Manhattan Beach, CA
Layton Construction transformed this seven-story hotel, giving it a top-to-bottom renovation and allowing it to join Marriott’s luxury Autograph Collection under a new name – the WestDrift Hotel.
Layton completely refurbished all guestrooms and public spaces with high-end upgrades. A new bar, lounge and kitchen were constructed.
A porte-cochère was added to the entrance, along with a new exterior stair providing access from the hotel lobby to the newly renovated pool and outdoor lounge area.
Demolition work included the removal of the cast-in-place main lobby staircase, complete demolition of the hotel’s restaurant, demolition of three ballrooms as well as removal of the lobby and guest arrival facades.
All of the construction was completed while the hotel remained operational with rooms being booked and events being held.
