Pebble Beach Company of Pebble Beach, Calif., has announced the opening of Fairway One at Pebble Beach Resorts in August. The Fairway One complex will sit on the left side of the first fairway, offering a new and enhanced guest room experience with oversized accommodations, a greater sense of privacy and personalized service. Complete with ocean, garden and golf course views, Fairway One will include three two-story hotel buildings, two four-bedroom golf cottages and a brand new meeting facility.

“The Lodge and Pebble Beach Golf Links are where our story began in 1919, and now, as we approach our 100th anniversary, the addition of Fairway One will help us continue that legacy for the next 100 years,” says Bill Perocchi, CEO of Pebble Beach Company. “Our guests will find that Fairway One maintains the style, personality, and signature amenities and services that they have come to expect at The Lodge, while delivering a little more privacy and an upgraded experience all its own.”

Stemming from a series of upgrades—the phased renovation of all 454 guest rooms at The Lodge, The Inn at Spanish Bay and Casa Palmero and subtle restorations to Pebble Beach Golf Links—Fairway One will also add 38 guest rooms, including 30 guest rooms in three two-story buildings and eight rooms in two four-bedroom golf cottages fronting the first fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links.

The two Fairway One Cottages will each feature a 1,000-square-foot living room, two king bedrooms, two queen/queen bedrooms, and an outdoor terrace with fire pit. Each living room sports a 17-foot-high wood-beam ceiling, rich wood millwork and wood-burning floor-to-ceiling stacked stone fireplace. Additional amenities include two 55-inch HDTVs, a wet bar, dining area and oversized furniture. Starting at 660 square feet, the 30 Fairway One guest rooms will be located behind the cottages.

The meeting facility will house a 2,500-square-foot meeting room with a capacity of 225 aand several more options for events that can be booked individually or as a complete group buyout. Among the other available spaces is the 700-square-foot Fairway One Board Room, accommodating 26; the 1,000-square-foot Fairway One Living Room, accommodating 80; and the 2,250-square-foot Fairway One Terrace Patio, accommodating 250.

Enhancements at The Lodge, The Inn and Casa Palmero include everything from window wall expansions to interior and exterior renovations and upgrades, and, in addition, various new amenities: fireplaces, air conditioning, 55-inch HDTVs, new lighting, energy management systems, and state-of-the-art door locks.

All enhancements will be completed just in time for the 2018 U.S. Amateur, the 2019 U.S. Open championships, and the celebration of the resort’s 100th anniversary in 2019. Renowned hospitality design firm, Hirsch Bedner Associates, is entrusted with the interior design of Fairway One as well as The Lodge and The Inn guest room renovations.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:

 

In light of COVID-19, a survey commissioned by the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) discovered that 44 percent of Americans are planning leisure trips or overnight travel before the end of 2020.
