A Transformation Timeline

March 2019 The multi-million dollar makeover is nearing completion! Our newly remodeled lobby is anchored by an inviting hearth lounge providing warmth, ambiance and comfort. The reinvented space offers 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 are greeted as neighbors and friends, invited to sip a sweet tea and stay awhile. 

All 507 guest rooms and suites are currently being redesigned. Presenting easy nature-inspired elements, rooms and corridors 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.

April 2019

The Spa will undergo a restoration to enhance surroundings and expand the dressing areas for an even more tranquil, relaxed environment. The Spa will be closed from March 29 – April 22 for this enhancement. 

June 2019

Trade Root Restaurant and Lounge will undergo a minor renovation in mid-June. The Whitley guest room 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.
