Hilton Garden Inn, Lakeshore Drive
Hilton Garden Inn is one of Hilton's most popular upscale brands. Property management opted for a complete renovation of an existing hotel to embody this expectation better. Pond's design team began this endeavor by adapting the existing layout to match the brand standards set forth by Hilton for Hilton Garden Inn properties. In the lobby, this adaptation included new Pod-style check-in areas and moving the bar into a more centralized location to foster a more inviting public space. Enhancements to the food and beverage services included an open-display kitchen for cooked-to-order dishes; "The Shop," a 24-hour, grab-and-go retail space; and a self-serve coffee bar featuring refreshed wood finishes that mirror those displayed in the lobby. Other features in the redesign are increased natural light throughout the building and open-style seating in the hotel's multi-purpose meeting spaces. These meeting spaces are designed to accommodate everything from impromptu meetings to cocktail parties. To tie the entire building into its newly created identity of timelessness and durability, the Pond team thoughtfully curated artwork for the property. These pieces are evocative of Hilton Garden Inn's brand identity and are prominently displayed atop the renovated lobby fireplace and within prototype rooms. These aspects combined to provide a renovation that seamlessly fits into Hilton Garden Inn's high-end style.
