Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter completes multimillion-dollar renovation
Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter, a riverfront hotel in Covington, KY, with views of the Ohio River and the city’s downtown skyline, has completed a multimillion-dollar renovation.
In addition to the completed renovations of the property’s 321 guestrooms, meeting spaces and public spaces, the new M Club and Marriot Greatroom are now available to both leisure and business travelers.
Each of the guestrooms has all new case and softgoods, enhanced resilient wood-look flooring, a walk-in shower, an in-room safe, complimentary WiFi, a well-lit desk, a coffee maker, mini-refrigerator and a smart TV.
Connected to the Northern Kentucky Convention Center, which has 100,000 sq. ft. of event and meeting space, the hotel has nearly 13,000 sq. ft. of total event and meeting space. All of the property’s event rooms have been renovated, including the Riverview ballroom, which doubled in size to 4,200 sq. ft., and includes floor-to-ceiling windows and a waterfront private balcony, and the Kentucky room, which expanded to 1,155 sq. ft. and has floor-to-ceiling windows. The events and meeting space has 10 breakout rooms in total.
Also new to the property is the 1,700-sq.-ft. M Club, a 24/7 lounge for Marriott Bonvoy members of all levels; and a reinvented Marriott Greatroom, which offers guests modern and comfortable spaces, food & beverage, technology, guest services and ambiance.
Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter also has an on-site fitness center, a Marriott Health & Fitness Club, a full-service business center, complimentary high-speed internet, an indoor lap pool and other amenities.
AWH Development, a full-service real estate development company, renovated the property. Spire Hospitality manages it. Both companies are owned by AWH Partners LLC, a privately held real estate investment firm that purchased the Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter with Opterra Capital in 2018.
La Colombe d’Or Hotel finishes expansion and renovation
La Colombe d’Or Hotel in Houston has completed an addition and renovation and set the hotel’s opening date for March 29.
Located in the Montrose neighborhood, international design team Rottet Studio reimagined the hotel interiors for a modern yet timeless and gracious Texas experience, according to the owners, the Zimmermans.
Originally built in 1923 as a residence for Houston’s Fondren family, the La Colombe d’Or Mansion was acquired in 1979 and transformed into a hotel featuring suites, a restaurant and bar, an art gallery and Le Grand Salon de la Comtesse—a Rococo ballroom outfitted in English oak, gilded-frame mirrors and chandeliers once built for French royals in the 1730s and purchased by the Zimmermans in 1995. In a collaboration with global real estate firm Hines, the property was reimagined, and a high-rise named The Residences at La Colombe d’Or now stands adjacent to the Mansion.
Renaissance Dallas Addison Hotel Renovates
Renaissance Dallas Addison Hotel has completed a top-to-bottom renovation that includes a total transformation of guestrooms, fitness center and public spaces, as well as a redesign and upgrade of its more than 100,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event spaces.
The hotel’s comprehensive renovations touched nearly every space within the property and, in keeping with the Renaissance brand’s ethos, were designed to reflect the spirit of the neighborhood, where visitors can enjoy culture, work and play. The area’s growing community of theater, fine art, music and food invites travelers to immerse themselves in the vibrancy of the area, and the renovations reflect these ideals through neutral color palettes that juxtapose natural wood and leather materials with contemporary designs and thoughtfully curated artistic focal points, according to the company.
All 528 guestrooms, including 24 bi-level suites, ranging in size from 750 sq. ft.-2,400 sq. ft., have been renovated to reflect the new design philosophy using wood, earthy tones and natural materials, coupled with a modern and upscale twist reflecting the Renaissance brand’s comfortable, modern aesthetic.
The complete redesign of the hotel’s guestrooms included the appointment of entirely new furniture and furnishings, as well as upgrades to the HVAC system and plumbing. Updates to the guestrooms include touches and elements reflective of the Dallas culture, such as the placement in each room of both a photograph of the “Blueprints” sculpture situated just behind the hotel in the Addison Circle Park and a portrait of Dallas-born musician Stevie Ray Vaughan.
