.

The Renaissance Hotel is an unbelievable wedding venue. I held my ceremony and reception at the Renaissance and could not have been happier with Tony Lee and the hotel staff. They were so professional and easy to work with. The food was fabulous and my guests are still raving about my wedding months later! The hotel is beautiful and offers beautiful scenery for the pictures. My guests were able to stay overnight at the hotel, attend the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all in one location plus they were treated to a wonderful Sunday brunch before they departed. They could not have been happier and neither could I. I would recommend the Renaissance Hotel to anyone that is looking to have an elegant and beautiful wedding!

Tony Lee helped make our special day perfect. I did not have to worry about a thing. Tony met with me a day or two prior to the wedding to go over every last detail with me making sure that everything was taken care of. I truly did not have to worry about a thing. From the start of my wedding day until the last guest left, Tony was on the ball. He truly helped me have the wedding of my dreams. Thanks Tony!!!

When my husband and I renewed our vows 2 years ago, I NEVER thought in a MILLION years that we would be able to have our ceremony and celebration @ the Renaissance but ONE man made it possible: Tony Lee! At the time what started as a small affair to be held at a small local lounge turned into a much bigger affair (nearly 100 people). Even after changing venues (AND moving to a larger ballroom just 10 days before our vow renewal) Tony worked with me, my champagne tastes (on a beer budget) and made my every wish come true! Tony himself is the consumate professional but also SOOOOOOOO much fun! He will NOT disappoint and you WILL have fun along the way! I tell my husband WHEN we hit the lottery we'll renew our vows yearly and one of the first calls I would make is to Tony Lee! The Renaissance, and every bride and groom who work with him, are lucky to be doing so! -Chrisinta Neft/Pittsburgh

I booked the Renaissance in May 2012 when Tony Lee was the wedding coordinator. The hotel is gorgeous and I was looking for a downtown location and an all inclusive reception location with a competent on site coordinator since I live out of town. Tony Lee seemed great until I received an email that he was leaving the Renaissance. The transition was not as smooth as it could have been and involved many unanswered emails, but his replacement Christine Zimmick is incredible. I met her a little over a month before my wedding and she was so enthusiastic and full of good ideas! She even moved color coordinated couches and benches from various parts of the hotel to give me the lounge I wanted. From the moment it stepped into the hotel the Friday night before my wedding everyone was so attentive, from the upgrade to a suite for 2 days, to the plates of chocolate and bottles of wine and champagne to the bouquets in the room. And on my wedding day they took care of every detail so that the night went so smoothly. The room looked even better than I imagined, the service was impeccable, the attention to details amazing. We received so many compliments on the room and the amazing reception. The view from the room is also beautiful. I highly highly recommend the renaissance for an amazing wedding reception!

My husband and our families could not have been more pleased with the services provided by the Renaissance Hotel staff. We started planning our event with Greg Sgro, who sold us on the beautiful hotel and their wonderful services, and we made a completely smooth transition to working with Tony Lee, who was fantastic. We, and our guests, were very impressed by the beautiful environment the hotel provided, as well as the amazing food, and their ability to handle so much of the coordination for us. I would very highly recommend!

Who needs a wedding plannner when you can have Tony Lee guide you through the perfect wedding! Tony, the wedding events manager at the Renaissance was fantastic! Planning a long-distance wedding can be tough, but Tony was always available by phone or email and was willing to meet with me whenever I was in town. He encouraged us to be creative with our menu and he made sure that the whole event ran seamlessly.

Can't say enough wonderful things about the experience!
