“At Renaissance Boca Raton, our goal is to maintain the fresh, chic hotel concept through the re-design while incorporating a modern, convenient experience for our dynamic traveler,” said Mehmet Bahtiyar, general manager of Renaissance Boca Raton. “The seamless design allows our guests to feel current and connected.”

The hotel’s 189 guest rooms have been renovated to feature “a streamlined layout with contemporary-style furnishings and granite bathrooms with Aveda bath amenities, fostering comfort for both business and leisure guests,” according to a press release announcing the project’s completion.

The decor and furniture have been upgraded in the hotel’s meeting and conferences spaces, while restaurant Umbria Ristorante features an updated menu.

Tourism leaders praised the hotel’s new look.

“We’re thrilled about the significant investment in the renovations of the Renaissance Boca Raton,” said Jorge Pesquera, president and CEO for Discover The Palm Beaches, the official tourism marketing corporation for Palm Beach County. “This property, billed as ‘fearlessly chic,’ is giving visitors a fresh, new and contemporary product as well as high-qualify service. It’s another step in our collective mission to live the brand that The Palm Beaches are the best way to experience Florida, because genuine hospitality is a way of life for us.”

When addressing the dozens of attendees at the ribbon cutting, Pesquera cited a hotel boom. “We are going through the biggest jump in hotels and hotel rooms since Henry Flagler built his two grand hotels in Palm Beach,” he said. “It’s important that our product feel refreshed and aligned with the tastes and likes of the new generation of travelers, and that’s what we believe this ‘fearlessly chic’ concept will accomplish.”

The renovation was designed to appeal to the “modern-day traveler,” the announcement said.

The hotel is located at 2000 NW 19th Street. It is managed by TPG Hospitality.
