Work on this project included a complete renovation of the public areas, which encompassed a transformation of the lobby, restaurant, deli, 20,000 square-foot kitchen, gift shop, meeting rooms, ballrooms and an octagon-shaped poolside bar. Optum was also responsible for converting 25,000 square feet of the existing parking garage into an elegant expo hall as well as the construction of a 10,000 square-foot IBM training facility. The entire project was conducted during regular hotel operating hours without hindering guest relations or activities.
