Resort at Squaw Creek, A Destination Hotel, to Debut Refreshed Lobby and Meetings & Event Spaces

Design Update Will Be Led by Chicago-Based Interior Design Firm Looney & Associates Design; Renovation to be Complete by Early 2019

LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (August, 2018) – Resort at Squaw Creek, A Destination Hotel, a luxury California resort with an idyllic mountain setting, is thrilled to announce the lobby and meetings and event spaces will undergo a $2 million design refresh over the coming months, with all work to be completed by January 2019.  Led by Chicago-based interior design firm, Looney & Associates, the lobby redesign will begin in late October and the meetings and event spaces will follow in November.  The forthcoming lobby and meeting space updates will add luxurious new details and enhanced lighting throughout the hotel.

“This refresh will bring a new level of relaxed modernity that will provide enhanced comfort and functionality for our guests,” said Andre Priemer, area managing director of Resort at Squaw Creek.  “Looney & Associates are planning to enhance the resort’s interior with a deft touch, blending rich materials and approachable modern forms to contrast and complement the rustic landscape.”

Resort at Squaw Creek’s forthcoming lobby and meetings and events spaces, will afford guests a sleek, contemporary space mixed with luxurious textures that accent the resort’s striking surroundings.  The new design will feature an updated warm, natural color palette, which is accented with deep, spruce blues and rich wood tones.  A variety of tailored furnishings with clean lines and refined finishes are grounded in a modern aesthetic, while maintaining an approachable, laid-back dynamic.  The new furniture layouts will offer areas for playing games, relaxing by the fire, and catching up with family and friends.  The lobby’s upcoming new design will provide a comfortably stylish destination to take in the rustic landscape and all the natural beauty the resort has to offer.

The new lobby design will also encompass an updated front desk, with an art installation inspired by the resort’s skiing prowess.  A delicately tiled white wall covered with hundreds of golden skier figurines barreling downwards, as if on the slopes of Squaw Valley, will create a visual highlight and added drama in the double-height space.

The renovations will embrace the resort’s expansive meetings and event spaces, with the Grand Sierra Ballroom and Alpine Ballroom, as well as the resort’s smaller meeting rooms, all receiving new flooring in deep spruce blue or charcoal grey, luxurious textured wall coverings, upgraded lighting design and new restrooms.  The pre-function spaces will also have updated modern furniture, feature wall coverings and new artwork.

Tucked into the base of the Squaw Valley ski area, the resort plays host to an incredible array of adventures, such as ski-in/ski-out access to Squaw Valley, cross country skiing, fly fishing, kayaking and golfing on a championship golf course.  Whether staying for leisure or business, Resort at Squaw Creek will introduce adventure seekers and professionals alike to the rich culture, history and magical landscape of Lake Tahoe.  The idyllic mountain setting forms the backdrop to the resort’s 405 luxurious resort rooms and suites, showcasing a "mountain meets modern" ambiance.  The six restaurants on site, each featuring its own distinct concept and menu, source the freshest produce, herbs and ingredients from its on-site hydroponic garden.
