ATLANTA—Westin Buckhead Atlanta will begin phase three of its hotel-wide renovation project in April, remodeling 365 guestrooms.

The $9-million room renovations are scheduled to be completed in August. This is the third and final phase of the hotel’s three-phase renovation including remodeling the guestrooms, hotel lobby upgrade and renovations of more than 30,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space.

The design scheme and furnishings of the new guestrooms will incorporate the Westin brand philosophy of using natural elements, subtle earth tones and rich textures to create a relaxing environment, according to the company. The bathrooms will also be enhanced with new stone and walnut vanities featuring illuminated mirrors. Most king rooms will include a loveseat, which provides additional sleeping space for guests traveling as a family, as well as new 42-in. flat screen televisions. Additionally, the headboards will feature adjustable LED lights to allow each guest reading light. Furthermore, outlets will be easily accessible at the nightstands and USB connectivity ports will be provided at the desks.
