ROK Builders, the hotel construction affiliate of Roedel Companies, was retained by Apple REIT Eight to remodel and update its Residence Inn Fayetteville Cross Creek in Fayetteville, N.C. The organization will implement Residence Inn’s new brand standards named “Possibilities” into the hotel’s 92 suites, lobby, meeting space, corridors and public spaces. The project began in November 2013, and will be completed in the middle of February.
Renovations to the Residence Inn Fayetteville Cross Creek were designed to better support extended-stay guests with a room design that offers living spaces more reflective of their lifestyles at home. ROK Builders will install a flexible wall into each suite that separates the room into zones. The newly renovated suites will feature a spacious bathroom and kitchen with a full size refrigerator and stainless steel appliances. A desk will also be installed to provide guests with a more functional work area. New furniture, décor, lighting, fixtures and carpet will also be incorporated.
In addition, ROK Builders will re-design the hotel’s public spaces. The new lobby will be transformed into a multi-functional living space with a living room and lounge. Private “nooks” with personal HDTV will be added to provide a work area for guests outside of the suites. ROK Builders will also update the property’s 625-square-foot meeting room.
ROK Builders constructs and renovates hotels for its own account and third parties.
