Hotel Happenings in Carlsbad, CA

CARLSBAD, CA—The coastal destination of Carlsbad, CA—known for its colorful flower fields, Legoland California Resort, wellness retreats and seven miles of beaches—welcomes new hotel and resort developments that further strengthen its offerings to group business.

“Carlsbad, CA, is a sought-after destination for meetings and events of all sizes. Not only do we offer elegant meeting spaces at our hotels and resorts, we also offer experiences that engage guests outside of the boardroom including stand-out wellness, outdoor, golf, and culinary offerings,” said Mark Rudyk, director of marketing and communications at Visit Carlsbad. “With these new enhancements Carlsbad is poised to continue to meet and exceed the needs of travelers in 2020 and beyond.”

The Cassara Carlsbad, a part of Tapestry Collection by Hilton, has opened. Situated on 12 acres overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Carlsbad’s landmark flower fields, the hotel takes inspiration from the flower fields, showcased in its floral and feminine decor. The lobby complements the fields with its color scheme, while the Cassara’s distinctive logo embodies the colorful rows of blossoming ranunculus. The hotel uses the flower’s shape throughout the hotel, creating iconic Mediterranean shapes that originated in century old Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian architecture.

The new hotels debuts with 3,980 sq. ft. of meeting space and 90 guestrooms; 29 suites will be added in 2020. The amenities include everything from a restaurant offering healthy cuisine and a bar serving Carlsbad-inspired cocktails, a heated pool, a fitness center, private Legoland entrance and shuttle transportation within a five-mile radius of the hotel.

Additionally, Omni La Costa Resort & Spa plans to reveal the new Costa de La Luna ballroom in 2020, which will add 30,000 sq. ft. to its collection of 46 meeting rooms. With the addition, Omni La Costa will now have a total capacity of more than 164,000 sq. ft. In line with the resort’s overall deecor, the Costa de la Luna ballroom is inspired by the architecture of Spanish missions native to Southern California.

The Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, Golf Club, and Spa recently announced its $50-million coastal luxury reimagination set to complete in fall of 2020. The expansive renovation will include guestrooms and suites, upgrades to the property’s eight meetings and event spaces, and enhancements to the grand lobby entrance, spa, two pools, and the championship Arnold Palmer-designed Aviara Golf Club.
