Austin, TX (PRWEB) January 18, 2008
The Renaissance Austin Hotel will soon become the largest in-house meeting facility in Austin when it completes construction adding another 7,000 square feet of meeting space to its existing 60,000. The new 7,000 square foot meeting space will open in the summer of 2008 and increases the Austin hotel's total meeting space square footage to 67,000. This amount of space makes the hotel the largest for indoor meeting space in the Austin market, further improving its position as the ideal venue for meetings, conventions and special events.
Additionally, the elegant new space will be the perfect setting for large Austin weddings, upscale events and sophisticated catered social and corporate affairs. The space will be the newest and most unique space in Austin with an exceptional view of the Texas Hill Country, separate and full catering kitchen, and eye-catching design concepts.
"The opportunities for this premier new meeting space are endless for the elegant types of events and catered functions we will be able to create for local events and for the high-end meeting planner. I feel the new space will be a great addition to the outstanding existing amenities that the Renaissance already offers its guests." said Rob Gillette, General Manager of the Renaissance Austin Hotel.
The special attention and detail made to the décor and lighting will enhance the beauty of the room and make it a unique place for any event. The décor is upscale contemporary with soft lighting, which will create a memorable experience. Enhanced by the lush greenery and wildflowers, the space will feature vaulted copper-tin ceilings, arched doors, large-scale windows, acoustical wood, and an overall neutral palette so that the room is versatile for any type of theme or function. The space is also engineered with the latest high-tech audio-visual, sound, and lighting amenities, making it an ideal business hotel in Austin.
Guests can also experience a heightened level of luxury surroundings when they visit the hotel since it recently completed multi-million dollar renovations in 2007. The hotel has a "high-tech, high-touch" feel for guests at this truly authentic and upscale 10-story atrium hotel. The new Internet café, @ustinbytes, offers a variety of foods and beverages during the day including: Starbucks® coffee, gourmet coffees, specialty wines and beer, fresh-baked pastries, fresh pizzas and sandwiches, select cheeses, snacks, and gourmet desserts. The cyber café projects an "eat.drink.connect." methodology.
