Eaglewood Resort & Spa completed a two-month, $1.2-million renovation of its conference center.
The makeover encompassed the conference center’s meeting rooms and common areas, including new carpeting, wall vinyl, draperies and sheers, upholstery and furnishings, along with a technology upgrade to accommodate up to 100 megabytes per second of bandwidth.
The colors, inculding earth tones, fall in line with Eaglewood’s Prairie-style design, which is found throughout the resort and pays homage to architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
The Eaglewood project was designed by Moncur Design Associates, based in Toronto. John Lee, Eaglewood’s director of facilities, and CRS, based in Canton, Ga., which specializes in hotel renovations, oversaw the renovation.
With more than 37,000 square feet, Eaglewood Resort & Spa is an IACC-certified space. The resort has 37 function rooms, a ballroom and amphitheater, outdoor terrace and conference concierge. Eaglewood's 18-hole championship golf course, health spa, and six-lane Brunswick Retro Bowling alley are also available.
Eaglewood Resort & Spa joined a group of only 40 hotels nationwide in 2010 in receiving the Silver Green Seal certification for efforts to reduce the impact on the environment.
