Florida's Boca Raton Resort & Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, Completes
Redesign of the 242 Guest Rooms and Suites in its 27-story Tower

May 9, 2012 - Boca Raton, Florida
- Boca Raton Resort & Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, has completed upgrades to its contemporary 27-story Tower overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway, with panoramic views of the golf course and the Atlantic Ocean.

Interior designer Jane Dillon of Jane Dillon Design Group, oversaw the redesign of the 242 Tower guest rooms and suites. An estimated $4 million in renovations were completed at the end of 2011.

The new design features a light color palette in shades of Sail White, Sand Beige and Summer Sky Blue combination. The new carpets and coloration recall the classic, geometric pattern reminiscent of British designer David Hicks. The windows are covered in a gauzy, white sheer veiling that is easily pulled back to see the spectacular views. The guest beds are the focal point of the room with upholstered headboards; pure white triple sheeted bed linens and white duvet cover complete the 'luxe' Waldorf Astoria experience. The sitting area in the room has two club chairs, upholstered in a 'signature' awning stripe in Sail White and Sand Beige colors. The room features a table-style desk with an ergonomic swival chair to meet the guest's varied task needs. The bathroom and dressing room feature Creme Marfil marble floors and counter tops; Kohler fixtures in bright chrome and pure white robes, towels and accessories create a fresh, crisp, personal space.


The Tower features 76 Junior Suites and 14 additional Suites including two Tower Executive Suites and the stately Presidential. Guestrooms cater to personal preferences by offering options in size, ambiance, design and rate.
