All public spaces within the Columbia Marriott, including lobby entry, main lobby, restaurant / bar area, restrooms and event spaces were renovated during this 12-week project. The hotel remained in operation throughout the process, requiring use of temporary partitions throughout to conceal work from guests. As the hotel was fully operational, the construction schedule worked around the public space events. New high-end finishes include millwork, lighting, carpet, wood flooring, tile work, wall finishes and new plumbing fixtures. This fast-track project was completed in four phases.
