The tower placement allows for higher ceilings over both the
conference side and the spa side as well as providing great views to
the surrounding areas.
Current tower design. Has approximately 1700 rooms. (I still have to
add the doors, bathrooms, windows and floors to this section)
The top floor is floor 29. The yellow portion I plan on making the larger
condo type suits, While the red section on the towers houses 6 larger
rooms than in the wings. The circular tower houses 12 rooms per floor
and is also home to 4 main elevators and 2 service elevators. The 6
rooms on the very top floor will be the more expensive presidential type
suites or possibly the owners living quarters. The blue strip down the
middle of the wings is covering a set of emergency stairs that also go
back down the lower side. I may include another restaurant on the very
top floor as well. each color show represents a different room style with
the exception of the purple room halfway down the upward slops, I’m
not really sure what I marked that one for. The red level was just to
mark the middle segment that connects the side towers. as it also had
a slightly different design.
Main Floor Overview
These next two slides show the overview of
the entire first floor. The footprint of the
hotel is approx . 13 acres. People have
mentioned that this design looks a lot like
an alien. But the design will more than
likely change when I redesign the
conference side of the hotel. Included in
the design are spaces for several bars, or
restaurants, plenty of meeting areas for a
large variety of needs and recreational
areas to accommodate guest of all ages.
These views are close ups of the spa, daycare and office area.
The spa has men's and women's massage rooms, saunas,
therapeutic baths (which may change), lounges, and sport shops.
The large round circles with the smaller circles in the middle, was
originally intended to be hot tubes and baths for separate genders. But
I then thought that those kind of things are typically enjoyed by couples,
so I may keep one and change the other into something else, or just
have two identical sets of pools and baths.
There are 6 racquetball/ squash courts and an Olympic size indoor pool
The upper gym will have possible 12 lane bowling alley, 2 aerobic
rooms, and a 22,000 sq ft work out area
Left of the spa is the daycare center and on the right has a teen
The center part will host the lobby and probably a restaurant and shops
but it's not completed yet.
This is the upper level of the spa which is a 22,000 Sq Ft workout area to meet the
physical needs of the resort guest. The top portion is home to the cardio equipment
while the empty space to the right and left will be home to the strength training
equipment. The two circular rooms in the middle are the gym's offices that overlook the
pool area below.
The lower half of the second floor is home to two large aerobic rooms as well as a 12
lane bowling alley. Also shown are a first aid office, a seminar room, and 2 sets of
bathrooms. There are also two elevators shown to allow for handicapped people to also
access the facilities.
This shows the six racquetball courts in the hotel. Between these courts is a juice bar to
provide energy drinks and other beverages to the guest while they are in the spa.
This view of the spa is the entrance and has identical features on both sides specific for
men or women. Each side includes, a steam room and sauna, a hair care salon, a sports
shop, a lounge, 12 massage therapy rooms, and a locker room with showers and a
changing area. The massage room layout may be changed as well to include couple
This is the teen recreation center designed for young adults who are not interested in the spa or other
activities in the resort. From the check in area there is a place to store personal belongings. Above that
are the bathrooms, and then two sitting areas to watch TV. To the right of all of that, are two seating areas
for people just to sit and hang out, or to enjoy a non alcoholic drink or snack from the bar. Also shown is
an area for pool, darts, and table tennis as well as an arcade gaming area. And for those who like to
dance, there is a designated party spot that may host a DJ or live music. In addition, but not shown, there
is a full size basketball court available to use for those interested in sports.
This side of the spa area is home to the in house daycare center. From the check in desk, there are
cubbies for kids to place their belongings. Above that are areas for toys, and children's books for those
who like to read. To the left, is the arts and crafts section, and in the middle is an area for more toys and
for puzzles and games. Also in this design is a place for napping, as well as a designated infant napping
and play area. In addition, but not shown, an enclosed and supervised outdoor play area is available for
kids to play and have fun in the warmer weather.
This is the view of the check in desk as well as the beginning of the first floor offices. As you can
see, there are many check in stations to provide quick service to guest if the resort gets busy. This
plan also features a safe deposit room, with two privacy rooms. On the left side, is the secretaries
desk to serve the customers who come into the waiting room, while the right side is home to the
Front Office Manager and work area.
The central section of the offices is home to the reservation department, telephone
opperators, resort cashier and safe, the computer control room and several other
This section shows the section devoted to the accounting work area, a vending area
next to the stairs to the second floor, and the payroll manager. Shown on the outside of
these offices are a coffee shop and gift shop for resort guest as well as public restrooms.
The second floor of offices is home to the upper management for the resort. This
includes, the general mgr, executive assistant mgr, food and beverage mgr, and resident
mgr. Central to these offices is a conference room for resort meetings as well as a copy
center central to the secretaries.
The lower half of the offices is home to the Directors of Sales and Public relations as
well as managers for catering, beverages, and banquets. There are also offices for 3
concierges', and plenty of space for the sales representatives. A glass enclosed atrium is
in the middle to look down on the floor below.
Shown in the next few slides are the 5000 seat
theater that can be divided up into 4 different size
auditoriums depending on the needs of the group
renting it. Each section is designed in such a way to
provide a stage size appropriate to the type of
presentation being given such as a concert or a
Also shown is the second floor of the conference
rooms which will probably change to make better use
of the space, as well as a space for another
restaurant between the offices and theater.
2 banquet/ conference wings will also be designed to
provide excellent space for meeting needs. Designs
shown will likely be redesigned to create more
options and functionality.
This is the layout of the central tower's two room designs. In the middle are four guest
elevators and 2 service elevators. The three emergency staircases are surrounding the
The upper floor will have 6 large suites (in cyan) that overlap the wings mixed between
three other rooms that will take the space of the two rooms found on other floors (not
shown). The blue strip you see going down the side of the wing covers the emergency
stairs that follow the slant of the wing.
This shows how the staircase is designed so that guest may quickly enter through the closest
visible door and immediately descend down the stairs, and when they exit they can push through
the right door and go around the corridor to the desired floor. I feel this is efficient because it
enables guest to simply push open a door while entering or exiting, and in the case of a fire, the last
door on the bottom floor will open into a quick escape route.
This shows the 3 larger style rooms on the wing support towers. Each support tower has
2 sets of emergency stairs as well as two guest elevators and one service elevator. The
cyan side will be enclosed in a glass facade more than likely to look out over toward the
This is the 16th floor that connects the wings to the wing support towers. The design of
this staircase is slightly different due to the change in floor design, the cyan areas
connecting the sections will simply be a guest lounge area.
The rooms before the lounge are also a bit bigger than the regular rooms and are for
guest who require a bit more space in their travels.
