645 Front Street

Renaissance occupies an entire square block in downtown San Diego’s established and prestigious Marina District neighborhood.  Its two towers (both with the same 645 Front Street address) are centrally located across the street from Horton Plaza and Ralph’s grocery store (open 24 hours a day).  With 24-hour security, a swimming pool, larger than average bedrooms, and great views, Renaissance is an excellent choice for living in downtown San Diego.
