Hilton Mystic completed a renovation project headed by CBT Architects. C.E. Floyd Company, a Connecticut-based general contractor, oversaw the project construction.

The Hilton Mystic Hotel, located in the coastal town of Mystic, Connecticut, was acquired by Distinctive Hospitality Group (DHG) in 2014. The redesign concept was influenced by the architectural underpinnings of the Olde Mystic Seaport, where the property is located.

The redesign included 183 new guestrooms, new ballrooms/meeting spaces, along with a completely reconfigured courtyard, lounge and IRONS restaurant. The renovation also included work in the main lobby, bar, restaurant, public restrooms, meeting rooms and ballrooms and courtyard.
