Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort & Club Launches $30 Million Property Refresh

USA, Dana Point, California. October 11, 2022

The award-winning AAA Five-Diamond Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort & Club has announced a $30 million guest room refresh of its 400-guest rooms and suites.

"Following the property's addition to the Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts portfolio last year, we are excited to reimagine our room product and deliver a refreshed resort experience for our guests in the heart of Southern California," said George Munz, general manager, Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort & Club. "We look forward to building upon the brand's commitment to offering an exceptional and unforgettable experience for our guests, local community and club members with our thoughtfully-redesigned accommodations reflective of all that this iconic coastal destination has to offer."

"From the resort refresh to Dana Point's forthcoming Harbor Revitalization Plan, this thriving destination is entering a new era of growth," said James Cole, partner at Ohana Real Estate Investors. "We remain invested in strengthening the local economy - while preserving the character that makes Dana Point a sought-after California beach community."

Concept and Inspiration

Inspired by the relaxed charm of the resort's sun-splashed Southern California destination, the design narrative balances an approachable aesthetic with unapologetic attitude. Mingling the region's Spanish Colonial influences with artistic exuberance, the stately resort is reminiscent of a sprawling seaside hacienda. Design updates nod to local history and the Pacific Ocean itself with a coastal color palette, natural finishes, and curated collections of art. The redesign is in partnership with award-winning Whitespace Interiors, a Chicago-based design firm.

Redesigned Guest Rooms

Each of the resort's 400 guest rooms and suites will receive new flooring, furnishing and finishes reflecting the reimagined design concept. Other enhancements include upgraded fire boxes for Fireside Terrace Rooms. These 77 ground-level guest rooms and suites boast a private fire pit and enchanting views of the resort, golf fairway or ocean - perfect for roasting s'mores or enjoying cool Orange County evenings.

Renovated Suites

The resort will convert 20 of its Studio Suites to one-bedroom suites, including the expansion of a spacious living room separate from the bedroom, plus a private terrace. These Deluxe One-Bedroom Suites are ideal for solo or "work from anywhere" travelers seeking a luxurious Southern California getaway.

Hotel Law: Legal Consequences

The pandemic provoked more than a global health crisis. It also disrupted world economies, financial markets and social systems on a massive scale. Naturally, there are legal consequences associated with this kind of severe business disruption and the issues will be litigated for years to come. In the hotel industry, there are several issues that are currently germane. One issue pertains to the legal obligations hotels have to re-hire employees who were laid off due to the pandemic. Lawsuits have been filed by former employees who claim that certain promises were made to them when they were furloughed, and they are suing hotels for breach of implied contract. Another major issue involves hotels suing their insurance companies for failing to cover their business losses due to the pandemic. Still other hotels have brought lawsuits against local governments for the strict restrictions that were placed on their businesses, chiefly restaurants and bars. These are just a few of the legal issues that will be addressed in the December issue of the Hotel Business Review.
