Four Points Sheraton Inn

Homewood, AL

The remodel of the Sheraton Hotel was done here in Homewood, AL. It was originally a Holiday Inn, and only took us two days to transform the outside to what it is today.  The hotel front door stayed open and  accessible to guests and there were no interruptions in their everyday operations.
