Thomas Hamilton & Associates, P.C. renovates Jackson Hilton

The Jackson Hilton in Mississippi completed a $6.4-million renovation of its public spaces, guestrooms and Presidential Suite, restaurant and bar, Executive Lounge, board rooms, ballroom, penthouse ballroom and outdoor pool/cabana areas.

Thomas Hamilton & Associates, P.C. (THA), a hospitality architectural and design firm, was chosen to blend the classic “old South” feeling reflecting the area, with a modern, fresh décor using shades of grays and silvers, accented with pops of rich raspberry, dark plum, blue and green.

In the lobby, the new carpet displays a large scale “trellis” pattern with damask motifs, which lays across the existing marble floor for an updated look. In addition, built-in benches run continuously along the front lobby wall compliment the traditional furnishings (accents of blue, raspberry and beige), juxtaposed with chrome and glass tables, and soft grey/white chairs. Contrasting with the more contemporary lobby space is the redesigned ballroom and pre-function space, offering a classical venue for events.

Other highlights of this renovation include the new “Executive Lounge,” designed to provide a social and meeting zone for smaller groups. THA used the stark contrast of bright white against greens and greys in the carpet to jazz the space; the carpet concept originated from a Victorian pattern, enlarged to fit a new millennium design scale. The newly renovated “Presidential Suite” has a new palette with dark wood flooring, contrasting with soft grey and gold tones used throughout the space. THA designed this suite to reflect classical elegance, with a modern twist.
