The Westin Philadelphia Completes Multi-Phase, Multimillion-Dollar Renovation
The Westin Philadelphia, an award-winning Westin Hotels & Resorts property managed by HHM Hotels in Philadelphia's City Center, announced the completion of a multi-million dollar renovation. With highlights including upgrades to the property's guest rooms and suites, public spaces and dining experience complemented by enhanced amenities and sustainability initiatives, the renovation signals the next era of excellence at the celebrated urban escape.
"Offering a standout guest experience is our top priority and in order to meet evolving demand, we saw an opportunity to elevate the Westin Philadelphia experience, further positioning the property as a true home away from home for all types of guests," said Matt Nelson, general manager of The Westin Philadelphia. "This renovation has allowed us to further elevate our standard of luxury through thoughtful design, amenities and experiences that meet the needs of the modern leisure and business traveler."
Conceptualized by award-winning hospitality design firm Bill Rooney Studio Inc., The Westin Philadelphia's revitalized interiors seamlessly blend elements of modern organic design and heritage interior architecture to create a thoughtful balance of then and now. Neutral hues of wheat, gray and white complemented by brass accents create a refined yet energized environment. Moments of whimsy include hand-selected graphic art and organic leaf-patterned carpet in the property's public spaces that serves as a nod to Pennsylvania founder William Penn's passion for biophilic design.
"The Westin Philadelphia's design celebrates Philadelphia's urban spirit and rich history while simultaneously serving as an opportunity to connect guests with the surrounding natural world, which is often overlooked in city design," said Bill Rooney, president and designer at Bill Rooney Studio, Inc. "Through the selected color pattern, materials, accents and intentional focus on shared spaces, the renovation celebrates the spirit of Philadelphia while offering an inspired yet customizable palette for weddings, meetings, events and beyond."
The Westin Philadelphia features 294 luxuriously appointed guest rooms including 19 breathtaking suites that offer a calm, restful retreat. Ranging from 380 to 1,353 square feet, accommodations showcase the inspired neutral color palette found throughout the property in addition to wood furniture and accents, pops of color and iconic Heavenly® Bed and Heavenly® Bath amenities. Expansive windows allow natural light to billow through and complement the natural design principles found throughout the property. The Westin Philadelphia's thoughtfully curated accommodations fit the needs of all travelers and in celebration of the renovation, the property is offering overnight guests 5,000 Marriott Bonvoy® bonus points with their stay, bookable at this link.
With more than 15,000 square feet of upgraded event space including the Grand Ballroom, Georgian Room and third-floor foyer, The Westin Philadelphia is the ideal destination for intimate gatherings and large-scale events with each space designed with versatility, customizability and productivity in mind. In honor of the revitalized groups spaces, The Westin Philadelphia is offering up to 10% rebate on guest rooms; suite upgrades and VIP amenities at the group rate, based on availability; complimentary refreshments and triple Marriott Bonvoy ® points for planners and clients for groups that book 20 or more rooms with details available at this link.
