ANCHORAGE, Alaska (PRWEB) December 18, 2017
Westmark Hotels announced the completion of major renovations at its Westmark Anchorage hotel. The 14-floor hotel in the heart of downtown Anchorage received over $1 million in remodeling funds. The project touches significant portions of the property and reaffirms its place as one of the top hotels in the city. Further updates are planned in the future.
Changes in the main lobby bring a new level of sophistication and warmth, providing guests with a cozy place to mingle and gather. The lobby received new tile flooring, custom carpet, ceilings and lighting fixtures. New furnishings, including leather club chairs, were selected and additional seating was installed. The focal point of the lobby is its fireplace, with a large planked-wood façade and Cambria stone accents. A maple front desk with a laser-cut metal overlay is reminiscent of the waves from nearby Cook Inlet, and meets guests upon check-in.
Guest rooms were a big focal point in the project, receiving new beds, headboards, bedding, USB charging stations and flat-screen televisions. New carpet was installed in select rooms. The upper-floor corridors were given a dramatic rejuvenation, including new flooring, ceilings, lighting, wall coverings and artwork featuring natural elements of Anchorage.
“Our guests’ comfort is of utmost importance to us, and investments like these ensure that we deliver the Westmark Hotels promise of warm, northern hospitality for years to come,” said General Manager Kevin Batters. “We are thrilled with the contemporary look and feel of the renovations and know our guests will appreciate the transformation.”
In addition to the improvements, guest elevators will receive an upgrade in spring 2018. Select guest rooms are refurbished each year.
