Through this exciting round of renovations we are able to provide an elevated atmosphere and enhanced accommodations at a number of properties across the country.”

THG’s most transformative renovation in South Bend, Ind. rebranded the property from a 30-year-old Marriott to a brand new DoubleTree by Hilton. The complete renovation encompassed all 291 guestrooms and 15,000 square feet of meeting space as well as corridors, lobby, atrium, mechanical and HVAC updates. The newly-rebranded hotel now boasts a Starbucks store and vibrant new restaurant concept, Baker’s Bar and Grille, which offers a classic American menu, daily drink specials and Studebaker-themed décor.
Renovations at Holiday Inn Express properties (Anchorage, Alaska; Corvallis, Ore.; Lewiston, Idaho) focused on public area and guestroom enhancements to align with individual property improvement plans. The refreshed spaces feature contemporary styled furniture and an updated color palette.
Hilton Garden Inn properties (Corvallis, Ore.; Issaquah, Wash.; Kennewick, Wash.) received cosmetic upgrades to refresh and modernize the common areas with accent paint, decorative art and signage, as well as new lighting to brighten up and enhance inviting entryways. This has transformed the Pavilion into an open and flexible space, combining Hilton Garden Inn brand personality elements with functional guest amenities.
Additional renovations include new breakfast room layout, furniture and finishes at Plaza Inn & Suites at Ashland Creek (Ashland, Ore.); guestroom and lobby renovations at Fairfield Inn & Suites Anchorage (Anchorage, Alaska); public area and guestroom updates at Comfort Inn Ship Creek (Anchorage, Alaska) and DoubleTree Hotel Cleveland; and guestroom updates at Courtyard Richland at Columbia Point (Richland, Wash.).
