Norwalk's historic LaKota Oaks hotel has completed a comprehensive plan for interior design and technological renovations by Norwalk-based architectural and interior design firm, Bavier Design, LLC.

The 66-acre hotel and conference center boasts 1.6 miles of trails, 123 guestrooms which have undergone head-to-toe renovations, and amenities including a fitness center, a four-lane indoor lap pool, indoor and outdoor athletic courts and onsite restaurants. LaKota Oaks also recently appointed Christine Imbrogno as director of sales and marketing to help promote the new renovations.

Dedicated and flexible spaces allow for productive meetings in a state-of-the-art learning center that is perfect for board meetings, conferences, corporate retreats and team-building events. Top-of-the-market guestrooms, amenities and a new and expanded ballroom not only offer flexible space for conferences, but also the ability to accommodate events such as weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and other special occasions.
