PORTLAND, OR—Hotel Lucia located here has completed a 2.3-million renovation of the guestroom corridors and 127 guestrooms with new furniture, lighting, drapery and carpeting.
Updating the guestroom floors is the first phase of a full renovation of Hotel Lucia that is slated to be completed in 2014. Phase two will include renovation of the lobby, meeting rooms and all public space.
Hotel Lucia’s guestrooms now include custom designed furniture made of rosewood, bed frames with integrated headboards and nightstands. New rosewood dressers feature the same glass on the drawer fronts and side tables and desks made of rosewood.
Hotel Lucia’s new guestroom design offers Simmons Black Label Napa mattresses and 100% Egyptian cotton bedding made in Italy by Mascioni Linen. Custom made lighting includes ceiling mount fixtures adjustable hinged floor lamps with opaque glass globes and dimmable three-way side table lamps with silver and gold striated bases.
The project also includes a guestroom technology package. "Coming on the heels of Hotel Lucia’s recent collaboration with Intel Labs to create an interactive social media installation in the lobby, this room renovation continues our creative reimagining of the nexus of technology and design," stated Bashar Wali, president of Provenance Hotels. “In these new rooms, guests will find not just refreshed style but serious substance—from faster connectivity to more functional furnishings.”
