A Transformation Timeline

January 2019The multi-million dollar makeover is underway! Our newly designed lobby will unveil, anchored by an inviting hearth lounge providing warmth, ambiance and comfort. The reinvented space will offer gathering spots for reading, mingling or relaxing; a modern-take on a welcoming Southern home. Reminiscent of a traditional front porch in concept and elevated in design, guests will be greeted as neighbors and friends, invited to sip a sweet tea and stay awhile. 

All 507 guest rooms and suites are being redesigned. Presenting easy nature-inspired elements, rooms and corridors will offer a carefully-curated blend of art, custom wall coverings and decor, in soothing colors and patterns. The modern mix of rustic and feminine reveals organic order creating harmony and balance. The Whitley Club Lounge is also receiving upgrades for an elevated experience.

February 2019Guest room floors will continue to be revamped and revealed in phases. The project will pause surrounding Super Bowl LIII as we welcome guests for this momentous occasion.

March 2019The Spa will undergo a restoration to enhance surroundings and expand the dressing areas for an even more tranquil, relaxed environment. 

May 2019The Whitley transformation will be complete, but the journey will just begin. With a nod to our past and a toast to our future, we hope you join us in our excitement as we prepare to unveil reimagined spaces and introduce new concepts, all while maintaining a luxury hotel experience capped with Southern hospitality.
