Local hotel undergoes extensive renovations in time for Masters Week

Major renovations of a local extended-stay hotel will be completed by Masters Week, according to Betty Carter.

Carter, General Manager of Candlewood Suites located at 1080 Claussen Road in Augusta, said many parts of the hotel, including the lobby, front desk, guest rooms, fitness center, and gazebo, have been remodeled.

“We have a new parking lot, business center, hallway lighting, furniture, kitchen cabinets, and security with door locks and cameras,” she said.

The total price tag for these renovations, which began last year, is approximately $1.25 million. Carter said so far, guests have been impressed by the changes.

Guest rooms, the lobby, and other areas of the hotel were part of the extensive renovation project.

“It’s very sleek and modern, and the younger generation really likes it,” she said.

Candlewood Suites Augusta is a franchise of IHG Hotels & Resorts, which also operates other popular hotel chains, such as Crowne Plaza, Staybridge Suites, and Holiday Inn.

Carter said while Candlewood will accept short-term guests, it’s primarily intended for guests who plan to stay a week or longer.

“The longer you stay, the less you pay,” she said.

The Fitness Center was one of the many areas to be remodeled.

The hotel offers several amenities, including weekly housekeeping, as well as free parking, internet, and laundry.
