The Las Vegas Marriott has completed a $4.3 million guestroom renovation and transformed two second floor hospitality suites into 600 sq. ft. of new meeting space. The changes are part of Marriott’s Future of Travel goal, which focuses on the needs of the Millennial Consumer.
The 278-room boutique-style hotel is a non-gaming property located two blocks from the Las Vegas Strip. According to general manager Keith Gamberg, the redesign will appeal to guests “who gravitate toward substance and style plus a boutique-like hotel feel and calm ambiance.”
The guestroom renovations include:
- complete hard and soft goods replacement
- new RDID lock systems
- addition of in-room safes to accommodate iPads, laptops, smartphones, etc.
- addition of outlets on all lamps and nightstands to accommodate charging of multiple electronic devices
- replacement of coffee tables with brown leather ottomans
- new design aesthetic anchored by a tall headboard with a snakeskin style padding and reading lights
- new colour palette of golds, browns and reds
- 200 of the suites have French doors that separate the bedrooms from the living room.
- living rooms feature 42-inch flat screen televisions and bedrooms have 37-inch TVS, both with 60 channels
- new bathroom lighting
- new THANN amenities (environmentally-friendly)
Additionally, the hotel’s wireless high-speed Internet access has also been completely upgraded.
According to Keith Gamberg, the hotel’s general manager, this renovation nearly completes the refurbishment of the entire hotel. “Our first floor–including the restaurant and lobby–were redone approximately 18 months ago to reflect Marriott’s Greatroom concept. In mid 2014, we will renovate all of the meeting venues on the 17th floor including the ballroom.”
