The recently completed renovation of the Hilton Naples emphasizes guest comfort, health, and fitness, efficient technology, enhanced environmental sustainability, and a continued sense of community. “We are thrilled with the finished product and the hotel renovation was the perfect opportunity to further our core values.” said Hilton Naples General Manager Clark Hill. “In addition to aesthetically interesting designs and comfortable furnishings, other enhancements were made based on feedback from our guests and our commitment to be a good corporate citizen.”
For the past two years the Hilton Naples has been undergoing enhancements throughout the property. The casual elegance of the lobby, with its natural stone flooring, iron work sculptures, and old-world pillars, has been enhanced with new furniture groupings that provide comfortable, intimate spaces for people to relax and visit. New original artwork adds an interesting element to the lobby and pre-meeting space. The community feel of the lobby is accentuated by the addition of the Connectivity Station; a complimentary computer work area offering two PC and two Apple computer workstations.
In the sleeping room tower, the guestrooms were painted and include interesting colors for accent walls and new entry tile, carpet, and window treatments were installed. New beds, lighting fixtures, and ergonomic task chairs were added. The guestroom bath areas received new tile, vanities, LED back-lit mirrors, make-up mirrors, sconces, and fixtures.
In the meeting space, new window treatments and wall vinyl were installed. An all-new Boardroom includes a custom manufactured table with twenty executive chairs, and an 80 inch digital display screen.
Providing opportunities for personal fitness, relaxation, and proper sleep were important considerations during the design process and in the selection of products. The fitness facility tripled in size and is equipped with all new Precor cardio, strength, and balance equipment. In the sleeping rooms, the mattresses and bed linens selected for the new beds are Hilton proprietary Suite Dreams Mattresses and Serenity Bed linens, products designed after extensive testing by the brand to provide restful sleep.
Technology upgrades include an all-new system for high-speed internet connectivity which enables exceptionally fast connection and download speeds and expandable bandwidth capability for guests. Guest room and public space door locks are digital key enabled to accept smart-phone downloaded electronic room keys.
The property’s sustainability efforts were enhanced during the renovation with the selection of energy-efficient LED lighting and low-water utilization, yet very efficient, plumbing fixtures as replacements. Zero or very low VOC paint was used to protect the indoor air quality.
