Newport Beach Welcomes the Highly Anticipated Lido House This March

Lido House Brings Sophisticated and Relaxed Coastal Ambience to the Heart of Newport Beach

Newport Beach, CA. January 31, 2018 -

Lido House, an Autograph Collection hotel, today announced a March 2018 opening. Nearing completion in Newport Beach, the resort is a stylish celebration of Southern California’s coastal lifestyle, delivering the ultimate, authentic beach house retreat.
A legacy project by local developer Robert D. Olson, Lido House is set on the site of the former City Hall and pays homage to the historic landmark. The 130-guest room resort set on 100,000 square feet, is just steps away from Lido Marina Village, the city’s marina, retail and dining hub. With its innovative culinary offerings and design features, Lido House will elevate the neighborhood’s standing a must visit destination.
With interior design by the EDG team, the property will come to life with an effortless sense of style and reflects a welcoming beach house vibe, reminiscent of Robert Olson’s own Newport Beach home. Truly embracing the home away from home concept, Lido House features five residential-style, three-level cottages spanning 1,300 square feet, including a rooftop patio, personal BBQ and fireplace. Each of the one-of-a-kind cottages feature a distinct and authentic design motif created by a different local designer: Grace Blu Design, Jennifer Mehditash Design, Brooke Wagner Designer, Erica Bryen Design and Blackband Design.
“At Lido House, nautical flair merges with Cape Cod-style architecture to capture the spirit, lifestyle and culture of the community,” said Olson. “As the nexus of beach, marina and town, Lido House will be the geographic and emotional heart of the city, and a true partner in the community. In every sense, Lido House is Newport Beach, a lively celebration of our beloved coastal retreat.”
Every element of the hotel comes together to establish Lido House as the new-old centerpiece of Newport Beach:
Culinary: Set to serve as Newport Beach’s new culinary hot spot, Lido House will offer a variety of distinct dining options to satisfy every craving and occasion. Mayor’s Table, the hotel’s signature restaurant, honor’s the sites City Hall roots and manifests a gastro pub-style vibe, offering inventive cocktails and seafood oriented fare including a raw bar, chef’s table and open action kitchen. Topside will serve as Lido House’s captivating rooftop bar – and the only rooftop bar in Newport Beach – with a playful yet chic scene featuring festive Champagne pairings, fine wines, cocktails and local brews. Crew Coffee + Cremerie offers up curated blends of coffee and classic ice creams, made with ingredients from around the globe and served up with a decadent twist.
Meetings and Events: Lido House will feature spaces and services for the most iconic Newport Beach celebrations – from weddings to corporate events - with 15,000 square feet of indoor / outdoor meeting and event space. An elegant ballroom is the center piece of 4,000 square feet of indoor meeting space, which also features a pre-function space and an executive board room. Three event lawns spanning a total of 11,000 square feet offer the ideal setting for many occasions, from intimate receptions to grand celebrations up to 500 guests.
Wellness: The ocean-inspired Boost Spa will be designed with optimal energy in mind. With four tranquil treatment rooms the spa will offer an array of botanically oriented treatments created to reinvigorate the mind and body. The 1,500-square foot spa includes a co-ed relaxation lounge, a retail boutique and a naturally-lit fitness facility with CrossFit style equipment.

Human Resources: Value Creation

Businesses must evolve to stay competitive and this is also true of employment positions within those organizations. In the hotel industry, for example, the role that HR professionals perform continues to broaden and expand. Today, they are generally responsible for five key areas - government compliance; payroll and benefits; employee acquisition and retention; training and development; and organizational structure and culture. In this enlarged capacity, HR professionals are no longer seen as part of an administrative cost center, but rather as a member of the leadership team that creates strategic value within their organization. HR professionals help to define company policies and plans; enact and enforce systems of accountability; and utilize definable metrics to measure and justify outcomes. Of course, there are always new issues for HR professionals to address. Though seemingly safe for the moment, will the Affordable Care Act ultimately be repealed and replaced and, if so, what will the ramifications be? There are issues pertaining to Millennials in the workforce and women in leadership roles, as well as determining the appropriate use of social media within the organization. There are new onboarding processes and e-learning training platforms to evaluate, in addition to keeping abreast of political issues like the minimum wage hike movement, or the re-evaluation of overtime rules. Finally, there are genuine immigration and deportation issues that affect HR professionals, especially if they are located in Dreamer Cities, or employ a workforce that could be adversely impacted by federal government policies. The March Hotel Business Review will take a look at some of the issues, strategies and techniques that HR professionals are employing to create and sustain value in their organization.
