The transformation includes upgrades to all 330 guest suites, 17,800 square feet of meeting space and an expanded fitness center. Also introduced is a new executive lounge.

The hotel’s new design scheme includes rich finishes, exotic woods and metals inspired by the intricate details of the guitar, while polished marble and granite finishes are also used. All 330 guest suites now include custom furnishings and artwork, along with a modern color palette of steely grey and dark woods accented by bright pops of coral. Each guest suite’s private parlor has a centerpiece sectional sofa, custom entertainment center wall with 46 inch flat screen high definition TV, and a workstation.

Bathroom upgrades include granite accents, Peter Thomas Roth bath amenities and glass-enclosed walk-in showers for king guest suites. A new executive lounge located off the lobby stretches across 2,024 square feet and has spaces for work and leisure. Highlighted by earth tones, woods and stone along with touches of periwinkle, the space includes window walls, a centerpiece fireplace, a private meeting room, data ports, computers and printers. The F&B service includes hors d’oeuvres served tapas style and an international wine list.
