It was in an excellent location in downtown - Union Square/Theatre District. It's about 12 miles southwest of the San Francisco Airport. Cabs were always abundant at the hotel and the trolley and shopping areas were about a block away. Fresh fruit at the Registration Desk each day was a nice touch. The lobby is expansive. There is a Burger King across the street.
For one person, the room was comfortable, space-wise. It was quiet - I couldn't hear anything from the surrounding rooms. I was in a no-smoking room, but I was able to smell cigarette smoke in the bathroom. I've found that usually this is because the ventilation for all the bathrooms is connected. It wasn't too bothersome, but it was noticeable.
The bathroom was on the small side, but was fine for one person.
There is a restaurant and a lounge in the hotel.
This hotel has a video checkout feature that was very convenient - no waiting in line.
This is a very nice hotel, and I would definitely stay here again.

The bathroom was superspacious, dryer, magnifying mirror, telephone, bath & body works toiletries, super plush towels.
King size bed, dresser in hallway, mirrored closet in hallway, desk with armchair facing floor to waist window. Room for aerobics, dance, summersaults.
Luxurious is an understatement for the Renaissance Parc 55 Hotel. As you walk to the elevators, the marble walls are whispering money, money, money in your ears. You''d hear it even if you were deaf. I''m here as an unashamed, non-working guest. I''m loafing and I love it.
Indoor pool, sauna, massage. All sorts of business services if you need them, although the reception area is not too bright about incoming faxes. My office did send me the same fax three times, and they delivered all 15 pages.
Room service is a marvelous thing when you don''t feel like moving a muscle. And at the Renaissance, they are exceptional about it. I had flowers on my tray every morning, and whenever I called for service. The food was impeccably served, and tasted divine.
If you are on an expense account, this is the place for you. It''s a few steps away from Market Street, and likewise with Powell. If you''re ambitious, you can walk to the Moscone Center, but they do have shuttles buses at the hotel that will take you there.
