    Marriott International, Inc has announced plans to open its tenth hotel in Turkey, the 110-room Renaissance Izmir Hotel, set to open in late 2012. Renaissance Hotels is the signature lifestyle brand within the Marriott International global portfolio. Recognized for its signature guest programmes including R Navigator and RLife LIVE, Renaissance Hotels currently has over 35 hotels throughout Europe.With a population of over three million, Izmir is the third largest city in Turkey after Istanbul and Ankara. Heralded as the “Pearl of the Aegean”, Izmir is located on Turkey’s west coast on the stunning Aegean sea. Izmir’s natural port is popular with not only tourists but also one of largest export-import hubs in Turkey.

    Izmir’s fascinating 8,500-year history has earned the city international recognition as a site of historical and cultural importance. Izmir is home to the Temple of Artemis, one of the famed Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, as well as a myriad of Roman ruins, ancient churches, and lively bazaars located within the city and neighbouring towns.

    The Renaissance Izmir Hotel will be located in the heart of downtown Izmir, just moments from the “Kordon”, the city’s famous sea front promenade lined with cafés and shops.

    Housing the brand’s signature “R” Lounge, the hotel will bring the distinct look and feel of the Renaissance Hotels brand to the city while incorporating indigenous inspiration in every detail. The 110 sophisticated guestrooms will boast luxury bedding and the latest technologies, and an all-day dining restaurant boasting Mediterranean delights will be located on the rooftop offering sweeping views of Izmir Bay. Leisure facilities include a fitness centre, spa, and plunge pool while meeting and business needs are catered for with 2,130 square feet of meeting space set across three meeting rooms and a dedicated business centre.
