San Diego Marriott La Jolla

Located just minutes from the scenic Southern California coastline, the San Diego Marriott La Jolla is a luxury destination in San Diego’s Golden Triangle. An extensive $17 million renovation was recently completed at the hotel, featuring stunning guest rooms and a new restaurant and bar with an outdoor patio. During the renovation, Troy Lighting Contract Hospitality was called upon to help execute the design in many of the public spaces, which were transformed by Los Angeles-based interior design firm Kay Lang + Associates. Owned by HEI Hotels & Resorts, the luxurious hotel was recently awarded “Best Renovation – Franchise Division 2013” by Marriott International at the annual Marriott Ownership Conference.

The lobby and lounges were designed to reflect the ambiance of La Jolla and the surrounding areas, according to the design team. The goal was to infuse a “sense of place” into the interiors. Conventional boundaries were removed to open up the spaces and invite the outside in. A reinvented bar adds energy with inside and outside access, while a redesigned dining area invites guests to grab a quick bite or to stay and mingle. “We used Troy’s unique lighting to create distinct and dynamic spaces within the larger space where guests can socialize or be in quiet zones,” said designer Kay Lang. Many of the custom Troy fixtures were built at Troy Lighting Contract Hospitality’s 200,000 square foot manufacturing facility in City of Industry, California. The result is a place that’s sophisticated yet warm and inviting.
