METTAWA, Ill. – January 30, 2014 – White Lodging Services is pleased to announce the 170-room Hilton Garden Inn Lake Forest/Mettawa completed its renovation of the lobby and restaurant areas.

Hilton Garden Inn Lake Forest/Mettawa now features elements of Project Grow, a major brand revitalization initiative, that includes upgrades to the property’s communal spaces, including the lobby and the guest reception area.

As part of the “Project Grow” initiative, the hotel updated carpet, wall vinyl, light fixtures and accent décor. Additionally, new and inviting seating areas were created.

“Our property’s recent lobby and restaurant renovation has created a more contemporary, open space offering a variety of seating options perfect for meeting with colleagues or gathering with family and friends,” said Jason Smith, general manager Hilton Garden Inn Lake Forest/Mettawa. “The space is designed to encourage our guests to spend more time in the area being productive or simply relaxing, which allows our team greater opportunity to interact with our guests. The renovation also included the introduction of the hotel’s new restaurant, the Garden Grille and Bar. Our redesigned menus and nightly specials provide a wide array of food and beverage options.”

Guests at the Hilton Garden Inn Lake Forest/Mettawa can start their day with a full cooked-to-order breakfast at the Garden Grille and Bar®, or end it in one of the brand’s signature beds featuring fresh, white duvets and crisp linens.
