Located southeast within the Metro Vancouver area, Surrey, British Columbia, is a city experiencing a time of transformation. Historically overshadowed by it’s neighbouring municipalities including Richmond, Burnaby, and Vancouver, Surrey is now a destination for businesses and new home owners due to its affordability and emergence as an urban centre and growth node within the lower mainland. This growth was a catalyst for the renovation of 279 guest rooms and corridors of the Sheraton Guildford which had not been updated since 2008.
The concept for the hotel was guided by the design philosophies of structure, refinement, distinguishability, urban elegance, and effortlessness. It was essential the design elevate the guest experience through particular attention to details such as geometry and form, creating a refined and timeless environment.
The guest rooms are outfitted in sophisticated, neutral tones, at once establishing a calming and inviting atmosphere. Greys, both muted and deep, warm tones of cream and sand, dark woods and unexpected pops of colour work together to create an urban ambiance and compliment the scenic mountain views of the surrounding area. Geometry is immediately identifiable throughout the design – from the chevron-patterned wallcoverings to the dramatic custom headboards and detailed carpeting. The eye is drawn around the room, where all elements work in unison without overpowering one another in this balanced design.
The new design of the Sheraton Guildford’s guest suites encompasses a structured sophistication that stays true to its evolving yet timeless brand.
