Marriott International’s Renaissance brand will soon be able to tout a swanky, glass-wrapped hotel as its flagship in New York City, according to my story in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal.

Please click on the above link to read my Journal scoop for all the details, but briefly: The 38-story Renaissance is under construction near Pennsylvania Station and Madison Square Garden. Rooms will be designed by Jeffrey Beers, the well-known hospitality designer who recently left his mark on the newly renovated New York Palace hotel as well as other luxury hotels, clubs and restaurants.
