Willard InterContinental Washington Grand Ballroom, pre-renovation

Title

Willard InterContinental Washington Grand Ballroom, pre-renovation

Description

View of the Willard's Grand Ballroom before the renovation took place. There are over 7,000 square feet of marble floors on the ground level of the hotel. Over one and a half million ¾ inch square pieces were refitted, some lifted out, cleaned and shaped and others added from newly cut marble. Renovators searched old quarries in Sienna, Italy to find stone with the best color match.
