LOS ANGELES—Officials of Island Hospitality Management, the premier third-party management company for select-service and upscale extended-stay hotels in the United States, announced today that it has taken over management of the 170-suite Home2 Suites by Hilton Woodland Hills Los Angeles.
“We continue to specialize in quality assets in markets with high barriers to new entry with multiple demand generators that are better able to weather market fluctuations,” said Gregg Forde, COO and EVP, Island Hospitality Management. “The Home2 Suites by Hilton Woodland Hills Los Angeles marks our third Home2 and our 30th Hilton-branded property in a state where we’ve operated successfully for many years. Our familiarity with the brand and the area will allow us to ramp up the hotel more expeditiously as we are able to share best practices and economies of scale. This will allow us to better serve the business and leisure guests who seek the additional space and amenities provided by an extended-stay product like the Home2.”
Located in Woodland Hills at 21110 West Oxnard Street, the hotel is situated in the heart of Warner Center, with 10 million square feet (SF) of office space with approximately 50,000 employees, almost 8 million SF of retail space and is home to more than 20,000 residents. The seven-story hotel is also a short drive from Topanga State Park, Universal Studios Hollywood and the beaches in Malibu. Hotel amenities include a heated indoor pool, state-of-the-art business center, 24/7 fitness center, complimentary, hot breakfast, free Wi-Fi and 342 square feet of event space. Guest rooms contain separate living, sleeping and dining areas, complete with a fully stocked kitchen, oversized workspace and plush beds. The hotel benefits from tenured personnel produced by Island’s Pathways Program, with a combined total of over 20 years’ experience at Island Hospitality Management between the general manager, director of sales and director of rooms.
Guests may dine at the hotel’s newly opened “Toasted Barrel,” the second outpost of Island Hospitality’s homegrown F&B concept that can be described as an all-American bourbon forward restaurant. The 1,200 square foot, 20-seat bourbon bar serves locally sourced beers and wines, as well small plate meals. The F&B outlet specializes in grilled cheese sandwiches, ranging from brisket grilled cheese to kimchi grilled cheese to a version layered with smoked bacon, gouda and maple syrup. With more than 60 bourbons from which to choose, the bar’s signature drink, the Smoky Deal, is crafted with bacon-infused bourbon, maple syrup and bitters.
