Crescent Hotels' Million Renovation - A Remarkable Transformation
Philadelphia, PA (January 17, 2018) - Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott International, Inc. (NASDAQ:MAR) and managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts, announces the completion of an expansive transformation to Sheraton Suites Philadelphia Airport Hotel. The complete, top to bottom renovation included 250 all-suite guestrooms, lobby, restaurant & bar, meeting spaces, state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor pool, and Sheraton Club Lounge.
Balongue Interiors led the design direction for the full scope renovation which focused on providing guests with a modern, effortless travel experience. Balongue pulled together neutral pieces with pops of color and disrupted geometries in all guest rooms and in the new front lobby while also adding color artwork and photography of historic Philadelphia.
"Vector, the new restaurant and bar in the Sheraton Suites Philadelphia Airport, presented a unique design challenge," says Richard Stokes the lead architect on the project. "The hotel, designed and built in the 80s, was dated, and featured a vast open atrium that is not conducive to the more intimate dining and bar experience most guests desire. The solution was to create a modern insertion into the atrium area that reduces the volume of space above diners, while remaining light and open. A wood shell structure was created, with an open slat structure that allows the natural light to filter down to every table, while creating a more defined and intimate experience within the restaurant."
Conveniently located just a mile from Philadelphia International Airport, the hotel offers complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport and unparalleled access to all of the best things to do and see in the city.
Boasting a contemporary urban design, Sheraton Suites Philadelphia Airport Hotel provides a memorable destination for both business and leisure travel. Situated near Philadelphia International Airport, this hotel features 250 beautifully appointed guestroom suites and dynamic social spaces.
