LBA Hospitality today announced the opening of the uniquely designed 89-room Renaissance St. Augustine Historic Downtown Hotel. The stunning property at 6 West Castillo Drive in downtown St. Augustine is owned by Vista Hospitality and managed by Alabama-based hotel management company LBA Hospitality.
Positioned on the Atlantic coast of northeastern Florida, St. Augustine is the oldest continually inhabited city in the United States. As the newest hotel in the oldest city, the Renaissance St. Augustine was thoughtfully designed to blend seamlessly with the architecture of the neighborhood landmarks and buildings. The hotel is located in the heart of the historic Ancient City District and is easily accessible to Jacksonville International Airport, Daytona Beach International Airport, Old Town Trolley Tours, St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park, San Sebastian Winery, Castillo de San Marcos, St. Augustine Amphitheatre, and numerous shopping, dining, and entertainment options.
The three-story hotel features 89 guestrooms and suites that are classically styled with a touch of whimsy featuring magnificent balconies and verandas with impressive uptown city views. In each room, guests will enjoy premium bedding, shoreline-inspired furnishings, and many more modern amenities, including the ability to stream Netflix, HBO Max, and YouTube on in-room HDTVs.
Alongside the hotel, guests and locals alike will enjoy the Castillo Craft Bar + Kitchen, a full-service restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, and room service. Showcasing a menu of refined comfort cuisine and craft beverages, the menu crafts dishes utilizing sustainable local farms to create a positive impact on its environmental footprint. The beverage selection includes refreshing wines that are seasonably based, small-batch bourbons, unique whiskeys, organic craft beverages, and garden-to-glass cocktails with a modern twist on southern classics.
The hotel features 4,462-square-feet of versatile event space with abundant natural light, verandas, and uptown city views.
