The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel is undergoing its largest makeover in the history, and just recently they became one step closer to completion.
The hotel has completed redesigning every guest room in the 758-room Swan Hotel. The work is part of a multi-phase, multi-year, $125 million redesign project that will transform every guest room in both the Swan and Dolphin buildings. The first phase of the 1,509-room Dolphin starts later this year.
The new room is inspired by the resort’s water-themed architecture and features all-new upgraded furniture and all of the latest technology including large HD TVs. Additional power outlets provide corporate executives and family travelers more options for use of multiple personal electronics. A glass-topped desk on wheels provides guests with a flexible tabletop space for wherever and whatever the need.
Blending an artistic combination of whites, blues and grays, the design was created to provide a tasteful ambiance that appeals to adults while abstract artwork delights children as well.
The centerpiece of the room is the famous Westin Heavenly Bed with its all-white custom-designed pillow-top mattress set, down blanket, a trio of sheets, goose down comforter and four over-stuffed pillows. The design continues into a completely new bathroom, featuring residential style vanities and a back lit mirror on iridescent glass tiles.
“This new room product provides our guests with their own personal oasis,” said General Manager Fred Sawyers. “Whether visiting for business or leisure, it’s the ideal space to relax and reenergize.”
The hotel’s public spaces, restaurants, meeting rooms, shops, pools and recreational areas will not be impacted and remain fully operational throughout the renovation.
The entire rooms project is currently scheduled for completion by the end of 2017.
