TULSA, OK, Jul 06, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) –
Adding a bold new look to the lobby of a prominent hotel in Tulsa,
Oklahoma, Crossland Construction Company will begin work July 16,
2012 at the Tulsa Marriott Southern Hills, where openness and
accessibility will dominate the extensive hotel lobby renovation.
Re-inventing the hotel lobby with new features, the GH2 Hospitality
Architects design calls for the addition of a restaurant day bar that
then converts to a full cocktail bar in the evening. Featuring
Starbucks Coffee along with other breakfast and lunchtime favorites,
this exciting new choice among restaurants in Tulsa, OK is to be
known as the Tallgrass Grille and will feature bar and private dining
in an atmosphere that highlights keynotes from Oklahoma’s revered
Tallgrass Prairie Reserve.
Using an open design and ease of accessibility to create the dramatic
new hotel lobby, GH2 Hospitality Architects is integrating the area
with other new features such as communal tables and gathering spaces
for working and socializing, while using the latest materials for a
contemporary and eye-appealing look. Headquartered in Tulsa, GH2
Hospitality Architects is an award-winning firm internationally
recognized as specializing in design projects for the hospitality
industry and has completed more than 475 projects world-wide.
Other design notes will include references to Tulsa’s famed Art Deco
influences and the city’s intrinsic past with the oil industry. While
putting the hotel at the forefront in current and leading edge
design, the architects have also included clear nods to Tulsa’s
storied historical background.
“We have great confidence in the strength of Tulsa’s economy as
evidenced by this substantial investment in our continued success,”
said Joe Gaudet, general manager of the Tulsa Marriott Southern
Hills, a premier choice among business hotels in Tulsa.
Project completion is expected for early next year, and official
debut of the renovation is tentatively planned for March. The
creative services of Cubic, another local Tulsa agency, have been
retained for logo design of the Tallgrass Grille. Cubic will also
manage the introductory events for the hotel’s new lobby in 2013.
