(MINNEAPOLIS, February 1, 2023) – We saw a record number of 13 hotel projects open in 2022, including the Thompson Hotel Denver, Hotel West & Main, Tapestry Collection, dual-brand Tetra, Marriot Autograph Collection & AC Hotel Sunnyvale, and dual-brand AC Hotel by Marriott & Element Miami Brickell. The studio celebrated three groundbreakings, including the Dream Hotel Las Vegas, a luxury 525-guestroom hotel tower perched over three sprawling levels of dynamic gaming, dining, and nightlife venues. This project, opening in 2024, marks the our first hospitality project on the Las Vegas strip to include both architecture and interior design services.
We’ve risen to the challenge to ensure we don’t skip a beat in our growth, success, and delivering the design work we’re known for."
