California-based Woodside Hotels will take over the management of Dream Inn Santa Cruz and Indian Springs Calistoga. As California’s leading operator of independent upscale hotels, restaurants and spas, Woodside will grow the management portfolio of premier Northern California properties with these new additions.

“Over the years, we have worked to perfect the art of operating and marketing independent hotels; hotels that are steeped in their local character and charm,” says Greg Alden, CEO, Woodside Hotels. “These two preeminent properties reflect our vision with their irreplaceable locations, deep roots in their communities and their commitment to offering memorable experience that are distinctly California.”

Being a multimillion dollar property with its recent renovation, Dream Inn is the only beachfront hotel with every guest room featuring a view of Monterey Bay. The property boasts four-star amenities and services, quality rooms and a relaxing atmosphere.

Indian Springs Calistoga recently expanded and renovated with new cottages, bungalows and the opening of its first restaurant in 2015 called Sam’s Social. 

We are thrilled to manage these unique destination properties that embody the diversity and spirit that we seek in our collection of hotels,” says Alden. “We’re confident that Woodside’s sincere and unscripted hospitality will not only reignite excitement among longtime loyalists, but will attract new visitors to these remarkable resorts.” 

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.   

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.
