Quail Lodge & Golf Club in Carmel Valley, Calif., has announced plans to re-open the resort's 90-room hotel in April 2013. The hotel has been closed since November 2009, while Quail Lodge Golf Club has continued operation.
Quail Lodge management shared plans to rejuvenate the hotel by investing US$28 million to renovate all guest accommodations and public areas and to address the needs of the golf course. The revitalized hotel will be renamed "The Quail Lodge & Golf Club" and repositioned as a family-friendly destination offering exceptional value, accommodations, resort activities and facilities for leisure travelers as well as groups.
Under the new plan, all guestrooms and meeting spaces will receive interior updates by Barry Design Associates, Santa Monica, Calif., whose work includes award-winning properties such as the Four Seasons Beverly Hills and the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, Los Angeles, the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, Hawaii, and the One & Only Ocean Club, the Bahamas. Firm Principal Robert Barry, who has family ties in Carmel Valley, will incorporate historic California Ranch and Spanish Colonial design elements into the new interiors at Quail Lodge to give the hotel a fresh new character that is comfortable, appealing and distinctly Californian.
Also under the plan, the 18-hole golf course will be refreshed and enhanced. KemperSports Management, which operates golf, resort and sports facilities in 26 states and internationally, including Bandon Dunes Golf Resort and Chambers Bay, host of the 2015 U.S. Open, will manage all golf operations for the hotel and club.
The new Quail Lodge will be repositioned as offering exceptional value and priced competitively. Daily Continental breakfast will be included in the room rate, and Edgar's restaurant will serve lunch and dinner.
