A downtown hotel has renovated its rooms in anticipation of its 10th anniversary next year.

JW Marriott Grand Rapids has unveiled new guestroom interiors and updates to its common areas.

Brian Behler, GM of JW Marriott Grand Rapids, said all of the property’s 340 rooms and suites received updates, along with its guest hallways and spa treatment rooms.

To create a contemporary look, the hotel design team, led by Dan Pearson, used dark, cool gray tones in the corridors that lead to rooms with pops of color like plum and gold.

The plum tones were chosen to “inspire peace, creativity and worldliness” and are connected to the photos in each room from the “Sister Cities” collection by Dan Watts.

The re-design also features new drapes, carpets and wall vinyl.

“Our guestrooms have always been a great retreat of relaxation and enjoyment," Behler said. “We wanted to provide a refresh of new colors and keep them new for our accomplished travelers.”

Typically, hotels undertake refreshes every seven to eight years.
