Renaissance Cincinnati Downtown Hotel Debuts in Historic Bartlett Building

Renaissance Introduces Guests to a Brand New Luxury Hotel Experience in the Heart of Downtown Cincinnati

CINCINNATI, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 08/26/14 -- Renaissance Hotels is thrilled to welcome its newest gem to its portfolio with the opening of the new Renaissance Cincinnati Downtown Hotel, located in the city's historic Bartlett Building. Renaissance Hotels is a lifestyle brand within Marriott International's global portfolio of 18 brands. With its proud motto of "Live Life to Discover®," Renaissance Hotels offers today's lifestyle business traveler a unique guest experience woven through design, service and unique programming.

Built in 1901 and designed by famed Chicago architect Daniel Burnham, the 18-story Bartlett Building was Cincinnati's tallest for 12 years and the tallest building in Ohio for three years. Also known as the Union Trust Building, the structure is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. It had been vacant since 2010 before its restoration to the new Cincinnati luxury hotel.

"Renaissance Hotels is known for embracing the spirit of each destination through design, service and unique amenities, making our new hotel a great destination for travelers visiting Cincinnati," said Keoni Christensen, general manager of the hotel. "We want to create an experience that invites our guests to discover the very best of Cincinnati, from its vibrant arts scene to the very best in local entertainment and culinary adventures."

Following a $50 million renovation, the Renaissance now features 323 hotel rooms including 40 executive hotel suites in downtown Cincinnati, complemented by upscale amenities, contemporary styling and stunning views of downtown. The hotel underwent an extensive renovation from its origins as a historic office building to a modern, full service hotel.

D. Burnham's, a destination restaurant named for the building's architect, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner headed by award-winning Chef Harvey Germain, featuring modern American cuisine made with the finest natural, fresh, local ingredients combined and prepared in exciting ways.

The Renaissance Cincinnati Downtown will also host live entertainment and events regularly as part of Renaissance Hotels' events program, which was created to provide hotel guests and local patrons with an up close and personal look into local culinary arts, music, design and more.

The hotel is within walking distance of downtown Cincinnati's major Fortune 500 firms such as Procter & Gamble, Fifth Third Bank, Great American Insurance and Kroger, as well as international data company dunnhumby. It also is conveniently located a block from the heart of the city, Fountain Square, and is near Paul Brown Stadium and Great American Ball Park. It is 15 minutes away from the Greater Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport, ten minutes from the University of Cincinnati and Xavier University and 15 minutes from Northern Kentucky University.

Renaissance Hotels is designed around making business travel fun again and helping its guests to discover unexpected surprises with every stay, whether it's listening to live music in the lobbies, taking in a pop-up art exhibit or simply enjoying handcrafted cocktails and locally inspired foods. It is a sophisticated hotel brand whose mission is to encourage today's modern business traveler to Live Life to Discover®, and make every business trip an opportunity to experience a new story that can be shared. Check out the full line up of Renaissance Hotels events planned throughout the year at all hotels including local art, culinary, film and more by visiting renhotels.com/events or facebook.com/renhotels.
