Pacifica Hotels, the creative team behind The Wayfarer Santa Barbara, announced The Wayfarer DTLA is now accepting reservations for stays beginning December 16, 2019 and beyond. The hotel will bring 156 private and shared guest rooms and suites, flexible venues, and lively communal areas to Downtown.
The Wayfarer DTLA will breathe new life into the nearly century-old former Ritz Milner Hotel. Pacifica Hotels is modernizing the historic building while celebrating its roots – highlighting the cultural intersection that is Downtown Los Angeles. Eclectic accommodations including 10 thoughtfully designed shared rooms and 146 private rooms each styled for the urban adventurer with standup workstations, app streaming, and rainfall showers.
Design is by Rockefeller Kempel Architects and The Gettys Group, in collaboration with the Pacifica Hotels in-house Design Team. Several artists were commissioned for pieces throughout the property, including Dave Lovejoy of The Last Bookstore for the LA library installation, Cheyenne Randall from the Shopped Tattoo series providing visual interest in unexpected locations including guest room art, Mosstika’s striking moss greenery sculptures, and Derek Gores for the front desk collage.
Dining and entertainment experiences include The Gaslighter Social Club – featuring shared seating -, The Tap Wall – 16 self-pour taps showcasing local brews, wine and kombucha, plus a café serving American bistro fare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily with local coffee partner Groundwork. The focal point of the property’s ground floor is The Kitchen – a fully equipped community-centric cooking and dining experience that allows guests to play chef and host friends by preparing a meal utilizing fresh and responsibly sourced ingredients. Guests will order from a seasonal menu of dishes with ingredients pre-portioned and delivered for their custom preparation.
In the evenings, Lilly Rose located in the basement of the hotel will turn into a vibrant hideaway with a spirited atmosphere featuring handcrafted and barrel-aged cocktails complemented by light fare with vintage game machines like Zoltar, and local live entertainment ranging from stand up to performance art and anything in between. For those looking to take in the famed skyline, the Rooftop, an open-air bar located 12 floors up, will boast a highly eclectic vibe from the design to signature tiki cocktails, sustainable seafood, and street-style fare.
