Urban Commons Completes Two-Year Multi-Million Dollar Renovation of 311-Room Sheraton Pasadena Hotel
The Sheraton Pasadena Hotel has completed a two-year multi-million dollar renovation, it was announced today by Carlos Mendoza, General Manager. The hotel, which is adjacent to the Pasadena Convention Center, now offers the most recently renovated accommodations, public areas, and meeting space of any property within easy reach of the Convention Center campus. The property is owned by Urban Commons.
According to Mr. Mendoza, the comprehensive refurbishment project which was accomplished by Gensler Design and Luna Construction, entailed renovation of the entire 311-room hotel including all guest rooms and suites, all common areas, the restaurant, meeting space, and porte cochère. The spaces were all completely redone with new furniture, carpeting, wall coverings, lighting, case goods, etc. The design aesthetic creates a relaxed ambiance with comfortable furnishings in a soft color palette of blues and grays with orange accents.
The property's Restaurant Soleil has also been completely reimagined with a focus on natural, fresh cuisine providing hotel guests and local Pasadena residents alike with an opportunity to enjoy fresh, organic produce, cage-free eggs, pressed olive oil, non-GMO menu items, free range chicken, and grass-fed beef. The entirely redesigned menu is now under the direction of the hotel's new Executive Chef Frank Gutierrez, who was previously Executive Sous Chef.
