The hotel’s multi-million make-over is scheduled to be completed by April 2012.

said Sean Verney, General Manager of the Sheraton Parsippany Hotel.  “Sheraton Parsippany will soon feature fully renovated guestrooms, a new Club Lounge experience and more – all designed to create community and help guests make connections.”

The social space will feature contemporary furnishings, updated décor and enhanced lighting perfect for business travelers looking to utilize the free WiFi in a casual work environment or leisure guests searching for a relaxed setting to socialize.

The hotel’s newly redesigned guest rooms portray a sense of occasion and heritage by utilizing rich, warm color palettes with pops of accent colors and chrome hardware.  The hotel’s new guestroom interiors – from the fully upholstered headboards to the residential lounge chairs – were designed to be warm and welcoming with a decidedly upscale look and feel.  Rooms will feature the all-white Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Bed, designed using the AAA Five Diamond Award® criteria, flat-screen televisions, WiFi access, in-room coffee makers with Starbucks® coffee and new energy-efficient heating and cooling units. Club Floor guests and Starwood Platinum members will also enjoy access to a reconfigured, upscale and vibrant Club Lounge now available seven days a week.

In conjunction with the brand’s recent $120 million investment in enhancing its fitness offerings around the world, the Sheraton Parsippany now features a new Sheraton Fitness programmed by Core Performance fitness center – the revolutionary new health and fitness program designed exclusively for Sheraton guests. This 20,000 square foot facility also offers indoor and outdoor pools, racquetball and a full array of spa services.
