When it came time to update the award-winning Residence Inn Savannah Downtown/Historic District property, Marriott needed a partner who understood the Residence Inn brand and respected Savannah’s local history and architecture. As a longtime Marriott franchisee, McKibbon was well-immersed in the world-class brand’s culture and high standards. McKibbon worked closely with the City of Savannah and the Coastal Heritage Society, a non-profit dedicated to the preservation of Savannah’s historical assets, to design the original hotel in line with the historic, local surroundings. These factors made McKibbon a natural fit for their upcoming renovation.
In just two months, McKibbon completed a $1.7 million floor-to-ceiling renovation of the entire hotel, including the guest cottages. As part of the renovation, our team implemented the new Possibilities Package, which allows for customized suite elements including different color accent walls, artwork, carpet and more. We also renovated a custom public space that integrates design elements tied to the Historic District’s Railroad Theme.
