The 15-floor Marriott La Jolla underwent a $17 million renovation in 2014 bringing its meeting and event spaces up to spec, as well as updating all the hotel’s decor. The seven-month long project consisted of an
extensive renovation of the 372 guestrooms, suites, bathrooms, corridors, public areas, as well as relocation and renovation of the meeting rooms and fitness center.
The ground level project involved the complete demolition of the lobby and surrounding areas and the
creation of the stunning new lobby and reception, lobby lounge with pass-through bar to a new exterior patio lounge, new restaurant & bar.
The huge lobby was redone in a modern decor that blends the right angles of minimalist contemporary
furniture with organic elements like tree stumps repurposed as coffee tables. Stone-accented columns rise to a high ceiling strung with pendant lamps that are as much an installation piece as a light source.
By incorporating wood panels and fabric curtains around wall dividers, separate spaces are created,
lending a feeling of intimacy within the cavernous room.
The Marriott La Jolla was awarded “Best Renovation - Franchise Division” by Marriott Hotels.
