Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, in partnership with Long Beach-based investment and development group Pacific6, has announced the redevelopment of the iconic Breakers Hotel in Long Beach, California.
The historic property is currently undergoing a significant restoration and redevelopment, and is slated to reopen in 2023 as Long Beach’s first luxury boutique hotel.
The reimagined Fairmont The Breakers, Long Beach will feature high-end accommodations and amenities, including 185 boutique hotel rooms and suites; a rooftop pool and terrace overlooking the Terrace Theater Plaza; an open-air rooftop lounge and bar with 360-degree views of the Pacific Ocean and Los Angeles basin; a lavish two-story spa, wellness and fitness center; a live jazz club and music lounge; and more than 12,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting and function space. The hotel’s culinary program will include five innovative food & beverage venues, including the reopening of the famed Sky Room restaurant.
Heather McCrory, CEO, Accor North & Central America, said: “We are honored to play a role in the exciting redevelopment of Fairmont The Breakers, Long Beach. Fairmont and Accor are committed to growing our unique collection of hotels in the region, and we are thrilled to add this landmark property to our North American portfolio.”
McCrory continued: “Fairmont is renowned for the brand’s iconic, history-making properties, and The Breakers now becomes a part of that global legacy. The project will set the standard for luxury hospitality in Long Beach, bringing to life a vibrant and thriving destination appealing to locals and visitors alike. The timing is also ideal to add a third standout Fairmont property in Los Angeles, in advance of the FIFA World Cup in 2026 and Summer Olympics in 2028.”
