Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa: Common Areas

Lobby, above & below (2009)

The experience of entering a hotel lobby sets up an expectation about your room and stay. The Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa is both stylish and sophisticated with quirky accents and colors that grabs your attention. The mezzanine level leads to a convenient hotel entrance/exit to the second level of the Hollywood & Highland Center, the hotel restaurant called Twist and ballrooms.

Back in 2004, the mezzanine had comfortable seating along its spacious and airy hallway with floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking Highland Avenue on one side and the ballrooms on the other. For some reason in 2010 most of the seating is gone.

The lobby level contains comfortable seating to lounge with family or friends and also contains the gift shop and concierge desk. The lobby bar on this level also serves as another option as a gathering place. The curving stairway to the mezzanine level adds drama to the surroundings.

Those enjoying the Spa Luce can also enjoy the adjacent pool on this level. As usual with most hotel spas, be prepared to pay up for some of the spa treatments.

The photos of the lobby is from my stay in 2009 and during the holidays of 2010.
