Embassy Suites by Hilton, Los Angeles-Downey Completes $5 Million Renovation
Extensive transformation of all public areas positions the hotel as a leading destination for business and leisure guests traveling to Los Angeles
DOWNEY, Calif. - The 219-suite Embassy Suites by Hilton, Los Angeles-Downey has completed a four-month, $5 million renovation of all its' public areas that include the lobby, atrium, restaurant and lounge, meeting rooms, business and fitness centers and pool area. The renovation transformed the lobby and atrium areas into a "Great-room" concept, providing guests with comfortable, technology-friendly places to work or relax outside of their guest rooms. The hotel is owned by RLJ Development, LLC based in Bethesda, Md. and managed by Embassy Suites Management, LLC, based in McLean, Va.
"The Great-room concept has proven to be a success with our hotel guests who want a place to hang out, conduct interviews, meet friends or simply enjoy a casual dinner," said Maurice Casaus, general manager of Embassy Suites Los Angeles-Downey. "Our open space with special design elements paying homage to Downey's prominent aerospace legacy has been a tremendous success with both our hotel guests and local patrons."
The new design features new contemporary styled lighting, more private seating areas and artwork reminiscent of early aerospace projects. The aerospace theme can be observed in various components of the lobby and atrium, including the hotel's accent chandeliers, constellation-inspired wall décor behind the front desk and a new fountain in the atrium.
The hotel also features Brickstones Grill, a concept created by Hilton Worldwide for the Embassy Suites by Hilton brand. Brickstones Grill offers a contemporary experience that seamlessly transitions made-to-order breakfast to a-la-carte for lunch or dinner in its sophisticated and contemporary open design kitchen. Exclusive to the Embassy Suites by Hilton brand, Brickstones Grill's menu features classic American fare - served in single or family portions. A portion of the existing restaurant space has been converted to flexible multi-use space to accommodate group meals and social functions with access to an outdoor patio.
Located at 8425 Firestone Boulevard in Downey, the hotel is 18 miles from Los Angeles International Airport and 10 miles from Long Beach Airport. Four major freeways are within two miles of the Hotel, offering convenient accessibility to Long Beach, Orange County and downtown Los Angeles. Parking is complimentary.
The hotel features more than 6,000 sq. ft. of meeting space including seven meeting rooms, equipped with movable air walls to easily accommodate any type of event and lend complete privacy to meetings happening simultaneously.
