$5.6 Million Room Redesign at Long Beach

The Renaissance Long Beach
is pleased to announce the ongoing $5.6 million renovation of all
374 Hotel guestrooms. Updated with new amenities, rich fabrics, new window
coverings and a sleek, cool color palette, the Renaissance Hotel will
further deliver to its guests what it knows best: a luxurious, convenient
and comforting “home away from home” experience. Combined with its
intimate meeting spaces, professional service staff and ideal location in
the very heart of Long Beach’s convention and tourist center, the reborn
Renaissance Hotel is poised to redefine what business travelers expect
from a visit to this urban waterfront destination: an invitation to
personal attention and a memorable experience that’s definitely not
“business as usual.” Guests can enjoy a glimpse of the very near future right in the Hotel
lobby, where an example of the updated and more intimate guestroom
experience has been constructed and put on display. Seeking to bring to
the Hotel a more relaxed, residential feeling that embodies its Southern
California destination, a great many colorful improvements and innovations
have been added to each guestroom. Textured blonde wall coverings as well
as artwork and fabrics in luminous shades of blue, green and gold
exquisitely capture the soft California light. Plush Renaissance beds
feature 300-thread-count sheets and extra pillows to provide the ultimate
sleep experience.

“We wanted a contemporary bayfront look for the rooms that says ‘casual
elegance’,” explained interior designer Karen Rodgers of design firm
Looney & Associates. “We let more light in with sheer window coverings and
created new window seats that invite guests to take in the views. At the
same time, business amenities in every room have been improved.”

“Our perfect size and close attention to detail make staying with us,
whether for business or pleasure, feel like home,” said Joachim Ortmayer,
Renaissance Long Beach Hotel’s General Manager. “Making guests feel
entirely at ease is engrained in our culture and has driven our
‘residential rooms’ redesign.”
