The newly renovated Pittsburgh Marriott North brings the dramatic and extravagant temperament of “the steel city” inside. Nearly unrecognizable from its prior aesthetic, the lobby and atrium remodel transformed this public space from an outdated jungle-like ambience, to the fresh and modern design it is today. Envisioned by Architect/Designer Winegardner & Hammons and executed by Continental Contractors, the impressive focal points of the property express every form and texture that steel can possess: molten, rigid, bent, smooth, rusted, even reflective.
If you’ve had the pleasure of working in the hospitality industry for any amount of time, you’ll recognize a consistent theme among the people who drive it: it feels like a family. A family full of funny, smart, thoughtful, welcoming people who do their best to BRING their best to the job every day. And, while the realities of the pandemic have made it harder to be there for each other in person, we’re doing our best to get our Continental branch of the family back to the face to face, in person connections that are the cornerstone of the hospitality industry.
