Halifax, NS, Canada

The previous suites and guestrooms were dated and lacked personality. The new design brief mandated that the new guestrooms appeal to a broader audience, and younger travelers. Guests expect a high level of sophistication today, and the new design aimed to exceed these requirements while respecting the reputation of the hotel and the city in which it is situated. The goal of the redesign of the guestrooms at the Prince George hotel was to create a rich and textural contemporary space with a sense of relaxed luxury that is reflective of the natural surroundings of Halifax. A palette of washed golden oak, shades of grey and deep blue are reminiscent of the sandy beaches and moody seas that surround the city. The neutral yet rich scheme in combination with clean lined casegoods in a pale oak will give the guestrooms longevity.

Technology requirements are also a must to appeal to today's business and holiday traveler. The new casegoods were designed to incorporate ease of recharging at both the desk and bedside tables.

Other elements from nature such as wood grained inspired carpets and cut-velvet leaf fabrics reinforce the sophisticated natural concept. These elements are paired with bold striped wall vinyl and sofas, elegant contemporary light fixtures and metallic tufted headboards to bring just a touch of glam to the rooms. The resulting guestrooms are warm, visually textural and luxurious. The new design is in keeping with the hotel's four Diamond status, and strives to be equal parts inviting, relaxed and upscale.
