Millennium Hotels & Resorts to renovate Millennium Hotel Durham

Millennium Hotels and Resorts announced an extensive renovation plan for Millennium Hotel Durham, forming part of a multi-million dollar investment program across many of its 14 North American properties.

Beginning in Winter 2015 with a scheduled Spring 2016 completion date, the $10.8-million project will include renovation of all 316 guestrooms, along with the property’s public spaces.

Guestrooms will be fully upgraded with new furniture, carpeting and other soft goods, while bathrooms will also see a total revamp. Changes to the rooms will result in a more modern look with accent walls complemented by softer lighting and dark woods.
