A Transformation Timeline

October 2018

The multi-million dollar makeover begins in October with a lobby remodel. 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.

November 2018 

All 507 guest rooms and suites will be 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 will also receive upgrades for an elevated experience.

January 2019

Our newly designed lobby is expected to complete, 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. 

February 2019

Guest 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 2019

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

May 2019

The 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.
