Signaling the re-imagination of an elevated guest experience, The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa announces a transformation of its 732 guestrooms – including 55 suites – and corridors with designs that aim to present a striking new interpretation of modern eco-luxury upon the project’s holiday 2019 completion. The refined guestrooms and corridors will feature expansive contemporary interior redesigns and enhancements inspired by the Southwest, all while preserving the Kierland character for which the resort is so renowned.
“We are thrilled to welcome guests and the community to the next iteration of our property’s evolution as it adapts to the needs of tomorrow’s luxury traveler and celebrates the enduring spirit of the Southwest,” said Brian Montalbano, resort manager. “The debut of The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa’s new guestrooms and resort experiences underscores the exciting growth and development in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, and our elevated resort experience will further its status as a sought-after destination to visit now.”
Designed in partnership with Parker Torres Design Inc., the transformed guestrooms endeavor to better ground each guest with a connection to the natural world and local Sonoran environment, evoking a sense of living amidst the desert.
Beginning with the guestroom corridors and lighting, the wayfinding to each guestroom intends to reveal a sense of Arizona’s mining history with flashes of metals interspersed among the desert sands and textures. Upon entry into the guestrooms, the color palette and artwork offer a reflection of iconic desert landscapes with soft, neutral desert hues. Inlayed wood patterns captured in sun-baked tones speak to modernized Sonoran Desert patterns, while fabrics capture the Southwestern artisan labors of hand-crafted designs. Accent wallcoverings aspire to reflect sun-setting on desert sand, paying homage to unfiltered Arizona sunshine – the most prevalent throughout the world.
