BUNNYFiSH Studio transforms Siena Hotel Reno

Renovations to include new restaurant, meeting spaces, remodeled rooms, and Bocce venue.

The Siena Hotel Reno (Nev.) is undergoing a major transformation. Work is already underway on the overhaul that will convert the property into the new Renaissance Reno Downtown Hotel, expected to début by early 2017.

Upgrades will be made to all guestrooms, as well as all meeting rooms, restaurant, bar, common areas, fitness center and an all-new bocce venue.

Working from an end-to-end redesign by BUNNYFiSH Studio, the Renaissance Reno Downtown hotel’s new interior will pay respect to the property’s history but will incorporate modern touches. Guestrooms and suites will be renovated to incorporate cleaner lines, more neutral hues, and a casual décor, all expected to blend with rougher textures and organic touches that will echo the surrounding landscape.

The finished property will incorporate 214 fully renovated guestrooms, including 28 suites with views of the nearby Sierra Nevada mountains and adjacent Truckee River. More than 32,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and special event space will also be renovated, including a 6,200-square-foot ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows. Meanwhile, there will also be a rooftop pool and hot tub, as well as restaurant with available outdoor deck seating.

The Renaissance Reno Downtown Hotel will also have Bundox Bocce. Located within the property, Bundox Bocce is a social space with two private rooms; an outdoor, semi-private grass area; and a space that can accommodate up to 1,500 people for guests to discover the sport of bocce with seven indoor courts measuring 10-by-80 feet and two outdoor courts measuring 10-by-90 feet. Three banks of four 55-inch TVs and two projection walls will show sporting events and shows that can also be customized for private events and meetings.

Bundox Bocce will also offer indoor and outdoor bars and seating areas, as well as a namesake restaurant.
