Radisson Undergoes Renovation, Prepares for Change of Flags

 

The Radisson Los Angeles Airport will be undergoing a major transformation. It all started with the hotel’s new, great-looking garage that accommodates 2,550 cars. “With the garage, we added a shuttle service and increased the number of buses so that we can pick-up and take guests to the airport every 10 minutes,” said General Manager Nelson Zager, who added that during the rest of 2014, the hotel will address its infrastructure needs, including new cooling towers, air handlers and boilers; modernize guest service elevators and passenger cars; and renovate its lobby, public spaces, meeting and banquet spaces. In addition, the hotel will add a great new restaurant, bar and market while demolishing its old fitness center near the pool to create an event lawn with lush gardens.

LAWA Cleans Up 5400 Block of Century Boulevard

In early February, Los Angeles World Airports stepped up it’s clean-up efforts along the north side of the 5400 block of Century Boulevard.

The area, which had become an eyesore filled with overgrown brush and littered with trash, now looks beautiful thanks to the work done by the airport’s maintenance team. Broken sprinklers were replaced and shrubs were cut back appropriately.

“LAWA was maybe unaware that it was the property owner in that area” said Laurie Hughes, executive director of Gateway to L.A. “But once we asked them to take a look, they were incredibly responsive.”

Hughes said the clean-up effort underscores the close working relationship Gateway has developed with the airport and the way in which the two organizations work together to achieve common goals such as beautifying the area near the nation’s third-busiest airport.

“Some areas around other airports look rundown, but that’s not something we accept here at Gateway,” she said. “We continue to work closely with the airport to develop a walkable and appealing environment to all of our visitors whether they stay in our hotels, work in our office buildings or come down Century Boulevard on their way to or from the airport.”

Peter Kolla Lands First GM Post

After a career in food and beverage in which he oversaw the doubling of the food and beverage sales at the Sheraton Delfina and the opening of four new restaurants in 18 months as associate director of hospitality at USC, Peter Kolla is now the General Manager of the Four Points by Sheraton. “It’s very exciting,” said Kolla, who embarked on his first GM job in December when the hotel came under the ownership of Crescent Hotels & Resorts. He previously served as food an beverage director at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel, so he is very familiar with the Gateway area. “There is such a buzz in this area,” he said. “This is a great opportunity to show that an airport hotel doesn’t have to be what people think an airport hotel is. It’s great to see how the very talented people in all divisions of the hotel work to provide our guests with the best possible experience.”
