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.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

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.
