NEW YORK, Sept. 22, 2015 -- As part of a multi-million dollar investment program by Millennium Hotels and Resorts across many of its 14 North American properties, the hotel group has announced an extensive renovation plan for Millennium Hotel Durham

Beginning in Winter 2015 with a scheduled Spring 2016 completion date, the $10.8 Million project will entail renovations to all 316 guest rooms along with public spaces. Guest rooms will be fully upgraded with new furniture, carpeting and other soft goods while bathrooms will also see a total revamp. Changes to the rooms will result in a more modern look with accent walls complemented by softer lighting and dark woods evoking a warm feel. Public areas and the building exterior will also undergo a refresh with new carpeting, lighting and furniture. In a nod to the city's most notable institution, new wall artwork will depict scenes from Duke University campus.
