ROK Builders, the hotel construction affiliate of Roedel Companies, completed a renovation of the Residence Inn Marriott Hartford Downtown in Hartford, Conn. The organization implemented Residence Inn’s new brand standards named “Possibilities” into the hotel’s 120 loft suites.

The company-wide initiative is designed to support extended-stay guests with a room design that offers flexible spaces where they can relax, work, eat and sleep. In addition, ROK Builders renovated the lobby, corridors and all public spaces throughout the property.

Located in the Richardson Building, the Residence Inn Marriott Hartford Downtown is managed by Waterford Hotel Group. The property offers studio, one bedroom and two bedroom suites. ROK Builders updated the suites’ to include separate zones, reflective of guest lifestyles at home.
