Crestline adds L.A., Miami properties

Crestline Hotels & Resorts has expanded its management portfolio of luxury boutique hotels with the addition of The Delphi in downtown Los Angeles (formerly The Standard Hotel) and the Waldorf Towers in Miami Beach. Both hotels have been completely reimagined.

“These properties are architectural gems within their communities and share a unique design and history that were diligently retained and enhanced by our design teams,” said James Carroll, president/CEO, Crestline. “As a management company, Crestline brings unique expertise in reimagining lifestyle hotels such as el PRADO in Palo Alto, CA, and the Phoenix Park Hotel in Washington, DC. The addition of The Delphi and Waldorf Towers helps secure our position as a leader in managing independent luxury hotels.”

The Delphi

The 207-guestroom hotel is located near the L.A. Convention Center. It includes 10,000 sq. ft. of event space and will be introducing five new restaurant and bar concepts over the next 12 months, including fully renovating and reimagining the rooftop pool and lounge. The 12-story marble-clad building opened in 1955 as the headquarters for Standard Oil. Today, it is recognized for its Art Deco architecture and is considered a City of Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument.

Redesigned by the creative team at Ellis Adams Group, The Delphi features guestrooms, suites and two penthouses with oversized bathtubs, mood lighting, platform beds, large-screen TVs, floating desks and large mirrors. Custom bath amenities are by BeeKind, which donates a portion of profits to help support honeybee research at the University of California, Davis. Bed linens and bath terry are by Italian brand Fili D’oro.

Waldorf Towers Hotel Miami Beach

A historic property on South Beach’s Ocean Drive, the Waldorf Towers is an Art Deco building with 43 guestrooms. Designed by architect Albert Anis in 1937, the reimagined hotel retains its signature rooftop lighthouse perched above the northeast corner. Each of the guestrooms feature oversized soundproof windows, bathrooms with rain showerheads and BeeKind custom bath amenities. The hotel also includes ICON, the on-property restaurant.

Nearby attractions include South Beach, Lummus Park, Muscle Beach and the Collins Avenue Shopping District. Miami International Airport is about 12 miles away.
