As of now, the updates for the Ballroom, Windows Lounge, Cabana Restaurant, and pool are completed with room refurbishments wrapping up soon. A new restaurant, Culina, Modern Italian will debut in early March.
The renovations aim to combine the hotel’s signature floral motifs with a new sense of California cool–natural elements and hues, added privacy for events and celebrity guests, and a bit more whimsy. Take the redone Cabana Restaurant on the hotel’s fourth floor. The overhauled menu features categories like “Indulgence,” “Energy Booster,” “Antioxidant,” “Comfort,” and “Kid’s Corner.”
As for the rooms, the updates will highlight the hotel’s history with a glamorous 1940’s vibe, tempered by pops of teal or coral.
All in all, this may just be the best cosmetic work to come out of La-La Land.
