R.D. Olson Construction Renovates Popular Irvine Hotel
January 6, 2009
IRVINE, Calif.— R.D. Olson Construction, a leading builder of California hotels and resorts, has completed renovating the Marriott Residence Inn, Irvine at 2855 Main St.
R.D. Olson Construction built the original structure in 2001. Now, featuring innovative contemporary design elements, the construction company has implemented a new Marriott prototype called innFusion.
Marriott Residence Inn, Irvine is an eight-story hotel housing 174 all-inclusive rooms. Each suite offers a living space, kitchenette and bath. The renovation, designed by Leo A. Daly of Dallas, Texas, provides the hotel with enriched contemporary style and comfort, and the latest technology. Top-of-the-line Serta mattresses padded with feathery pillow tops and covered with attractive duvets, new shaker-style cabinets, granite countertops, tile flooring and gold carpeting that complements the new furnishings, give rise to the luxury this hotel now offers. Large LCD flat screen televisions, soft lighting and artwork that bodes well with the Orange County culture is a mix that makes this hotel distinctly different, while offering all the comforts of home.
“Our intent was to renovate the hotel so people feel welcomed and relaxed,” said Lofton Moore, president, R.D. Olson Construction. “With the hotel being located within Irvine’s business district, it’s important to meet the ever-changing needs and expectations of its guests.”
Marriott Residence Inn is owned by Irvine-based Main Street Hotels.
