Marriott Mystic Hotel and Spa Completed

DiLeonardo celebrates New England heritage and local craftsmanship though the newly-renovated Marriott Mysic Hotel & Spa

Influenced by rich, New England history and the geography of Mystic, award-winning, hospitality interior design firm, DiLeonardo, completed a full renovation of Marriott Mystic Hotel’s guestrooms, lobby and bar.

The newly-renovated hotel welcomes travelers and explorers, both for business and pleasure, seeking sanctuary whist visiting this historic location; a destination for repose, education, craftsmanship and steeped in the history of the region. Travelers can be assured of a substantive, yet refined experience that captures the essence of the New England locality.

The DiLeonardo design team chose to expand beyond the expected. The inspiration for the design was driven by the process of Maritime craftsmanship, architectural vernacular and materials, embracing elements reflecting the history of the area.
Large public areas boast beautiful architectural elements that move the design out of the transitional and into the present. The interior architectural palette, including warm brass and black metals, with natural walnut details, neutral tones and naturally inspired colors tie the room together with a sense of place in Mystic, Connecticut.

The lobby lounge features a variety of flexible seating to cater to guests’ needs for small meetings at fully-equipped high tables or to sit back and relax comfortably near the fireplace.

The feature wall behind the reception desk expresses the design story through art. A hand-crafted plaster bas relief displays an abstracted interpretation of the characteristic dry-stone walls of the area, and in bronze glass the Mystic River waterways.

A fully redesigned bar, high top communal tables and inviting, social seating areas, evoke a light and airy feel grounded by surrounding warm wood tones.

In each guestroom, a custom headboard wall transports visitors to 18th century New England with an oversized vintage map of the area. Each room creates the feeling of deeply-rooted history with subtle color palettes and understated nautical motifs. Light and breezy neutrals invite guests to take a pause to take a breath of sea-salty air before heading to the spa.

Continuing the interior design story by DiLeonardo, the meeting rooms and function spaces will be completed by Summer 2019.
