Marriott has reopened the Renaissance Cincinnati Downtown hotel in the city’s historic Bartlett Building, after a $50m renovation project.

Built in 1901 and designed by famed Chicago architect Daniel Burnham, the 18-storey Bartlett Building was Cincinnati’s tallest for 12 years and the tallest building in Ohio for three years.

Renaissance Cincinnati now features 323 hotel rooms, including 40 executive hotel suites, complemented by luxury amenities; and a restaurant, named for Daniel Burnham.

It also features more than 14,000ft² of meeting space, a ballroom, and a workout room. The ballroom retains the original dome shaped tile ceiling.

Renaissance Cincinnati Downtown general manager Keoni Christensen said: "Renaissance Hotels is known for embracing the spirit of each destination through design, service and unique amenities, making our new hotel a great destination for travellers visiting Cincinnati.

"We want to create an experience that invites our guests to discover the very best of Cincinnati, from its vibrant arts scene to the very best in local entertainment and culinary adventures."

Renaissance Hotels has 157 hotels in 35 countries around the world.
