• Sportsmen's Lodge Reveals Renovations to the Largest Pool in San Fernando Valley

    POSTED September 16, 2019

Sportsmen's Lodge recently revealed its newly renovated pool. Known as the largest pool in San Fernando Valley, the Sportsmen's Lodge pool is an attraction to guests and locals alike.

"We are always looking for ways to improve the guest and visitor experience, and since the pool is our most popular amenity, we like to keep it fresh and update it every couple of years," says General Manager Stephen Chavez.

The pool area is complete with plenty of seating for groups to hold meetings in an unconventional--but much sunnier--setting. Chavez says group retreats often center activities around the pool to make experiences more memorable. "The pool is also a great place to unwind after conferences or meetings, on- or off-site," Chavez says.

In addition to its massive pool, Sportsmen's Lodge has two outdoor and two indoor meeting spaces for groups. All spaces offer full catering services with a variety of menu options available. Also, groups can choose from 190 versatile guest spaces including Executive Rooms and Suites. Each deluxe accommodation offers various amenities, from complimentary Wi-Fi to exclusive bath products. From boardrooms to bedrooms, Sportsmen's Lodge has much more to offer than the area's largest pool (though that doesn't hurt), including a new development to be revealed next year.

"The Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel is excited to announce the development of a highly anticipated retail center destined to become the new heart of the San Fernando Valley! The Shops at Sportsmen’s Lodge will be anchored by an Equinox gym and the Valley’s only Erewhon Market," Chavez says. "The Shops will be home to many special boutiques and restaurants, which will be a great “go-to” spot for guests in 2020!"

Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino is completing the second phase of its multimillion-dollar renovation, resulting in new guest rooms, an adults-only pool and private outdoor event space.

Formerly known as the Blackstone Hotel, the property will reopen as the Kimpton Cottonwood Hotel in spring 2020. Located in the Blackstone District, the oldest neighborhood in Omaha, Nebraska, the lively area is home to some of the city’s best bars, restaurants and nightlife. Its new name, Kimpton Cottonwood Hotel pays tribute to the original Blackstone Hotel’s Cottonwood Room bar that housed a Cottonwood tree growing from the center of the circular bar.
