Two Waldorf Astoria resorts to undergo enhancement projects

Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, a Hilton Worldwide brand, has announced that it is embarking on a multi-phase transformation of two of its Western US iconic properties.

The Arizona Biltmore, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, has 740 guest accommodations inspired by architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Its transformation will include guestrooms and suites, meeting spaces, ballrooms, pre-function rooms and the prohibition-era Mystery Room. In keeping with Arizona Biltmore's legacy, a palette of desert colors and mixed metals will be incorporated throughout the resort, along with 1930s era artwork reflective of its history and prominence in Phoenix. Each guestroom will be accented by contemporary furnishings with wall coverings that reflect the trademarked geometric and embossed stonework patterns for which Arizona Biltmore is known for.

La Quinta Resort & Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort and PGA WEST, located in the Greater Palm Springs area, has 620 guest casitas and suites with 98 one-, two- and three-bedroom villas. The resort is set among both mountains and golf courses. The resort's hacienda-style will be preserved as the transformation of guestrooms and casitas will juxtapose traditional Spanish-style architecture with contemporary furnishings. Infusing hues from La Quinta's hand-painted tiles and surrounding desert landscaping, guestrooms will incorporate a foundation of chocolate tones, creams and terracotta, while cool blues and pastoral oranges will be highlighted in the fabric choices.
