BIRMINGHAM, AL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/02/14 -- For anyone who dreads spring cleaning, the Renaissance Birmingham Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa will serve as an inspiration. Where most people have to comb through their closets and change a few throw pillows, this turreted palace within the rolling hills of Alabama's Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail has just completed a $5-million overhaul. From guest rooms to meeting rooms, the project has left this castle looking more regal -- and more inviting -- than ever.
Ever since opening in 2005, this Four Diamond hotel in Birmingham, AL has been consistently ranked as the city's best. But despite its relative youth and reputation, the resort benefitted from the largely aesthetic changes that occurred between October 2013 and March 2014. Now each space engages more fully with the resort's Scottish provenance while still feeling fresh, modern and welcoming.
Renovations include the following:
- Every guest room received new carpet, paint, wall coverings, draperies, sconces, bedding and some new furniture.
- VIP suites took the guest-room renovation to new levels with all of the above plus all new furniture and wall fixtures.
- The 11,500 square feet of ballroom space now wear new, tartan-inspired carpeting. New chairs and furnishings complement the refreshed rugs.
- Three of the four restaurants - JT's, Brock's and The Clubhouse Restaurant -- now boast fresh carpet, paint and furnishings. JT's enjoyed special attention with structural changes that siphoned off the restaurant from the lobby and expanded its outdoor space. A new dance floor, woodwork and 11 large, flat-screen televisions now adorn the tavern.
- Even the hallways got in on the action with new carpet, paint and wall coverings.
Other changes had more to do with the palate than the palette. Each of the refreshed restaurants now offers updated menus that are on par with the resort's position as the best among Birmingham luxury hotels. JT's, for example, has overhauled its menu of Scottish comfort food to include choices like Irish nachos and try-before-you-die dumplings. These selections are complemented by a carefully culled cigar selection and an impressive range of libations that include locally crafted beers, single malt scotch and the signature Martini 1863 whose Scottish roots go back even further than the resort's.
Whether guests are exploring conference venues or Birmingham hotel packages, the restyled Ross Bridge has ensured that it remains the king of the hospitality scene.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
