Sandia Resort & Casino Interior Renovation

Albuquerque, NM

The award-winning Sandia Resort and Casino Hotel Renovation was a 70,000 sf three-phase project designed to highlight the client’s mantra: “close to home, far from ordinary.” It offers the perfect combination of escape, relaxation and luxury, incorporating elements of Southwestern Pueblo culture and history. The renovation, in collaboration with Looney & Associates Interior Design, involved the relocation of Starbuck’s coffee shop, the remodeling and expansion of the Council Room Restaurant and Bar, up-scale restaurant Bien Shur and a variety of enhancements to the hotel lobby and corridor, conference and pre-function spaces. The redesigned lobby and procession from the porte cochere to the registration desk address hotel and convention guest’s first impressions of the resort as a home away from home with the widened lobby and added seating clusters increasing views of the magnificent Sandia Mountains, and improving the overall guest experience.
