Earl Swensson Associates
The 2010 Traveler’s Choice Award winner was a $30.2 million total renovation of a 16-story, 220,000 sf office building into a contemporary, elegant, four-star hotel. Connected to the hotel stands a new five-story 105,000 sf cast-in-place, post-tensioned parking garage with a 20,000 sf ballroom on top. While the Hutton Hotel did not pursue LEED Certification, it was designed with many sustainable features such as a low albedo roof, a high efficiency mechanical energy recovery system, and EcoDisc elevators. The sophisticated and comfortable hotel features 248 rooms, including 54 suites, two luxurious penthouse apartments, and 13,600 sf of space perfect for meetings, events, and weddings.
