This 210-room six-story hotel is located in the Burbank Center Plan – an economic revitalization zone in the city’s downtown core. TSM designed the project from its initial concept and then successfully obtained city approvals. The hotel features a restaurant/ lounge, central pool/ spa terrace and fitness center with two levels of subterranean parking. Designed to compliment the aesthetic character of the surrounding urban context, the Hilton Garden Inn features a horizontally patterned stone base and powerful vertical massing elements above. Beveled shadowboxes accent various facades while providing sun protection. Signified by a soaring angled awning element, the lobby entrance features a stone “water wall”.
