Hyatt Place Pasadena has officially opened across from the Pasadena Convention Center, offering an ideal location and high-end amenities for meeting and event planners. 

The 189-room property is the first Hyatt-branded hotel and features the Hyatt Place brand’s intuitive design, casual atmosphere and enhanced food and beverage offerings. The hotel is led by Ensemble Real Estate Solutions & Investments, and operated by Interstate Hotels &
Resorts.

“It’s an exciting time for our destination. In addition to recent hotel renovations, the new Hyatt Place adds to the city’s flourishing hotel offerings and amenities. The property allows us to attract larger conventions and meetings to the destination,” says Jeanne O’Grady Goldschmidt, executive director of the Pasadena Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Hyatt Place’s location is ideal for those looking to experience all that the city has to offer, while remaining within reach of Old Pasadena and the convention center.”

Hyatt Place Pasadena offers more than 3,000 square feet of flexible, high-tech meeting/function space in addition to free Wi-Fi, a coffee to cocktails bar offering specialty coffee and premium beer, wine and cocktails, as well as a 24-hour fitness center. 

Los Angeles reached a historic milestone in 2018, welcoming 50 million visitors for the first time ever and accomplishing the destination’s tourism goal two years early. The new record is 1.5 million visitors higher than 2017’s total, marking the eighth-consecutive year of tourism growth for Los Angeles.  

 

Los Angeles-based Factory Place Hospitality Group has hired Bryan Marn and Janalane Southard to oversee restaurant sales and events at its properties in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Marn joins the FPHG team as events director for the group’s Los Angeles restaurants—The Factory Kitchen, Officine BRERA, and sixth+mill pizzeria and bar. Southard joins the team as restaurant sales manager for the newly opened The Factory Kitchen in The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. 

 

Persimmons are one of the stars of farmers markets in Southern California this time of year. So it’s fitting that Santa Monica, which has four celebrated weekly farmers markets, is commemorating the fruit during its annual Restaurant Week, which takes place January 7-13.

Chefs at the nearly three-dozen participating restaurants will be crafting special dishes built around the persimmon, from appetizers to main courses to desserts.
