The Marina Del Rey Hotel was the first ever hotel built in Marina Del Rey and will be celebrating its 50th anniversary next year. With that large milestone just around the corner, Pacifica Hotels has announced that they have closed the doors (As of August 2013) in anticipation of a 20 million dollar renovation giving the hotel a complete “face lift”.
Pacifica Hotels, California’s largest owner and operator of boutique hotels, announced Aug. 26 that the Marina Del Rey Hotel will reopen in early Spring 2014.
Matt Marquis, president of Irvine-based Pacifica Hotels stated further that “our intention with this renovation is to revitalize the Marina Del Rey Hotel, while maintaining its classic reputation. We have put significant resources into the Marina Del Rey community and want the Marina Del Rey Hotel to be a shining example of Pacifica’s investment in the area’s hospitality landscape.”
After the improvements, 160-room Marina Del Rey Hotel will boast four-star amenities, including a full-service restaurant, 24-hour room service, concierge assistance, an outdoor, marina-facing pool and sundeck, an outdoor wedding venue, and other offerings, according to a Pacifica spokesman.
The Marina del Rey Hotel is one of five Pacifica hotels in the marina area, the company said. The others are Jamaica Bay Inn, Hilton Garden Inn Marina del Rey, Inn at Marina del Rey and Inn at Venice Beach.
Marina del Rey Hotel is at 13534 Bali Way, Marina del Rey. Information (800) 720-0223 or http://www.pacificahotels.com.
