LOS ANGELES | Renaissance Hollywood Hotel

This is a rendering of a Holiday Inn in Hollywood, California in the 1960s. I can't find the building in any building databases, but the building in the background appears to be the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. If it is then this would put the Holiday Inn right where the current Renaissance Hollywood Hotel is. The Renaissance was built in 2001 but it appears as though the rear wing is older than the newer front portion. Perhaps the rear wing is this old Holiday Inn from the 1960s? Can anyone give further insight? Thanks!

Looks to be the case.

One of the most popular hotels in Hollywood is being acquired by Loews Hotels & Resorts, which plans a $26-million renovation of the inn at Hollywood & Highland Center.

The Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa will be rebranded as the Loews Hollywood Hotel after the sale closes later this month. Terms of the sale by landlord CIM Group were not disclosed, but hospitality industry experts familiar with the property valued the deal at about $165 million.

Renovations will take place in phases over the next year to minimize disruptions for guests, Loews said. A company representative declined to elaborate on the nature of the renovations but said they would affect all 632 rooms and public spaces in the 20-story hotel.

The property dates to 1972, when it opened as a Holiday Inn. Developer TrizecHahn Corp. spent about $130 million on renovations and an expansion that was completed in 2001 with the opening of Hollywood & Highland Center. CIM Group bought the hotel and retail complex in 2004.
