Doubletree Newark Airport Hotel
Newark, New Jersey
The transformation of the first floor of the Doubletree Newark Airport Hotel changed the entire entry experience and touched the lobby, meetings rooms, atrium, restaurant, bar, grab-n-go and fitness center.
The design was inspired by the property’s proximity to the Newark Airport and the travel experience. Think of a classic business traveler. The design was crafted with a tailored, nostalgic theme in mind. The feel of 1950s menswear and suit fabrics can be seen throughout, with strong plaids and deep colors featured.
The floor plan was updated, bringing the bar out of an enclosed area and into the open to generate more activity, and in hand, more revenue. Dark wood cabanas were added to create an intimate escape from the expansive atrium’s hustle and bustle. Like the privacy of an airport club, these spaces give guests a place to get away for a cocktail and conversation. Flowing drapery and soft furniture soften the sounds that once echoed throughout a large atrium.
