The Sheraton Framingham Hotel & Conference Center, a 375-room hotel with a castle-like silhouette that is located near the Massachusetts Turnpike, is getting an $8 million renovation just in time for its 40th birthday.
“A soothing color palate of blue and grey” will grace the new lobby, guest corridors, and general public space, according to Hager and Associates Inc., the interior design firm working on the project.
“The improved design will embrace the favorite, traditional elements of the castle-inspired hotel while incorporating modern features that create a functional and contemporary environment,” Doris Hager of Hager and Associates said in a statement.
The grand ballroom is receiving updated touches of soft greys and neutrals.
With 18-foot-high ceilings, it offers the most expansive dance floor in the region, accommodating up to 1,200 people, noted Thomas McKenney, the hotel’s general manager.
The renovations are expected to be finished within the next few weeks.
Sheraton, a global brand of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc., operates more than 400 hotels in 70 countries; it recently completed a $6 billion global revitalization and is now in the midst of a $6 billion global expansion over the next three years.
