Complete refurbishment brings hotel to “like-new” status.
SAN RAMON, CALIF. – Officials of the 368 -room San Ramon Marriott announced the completion of a $17 million renovation. The hotel, owned by an affiliate of Lone Star Funds and operated by HEI Hotel & Resorts, a leading hospitality investment and management company, received a top-to-bottom refurbishment to upgrade guest rooms, public spaces and back-of-house services to bring the hotel to “like-new” status.
“To compliment the natural beauty of our San Ramon setting, we focused on the renowned California Missions as our design inspiration,” said Robert Hendricks, director of sales and marketing, San Ramon Marriott. “From the historic Spanish missions to the majestic El Camino Real, California is known for its beautiful architecture. We want our guests to have a more experiential taste of this when they stay with us. In addition to the beautiful design aspects, we also went to great lengths to include and/or upgrade the services and amenities most requested by today’s business and leisure travelers. In the heart of Contra Costa County, San Ramon Marriott will become the market and segment destination of choice for discerning travelers.”
The renovation touched on all aspects of the hotel. All guest rooms received new soft and case goods, and new furniture was installed in public areas. The meeting space was upgraded completely, including new carpeting, wallpaper and air walls. The lobby, including the front desk reception area, were enhanced with new paint, wall coverings, front desk background and new furniture. A chandelier was installed in the dining area, which also was updated with new lighting, wall coverings, furniture and bar redesign. In addition to a new M Club, Marriott’s private lounge space for Bonvoy members, the lobby has been fully renovated to fully take advantage of the lush California landscape.
Nestled at 2600 Bishop Drive, the San Ramon Marriott is proximate to multiple business headquarters and within walking distance of Bishop Ranch City Center and Roundhouse Conference Center.
