Renaissance Bordeaux opens its doors

American hospitality chain Marriott International has opened its newest property in the French city of Bordeaux, the Renaissance Bordeaux.

Renaissance Bordeaux is located in the city’s Wet Docks Quarter. Bordeaux-Merignac Airport is located at a approximate distance of 11.4 miles (18 kilometres) from the hotel. The hotel is steps away from the river front and top city’s attractions such as the “Cité du Vin” and the “Bassins des Lumières”.

Renaissance Bordeaux consists of 149 guest rooms including a suite room. The nine-storey hotel features a garden, a fitness centre, and a panoramic roof with a restaurant, bar and a indoor swimming pool overlooking the Cité du Vin museum. The ground floor houses the Gina Caffe Shop, with a dedicated entrance on Place du Millésime, and baristas here work in collaboration with the L’Alchimiste roastery, which has its own workshop on Bordeaux’s right bank.

The 9th floor is home to the rooftop Gina restaurant and bar with an Italian-inspired menu, which includes a mozzarella bar, antipasti platters, pizza and a cart of homemade ice-creams, and panoramic views of the city. The property features one of the highest rooftops in Bordeaux.

The hotel’s interiors have been designed by Maison Malapert and aim to combine the old and the new, with an entrance that consists of two of the eight silos that were once oil factories in the 19th century.

This is the 2nd Marriott hotel to open in Bordeaux in less than a month. Just a few days ago, Marriott celebrated the opening of Moxy Bordeaux, which is located just down the road from the new Renaissance.
