The recently renamed Sonesta Irvine hotel announced the completion of a $20 million renovation today.
The remodel includes a new restaurant and bar called Haven Point Provisions & Spirits, a new social space and outdoor lounge, and a redesign of the guest rooms and lobby.
While former office space was turned into a brand-new fitness center, a designated meeting room was constructed and named the ‘Work Suite’ to accommodate group travel.
Taken over by Sonesta International Hotels Corp. in 2019, this is the first major renovation to the property since opening in 1986. It was previously the Wyndham Irvine-Orange County Airport hotel.
Sonesta took advantage of the pandemic to get to work on the hotel’s new look, according to Group Sales Manager Gayle Moro.
Ranking No. 30 on the Business Journal’s list of largest local hotels, Sonesta Irvine counts 339 rooms in total with 29 suites and 145 employees.
