Wake Up to World Famous Italian illy Café in the New Lobby Lounge at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel with Special Communal Tables Wired for Power and WiFi Ready

The Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa invites guests to taste the perfect cup of espresso from Italy at the new Café Fama (the Italian word for fame) located in the lobby. Starting at 6:30 am, guests will be drawn to the distinct illy fragrance with notes of chocolate, toast, honey and caramel which creates its full-bodied flavor, velvety and sweet. One sip will bring a pleasant bitter tingle to the taste buds slowly fading after several minutes while the aroma lingers on. Café Fama also serves muffins, scones and breakfast pastries until 11:00 am. Sandwiches and other grab-and-go delectables are available at lunchtime through 4:00 pm. The space becomes a lounge after that, serving light appetizers and alcoholic beverages through 1:00 am.

"We chose illy café because it is the perfect espresso coffee," says Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa General Manager Bruce Gorelick. "A cup of illy espresso is a brief but intense experience that caresses the senses, awakens the spirit and opens the mind. From the very first sip, illy's rich, fragrant aroma and distinctive, consistent taste provide an authentic Italian coffee experience to be savored over and over again. And for those who enjoy the pleasures of creamy, frothy cappuccino, the best starts with a perfect shot of espresso."

While the whole Hollywood luxury hotel property is WiFi ready, new communal tables that are wired for power welcome guests to linger a while and enjoy the setting. You never know what celebrity might be checking in that day or coming for an afternoon press junket. The property is frequently utilized as a location for movies and television shows and the lobby puts guests front and center to the action.

Later in the day, the area is transformed into a lobby bar with a lounge type atmosphere still serving illy coffee but adding a full Hollywood restaurant and bar menu including the famous Renaissance Cocktail Culture, where a celebrity puts together a martini of their own design and the hotel features it as the Cocktail of the Day.
