Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Calif., has announced the completion of its 65-suite makeover. The AAA Four Diamond resort renovated 63 one-bedroom suites and two executive suites as part of a reinvestment into the property. The Pechanga Tribe’s $285 million resort expansion is slated for completion in December 2017.

“We reconfigured the suite floor plan to create a more dynamic, interesting and comfortable use of the square footage,” says Ann Fleming, lead designer, Cleo Designs. “We needed to make technology capabilities within the suites totally effortless for guests. It now feels completely built-in, like they were there all along.”

The suites offer new fabrics, furniture, artwork, décor, paint and wall coverings.

“The new one-bedroom and executive suites are simply stunning,” says Patrick Murphy, president, Pechanga Development Corporation. “These very plush yet comfortable suites give a hint of what’s to come with the new hotel wing. We are confident we have raised the bar.”

The one-bedroom suites have replaced a built-in bar with a dining area; they also offer a wrap-around floor plan with an open living area and private bedroom. The two executive suites make up the largest floor plan in the resort, each at 1,320-square feet. They removed walls by the entry to open the living space and a high-top dining area.

Pechanga offers guests 84 suites and plans to add hundreds more following their $285 million expansion that also will add a four-acre pool complex, two new restaurants and 70,000 square feet of meeting and event space.

The Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC), which is a LEED® Gold certified facility, marked Earth Day 2022 by announcing a ban on single-use plastic bottles throughout the facility.  

Levy Restaurants, the LACC’s exclusive food and beverage partner, has replaced single-use plastic bottles with aluminum bottles in cafés and catering operations. Beverages sold in the Center’s vending machines have followed suit.

 

Sustainability doesn’t always have to be hard for hotels. It can sometimes be soft. And we mean that literally. When the Best Western Avita Suites wanted to find homes for 200 of their gently used pillows and cases they were replacing, they reached out to Discover Torrance for assistance.

 

This year’s Oscars broke new ground, and, no, we’re not talking about the slap heard round the world. Some six months after it opened in September 2021, the Academy of Motion Pictures hosted the inaugural Oscars Night at the Museum. More than 1,000 guests attended the sold-out Oscars viewing part, beginning with a walk down the red carpet in their own version of pre-show glamour.
