RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Siena Hotel Casino in downtown Reno is getting a new name as part of its renovation. Miles Construction is turning it into a non-gaming hotel called the Renaissance, now owned by Marriott.
Miles Construction is remodeling all 214 hotel rooms, 15,500 square feet of convention space, lobby and public spaces. The renovation also includes the conversion of what was 17,000 square feet of casino space, to be replaced by a restaurant and event center with seven indoor bocce courts and a 9,000-square-foot outdoor garden with two additional bocce courts, a dining area and private event area.
“We love being part of these exciting renovation projects as they reshape downtown Reno and the perception of our community,” says Cary Richardson, vice president of business development for Miles Construction. “Our team is part of this community and we appreciate the opportunity to be part of creating vibrant properties that continue to move our region forward.”
Expected completion for the Marriott Renaissance renovation is late 2016. The hotel has remained open since the casino was closed in 2015 when Grand Siena LLC sold the property.
