TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Courtyard Los Angeles Torrance/Palos Verdes is taking its green efforts to the next level with the completion of a landscaping renovation project that will not only save the hotel money but will help take the edge off of California's severe drought.
The unique project brings a low-maintenance, low-water outdoor environment to the hotel in Torrance, CA and demonstrates the Courtyard's commitment to the surrounding community. Out were the flower beds, hedges and turf, replaced by drought-resistant plants. After a self-audit, the hotel also replaced areas of its irrigation system while adjusting timing and putting in new sprinkler heads.
"Our hotel is an excellent representation of Marriott's Spirit to Preserve program," said David Zimmerman, General Manager. "Supporting the health of the local environment is important to our guests and even more important to us."
During the landscaping renovation, the hotel created the Palos Verdes Lounge, a wall-less yet covered patio space that will provide plenty of opportunities for visitors to relax and enjoy Southern California's moderate temperatures all year around. This new venue at the Palos Verdes hotel is ideal for Torrance wedding ceremonies along the Peninsula Coast, receptions, bridal parties, post-wedding breakfasts and casual business meetings with plenty of cozy seating and views of the pool and palm trees.
Wedding parties or meeting planners can book room blocks at the Palos Verdes hotel and save money while enjoying deluxe accommodations. Guests can look forward to a sound night's sleep on luxurious bedding and piles of fluffy pillows topping thick mattresses. Complimentary Internet access allows visitors to post and share pictures from the big day, while 37-inch LCD TVs with premium cable channels will be nice entertainment in downtime. Comfy sofa beds, mini refrigerators and coffee makers are among other amenities visitors will appreciate in their Torrance wedding accommodations.
Brides and grooms interested in hosting any wedding event in the Courtyard's new Palos Verdes Lounge should contact the hotel's event specialist at 1-310-533-8000 to schedule a tour.
