What is the design style of Casa del Mar?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

Casa del Mar was built in 1926 at the height of the roaring ’20s. Architect Charles F. Plummer designed the opulent Italian Renaissance Revival-style hotel, considered one of the most glamorous on the west coast at the time it opened. Today it’s still considered one of California’s most luxurious beach settings, and underwent a $50 million renovation to restore the hotel to its former glory. Rooms at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel are designed to feel like they’re part of a romantic beach estate, and include four-poster walnut beds and white linens. Mosaic tile work, soft colors and rich woods reflect the “historic beach club” setting, and the eight-story property features a red-tile roof, wrought-iron balconies and sculptures throughout the property.
