The Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta, US, designed by the architect John Portman, is undergoing a $45m renovation.
The renovation will include redesigning of guest rooms and hallways and a $2m update to the six luxury suites located on the 69th and 70th floors.
The hotel said that the guest rooms and suites, designed by the architecture firm Cooper Carry and Atlanta interior designer Carolyn Auguer of Blackdog Studio, are inspired by the classical forms of Art Deco.
The renovation work will also add five guest rooms, bringing the total available rooms in the hotel to 1,073.
The renovation follows the recent replacement of all 6,350 windows in the hotel after a tornado in 2008 and a $13m environmental upgrade of the heating and cooling system.
The Westin Peachtree Plaza is a 73-storey tower, topped by the tri-level, revolving Sun Dial Restaurant, Bar & View.
At 754ft, The Westin Peachtree Plaza was Atlanta’s tallest building until 1987, when it was surpassed by the 820ft One Atlantic Center, also known as IBM Tower.
The Westin Peachtree Plaza features a fitness studio, a business centre, a health club, a kids club, a spa, indoor pool and outdoor pool with a retractable roof.
Each room in the Westin Peachtree Plaza features a large work desk and internet access.
The hotel’s Sun Dial Restaurant, Bar & View is also slated to undergo a $3m renovation in the coming months.
Room renovation is anticipated to be complete by mid-November 2012.
