A story behind every stay
Generations have passed through our doors. The famous—and, quite honestly, the infamous—have slept in our suites. And now it’s your turn to contribute to history. Step back in time when you visit a Renaissance historic hotel. Century-old buildings have been recorded in the National Register of Historic Places. We explore the past to map future directions. Bricks, mortar and woodwork have been restored to their original beauty. Landmark rooms have been refurbished to modern comfort standards.
The guestbook of every Renaissance historic hotel captures the essence of bygone eras. We have played host to a long line of U.S. presidents at Washington, D.C.’s Mayflower, movie stars at Miami’s Eden Roc and, well, mobsters. Legend has it that Chicago’s Blackstone Hotel was the hub for gangster activity during the reign of Al Capone.
Steeped in charm and character, 20 Renaissance historic hotels are sprinkled throughout the most interesting cities around the world. Each has a story to tell. Now, if only the walls could talk.
