The massive Golf Resort is largest Marriott Hotel in the world. The exterior comprises of over 220,000 square feet of cream and gold split-face stone laid in random Ashler pattern. There are 68 large load bearing solid stone masonry arches located throughout the hotel entries. The exterior is also accented with over 20,000LF of cast stone bands, caps, and lintels.
There are seven all masonry fireplaces in the project. The hotel lobby is cladded in large Cordova cream limestone at the fireplaces, columns, arches, and elevator lobbies. One of the challenges that had to be overcome was maintaining consistent quality workmanship during an aggressive project schedule that required enormous man power.
