The award, given to an ALHI member hotel or resort, celebrates outstanding leadership and loyalty to performance in the preceding year. The award also celebrates a property’s teamwork with ALHI’s Global Sales Team to benefit the meetings and events industry.

Monarch Beach Resort, a AAA Five-Diamond property, overlooks the Pacific coast. In addition to 400 guest rooms and suites, seven dining options and an 18-hole golf course, the property also features 90,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting space.

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.
