SAN DIEGO—The San Diego Marriott Mission Valley has completed a $9 million renovation of its 350 guestrooms, lobby, concierge lounge and outdoor spaces.
The renovation also encompassed the six new Parlor Suites, an additional floor of Concierge Rooms to accommodate Marriott Rewards travelers.
The guestrooms, which occupied the primary focus of the upgrades, now features new furnishings, such as a work desk and ergonomic chair, interior doors, bedding, décor, lighting, telephone systems, RFID lock systems, HVAC systems, new in-room computer safes and WiFi, which is now available in all public areas, as well.
The corridors also feature new wall coverings, floor coverings and lighting. The lobby offers more seating, and management work spaces have been moved to the lobby to create a concierge-like presence and further engagement with guests, as well as to assist with check-in and interact easily with staff.
Outdoor areas now offer more seating, and the gardens have been completely renovated to incorporate plants that have reduced the hotel’s external water usage by as much as 80%.
