Crowne Plaza®-Dallas Market Center Hotel Completes Multi-Million Dollar Renovation

FEB 28, 2019

DALLAS, Feb. 28, 2019 - Pacifica Host Hotels announces today that the newly-redesigned Crowne Plaza®-Dallas Market Center hotel has wrapped up its multi-million dollar renovation. The hotel's owner and operator has invested in the following renovations to its 21-story, 354-room property:

  • All guest rooms feature new furniture, mattresses, textiles, refrigerators and bathrooms, with 120 units featuring the WorkLife Room design - a patented and trademarked room design concept by Crowne Plaza® Hotels & Resorts.
  • Redesigned Bristol Bar & Grill debuts an open kitchen concept, stylish seating and a fresh, sleek ambiance. New menus include signature plates for every palate along with an extensive selection of regional craft beer, wine and spirits.
  • Exterior and interior lighting, including building signage, has been replaced with energy-efficient LED light fixtures.
  • Extensive enhancements to building exterior, elevators, landscaping, lobby, meeting space, pool and fitness center, thus reshaping nearly every aspect of the hotel.

"Big things are happening in Dallas," said Mark Peck, the hotel's general manager, echoing the city's tagline. "We're excited to keep this property fresh and relevant for today's business traveler. Our beautiful new upgrades, unique business-focused amenities and seamless service have shown to unleash productivity and transform the guest experience."

The hotel's new WorkLife guestrooms have been developed around the evolving needs of modern business travelers and their blended lifestyles, and feature a flexible environment with distinct zones that encourage guests to work, relax and recharge their way. Custom angled beds with cocooning headboards, premium Beautyrest® mattresses, plush linens and Sleep Advantage® aromatherapy kits support a calming environment and better night's sleep, while integrated LED lighting, ample electrical outlets and USB ports throughout the room mean guests are never more than an arm's length away from a charging station.

The hotel also now features revamped flexible work spaces and creative meeting solutions, with options ranging from intimate seating areas for small, informal gatherings to communal tables with plug-and-play screens for quick meetings. Intuitively designed and embedded with technology - including IHG® Connect, providing a seamless Internet experience for guests along with faster and more reliable Wi-Fi - these new areas are built specifically for the way people "on-the-go" instinctively want to work and be social.

Palm Springs' Legendary Movie Colony Hotel Re-opens Following Extensive Renovation

MAR 01, 2019

Boutique gem with starchitect pedigree returns to Indian Canyon's Hotel Row

Palm Springs, CA (March 2019) - Frank Sinatra partied here. Marilyn Monroe slept here. Jim Morrison jumped into the pool here - from his second-floor balcony! Now the legendary Movie Colony Hotel, which closed for renovations in 2015, is ready to write the latest chapter in its amazing history.

The 16-room property sits at the edge of Palm Springs' "Movie Colony" neighborhood, where Golden Age film stars like Cary Grant, Jack Benny, Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh once owned vacation homes. The neighborhood's many high walls, thick hedges and a lack of sidewalks are reminders of how the stars valued their privacy.

But the Movie Colony Hotel is also famous as the first hotel designed by master architect Albert Frey in 1935. For the devotees of architecture who flock to Palm Springs each year for Modernism Week, it's an important touchstone.

In renovating the property, it was important to keep the mid-century modern integrity of the Movie Colony Hotel. "The whole premise of revitalizing this property," says Paul Darrall of LA-based Darrall Design Consultants, "was to make necessary improvements so the hotel re-establishes itself as one of the keynote properties in the Desert."

To that end, Frey's celebrated design has been reimagined and enhanced to improve the guest experience. The architect's original two-story "townhouses" have been recast into duplex suites. Warm woods, splashes of color and comfortable sofas and chairs have been added throughout the public and guest areas. The sun-drenched pool area, with a fantastic view of the breathtaking San Jacinto mountains, has been enlivened by bright textile accents in yellow and white.

With such a pedigree, the Movie Colony Hotel is expected to be a favorite rendezvous for guests visiting Palm Springs for seasonal events like the International Film Festival (PSIFF), Modernism Week, Coachella, Stagecoach, Robolights and more.

Best of all, the Movie Colony Hotel is in the middle of Palm Springs' vibrant Uptown Design District, where visitors can find some of the city's trendiest restaurants, art galleries, shops and more - all within walking distance.

The Movie Colony Hotel features:

  • 16 guest rooms with pillowtop beds, in-room safes, Keurig® coffee makers and elegant plantation shutters. Most rooms have patios or balconies.
  • A central courtyard, where a complimentary continental breakfast bar of bagels, fresh seasonal fruit, juices and French-pressed coffee is served daily, and a patio bar opens each evening.
  • Restaurant, bar and room services from its sister property, the Triada Palm Springs, which is next door.

The Movie Colony Hotel is located at 726 N. Indian Canyon Drive, Palm Springs, CA 92262, and can be reached by calling 760-284-1600 or online, https://www.moviecolonyhotel.com. It is owned and operated by Pacifica Host Hotels.

Storybook, Destination Weddings in Demand at the Newly Reimagined La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla

AUG 1, 2017

Property Completes $12 Million Renovation, Features Legacy Bride Program

La Jolla, CA (2017) - Every bride dreams of having the Grace Kelly style storybook wedding. And after a $12 Million makeover, La Valencia Hotel  - a Mediterranean style pink landmark perched on a cliff over the Pacific since 1926 (also known as the "Pink Lady") - is an ideal choice for Hollywood style glamorous vow-taking and on-trend destination wedding soirees.

Located in the heart of a jewel-like village 30 minutes North of San Diego, the 114-room hotel makes the most of the setting's oceanfront location, offering up picture perfect and very personalized moments for couples tying the knot.

The distinctive Mediterranean silhouette; intimate spaces and tropical sunsets; palm tree lined panoramic views, lush gardens accented with colorful Spanish tiles - all impart an atmosphere of storybook elegance.  With a cathedral-like lobby lounge complete with hand painted ceiling murals… wrought iron chandeliers… colorful mosaics … a picture window with full ocean views…a Romeo & Juliet mezzanine balcony ideal for a musical trio … a garden terrace suspended over the ocean…a centerpiece signature pool…a street facing European bistro … and a greatroom style fine dining restaurant -- La V is a dream-come-true wedding backdrop.

Each couple who marries at the beloved "Pink Lady" is also invited into La Valencia's Legacy Bride Program which includes accommodations to celebrate their 1st wedding anniversary night.  The La V bride then becomes part of an elite sorority that can weave the magic of the hotel into her own anniversaries, family celebrations and hopefully - one day her daughter's wedding!

"We find that today's Millennial brides are looking to create events that are a reflection of who they are," explains Bobby Fader, La V's Wedding Specialist, "whether it's a menu featuring food from different cultures or having special events included in the weekend schedule. In fact, quite often a wedding is not just a one-day affair anymore.  Couples plan full weekend getaways for their guest -- from picnics at the beach to craft beer tours.  What's very popular too, for both gay and straight couples, are pre- wedding cocktail parties and after-wedding brunches for all of their guests."

Besides multi-day, destination-oriented weddings, Fader says he is also seeing the following wedding trends at La V:  Sparkler Exits; Pre-Wedding Cocktail Hours hosted by the couple; Cross-Cultural Events and even Doughnut Bars.

WEDDING, RECEPTION & SPECIAL EVENT VENUES

Whether brides are looking for an intimate affair for a few or a lavish wedding filled with world travelers,  La V, has an array of indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception options for your bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, private events or  seaside nuptials.

Indoor and outdoor hotel ceremony and reception sites include:

  • The Garden With Spanish tiles depicting the original "Pink Lady" on one wall and a sweeping view the Pacific on the other, this open-air terraced overlook is unforgettable as a ceremony or reception location.
  • Verandah Ballroom & Terrace - Potted palms, a black and white marble foyer, picture windows, an open air entry and tufted ceilings with crystal chandeliers and an ocean-view terrace create an elegant wedding ballroom.   At more than 3,000 square feet, the Verandah Room and Terrace offers both indoor and outdoor space, amazing ocean views and can accommodate groups from 20 to 150.
  • THE MED Patio - Surrounded by beds of bright blooming flowers, the Mediterranean Patio creates an ideal al fresco ambience for a wedding reception under the stars. This room can accommodate a cocktail reception of up to 120 or up to 50 for dinner and dancing.
  • The Galeria - For a smaller, more intimate reception, the Galeria's gorgeous open arched windows; classic bar and breathtaking view of the La Jolla Coastline from its mini Romeo & Juliet balconies makes this a very special space.

CULINARY OPTIONS

With a setting like this, expectations are high for culinary offerings and La V rises to the occasion.  An extensive catering menu ranges from hand crafted cocktails to housemade, butler passed hors d'oeuvres as well as multi-course dinners that can be paired with wines from famed flights stored in La V's world class wine cellar.

ACCOUTREMENTS

La V knows that the ultimate in sophistication is keeping the process clear and simple. From photographers to florists, to the ultimate party planner, La V has a trusted cadre of wedding specialists on hand to create highly personalized events.   Wedding themes have incorporated traditions from India, Persia, Japan and Israel and Fader says that LGBT weddings are thriving at the hotel as well.

"What's also so wonderful about La V for nuptials," Fader continues, "is that everyone can feel like the hotel was designed especially to meet their needs.  The beauty of the location is that there are so many different backdrops; so many different ways to tell a story.  Couples can capture photographic memories on staircases, in front of gorgeous tile work, and of course with the breathtaking backdrop of the blue Pacific."

GUEST ROOMS

With each room completely redone in 2013, accommodations in this glamorous coastal retreat blend modern convenience with timeless luxury.  La V offers 114 guestrooms and suites, including 16 exquisite Villas and a 10th floor with Presidential Sky Suite and family-friendly connecting rooms.  All guestrooms are appointed with ample amenities, including 100% Egyptian cotton linens and complimentary wireless Internet.

TRIADA PALM SPRINGS FIRST HOTEL SPONSOR OF INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY ART EXHIBITION "DESERT X"

JUL 2016

Attracting Contemporary Art and Cultural World's Elite to Coachella Valley
Hotel to Offer Exclusive $10,000 Package w/ Heli Tour of Outdoor Site-Specific Works
Plus access to behind-the-scenes & Special VIP Events

Palm Springs, CA (July 2016) - Triada Palm Springs, a new Marriot International Autograph Collection® hotel, is pleased be the first hotel sponsor of Desert X 2017. This site-specific contemporary art exhibition, opening on Saturday, February 25, 2017 and running through Sunday, April 30, 2017 - will bring important international artists to the Coachella Valley to create art, engage viewers, and focus attention on the Valley's natural wonders and vibrant atmosphere. Acclaimed, Los Angeles-based artist, Ed Ruscha, sits on the board of the nonprofit Desert X; Neville Wakefield is artistic director.

Triada Palm Springs will house Wakefield throughout the event's inaugural year and will host special events during Desert X, becoming a go-to location for benefactors and attendees of the exhibition.

The inaugural Desert X is free and open to the public and will engage the cultural and geographic specificity of the Coachella Valley from Palm Springs to the Salton Sea. It will include site-specific commissions by select international contemporary artists in a variety of non-traditional and institutional contexts. The desert landscape will become the canvas for a curated exhibition in various locations, offering visitors a way to see the Valley and reflect on serious and playful issues through the lens of the participating artists' creativity and work.

To commemorate its participation, Triada has announced the creation of an exclusive $10,000 Desert X VIP Package that includes:

  • A Founding Membership to Desert X with VIP access to parties/events, etc. - A $3,000 per person value limited to a small group of dedicated art patrons. This portion is a tax-deductible contribution to Desert X.
  • A helicopter tour of Coachella Valley, where visitors will get a bird's-eye view of some of the outdoor art installations.
  • A private tour of key exhibits with a member of the Desert X team.
  • Lunch with Desert X founder, Susan Davis, at a special valley venue.
  • Three night accommodations in one of the hotel's expansive casitas and daily breakfast.*

With art biennials in Istanbul, Sharjah, and Cartagena as reference points, Desert X is also a recurring exhibition. It is designed to inspire, energize, and reignite curiosity in the multilayered southern California desert, allowing the region itself to function as protagonist, while providing a new context and perspective through which international trends in contemporary art can be experienced.

As the guiding force behind the February to April event, the Desert X Board of Directors reads like a who's who of the philanthropic and art worlds, with representatives from The Annenberg Retreat at Sunnylands, the School of Cinematic Arts at USC, Faena Art Center, Miami Beach & Buenos Aires, the Rudin Family Foundation and more. The exhibition will overlap with Modernism Week, Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and The Stagecoach Festival, three of the area's most well-known events.

Coincidentally, the recently opened Triada Palm Springs resort - formerly the Spanish Inn that welcomed stars like Elizabeth Taylor and Howard Hughes - has taken design inspiration from important pieces by Miro, Picasso and Dali, appealing to travelers who appreciate culture, authenticity and relaxed sophistication. Designed in a hacienda style with three wings and three color themes, Triada Palm Springs is a captivating, historically-rich boutique hotel offering guests a refreshing take on desert luxury.

"Participating in this ground-breaking event made complete sense for us," explains Triada Palm Springs General Manger Todd Husted. "Not only does it celebrate the resort's desert location and design inspiration, but it is also an opportunity to expand our guest base to a distinct group of individuals who value contemporary art and visual culture- international art lovers, collectors, and patrons - and beyond."

"The desert of Desert X is the blank canvas upon which contemporary artists - like the writers, architects, musicians and other before them - will be invited to project their vision," explains Artistic Director, Neville Wakefield. "Unique in that it takes the landscape itself as exhibition space, Desert X will offer the opportunity to explore both the familiar and the unknown through the eyes of others." Referencing Honoré de Balzac's words, Wakefield adds, "If the desert is indeed God without man", then Desert X is art without constraint."

ABOUT TRIADA PALM SPRINGS: Triada Palm Springs is the first Marriott Autograph Collection Hotel - a group of unique, independent hotels by Marriott offering points and benefits to Marriott Reward Members - in the Coachella Valley and only the third in California, with the others in Lake Arrowhead and Imperial Beach.
