The 660-square-foot suite has views of the park, and includes historical items such as the original ballpark's seats, pieces of the scoreboard and vintage baseball cards.

In addition to the suite, the hotel also received a new wing that adds 96 rooms and suites to the property, as well as 6,000 square feet of event space (including a 2,000-square-foot terrace) and 142 parking spaces.

The renovation began in 2014, first updating the hotel's original 145 rooms before shifting to update the lobby and meeting spaces in the first half of 2015. The project employed 57 subcontractors, vendors and materials suppliers, as well as nearly 1,000 construction workers. The architect for the project was Group One Partners, who worked with COlumbia Construction and Mortenson Construction.
