The Renaissance is Marriott’s foray into the beach-side mega-hotel strip that dominates central Tel Aviv’s western edge. Lying by the marina, the property overlooks popular Gordon beach, where the noise of countless sun-bathers is interrupted by the weekly public dancing sessions and volleyball tournaments below. While the 342-room hotel remains a bit outdated in terms of décor, both public and private spaces are tastefully maintained, and afford breathtaking views of the Mediterranean. Each room has a personal balcony overlooking the sea, either on the marina or Jaffa side. Spa and fitness facilities are provided on premises to all guests, while wellness services are offered upon appointment.
