Renovations of Rooms, Public Areas, Meeting Spaces Completed at L'Auberge Del Mar, A destination Hotel

Vibrant New Guest Rooms, Meeting Spaces and Public Spaces Welcome Business Travelers

SAN DIEGO, CA. April 20, 2017 – L’Auberge Del Mar, A Destination Hotel, located in San Diego’s coastal North County region, has put the finishing touches on the renovations of its 121 guest rooms, public areas and meeting spaces, emerging with a fresh new contemporary look masterminded by renowned Los Angeles interior designer Barclay Butera.

According to Bob Harter, director of sales and marketing for L’Auberge Del Mar, “Our goal was to create a casual, beach-inspired ambiance that allows our business and meetings guests to unwind and revel in their surroundings. Our latest upgrades take a cue from the surf, sand and sun.”

The new designs, inspired by the hotel’s oceanfront location, have been redone with Butera’s characteristic modern beach flair – marked by clean, transitional “coastal chic” décor with fresh ocean blues and sea glass greens.

A centerpiece of the renovation is the more than 10, 000 square feet of indoor meeting space, encompassing two ballrooms with terraces and six distinct meeting rooms.

According to Butera, who first redid the resort in 2008, the refurbished meeting areas are now in coastal blues, soft greens and crisp white. “We brightened and freshened up the décor while maintaining its existing look and feel.” Other meeting space renovation highlights:

· New glamourous light fixtures that offer a modern take on traditional chandeliers with hanging crystals that form circular, razor-shaped edges toward the center

· Custom golden hued, pebble motif carpeting is rich in pattern and texture and complements a variety of event décor

· Custom Barclay Butera wallcovering with a modern geometric design in neutral cream tones

· Large custom mirrors that add light, depth and drama

The meeting spaces and ballrooms connect to the overall hotel design, the newly redone rooms and public areas. Guestrooms and suites sport a calming backdrop of crisp whites and subdued neutrals accented by ocean blue, sea glass greens and soft sand hues setting the stage for layered details and textures such as infused damask prints, classic striped wallpaper and handsome stripe-style Oxford carpeting. Contemporary furnishings, bold modern artwork, bright white wood cabinetry and crystal lighting enhance the serene setting. Subtle geometric accents boost visual interest, while dark wood furnishings ground each room. Oversized accent pillows provide bold pops of color and pattern while natural fine touches such as seashells and coral further the surf feel.

The end result, said Butera are “comfortable and appealing spaces that ooze west coast chic.”

The renovations come on the heels of a recently announced partnership with acclaimed artist Aaron Chang, a photographer known for his colorful and dynamic surf and ocean images who is showcasing some of his most compelling works throughout the resort. Furthering the resort’s beachy appeal is a new live TV feed of the Pacific Ocean, which welcomes guests and anchors the lobby’s front desk area.

Mobile Technology: Relentless Innovation

Technology has become a crucial component in attracting and retaining hotel guests, and the need to enhance a guest’s technology experience is driving a relentless pace of innovation. To meet and exceed guest expectations, 54% of hotels will spend more on technology in 2018, and mobile solutions in particular will top the list of capital investments. Many hotels are integrating mobile booking, mobile keys, mobile payments and mobile check-in into their operations. Other hotels are emphasizing the in-room experience, boosting bandwidth and upgrading flat screen TVs to more easily interface with guest mobile devices. And though not yet mainstream, there are many exciting technology developments on the near horizon. The Internet of Things (loT) is taking form in some places, and can be found in guest room control systems, voice activation systems, and in wearable sensors that can be used for access and payment options. Virtual reality headsets are available at some hotels so guests can enjoy virtual trips to exotic locations or if off-property, preview conference facilities and guest rooms. How long will it be before a hotel employs a fleet of robots for room service, or utilizes a hologram as a concierge, or installs gesture-controlled walls that feature interactive digital displays? Some hotels are already using augmented reality for translation services, or interactive wall maps, or even virtual décor. This pace of innovation is challenging property owners and brands to stay on top of the latest technology trends while still addressing current projects. The January Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in the mobile technology space.
