We booked our 12-12-12 wedding at The Renaissance Grand for both the ceremony and reception. I come from a hospitality background and have worked at the Ritz-Carlton for over 6 years, so I was initially a bit worried that anything less than Ritz was going to be disappointing for me. The Renaissance Grand exceeded every expectation I had! From beginning to end, everyone that I encountered during the planning process and the night of made sure that every request we had was met with a smile and a 'yes, of course!' If it was something they could not accomdate, they made sure to give alternatives that did work for them and us. We had guests at our wedding from 3 different continents and over 6 countries - everyone was blown away! We picked the Crystal Ballroom on the 21st floor for the ceremony and reception. The 22foot high ceiling and windows combined old-world elegance with a spectacular view. We went all out with the flowers and centerpieces but the room does not need necessarily need it. We just did it for the WOW factor - altough the room is truly 'grand' even without any extras. The food was superb - we opted for a dual entree of salmon & sirloin and we received many compliments. The staff was attentive and efficient throughout the night and the entire evening truly was a fairytale come true.

We recently had our reception at the Renaissance Grand (2/11). It was absolutely perfect. We had so many comments from our guests as to what a beautiful, elegant room it was. Many people told us it was the "nicest" wedding they had ever been to. The food was excellent as was the staff. They did so much for us, we basically had our own wedding planner through the Renaissance. Can't imagine having our reception elsewhere. Highly highly recommend this place.

We had our reception at the Renaissance Grand in St. Louis, MO and it was amazing! Everyone there is very accommodating and our Coordinator, Aylssa Como, was amazing! Alyssa was on top of every detail, ensured everything was perfect, and was a complete pleasure to work with. The food there is amazing, their halls gorgeous, and the staff exceptional. I would definitely recommend the Renaissance.

My wedding was perfect from start to finish! My ceremony was in the Statler Ballroom and Reception in the Crystal Ballroom. We originally booked our date with Liz and she showed us the rooms. She was so sweet and accommodating! My event coordinator was Kristin, she was amazing! She made my day perfect! Making sure everything thing was on time and in place. She was more than accommodating and was so helpful through out the entire process. The servers were so friendly, the food was delicious, and the extra touches the hotel throws in to make you feel special made my wedding flawless and stress free!

I had my wedding at the Renaissance Hotel for both my ceremony and Reception. I cannot get over how BEAUTIFUL it was! I had my reception in the Statler Ballroom and it was the perfect setting. I continue to receive compliments on the food provided by the catering staff - the appetizers, meal, wedding cake and even the macaroon favors. My coordinator Kristin was great. I cannot be more thankful that I chose the Renaissance for my wedding!

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!

The Crystal Ballroom is absolutely beautiful. My family has used this space for multiple weddings. The only thing that went wrong during my wedding was the kitchen running out of chicken. This was very upsetting, but the situation was handeled. Other than that, we are very happy with the events that we have had there.

Old world charm. Marble floors and walls, two stories high and open. Stone pillars with ambiant lighting. Very detailed ceiling and other fine details.;It can only hold less than 180 people comfortably if you want a dance floor.

The Crystal Ballroom at The Renaissance Grand was breathtaking..the staff was excellant especially the wedding coordinator who paid complete attention to all details..food was very good;Room holds up to 250 but is more comfortable if you stay between 200 and 225
