Parker Torres Design helps with Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles renovations

Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles in Chantilly, Virginia unveiled its renovations and the installation of new technologies in the property. Key upgrades include new guestrooms designed for meeting attendees, a restyled conference dining room, a new restaurant and soon-to-be-completed updated fitness center, thanks to an investment by owner Host Hotels & Resorts. Mobile-friendly apps were also introduced.

The food and beverage outlets at the hotel take center stage in the renovation. Now available is Wellington's, a restaurant that pays homage to its namesake, "Iron Duke". Wall coverings that include the famous Duke's letters to generals during the Napoleonic Wars are a highlight of décor conceived by Parker Torres Design of Sudbury, Mass. Executive chef Todd Schofield created the menu. Meanwhile, newly decorated Palm Court offers daily breakfast and a Sunday brunch in a club-like atmosphere. It serves as a dedicated private dining room located adjacent to third-floor function space at the conference center in Virginia.

Twenty new third-floor guestrooms offer access to the private dining room and function space, as well as various amenities including 47-inch HDTVs and refrigerators. In-drawer safes have been installed in guest rooms throughout the Chantilly hotel.
