Holiday Inn, Charleston, WV
Category: Renovation and Expansion - Rebranding with Intercontinental Hotel Group (IHG)
Location: Charleston, WV
Size: 110,000 SF
This 160 room hotel in Charleston, WV was built in the 1960's and had not undergone a major renovation since its opening. The hotel had an underused outdoor swimming pool, no fitness center, and the reception, dining room, and meeting rooms were substandard by current hotel brand standards. The design solution involved a complete exterior and interior renovation, a new indoor swimming pool and fitness center structure addition, a new outdoor entertainment plaza accessible from the swimming pool room interior, and two new conference center quality meeting rooms, as well as a new porte cochere entrance structure. We reinterpreted the stair tower as a 60' high LED illuminated brand standard Tower Element. This project received the 2012 Intercontinental Hotel Group (IHG) Renovations Award as recognition of the hotel's work to join the IHG family of brands including extensive interior and exterior renovations work.
