Marriott International, Inc announced plans to open its tenth hotel in Turkey, the 110-room Renaissance Izmir Hotel, set to open in late 2012.
“We are delighted to announce this exciting new addition to our growing portfolio in Turkey,” said Amy McPherson, president and managing director for Marriott International in Europe, in an announcement. “Renaissance Hotels are known for creating authentic experiences that offer guests a sense of discovery whether they are travelling for business or leisure, so we feel that Izmir, with its rich cultural and historical heritage, is a perfect fit with the brand and its philosophy.”
The hotel will include 110 guestrooms, an all-day dining restaurant, and the brand’s signature “R” Lounge. Leisure facilities include a fitness center, 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 center.
