Fort Worth, TX (July 19, 2013) - Fort Worth's Hilton Garden Inn North hotel has completed a major renovation of its 98 guest rooms and public space. The hotel is owned by Austin-based Summit Hotel Properties, a publicly traded REIT, and managed by Irving-based Pillar Hotels & Resorts.
"We are delighted to unveil the hotel's new look," said David Weston, General Manager of the Fort Worth hotel. "The new concept and nature-driven design allows us to engage and serve our guests in a more interactive way, which is more reflective of the Hilton Garden Inns' open, welcoming style."
The $2.8 million renovation includes fully updated guest rooms, a complete lobby renovation and exterior refinishing. The lobby's nature-inspired design is part of Hilton Garden Inns' ‘Project Grow' brand-wide lobby revitalization initiative.
The Project Grow lobby updates include custom design colors, patterns and finishes. New furniture and fixtures were implemented in an open flow layout promoting socialization and encouraging guests to relax, linger and enjoy the Garden Pavilion. The garden party spirit is carried through with cabana draperies, signature pendant lighting and lanterns, and planters with lush foliage. The hotel's signature food and beverage offerings are highlighted on garden carts and tables. Communal breakfast bars and tables serve as social gathering areas and impromptu meeting spaces throughout the day.
The fully renovated guest rooms were updated with new furnishings, fixtures, vinyl wall coverings, carpet, drapes and windows. Each guest room features the brand's signature Serta bed, a 32" HDTV, and easy-to-set alarm clock. Business focused travelers work smart with complimentary WiFi access, a large work space with an ergonomic Herman Miller chair, and secure printing facilities.
Before setting off to explore historic Fort Worth, guests can enjoy a full cooked-to-order breakfast featuring omelets and the brand's signature waffles in the Garden Grille. Dinner, drinks and room service are also available daily. The Pavilion Pantry® is open 24 hours and offers a complete selection of snacks and last-minute travel essentials.
