Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel Named in Condé Nast Traveler’s Business Travel Awards
Santa Monica, Calif. (Sept. 25, 2013) – Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel was chosen by Condé Nast Traveler readers as one of the nation’s Best Business Hotels in the magazine’s 16th Annual Business Travel Awards reader poll released today.
The full story can be found here.
The award comes on the heels of the hotel’s $4.5 million façade renovation, featuring new glass guestroom balconies that enhance the crystal clear views of the Pacific Ocean and Malibu. The renewed façade is the beginning of a series of capital investments to keep the hotel fresh and competitive within the thriving Santa Monica hotel scene.
“Whether you’re traveling on business or pleasure, our impeccable views and service make this the place where you want to start and end your day,” said Paul Leclerc, Managing Director. “That becomes especially true when you’re traveling here on business, and we’re happy to know that Condé Nast Traveler readers agree.”
Additional exterior enhancements to the hotel include the addition of “edible landscaping” and a “living wall,”—a green design initiative that advances the hotel’s Santa Monica Green Business Certification. In January 2010, the hotel completed a $7 million remodeling including new chic lobby furniture, atrium redesign, marble flooring, a state-of-the-art sound system and sleek new pool deck furnishings. The guestroom bathrooms also received new wall coverings, marble vanities with contemporary fixtures as well as new bathtub tiles and polished marble floors.
