LANSDOWNE RESORT TO LAUNCH MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR TRANSFORMATION
Posted January 19, 2016
Esteemed Northern Virginia Resort to Unveil New Designs for Suites, Guestrooms and More
Leesburg, VA (January 19, 2016) – Lansdowne Resort, A Destination Hotel announces a multi-million-dollar renovation, repositioning the renowned 476-acre Loudoun County property into a sophisticated-yet-approachable retreat that will appeal to past guests as well as new groups of discerning travelers. Just in time to commemorate Lansdowne’s 25th anniversary, the expansive renovation will feature a complete redesign of the resort’s 296 guestrooms, including signature suites and the Presidential Suite; coupled with extensive resources and training dedicated to elevating guest service levels. The inspiration behind the redesign was derived from Lansdowne’s captivating natural surroundings that serve as the gateway into the Virginia Wine Country. The guestroom redesign will be completed in spring 2016, further establishing Lansdowne as the ideal destination of choice for romantic getaways, weddings, corporate and association conferences and retreats, golf outings, business travelers, as well as families. Like all properties in the Destination Hotels collection, Lansdowne offers authentically-immersed experiences that are true to its place.

Lansdowne will focus on enhancing all 296 guestrooms and suites, including upscale amenities, with the “Wine Country Lifestyle” state of mind entwined in the design aesthetics. In partnership with nationally-acclaimed MONOGRAM Hospitality Interiors, the color palette of the new guestrooms will coincide with the picturesque views of the expansive estate, with soft, earth-toned colors capturing the essence of wine country. The new rooms and suites will feature textured fabrics and clean-lined furnishings to provide a residential ambiance. Furniture and décor will pay homage to Northern Virginia’s wine country, with bar carts employed as mini bars, ‘wine cask’ nightstands, and glasses made from recycled wine bottles. The wine aesthetic will also be implemented into the guestroom artwork, with images depicting the beautiful grounds, farm fields and natural landscape ensconced in frames made from wine corks. All of the guestrooms will be equipped with the latest technology for travelers looking to mix business with pleasure.

The 1,000 square foot Presidential Suite will embody a tranquil and calming blend of hues and textures that reflect the resort’s natural surroundings. To complement the residential country aesthetic, the finishes will incorporate residential touches such as hard wood flooring, custom handmade area rugs and upgraded finishes and fabrics. Technology will be upgraded to include 55" LCD screens appropriate for relaxation and as a digital resource for private business conferences. The bridal experience will also be enhanced by incorporating a dressing table and full length mirrors into the guestroom to facilitate preparation for the big day.

“The renovations to Lansdowne will not only elevate the guest experience, but will bring a modern, refined look to the property,” said Skip James, Director of Sales & Marketing, Lansdowne Resort. “These exciting enhancements will further solidify our stature as a leading luxury resort in Northern Virginia.”

Lansdowne is nationally renowned for its premium amenities, including 45 holes of championship golf, a full-service luxury spa, five swimming pools, a state-of-the-art health and fitness center and a multitude of dining options located throughout the property. The resort is recognized as a Mid-Atlantic premier conference destination with over 55,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, including 37 centrally organized meeting rooms, a 9,525 square foot Grand Ballroom, a 3,293 square foot Terrace Ballroom, and a 126-seat amphitheater. More renovation news to be revealed in the coming months, reconfirming Lansdowne’s reputation as one of the most sought out destinations in the D.C. Metropolitan area.
