Hotel Maya Completes $4 Million Property Refresh Just In Time For Summer
From Complete Guest Room Enhancements To New Event Space Creations, Get Ready to Rediscover Hotel Maya
LONG BEACH, CA. June 18, 2015 - If you were a fan of Hotel Maya before, you're going to love it even more following a newly completed $4 million refresh.
Improvements include updated, modern guest room enhancements and the addition of a brand-new event pavilion and terrace located at the water's edge; a combined 16,400-square-feet, the “Lagunita” pavilion and “Vista del Mar” are unlike any other event spaces in Southern California.
Hotel Maya underwent a $20 million renovation in 2009 and became a Doubletree by Hilton hotel on November 1, 2010.
A popular staycation and celebration destination, the boutique, resort-style property offers a Latin-American inspired design, presenting guests with a distinctively Southern California combination of stunning seaside views amidst 14 acres of lush, tropical gardens filled with over 500 palm trees in a modern, open-air, setting.
The 199-room Hotel Maya completely transformed its guest rooms by installing new, custom hardwood floors for a sleek, modern, coastal feel. Each guest room entry door was replaced with an exquisitely hand-carved wood door similar to the signature, oversized door that welcomes guests at the hotel's lobby entrance, as well as on meeting and event spaces throughout the property. New floor-to-ceiling retractable sliding glass doors lead to water view and garden view patios and balconies, offering an expansive indoor/outdoor living space evoking a tropical resort. Air conditioning systems were exchanged for sleeker, quieter, more energy-efficient units.
“The renovated guests rooms are a perfect complement to the new Lagunita and Vista del Mar events spaces, which creates a unique architectural synergy,” said Kristi Allen, Vice President of Hotel Operations at Hotel Maya - a DoubleTree by Hilton. “We are always evaluating the needs of the market and our clients as well as listening to guests' feedback to further improve our ever-popular property.”
In addition to the new guest room renovations, guests staying at Hotel Maya will enjoy well-appointed rooms with dynamic colors, complemented with earthy, organic furnishings and finishes; specially designed plush pillow, mattress and high thread-count linens; private balconies with ocean and garden views; private waterfront dock where guests can enjoy seasonal amenities, concierge; bicycle rental; fitness center; Latin Inspired outdoor waterfront heated lap pool and Jacuzzi with private cabanas; and a walking path.
The “Lagunita” pavilion, named for an ancient Mayan city, is an 80 feet by 80 feet event venue with a cathedral-style ceiling that perfectly frames four glistening, oversized chandeliers and is accentuated by two, 13 feet tall, floor-to-ceiling glass walls that open to the panoramic views of the waterfront and city. Lagunita can host 600 guests for standing receptions, 400 guests with a dance floor, and seat guests up to 450 in rounds and 350 for classroom-style.
To enter “Lagunita,” guests pass through “Vista del Mar” a 10,000-square-feet, pre-function, outdoor area with a VIP entranceway featuring 9-foot-tall, hand-carved wood doors, eight towering palm trees, a permanent outdoor stage, compelling water and fire display, beautiful drought-tolerant foliage, along with custom outdoor furniture, rock-faced fire pit, alfresco bar and open-air reception area. Vista del Mar can host 700 guests for a standing reception and up to 350 guests in rounds. A perfect fit for black-tie galas, convention receptions, holiday parties, product launches, meetings & weddings, these two spaces can be transformed over and over again.
