McMillan Pazdan Smith has proficiency and proven experience with creating memorable moments and unforgettable experiences for a variety of client needs and unique challenges. Our designers have produced world-class, one-of-a-kind resort hotels for venues such as the Cloister at Sea Island, the Dewberry Hotel in Charleston, the Lodge at Lake Lure and the Hotel Commonwealth in Boston. Melding creativity and brand development with local culture and amenities, the firm’s architects and designers have created grand hotels for brands such as Ritz Carlton, Hyatt, Hilton, Hard Rock, Westin, Sheraton, Aloft and Mandarin Oriental.

In conjunction with a rich history of designing for both national restaurant chains and creating local, original dining destinations, our designers bring life to each client’s vision with a functional understanding of the programmatic requirements and processes of hospitality and back-of-house support space. McMillan Pazdan Smith knows how these facilities need to work and what they require to be economically viable. Recent commissions include hotels and resort communities, restaurants, clubhouses, meeting facilities and master planning of hospitality communities.
