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

. April 20, 2017

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” decor 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 decor 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 decor

· 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.

Food & Beverage: Millennials Rule

The Millennial Generation has surpassed the Baby Boomers to become the largest living generation in America, and their tastes and preferences are being reflected in the Food & Beverage industry. In general, Millennials insist on more natural, healthier, less-processed food and beverage sources, and in part, this inspired the farm-to-table movement. However, now the trend is becoming even more pronounced and hyper-local. Millennials no longer simply want to know their food is farm-to-table, they want to know which farm, and where it's located relative to the community. As a result, hotel F&B directors are redesigning entire menus to feature area brewers, wineries, and family farms. Not only is this a proven way to satisfy Millennial tastes but it also opens the door for hotel guests to enjoy immersive experiences such as tours and excursions to local farms and breweries. Also, thanks in no small part to Millennials, coffee consumption is at an all-time high. In response, F&B directors are creating innovative ways to enhance the coffee experience for guests. Nitro-brewed coffee, cold brew, lattes on draft, and the introduction of unique milk options are part of this trend, as are locally sourced coffee beans where available. Millennial influences can also be found in the Craft and Artisan Cocktail movement where the same preferences for locally sourced and high-quality ingredients apply. One leading hotel even offers a drink menu featuring liquors infused with herbs recommended by experts for their health and well-being benefits. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
