Effective Dec. 1, Eden Resorts & Suites will cease to operate as a Best Western Premier brand and operate independently. This will allow them to enhance the local experience without having to adhere to generic nationwide protocols.

The Lancaster, Pa.-based hotel announced this after completing a 10-year renovation that cost $50 million. The hotel features 300 rooms and suites, two award-winning restaurants, a cocktail lounge, indoor and outdoor pools, and an outdoor recreation complex and expanded fitness center.

“As a hotel, we pride ourselves on our ability to identify and react to the specific needs of the marketplace,” says Stephen Sikking, managing partner. “Our decision to become independent allows us to be more responsive to our clients’ needs and not to a specific hotel brand. We are unlike any hotel in the market; a unique locally-owned-and-operated hotel that offers the benefits of a full-service resort, an extended stay hotel and a specialty meeting facility, all within the same property.”

Despite being open for only 15 months, Somni is awarded two Michelin stars. Led by Chef Aitor Zabala with Chef José Andrés, the SLS Beverly Hills restaurant celebrates the honor as well as the Michelin Guide’s return to Los Angeles after a decade.
