Hilton Norfolk

DEFYING THE CUSTOM PRODUCT AND FINISH EXPERIENCE BY MAKING IT EASY AND WITHIN BUDGET

Overview

Hilton Hotels & Resorts, one of the most recognized names in the industry, is a global leader and mainstay in the world of hospitality. Known for its fresh and innovative approach to products, amenities and customer service, Hilton Hotels & Resorts is a stylish, forward-thinking thought leader focused on delivering the ultimate guest experience through smart design, avant-garde restaurant concepts and authentic hospitality. And the Hilton Norfolk The Main, an upscale landmark hotel in Norfolk’s vibrant downtown, is no exception. Situated in the heart of Norfolk’s iconic naval hub, The Main hotel’s contemporary style and luxurious accommodations are complemented by the sweeping views of the Elizabeth River and downtown skyline to create an unforgettable experience for guests and locals alike.

Challenge

The client sought a custom frosted glass barn door to separate the guest room from the bathroom as well as a glass sliding shower door – sounds simple enough, right? Wrong. With budget constraints limiting the designer’s options, Source Direct had to find a different solution – one that gave the appearance of a custom look at an off-the-shelf price point.
