The Wyndham Virginia Crossings Hotel & Conference Center in Glen Allen, Virginia, committed over $3 million for renovations that include the property's lobbies, restaurants, meeting and function space and adding new gardens, reception areas and recreational facilities. Plans are also under way for renovation of all 183 guestrooms and suites, to be completed in 2013.
The property’s purpose-built, IACC-approved conference facilities are set on 20 landscaped acres, with the Wyndham Virginia Crossings Hotel & Conference Center's new fixtures and furnishings include carpeting and artwork in meeting rooms and the Henrico Ballroom. Ergonomic chairs replace conventional banquet chairs, and private dining rooms can accommodate up to 40 guests for cocktails or dinner.
A PSAV high speed digital network, expandable to 100 megabytes downloads speeds will be installed throughout the property.
The Wydham Virginia Crossings is the first hotel in the US to feature the new Quadriga guestroom media center and communications portal, offering HDTVs, movies, audio and high speed Internet with wireless controls. The digital system provides video on demand and high speed Internet services to guests via the in-room TV.
The newly renovated restaurants and reception areas accommodate corporate and private events indoors and out. Also available are the swimming pool, fitness center, golf, cycling trails and a putting green.
Although built in the 1980s as headquarters for Figgie International, the architecture of the central Jefferson Building is reminiscent of former US President Thomas Jefferson's home, Monticello. Inside, the Jeffersonian influence continues with the newly refurbished Jefferson Lobby, with a marbled reception area, staircase and new furnishings. The Jefferson Sitting Room is painted Monticello Yellow.
Earlier, in June 2012, the 3,000 pound Liberty Golden Eagle atop the Jefferson Building was taken down and its 24k gold plating restored. The eagle was then hoisted back to its perch, in re-christening ceremonies.
