Doubletree Hotel, North Druid Hills, GA
Doubletree Hotel, North Druid Hills, has over 200 guestrooms, multiple meeting rooms, a bar area, lobby and an exterior, all needing renovation as part of the PIP (Property Improvement Plan), as required by the brand. The property is part of a larger portfolio that was significantly over budget for many reasons.
CDS was brought in as construction project managers to oversee the entire renovation, which was well over budget prior to our engagement. Working with the contractor and design team, we lowered the costs to the original budget and kept the job moving forward.
All public spaces were renovated including a redesign of the bar and restaurant area, porte cochere, parking lot, and exterior façade. All 209 guest rooms and baths were renovated, including several that were converted for ADA (American Disability Act) accessibility.
The entire hotel was renovated two floors at a time, keeping room displacement and guest disturbance to a minimum.
