My wife and I stayed at the Renaissance in mid-October 2009 for five nights. The room was new and super-clean. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is great because it is w/i walking distance of all the major sites. We always felt safe and secure at the hotel and with the area in general. We had one lunch in the restaurant and it was OK. There are many restaurants in the area that we did not feel like eating hotel food. The property and rooms are small compared to US hotels of this rating but that is the same for almost all of the "5 star" hotels we saw walking about in St Petersburg. It's a little expensive but I feel its worth it for the peace of mind.
