A $23 million renovation of the Westin Long Beach, including the addition of a restaurant and bar called Navy Proof Food & Spirits, plus a coffeehouse called Bluestone Lane, has been unveiled this summer.
A private event to celebrate the completed work took place this week at the Westin, 333 Ocean Blvd., which is operated by Highgate Hotels.
The remodel includes California coastal-themed modernizations and art installations added to the lobby, guest rooms and public spaces. Navy Proof is an American-cuisine concept created by Howe & Brown Hospitality and features a three-story sculptural chandelier and a living green wall. And Bluestone Lane is an Australian-inspired coffee hub.
“Transformations like the one we are currently going through bring a new, fresh dynamic to the overall cityscape of Long Beach but also instill a sense of pride for our loyal team members who have been with us since the beginning,” said Westin Long Beach Managing Director John Thompson. “For the community and guests alike, the Westin’s new spaces will set the tone for an innovative way to gather, interact and connect.”
The Westin, originally built in 1988, includes 469 guest rooms and suites being redesigned by architect Houston Tyner and designer Vanrooy Creative Group.
