MIAMI—Trump Hotel Collection has renamed its historic Doral Resort as Trump National Doral Miami, as part of its restoration since the Trump Organization purchased the property in June 2012.
Once complete, the nearly 800-acre property will feature five expanded golf courses, 640 remodeled guestrooms, revamped main building, lobby, fitness center, ballrooms, pools and spa. It will also have new restaurants and bar concepts; landscaping renewal and technology upgrades to all rooms and meeting and event space.
Trump Hotel Collection appointed WATG and Wimberly Interiors to spearhead the architectural transformation while preserving the historic integrity of the property. The Trump Organization’s EVP Ivanka Trump serves as the principal behind all of the resort’s design decisions.
Once completed, visitors can expect contemporary guestrooms adorned in a palette of neutrals, including ivory, champagne and caramel—accentuated with Mahogany wood and gold leaf Spanish revival details.
The hotel’s eight villas will also be renamed in honor of well-known golfers; with each room to feature artwork comprised of classic black and white photos of a golf great. In addition, the exteriors of the villas and main Clubhouse area will undergo a transformation, receiving a Coquina treatment.
