LEO A DALY’s renovation of the Beverly Hills Marriott recalls a classic era of California modernism
October 3, 2016
Capitalizing on the “instant cachet” of the locale, LEO A DALY’s renovation of the Beverly Hills Marriott recalls a classic era of California modernism, says Stefani O’Connor, writing in Hotel Business Design’s October issue.
“We sought to create a sleek feel to appeal to guests seeking California’s modern, energized luxury while hinting at elements of the 1920s wealth and grandeur,” says Pat Miller, corporate director of hospitality.
LEO A DALY was engaged to completely transform the guest experience at the property.
The design team took inspiration from luxury car interiors – models such as Cadillac and Packard – to create a contemporary design where guests feel part of something special.
The property has been reinvented from the curbside-up, with a new porte-cochere designed to usher guests into an exclusive getaway. The lobby was redesigned for a sense of arrival with high-gloss finishes and walls removed to create a signature Great Room concept, enhanced by marble floors laid in a chevron pattern the leads guests to social areas.
