Ahhh...so much better.
Creative Resource Associates, a California-based firm, spearheaded the new look for the guest rooms and suites. "Long Beach is a dynamic city with a fun and kinetic energy. The room design at the Renaissance Long Beach was created to represent the soothing, tranquil sea within the vibrancy of the city. The hotel design offers a peaceful retreat which mutes the noise of a busy day and the magical, soulful qualities of the sea," said Hydee D. Hirsch, Principal of CRA.
While the entire room is a true sight for sore eyes, we actually love the printed detail on the edge of the duvet cover. It's a break from all-white monotony that's gotten to be, er, that you find in hotels these days but it still gives us the feeling that we're about to jump into a nice, clean bed.
Rates at the Renaissance typically start at $189 a night. However, because the hotel is within walking distance to the Toyota Grand Prix Race, happening this weekend, rates bump up to $399 a night.
