Renaissance Izmir Hotel slated to open in Turkey

Marriott International announced plans to open its tenth hotel in Turkey, the 110-room Renaissance Izmir Hotel, set to open in late 2012.

Renaissance Hotels is the signature lifestyle brand within the Marriott International global portfolio. Recognized for its signature guest program including R Navigator and RLife LIVE, Renaissance Hotels currently has over 35 hotels throughout Europe.

With a population of over three million, Izmir is the third largest city in Turkey after Istanbul and Ankara. Izmir is located on Turkey’s west coast on the Aegean sea. Izmir’s natural port is one of largest export-import hubs in Turkey.

The Renaissance Izmir Hotel will be located in the heart of downtown Izmir, near the “Kordon,” the city’s sea front promenade lined with cafés and shops.

Housing the brand’s signature “R” Lounge, the hotel will bring the distinct look and feel of the Renaissance Hotels brand to the city, while incorporating indigenous inspirations in the details. The 110 guestrooms will boast luxury bedding and the latest technologies, and an all-day dining restaurant boasting Mediterranean offerings will be located on the rooftop offering views of Izmir Bay. Leisure facilities include a fitness center, spa, and plunge pool; while meeting and business needs are catered for with 2,130 square feet of meeting space set across three meeting rooms and a dedicated business center.
