Renaissance Hotel Review
After a shift from all-business to a more design-centric approach, the Renaissance is enjoying a renaissance of its own. The lobby sort of feels like it's been designed for urban court jesters, with oversize furniture, curved, abstract sculptures, and dangling, filament-like sculpture. Rooms are comfortable, and decorated in soothing earth tones; bathrooms have mosaic tile showers. Though the hotel's R Lounge space is more about the view than the cuisine, they now serve a menu featuring items from the team behind Blue Ribbon restaurants.
