The Graylyn International Conference Center Begins Renovations of the Mews

The Graylyn International Conference Center Begins Renovations of the Mews
The historic Graylyn International Conference Center, which has played host to presidents, world leaders and entertainers, is regarded as one of North Carolina's most unique executive meeting venues. Now, this 55 acre landmark destination is undergoing an extensive renovation to its Mews area guestrooms and conference space, in a design that will perfectly blend the site's French historical details with the modern technologies and comforts that today's executive guests require.

The renovation will transform the existing 45 guestrooms into 35 new, luxurious rooms complete with suite options - including two-story suites! The gracious design will be replete with lush bedding, rich tones, and sepia-toned framed photographs of Winston Salem's most cherished landmarks to emphasize the estate's historic charm. Each guest room will include state-of-the-art convenience in the form of flat screen LED televisions and WiFi connectivity. Not to be outdone, the Mews Conference Room and breakout spaces are also included in this renovation, and promise to be incredible.

"In redesigning the Mews, it was extremely important to understand the delicate balance between historic elements and modern comforts. We’ll be injecting new life into this area with everything from a new design to an overhaul in technology" said John Wise, Assistant Vice President of Hospitality Services at Wake Forest University. “We are extremely proud of the look and feel that this renovation will bring to the estate. The enhancements to the Mews reinforce Wake Forest University’s ongoing commitment and investment to keep this historical estate’s premier status as a distraction free meeting destination and the social address of Winston-Salem."

Once the renovation is complete, the Graylyn Estate will offer “The Mews Enclave Package” option, which provides exclusive use of the Mews guestrooms, conference, breakout and dining space.

The Graylyn Estate will remain open during the renovation, hosting meetings and events within the Manor House, Management House and Bernard Cottage. The renovation is expected to be completed by April 2012, and you can follow the progress on Graylyn's “Mews News” blog.
