ANF Architects designed the renovation and repurposing of the 21,000 SF historic Wittel Dormitory, originally a girl’s dormitory built in 1941, into a 41 Room boutique hotel. This adaptive reuse project, steeped in history, creates a sense of place, preserving the historic integrity of the building and incorporating reclaimed materials into the design.
In addition to 41 unique guestrooms, hotel amenities include: a historic lobby with a full service bar, a wraparound porch/balcony, and a rooftop terrace with extraordinary views equipped with a full service bar that doubles as a party venue.
The Collegiate Hotel in Auburn is adjacent to the Auburn University campus and enjoys spectacular views of the iconic Samford Hall.
