“The hotel’s top-floor exterior features a sleek, modern glass facade, while the entrance embodies the look and feel of an English manor,” continued the press release, adding that “Behind a stone-walled arcade entry lays a private, open-air courtyard studded with lush foliage and seating for guests to lounge”.

Underscoring Renaissance Hotels’ unexpected design aesthetic, Stonehill Taylor created an escape that plays on the contrasting dichotomy of the hotel’s industrial, antique and floral market surroundings to create the illusion of walking through a secret garden.

The hotel boasts 7,326-square-feet of flexible event space, including Somewhere Nowhere. The 2,170-square-foot Cardinal Ballroom, drenched in natural light, features floor-to-ceiling windows that open out to Juliet balconies with city views. The ballroom, with a maximum capacity of 200 people, is ideal for weddings and galas, but can also be split into two separate rooms for smaller conferences.
