Today, Grandover Resort & Spa unveiled more than $10 million in renovations and a renewed vision for the acclaimed destination. The core goals of the renovations include highlighting Greensboro’s rich history and culture and strengthening the resort’s connection to the community.
“When Joseph Koury planned Grandover over 20 years ago, it was his dream to give the people of Guilford County a world class resort at their doorstep, a place where everyone felt welcomed” said Kelly Harrill, Grandover Resort General Manager. “The new era we’re embarking on is in many ways a return to that spirit and our guests will see that reflected physically and philosophically when they visit.”
Local history has been woven into the renovations, in some cases quite literally. Guests at 19 & Timber, one of the resorts two remodeled bars, can listen to live music, sip a cocktail with friends, and read about how textile magnates, Moses and Ceasar Cone, made Greensboro the largest manufacturer of textiles in the world. While the original split timber walls of the bar are adorned with canvases featuring old photos of Greensboro’s historical past, leather chairs and upscale lighting give the rustic space a modern feel. In addition to the resort’s 244 newly renovated rooms, Grandover’s five luxury suites pay homage to the Industries, Arts and People that have made Greensboro and the Triad what it is today. A renewed sense of modern sophistication was brought to the main lobby and front desk, as well as the elegantly remodeled restaurants, pool and spa. Guests can enjoy original art by North Carolina artists throughout the hotel with the addition of The Gallery at Grandover. Golfers will also be excited to learn they’ll now be putting on TifEagle Bermuda grass on Grandover’s award-winning East golf course.
The list of renovations continues and more are underway. A third phase, which is scheduled to be completed by late 2019, will continue to keep Grandover’s 45,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, including its four ballrooms, at the forefront as a conference and event destination.
“We have a well-earned reputation as a premier destination in the state and the region,” Harrill said. A resort that offers world class amenities without the price tag to go along with it; that was Joe Koury’s vision for Grandover and we intend to keep that vision alive.”
To that end, Grandover also announced North Carolina resident golfers will receive special pricing and discounted rates with the establishment of the “Griffin Club”, a program that has been extremely well received by the over 1,400 new golfers who have joined the program to date.
“Koury Corporation continues to reinvest in our community,” Harrill said. “This is truly the best Grandover has ever been, and we hope all of our friends and neighbors will come out and enjoy it with us.”
Grandover Resort & Spa will host an Open House on Sunday November 25 from 1pm - 4pm with tours, refreshments and a chance to win a stay in one of the luxury suites. No reservations are required, tours begin in the main lobby every 30 minutes. You can also stay up to date with all that’s happening at the resort by following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
