New hotel management company Casetta Group launched its portfolio with the acquisition of three Southern California properties. The company plans to partner with Los Angeles-based architectural design studio Electric Bowery to debut property-wide renovations and new food-and-beverage concepts next year.
In San Diego, Casetta Group bought The Pearl Hotel, a 23-room property with a pool. The company expects renovations to the property and its restaurant Charles + Dinorah will wrap this winter.
Casetta Group also plans to finish a property-wide restoration of the 30-room Casa Cody in the spring. Founded in the 1920s, the property is the oldest operating hotel in Palm Springs, Calif., according to Casetta Group.
The company expects to relaunch the Marina Resort in Big Bear Lake, Calif., under its original name, Marina Riviera, also in the spring. The renovation will upgrade the property’s lobby, guestrooms, pool and spa and introduce a new lakefront restaurant.
Following completion of these projects, Casetta Group plans to expand its 94-key portfolio by two hotels each year.
According to Carolyn Schneider, president and partner of Casetta Group, “While each property tells its own story, Casetta will weave a cohesive thread, cultivating personalized experiences that connect guests with the local communities and destinations.”
