Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. returns Le Méridien Hotels to Southern California with the opening of Le Méridien Delfina Santa Monica, debuting this fall. Owned by Pebblebrook Hotel Trust and managed by Viceroy Hotel Group, the transformation will follow a renovation of the Sheraton Delfina Santa Monica Hotel. Located in the heart of Santa Monica, Le Méridien Delfina Santa Monica is situated among the shops, cafes and galleries of the area and walking distance to the Pacific beaches and iconic Santa Monica Pier.

Conceived by award-winning Seattle-based hospitality interior design firm Dawson Design Associates Inc., Le Méridien Delfina Santa Monica will undergo transformation of the hotel’s 310 guestrooms, public spaces and 10,000 square feet of premium meeting space, ideal for business functions and social events. The hotel will also boast dramatic views of California’s southern coastline and offer a full-service restaurant and bar, outdoor pool and grill and fitness center.

Le Méridien Delfina Santa Monica will feature the signature Le Méridien Hub experience, which re-interprets the traditional lobby into a social gathering place for creative people to converse, debate, and exchange, further building on the brand’s arrival experience and curated coffee culture. Le Méridien arrival consists of four elements: large-scale artwork in high impact areas to reset the mind and stimulate dialogue and curiosity; the sensory experience, illustrated through Le Méridien signature scent, sound and use of light, creating a unique and distinctive atmosphere; UNLOCK ART program, featuring LM100 artist designed key card collections that not only offer access to the guestroom but also to Le Méridien brand affiliated contemporary cultural centers in the city; and a 24-hour curated soundtrack.

Viceroy Hotel Group caters to guests seeking high-end service, elegance and glamour.
