DETROIT, May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of a $30 million renovation project, the remodeling of 100,000 square feet of meeting space at Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center will begin on May 19. This phase of the riverfront hotel's massive overhaul is expected to be completed in December. The meeting space at the Detroit Marriot spans three floors with 34 separate rooms and the renovation will enhance functionality as well as aesthetics. The renovation will be done in phases enabling group functions to continue without disruption.

Additionally, this downtown Detroit hotel will completely refurbish its two-level Concierge Lounge located on the 56 th & 57 th floors. Available to elite members of Marriott Rewards and those guests staying in Concierge guest rooms, the Concierge lounge offers a place to socialize and enjoy complimentary refreshments.

"We're very excited to begin this next big step of a $30 million renovation that is an investment in the City of Detroit, as well as an investment in this Michigan landmark hotel," said Shonda Johnson, Area General Manager of the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center. "Our modernized, beautiful and more flexible meeting space will help draw more visitors and milestone events to our amazing city."

One of the tallest buildings in the Western Hemisphere, Marriott International first announced plans to renovate its 71-floor hotel in downtown Detroit, MI in August 2013. Renovations to 1,329 guest rooms began in February 2014 and are expected to be finished in October 2014. The renovation of the 52 suites will be completed by December 2014. The 70-floor hotel will continue to remain open throughout the project with a few floors undergoing reconstruction at a time.

Similar to the decor of the new guest rooms, the hotel's meeting areas will have a comfortably modern theme reflecting the vibe of the city and the fabric of the region. The design team took inspiration from the Detroit River and the round, concrete and glass architectural features of the Renaissance Center. Grey, taupe, watery blue, moss green and touches of purple combine for a soft yet striking new color palate. Textured wall vinyl on large pillars will resemble ripples of cool water while polished wood paneling adds warmth to the space.
