The Raleigh Hotel

Client(s): Hotels AB
Project Type: Hospitality
Services: Project Management, Owner's Representative

When the Raleigh Hotel wanted to restore its original, classic Art Deco look and feel, they engaged Claro Development as the owner's representative to project manage the design and construction of the project. This included returning the lobby to its original condition, renovation of the original front desk, sundry shop and bar lounge. The pool was also restored to its classic design, while the pool deck was landscaped into a luscious garden with a private beach. 

Claro's renovation of the guest rooms included an upgrade of all major mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, a complete bathroom finish upgrade, and room trimmings which included new wall finishes, furniture, and soft goods. The five-star restaurant's kitchen was also upgraded to meet the needs of the Raleigh's celebrity chef.

The entire renovation was completed, on budget, during the five-month off-season, while the hotel was in full operation - a strong testament to the effective collaboration between the Raleigh Hotel and Claro Development. Another indicator of the project's success was the number of guests who had visited the hotel during the renovation and then returned upon its grand completion.
