Shelbourne Hotel Dublin, Republic of Ireland:

The Shelbourne Hotel is a famous hotel situated in a landmark building on the north side of St Stephen’s Green, in Dublin, Ireland. Currently operated by Marriott International’s Renaissance Hotel brand, the hotel has 265 rooms in total and reopened in March 2006 after undergoing an eighteen-month refurbishment.

=====

John McCurdy designed the hotel and the studio of M. M. Barbezet of Paris cast the four external statues, two Nubian Princesses and their shackled slave girls.

=====

The Shelbourne Hotel was founded in 1824 by Tipperaryman Martin Burke, when he acquired three adjoining townhouses overlooking Dublin’s St Stephen’s Green – Europe’s largest garden square. Burke named his grand new hotel The Shelbourne, after William Petty, 2nd Earl of Shelburne.

=====

In the early 1900s, Alois Hitler, Jr, the half brother of Adolf Hitler, worked in the hotel while in Dublin.

=====

In 1922, the hotel played a very important part in the founding of the Irish nation when the Irish Constitution was drafted in room 112, now known as The Constitution Room.

About the Renaissance Hotel brand by Marriott International:

Renaissance Hotels is a worldwide brand of hotels and resorts. The brand is owned by Marriott International and many Renaissance Hotels are managed by Marriott, however some are operated under a franchise license.

=====

Renaissance Hotels, Resorts and Suites cater to an upmarket segment of the traveling public. While initially acquired by Marriott as a secondary-brand, in recent years Renaissance has established itself as a boutique-like hotel chain.

=====

Renaissance Hotels was founded in 1982 as Ramada Renaissance Hotels, the upscale division of Ramada Inns, Inc.

=====

In 1989 the bulk of the Ramada hospitality and franchise system was acquired by New World Development Company of Hong Kong (the U.S. rights to the Ramada name were sold to Prime Hospitality), and the former Ramada Corp. was renamed Aztar Corp. New World established Renaissance as a stand-alone brand.

=====

In 1993, New World acquired Stouffer Hotels from Nestle and folded the Stouffer hotels into the Renaissance chain. New World took their management and franchising company public, while retaining ownership of many of the individual hotels through its CTF Holdings subsidiary.

=====

In 1997 Marriott acquired the Netherlands-incorporated Renaissance Hotel Group N.V., and retained the Renaissance brand, while eventually shedding the Ramada International business in phases to Cendant Corp. In 2005 Marriott acquired most of the remaining New World/CTF owned Renaissance Hotels in North America and Europe, with the intent of selling them under long-term management and/or franchise contracts.

Cordes sur Ciel: façade Renaissance

Cordes sur Ciel, à 80 km de Toulouse, proche de Rodez et d’Albi, se situe dans le département du Tarn (81)
C’est un village qui témoigne de manière exceptionnelle de l’architecture des siècles passés. Ici une maison datant de la Renaissance.

Le site officiel de la ville nous dit:

"La cité fut fondée en 1222 par le comte de Toulouse, dans la période de reconquête occitane qui suivit la mort du chef de la croisade lancée contre les Cathares du Midi déclarés hérétiques. Cordes est la première et la plus importante des «bastides», c’est-à-dire des villes nouvelles, créées pour recueillir les populations que la guerre avait privées de toit et de feu."

Some more big dance tunes from 1991 – 93, this time using some Sasha and John Digweed’s Renaissance Mix collection. A must have for any true dance music fan. 1. Moby – Go (1991) 2. Moby – Go (Nightime Mix) 3. Jaco – Show Some Love 4. Spooky – Little Bullet (High Velocity Mix 1993) Photographs from lightningphotography.com I was thinking of uploading the complete Renaissance mix on here as I think it should be compulsory listening, however someone has already done that, so I though I would try the next best thing and incorperate it into some of my mixes. This was a daunting task as it is such a good album and I did not want to ruin it by tampering with it, however the result is actually not too bad, so here it is! I hope you enjoy!
