Lone Star Funds renovates 7 U.S. Marriott hotels

Lone Star Funds and Pyramid Hotel Group completed a year-long, approximately $70-million Marriott Hotels redesign project that included seven Marriott hotels that are managed by Pyramid Hotel Group.

The transformations at each of the seven hotels included the guestrooms, Greatroom, M Club Lounge, lobby, and fitness and recreation amenities.

The renovated Marriott Hotels included Birmingham Marriott, Cincinnati Airport Marriott, Cincinnati North Marriott, Cincinnati Northeast Marriott, Columbus Marriott Northwest, Dallas Fort Worth South Airport Marriott and Hartford/Windsor Marriott.

Guestroom redesigns at each property include updated furniture, bedding and carpeting, and installation of a 50-inch smart TV, new refrigerators and safes. Bathrooms in the rooms were also upgraded with spa-like fixtures.

Other upgrades at the hotels include new guest check-in areas that have a chandelier and a Greatroom with seating options.

The heated indoor pool areas were also refurbished to include new lounge furniture and décor, and the fitness centers were upgraded with equipment by Life Fitness. 

Additionally, executive boardrooms and meeting spaces were updated and now have new seating, technology, audio-visual capabilities, and high-speed wired/wireless Internet.

The M Club Lounge for Gold and Platinum Elite Marriott Rewards members was relocated to the first floor of each hotel. Accessible 24 hours a day, the M Club Lounge also has free Wi-Fi, printing and power supplies.

Each hotel also added a new restaurant named to reflect the culture and history of its location.  Each restaurant has a distinctive interior design to go along with the overall theme. The new restaurants for each Marriott location include: Marre & Allen Bar & Kitchen in Birmingham Marriott (shown in photos), Boone Bar & Kitchen in Cincinnati Airport Marriott, Butler’s Bar & Kitchen in Cincinnati North Marriott, Kirkwood’s Bar & Kitchen in Cincinnati Northeast, Two Brother in Columbus Marriott Northwest, Doc’s Bar & Kitchen in Dallas Fort Worth South Airport Marriott, and Reverend’s Bar & Kitchen in Hartford Windsor Marriott.

The project started in 2016.
