Hotel management and services company Marshall Hotels & Resorts has announced a complete overhaul of the 259-room Sheraton Hotel Airport and Conference Center Grand Rapids in Michigan, US.

Work on the $14m transformation of the previously Crowne Plaza Grand Rapids Airport & Conference Center will start from December 2021.

The renovated property will feature the recently unveiled Marriott’s new Sheraton concept, which reimagined public spaces and guest rooms.

In addition to upgrading existing spaces, the refurbished Sheraton Hotel Airport and Conference Center Grand Rapids will comprise a new, soon-to-be-announced restaurant.

The hotel will have 21,000ft2 of meeting and banquet space, new Sheraton Club Lounge for Sheraton Club standard rooms, indoor/outdoor swimming pool and fitness area as well as 24-hour airport shuttle.

Marshall Hotels & Resorts president and CEO Mike Marshall said: “Following the completion of the renovation currently scheduled for June 2022, the hotel will have undergone a complete reimaging, bringing it to ‘like-new’ status.

“The renovation will touch on myriad aspects of the hotel, from exterior signage and public spaces to guest rooms. The process will be conducted in phases to create minimal guest interruptions, and we cannot wait to share Grand Rapids’ ‘newest’ hotel with area business and leisure travellers.”

The revamp work is being financed by investment management firm Twain Financial Partners.

LittKP Group is serving as the project manager, while design and architecture firm Gensler is responsible for offering architectural services.

Sheraton Hotel Airport and Conference Center Grand Rapids is owned by HDDA Grand Rapids.

The renovation is designed to fulfil post-Covid business and leisure traveller demands.
