Construction Manager

Hope College’s rebranded “Haworth Hotel,” adjacent to downtown Holland, underwent a $9 million renovation that opened to the public in June 2021. The multi-phase transformational project included renovations to all conference and hotel rooms, rebuilding the lobby, and creating a full-service coffee shop and kitchen for students and the public.

The Haworth Inn and Conference Center evolves as a community resource and is a design destination in Holland. The space features:

  • Meeting and banquet facilities totaling more than 10,000 square feet and 13 conference rooms that can accommodate groups of up to 400;
  • 48 guestrooms featuring Haworth products;
  • A fitness facility for hotel guests;
  • Touchdown workspaces, as well as social spaces throughout the lobby;
  • A gift shop featuring Hope- and Holland-themed apparel and memorabilia;

The Haworth Inn and Conference Center, which faces College Avenue between 9th and 10th streets, opened 23 years ago and was crafted to serve as a bridge between the Hope campus and downtown Holland. This project was made possible through a gift from Haworth and has been led by Patricia Urquiola, an award-winning architect based in Milan, Italy.
