People who might be surprised to learn that Burbank offers stunning views have never been to Castaway. First opened in 1962, the iconic restaurant reopened this spring after a $10 million renovation. Perched high in the Verdugo Hills, just above the DeBell golf course, the restaurant now has multilevel seating on its sprawling patio, a wraparound bar, floor-to-ceiling windows in its banquet rooms and a gazebo courtyard. All will leave you gasping at the unexpected beauty of the San Fernando Valley. With a full-service events team and eight outdoor and indoor event spaces, Castaway can accommodate groups from 20 to 1,000. Wi-Fi and valet parking are complimentary, the A/V equipment is state-of-the-art and shuttle service is available. Executive chef Perry Pollaci oversees a wide-ranging seasonal menu with a steak-forward focus; there’s an in-house aging room with walls made of Himalayan salt blocks. 

The Central Valley wine region pours on homegrown charm, history, value and surprises for groups.

 

Reno’s newly branded megaresort encompasses three hotels and much, much more.

 

westdrift Manhattan Beach has 393 guest rooms, 26 acres and 35,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor event space, but it also has the intimate feel of a boutique hotel. In that way it’s true to Marriott’s Autograph Collection—it’s the first of these properties to open in Los Angeles area—which combines the muscle and know-how of Marriott with the appeal of unique design and amenities.
