Embassy Suites Los Angeles-Downey completes $5M refurbishment

The Embassy Suites by Hilton, Los Angeles-Downey re-opened after a four-month-long refurbishment period. The $5-million investment saw changes made to the property’s lobby, atrium, restaurant and lounge, meeting rooms, business and fitness centers and pool area.

A key area of investment was transforming the lobby and atrium into a “great room” concept that now provides guests with a place to work or relax outside of their guestroom. Since the birthplace of the Apollo space program was in Downey, the new design evokes the history of aerospace. This theme runs throughout the lobby and atrium, including the accent chandeliers, constellation-inspired wall décor behind the front desk and a new fountain in the atrium.

The 219-Embassy Suites by Hilton, Los Angeles-Downey has two-room suites with a separate living area, two flat-screen HD televisions and wet bar fitted with a microwave, mini-fridge and a selection of gourmet coffee and teas. The hotel also has Wi-Fi throughout all guestrooms and public areas.
