Mobile Hotel Gets Crown

A hotel in Mobile is receiving its final touches. Workers used a crane to move a giant crown into place on top of the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Mobile.

Streets had to be shut down so workers had enough room to maneuver. The huge structure has been sitting next to the convention center.

Once construction on the hotel is complete, the Renaissance will look like a miniature version of the nearby RSA tower.

Retirement Systems of Alabama owns both buildings. A small spire will also have to be placed on top of the roof structure at some point in the construction.
