Millennium Hotels & Resorts Announces Renovations Across North American Properties

 Millennium Hotels and Resorts reaffirms its commitment to the North American market with the announcement of upgrades at its hotels in Los Angeles, Anchorage, and Buffalo.

"The continued renovations to our properties are an important step forward for our brand," said Colin Wang, Vice President Operations. "We look forward to showcasing the fresh, new look to our guests in the months to come."

Millennium Alaskan Hotel Anchorage embarks on an $8.3 million renovation encompassing a total overhaul of its 248 guest rooms along with the hotel exterior. Rooms will undergo a top-tobottom transformation that evokes a high-end Alaskan lodge feel featuring natural earth tones and a warm color scheme. These refurbishments follow recent upgrades to the hotel's public spaces including the lobby, meeting spaces, Fancy Moose Bar, Flying Machine Restaurant and the outdoor Deck at Lake Hood, which overlooks Lake Spenard, the world's busiest floatplane lake. This lakeside hotel -- the only one in Anchorage---will unveil its upgrades by the spring, marking the completion of the hotel's phased renovations.

At Millennium Biltmore Hotel Los Angeles in downtown L.A., a multi-million dollar, phased refurbishment will see upgrades to 683 guest rooms and suites beginning in spring 2015.

Opened in 1923 as the Host of the Coast, this iconic hotel is a major convention hotel and the third largest in the area. When unveiled, classic guest rooms will feel crisp yet inviting, with a warm grey palette complementing the 1920s Italian Renaissance architecture; blending modern elegance with historic grandeur. Other recent updates include a soft refurbishment in four main ballrooms and the launch of the hotel's signature Bugis Street Brasserie, L.A.'s favorite Singaporean-Chinese restaurant.The 300 guest rooms and suites at Millennium Hotel Buffalo will undergo a complete transformation with a fresh new look and modern amenities. Upgrades will be made throughout the hotel's public and meeting spaces, and will include a new restaurant concept. Renovations are slated for completion mid-summer.

This announcement follows renovations to The McCormick Scottsdale and Millennium Harvest House Boulder in 2014, as well as Millennium Hotel Minneapolis and ONE UN New York in 2013 and 2012 respectively.
