Fairmont Miramar Unveils First in Series of Redesigned Suites
Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows in Santa Monica, California has introduced the first in a series of suite redesigns. Residential designer Lynda Murray is designing the renovations, with her trademark classic with contemporary fusion style, while embodying Santa Monica and other Southern Californian themes.
The newly-designed 785-square foot suite offers views of the Pacific Ocean and includes Santa Monica and Los Angeles-inspired artwork, including a black and white Henry Diltz photograph of the 60s band The Doors along Venice Beach. The suite also features hickory hardwood floors, a contemporary candelabra chandelier, a custom-designed velvet wingback bed, distressed metal night stands, and a glass and metal desk that can be transformed into a dining table. A wet bar containing 1920s-inspired cocktail recipes, as well as a retro espresso maker graces the room.
Converted into the Miramar Hotel from the former residential mansion of Santa Monica founder John P. Jones, the property is situated at the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Ocean Avenue. The new collection of residential-style suites with features traditionally found only in apartments marks a return to the hotel’s residential roots.
