ZWA redesign gives San Diego’s Mission Valley Marriott a resort-like feel

The San Diego Mission Valley Marriott has just emerged from a redesign overseen by Zimmerman Weintraub Associates (ZWA). The Chicago-based design, architecture and project management firm brought casual sophistication to this Southern California hotel through a complete overhaul of its interiors.

To reposition the existing hotel and give it more of a SoCal resort-like feel, the ZWA team introduced a lighter, more open environment and by blurring the boundary between indoor and outdoor spaces to take advantage of San Diego’s climate.

ZWA also designed the new M Club Lounge concept, an extension of the Great Room. The design team used a variety of textures and colors in the upscale space where guests can work, dine or connect with others.
