The Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles Hotel has wrapped up their multimillion dollar renovations, debuting a revamp of their on-property restaurant, Costero California Bar and Bistro.

“Costero is the perfect blend of upscale casual dining with a convenient yet inviting environment,” says Bill Sinclair, vice president, Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles Hotel. “This fresh-from-California approach not only provides guests with a new on-site dining option but a place where they can get together with friends, family and coworkers, or even make new connections.”

Costero is a fusion of old and new; executive chef Orazio Parisi emphasizes local, fresh flavors and a California spin on standard American cuisine. They have a new selection of local craft beers made in Venice Beach, Los Angeles and Torrance on tap and in bottles. They also serve more than 50 different wines from California and around the globe.

The new menu features a range of small plates, Neopolitan pizzas, soups, artisanal salads, sandwiches, entrees and desserts. There also will be a rotating seasonal menu of the chef’s creations.

The bar area was also updated with features such as a jumbo Video Wall supported by TVs, providing a space for guests to enjoy small bites and drinks. The bar includes communal tables with charging stations for guests to use while they eat.

Costero is the most recent remodel for the 802-room hotel and is now open to guests.

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.
