RUTHERFORD, NJ—Concord Hospitality has completed a $7-million renovation of the 167-room Renaissance Meadowlands here.
The hotel is owned in a joint venture between Rockbridge, a private equity firm that invests in hotels, and Concord. The five-month project involved a complete rejuvenation of all guest rooms, guest bathrooms and public spaces. This included a rebranding of the hotel’s restaurant, Finch’s, and reconfiguration of the lounge and lobby creating more of a “great room” style space. Guestroom renovations include conversion to frameless glass showers, new casegoods, soft goods, vanities, tile and fixtures. Architectural Services were provided by Thomas Hamilton and Associates of Richmond, VA.
“We are really proud of the relationship with Concord,” stated Jim Merkel, Rockbridge president & CEO. “The team’s collaboration on this project significantly transformed the property to meet the needs of today’s traveler.”
“Today’s guests are using hotel lobbies and lounges as extended work spaces, as well as places to relax and interact with others,” stated Mark Laport, president and CEO of Concord. “The renovation of Finch’s lounge to integrate with the lobby great room creates the kind of contemporary public space that invites relaxing work and social business.”
