NORTH PALM BEACH, FL—Driftwood Hospitality Management has unveiled the completion of several recent renovation projects.
Driftwood assumed management of the Westin Tyson’s Corner in early 2015 and began renovations shortly afterward. The hotel’s 405 rooms have been completely refurbished with new carpet, earth-toned wall vinyl, plush furniture, light fixtures and modern artwork. In addition to updating the rooms and the property’s 15,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, Driftwood redesigned the public space, including lounge areas and the lobby. The Westin Tyson’s Corner lobby showcases the Ambuis “living wall”—a vertical garden designed to improve indoor air quality and create a calming, more natural environment, according to the company.
The Hilton Rockville was acquired by Driftwood in September 2015 and renovations were completed in early June of this year. The property’s 315 guestrooms were renovated, featuring new carpet and wall vinyl in earthy tones, reupholstered furniture in colorful hues and new drapery. In addition, significant enhancements were made to public areas such as the Hilton Honors Lounge and the lobby, with a complete redesign of the front desk into a freestanding check-in area. The hotel’s function space was improved by adding an additional 5,000 sq. ft. of meeting space and a new restaurant/bar called Olives.
The 288-room Crowne Plaza and the 140-room Holiday Inn Express were acquired by Driftwood in December 2014. Among the enhancements include restored guestrooms, bathrooms and corridors at both hotels, as well as new furniture, contemporary artwork, and carpet and tile. Both the Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn Express lobbies have been updated using freestanding check-in stations at the front desk and comfortable open seating throughout. The Crowne Plaza features an approximate 70,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event space, all of which has been refreshed with vibrant new carpet, decorative light fixtures and new banquet furniture. Additionally, there were improvements at the Crowne Plaza restaurant, Mahogany Bar & Grill, where Driftwood installed a new bar and restaurant seating to improve the space’s functionality.
More renovation projects are on the horizon for Driftwood. Renovations currently underway include the Hilton Saratoga and the Continental South Beach, which are slated to be completed by the end of the year.
