It includes a new 25,000-square-foot ballroom and a sandstone-and-glass grand staircase. The interior features a subtle Native American graphic and indigenous materials such as granite.
Functional upgrades include integrated audio-visual equipment, updated electrical and mechanical systems as well as catering facilities. A convention hotel adjoins.
