Hotel & Spa
The Meritage Collection synthesizes iconic, one-of-a-kind places with enrichment programs for the curious traveler. With acclaimed resorts in Napa Valley, La Jolla, Kauai, and now Huntington Beach, the Meritage Collection aims to set the stage for the extraordinary. They strive to blend luxury, comfort, and local flair to each destination.
Our client wanted to add a new locally inspired property in Huntington Beach, better known as Surf City, USA. They wanted to take inspiration from the vibrant surf culture of the area while being mindful that real estate is at a premium and salt in the air posed a higher risk of corrosion to materials.
To save space and to mitigate the effects of the salty ocean air, the parking garage was built underground and includes
a specialized ventilation system with methane and carbon dioxide monitors. To conserve energy, mechanical system design includes a water-cooled central plant and integrated low voltage controls.
This 191,000-square-foot luxury hotel has 250 guest rooms and amenities. It includes a full-service spa with both indoor and outdoor treatment rooms, restaurants, and a custom roof deck and bar.
