    I am from Pune and will be going to Mumbai to organize some meetings for business delegates.

    I need to choose quite a grand hotel which also provides a meetings area, and a hotel that came to mind was Renaissance Mumbai Convention Centre Hotel.
    The hotel offers a meeting area, excellent rooms and is also in a good location.

    I would like to know more about the meeting area, the space provided and also about the refreshments that are organized for the meeting if any.

    I basically need as much information as possible in regards to business terms.

    Hello, welcome to the forum!


    What is the Renaissance Mumbai Convention Centre Hotel?

    The Renaissance Mumbai Convention Centre Hotel is a five-star property located at the northern part of Mumbai. Its location is prime, nestled between two lakes and away from the busy centre of the city. The hotel is well loved by business travellers, mainly because they have all the facilities that these specific type of travellers need. But even families can enjoy the luxurious atmosphere of the property. Renaissance Hotels themselves are managed by the world-class hotel brand, Marriott. As such, you're treated to not only the very best of modern facilities, but also the very best of hospitality services. It might be an opulent choice but if you have the means for it, staying in the Renaissance Mumbai Convention Centre Hotel won't be regretful at all.

    Where is the Renaissance Mumbai Convention Centre Hotel Located in Mumbai?

    The Renaissance Mumbai Convention Centre Hotel is located in Powai, nestled on the western bank of the Powai Lake. To its northern side is the Vihar Lake, which is a part of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park. The Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport is around eight kilometres away from the property. If you're coming from the city centre, just take the Andheri Kurla Road, then the Saki Vihar Road, until you reach the Sulabh Suchalaya and thereafter, take the first right turn to reach the hotel proper. The nearest railhead is the Marol Naka Metro Station, which is around 6.3 kilometres away from the hotel. If going by bus, the nearest bus stop is the Nitle Bus Stop, merely 1.2 kilometres away from the hotel. There are direct buses from Kurla (Bus No. 25) and Vijay Nagar (Bus No. 186) to this bus stop.

    What is the Overall Vibe of the Renaissance Mumbai Convention Centre Hotel?

    With its pure white facade just adjacent to the blue lake, the Renaissance Mumbai Convention Centre Hotel is easy to distinguish. The exteriors are fairly simple with lots of greenery surrounding the New Tower and Old Tower of the hotel. The reception, in contrast, is more regal and sophisticated, especially with the neutral hues accentuated by the golden pillars and this almost bronze wall just behind the reception. This wall truly stands out having various carvings of ancient men and their day to day lives. The rooms are sleek in design, with some overlooking the picturesque lake through a large window. Contemporary features dominate the rooms and of course, minimalistic designs are apparent. The overall vibe of the hotel is formal yet endearing, the former because of its business-like appeal and the latter because of its serene location nearby the lake.

    What are the Room Options in the Renaissance Mumbai Convention Centre Hotel?


    Spread across 15 acres of verdant lawns, the property has over 600 rooms and suites that one can choose from. As mentioned above, they are located in either the New Tower or the Old Tower of the hotel. The central motif of all rooms and suites is contemporary, with very elegant yet functional designs. Flooring is either carpeted or hardwood, both of which are well maintained by the staff. Windows are large with draping curtains that showcase either the lake or the hill view. Tastefully selected furnitures are also found all throughout rooms and suites, not missing of course is a word desk with an ergonomic chair for the health of guests. Suites have their own living room and dining room area as well.

    As far as the services and facilities provided during the meeting are concerned, the management and staff can help you with that.

    They also offer a special type of meeting concept, the Green Meetings.

To help with the local agriculture and minimise import fees, only seasonal food items would be served to the group. In addition, organic ingredients would also be utilised in the meals.

This is a truly unique but important concept that you can opt to avail of when you do one of your meetings in the hotel.
