We don’t like to brag, but we must admit, 2012 was a benchmark year for us. We acquired two properties in key California markets – Cambria Landing and the Belamar Hotel – and completed substantial renovations of several of our existing properties.
Continuing our brand evolution, we recently announced the de-flagging of two of our Best Western Plus properties – Inn at Marina del Rey and Half Moon Bay Lodge in order to transition them to independent Pacifica hotel identities. This transition is aligned with our growth efforts and our desire to give you – the guest – a more consistent lodging experience.
Inn at Marina del Rey is located a few blocks from tranquil Marina del Rey and the vibrant Venice Beach neighborhood. Just steps from the hotel’s front door, guests can enjoy everything from a leisurely boat tour to a stroll along the eclectic Venice Beach boardwalk to some of the city’s best shopping and dining. Hotel amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, daily breakfast and bike rentals. Inn at Marina del Rey provides equal parts comfortable accommodations and access to some of Los Angeles’ best features.
Half Moon Bay Lodge is positioned perfectly to serve as a golf retreat, secluded hideaway and coastal destination, within easy proximity of area attractions. The hacienda-style lodge is adjacent to Half Moon Bay Golf Links, known worldwide for its natural beauty. Not far is some of the California Coast’s best big wave surfing at Maverick’s and fishing at Half Moon Bay State Beach, as well as California’s famed redwoods. While Half Moon Bay Lodge offers access to all of this, it also provides excellent amenities and modern comforts like complimentary Wi-Fi and in-room fireplaces. Whether traveling for business, pleasure, or both, Half Moon Bay Lodge ensures guests have a genuine experience.
As the largest owner and operator of boutique hotels on the Pacific Coast, these property changes and enhancements are consistent with our overall mission to provide exceptional hospitality experiences and unique lodging products to our guests.
