The Boston Park Plaza Hotel has reportedly completed the second phase of its three-phase renovation project worth $100m.
Opened in 1927, the historic building was bought by Sunstone Hotel Investors, which began a series of renovations, including the creation of 5,500 ft² of retail space and renovation of the hotel’s exterior facade, reported Boston Business Journal.
Other notable changes includes replacement of the hotel’s roof, exterior facade and sidewalk surroundings, installation of a heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system, along with renovation of 50,480ft² of professional meeting and pre-function space.
The renovation process for the hotel’s lobby, meeting spaces and mezzanine levels and main entrances began in December, and Sudbury-based Park Torres Design was given the responsibility to add new features to the hotel, which once hosted the president of the US.
The hotel features 1,054 luxurious guest rooms and suites that are suitable for business and leisure travellers.
The renovations also added Off The Common, the Boston Park Plaza’s new restaurant and lounge, a 19,000ft² fitness center by DavidBartonGym, and Strip by Strega, a 5,700ft² high-energy steakhouse concept by Boston-based restaurateur Nick Varano among others, reports BostInno.
The third phase of the renovation is scheduled to begin in November and the entire work is expected to be completed by 2016. It will include complete renovations of all guest rooms and corridors, as well as replacement of furniture.
The property is located three miles from Logan International Airport and is close to all major tourist attractions, including the Boston Common, which is one of the oldest public parks.
