The Challenge
MCR is the seventh largest hotel owner-operator in the country and has invested in 92 hotel properties with over 9,800 rooms in 23 states. To mark a momentous transaction in this market space, Hodges Ward Elliott, sought to commemorate the event with a deal toy featuring all parties involved.

The Solution
Working in acrylic and polished silver metal, the Cristaux team began work in crystal but determined it was too heavy to mix with the metal. Cristaux’s production team ran rigorous testing and development to ensure the object would be stable enough. The result is a sleek and striking object worthy of the work done for the impressive deal.
