MORENO VALLEY, California, May 18, 2010 - Convenience, comfort and concern for the environment are highlights of the Inland Empire's newest hotel, Ayres Hotel & Spa Moreno Valley, which is set to open in late May.
Located at 12631 Memorial Way in the TownGate Promenade on Moreno Valley's west side, the luxurious four-story hotel was developed under the direction of Ayres Hotels' Principal Bruce D'Eliscu.
It is the eighth to be built in the Inland Empire by the family-owned chain of European-style boutique hotels, which is headquartered in Costa Mesa, California. Previously, D'Eliscu oversaw development of Ayres Hotel Redlands.
"We are pleased to bring the Ayres Hotel brand to Moreno Valley and are confident that it will be one of Southern California's top metropolitan markets," said D'Eliscu.
A reinvigorating spa experience awaits guests in the hotel's private full-service spa facility, Sandalwood Spa, which includes five dedicated rooms where guests can select from a full menu of treatments. A state-of-the-art fitness center and outdoor solar-heated swimming pool and spa are also available for guests to enjoy.
The emphasis on comfort continues in the hotel's 127 well-appointed guestrooms that feature special touches like exclusive Ayres Dream Sleeper pillow-top mattresses with triple sheeting, plus flat screen televisions, complimentary high speed Internet access, microwaves, refrigerators, luxuriously appointed bathrooms and more.
The amenity-packed property features a spacious lobby with fireplace, a business center, and meeting or event space. Creature comforts also include a complimentary full cooked-to-order breakfast served daily. The Ayres Lounge will be open nightly from 5 pm to 10 pm serving inventive appetizers, signature cocktails and local beer and wine. Parking at the hotel is free.
Among the environmentally friendly practices in place at the hotel include biofiltration in landscaping to accomplish storm water management objectives, using pervious pavements and infiltration to minimize water runoff, and planting mature trees to reduce cooling costs by shading buildings and reducing ambient temperatures.
The company has installed a state-of-the-art energy management system within guestrooms, using fluorescent lighting whenever possible to ensure maximum energy efficiency along with improved lighting for guests, and installing water-saving showerheads.
Jason Ward, who previously managed Ayres Inn Alpine, will manage the hotel. Prior to that assignment, he was the assistant general manager at the chain's Corona West hotel. At Moreno Valley, he will direct a staff of approximately 50.
At least ten restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel and include Applebee's, BJ's Brewhouse, Chili's Grill and Bar, On the Border and Mimi's Cafe. Also nearby is the popular Moreno Valley Mall, as well as Harkins Theatres featuring 16 screens and California's only in-lobby children's Playcenter.
The master developer of TownGate Promenade is the Fritz Duda Company of Newport Beach. California.
