Providence, RI (PRWEB) May 2, 2008
Hot marks the spot at the Renaissance Hotel in Providence, RI. Just short of a year after its opening, the hotel has been named one of the hottest and sexiest new hotels in the world.
The Renaissance Providence Hotel, an upscale, full-service hotel affiliated with the Marriott portfolio of branded luxury hotels, is listed on Condé Nast Traveler's 2008 "Hot List," the insider's guide to the newest, hottest hotels, restaurants, spas and nightclubs opened across the world in the past year. The hotel joins 136 new hotel properties spanning 53 countries - from Morocco and Costa Rica, to Kenya and France.
Only 20 of the new hotels on the Hot List are in the United States and two of those are in New England, including the Renaissance Providence Hotel. This Providence luxury hotel is also one of only a handful on the list that offer rates under $250, providing opportunities for budget-conscious travelers to enjoy one of the hottest new hotels in the world.
"The Renaissance Providence Hotel is extremely excited to be a part of this international, exclusive list of superior hotels," says Angelo De Peri, general manager of the Renaissance Providence Hotel. "We take pride in the efforts we have made to transform the Masonic Temple into a luxury tier hotel property and are honored to be named among the select hotels from across the globe. This designation validates our commitment to create an inspired guest experience and fuels our vision to be recognized by our customers as the best in the business."
In addition to listing the hottest new hotels and resorts whose superior design, service, and amenities transcend industry standards, the 2008 Hot List also features 105 new restaurants, 28 new nightclubs, and 76 new spas across the world. To create the list, magazine editors anonymously checked out thousands of new properties around the globe, providing candid reviews and evaluating each one on location, service, design and value. The May issue of Condé Nast Traveler is now available on newsstands. For a full review of the Renaissance Providence Hotel, visit http://www.cntraveler.com/hotlist.
