BRUSSELS, BELGIUM--(Marketwired - Feb 13, 2014) -  The mermaid logo, signature green straws and bright white cups of Starbucks coffee is undoubtably recognizable across the globe. The Renaissance Brussels Hotel is thrilled to be the first continental European Marriott hotel to partner with this renowned coffee brand.

"We are delighted to be associated with a strong brand such as Starbucks," say Vincent Clinckemaillié, director of food & beverage at Renaissance Brussels hotels. "We believe it will strengthen our positioning as a lifestyle product where our guests are encouraged to 'Live Life to Discover," he added.
