Ethan Allen Hotel overhauled

The Ethan Allen Hotel in Danbury, Conn., completed the first phase of a three-phase, multimillion-dollar renovation of the hotel’s front and rear lobbies, ballrooms, corridors, guestrooms and public spaces. Ethan Allen, the designer, manufacturer and retailer of American furniture and accessories, is currently celebrating its 80th year as an interior design authority, and the hotel renovation is just one of many initiatives launched in honor of the milestone event.

The Ethan Allen Hotel is a full-service, four-star hotel with 193 guestrooms, two ballrooms, nine meeting rooms, a fitness room, a conservatory and an enclosed outdoor courtyard with a pool and a gazebo. The hotel’s Grand Ballroom, a space that can accommodate over 500 guests, was recently appointed with a monochromatic color palette of dove gray tones and adorned with custom-made crystal chandeliers. To complement the new modern look, the hotel also selected new table settings.


During the second phase of the renovation, which already started and continues through the summer, Ethan Allen will incorporate new furnishings into the hotel’s 193 guestrooms. The rooms will be designed to reflect “modern elegance.” This look will be achieved with warm neutral tones, rich textures, and deep woods. Each guestroom will have a flat screen TV and iPod docking station.

The third and final phase of the renovation project will focus on Fairfields Restaurant, the hotel’s full-service restaurant and lounge; it will be completed in 2014.

The Ethan Allen Hotel has interiors by Ethan Allen. Deluxe details include Ethan Allen’s Supreme Comfort signature bed, and turndown service with a chocolate placed on the guests’ pillow. The banquet facilities, meeting rooms and exclusive amenities are eyed for business and pleasure. Ethan Allen Hotel is located at 21 Lake Avenue Extension, Danbury, Conn., 06811.
