Morgantown Marriot at
Waterfront Place Hotel
Owner: Minsyr-Oxbridge, LLC
Completed: Spring 2017
Cost: $16.3 Million
Contractor: Hyphen Construction Group
The Morgantown Marriott at Waterfront Place Hotel construction had to be phased to minimize the disruption of public circulation and exiting throughout the building. Plus, the desire to keep a significant number of guestrooms occupiable, either existing or new rooms, required phasing. A plan was executed to renovate one side of the lobby and separate it from the other, but still allow freedom to safely exit. We received life safety approval from the local fire marshal before executing the proposed phasing plans.
This 207-room renovation involved a complete transformation from the original traditional appearance to a contemporary European-inspired design. The entrance lobby was converted into a large open space which boasts a Starbucks, live edge bar, peninsula glass enclosed fireplace and penny mosaic pizza oven. The second floor houses an executive lounge and private exterior patio with gas fire pit. Each guestroom now has updated finishes, fabrics, and fixtures consistent with a contemporary European-inspired experience.
