Hyatt Carmel Highlands Undergoing Major Renovation Hotel Turns 100 in 2017

Frequently asked Questions on Renovation Renovation to be Completed July 2016

Salinas, CA, May 30, 2016 – The Highlands Inn was built in 1916 by Frank Work and sold to J. Frank Devendorf, one of the co-founders of the city of Camel-by-the-Sea, who opened it in 1917. Devendorf envisioned an inn “that combined the rustic qualities of its setting, yet offered travelers all the luxury that the progress of the new century could offer,” according to a story in The Monterey Peninsula Herald archives. Devendorf developed the Carmel Highlands as a residential community with a keen appreciation of its unique setting. Devendorf and his longtime foreman, Frank DeAmaral, planted pine trees and laid out the roads and building sites to be in harmony with the natural surroundings.

As early as 1906, the San Francisco Call newspaper devoted a full page to the “artists, poets and writers” of Carmel-by-the-Sea and Carmel Highlands.

Over the years, the Highlands Inn and the Carmel Highlands area became a haven for many artists and writers, including authors Robinson Jeffers, George Sterling, Jack London, Harry Leon Wilson and Mary Austin; journalist Jimmy Hopper; photographers Ansel Adams and Edward Weston, marine painter William Ritschel and Pulitzer Prize-winner playwright and novelist Martin Flavin.

Building on that tradition, the Carmel Highlands has continued to host notable celebrities, including Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez, Robert Redford, Tina Turner, Michael J. Fox, John Denver, Tony Bennett and John Travolta. The Highlands Inn has also played host to nobility, including the Crown Prince of Japan and the Crown Prince of Jordan.

Renovation Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in the renovations?

The renowned Hyatt Carmel Highlands is completing one of the most exciting renovations in its 99-year history. The hotel’s award-winning restaurant, Pacific’s Edge, along with the guestrooms, bar, hotel entrance and lobby area are undergoing a series of upscale enhancements inspired by the property’s refined charm and classic seaside setting.

Renovations will include the merger of Pacific’s Edge with the hotel’s excellent casual bistro, California Market, into a new restaurant — California Market at Pacific’s Edge.

When will the renovations be completed?

The renovations are currently being completed in phases to accommodate guests. We will continue to keep guests informed as the phases are completed.

What is the design inspiration?

The design concept for the renovation is based on the rich history of the property.

Drawing from the artist colonies that were the heart of the artistic and literary landscape that Carmel is known for, the new restaurant and bar area will reflect a celebration of those elements and casts a nod to the rugged local coastline. As guests arrive, sculptural elements of flying coastal birds will greet them, framing a breathtaking view of the Big Sur coast. Seating styles are a comfortable collection of chairs featuring tweed fabric and leather “elbow” patches reminiscent of a country sports jacket.

What was the idea behind the renovations?

We are thrilled to offer our patrons these improvements. This luxurious refresh will offer some new design elements, while maintaining the unique and authentic feel that has made visiting this property such a memorable experience for so many during the last century.

What will the transformation of Pacific’s Edge entail?

The hotel’s fine dining restaurant, Pacific’s Edge, will be merged with the hotel’s casual bistro, California Market, into one venue, California Market at Pacific’s Edge. The new three-meal restaurant will be on the upper level, where Pacific’s Edge was located and feature an expanded 40-seat, 1,200-square-foot heated outdoor dining deck with awe-inspiring views of the rugged coastline. The addition of the glass-railed deck will allow capacity at the restaurant to increase by about one-third, to 140 diners and allow for unobstructed views.

New seating arrangements will include a large communal table made of a fallen Monterey cypress trunk and high-top tables in select areas to allow everyone a great view of the Pacific Ocean. The space feels tailored yet comfortable for that casual breakfast or lunch, as well as a relaxing celebratory dinner overlooking a spectacular sunset.

What other renovations are taking place?

In addition to the restaurant upgrades, renovations will be completed in the front entrance, guestrooms, bar and lobby area.

How are guest rooms being renovated?

Guests will enjoy new furnishings, décor, color schemes, new heating and the addition of air conditioning across the hotel’s 48 rooms inclusive of its 10 suites. The guestrooms’ refreshed look will draw upon the hotel’s upscale coastal ambience.

How will the bar area be upgraded?

The existing bar, Sunset Lounge, will be reconfigured to take greater advantage of the spectacular views of the Pacific coastline. The design theme for the lounge is derived from elements consistent with the area’s historic artist colonies.

Timber frames and metal strappings that were once used to hold back the coastal cliff sides are being represented in the design elements. Artisanal glass blown pendant lights are above the bar. Sleek marble countertops create a perfect nook to share crafted artisanal cocktails, award-winning wines and great conversation.

What renovations are taking place in the lobby?

New furnishings and living room style components will be added to the hotel’s lobby area, which will be outfitted to accommodate private parties of more than 100 guests.

What is the name of the design firm?

Clear on Black is an interior architectural design firm for upscale and luxury hotels and resorts. The firm has designed several of the exclusive properties that form part of the Hyatt Vacation Ownership portfolio.

Will there be any changes to the cuisine?

In addition to the renovations, a series of exciting new dining options by Executive Chef Chad Minton will be unveiled. Chef Minton and his executive sous chef Alvaro Dalmau have devised a new menu that features the most popular selections from both restaurants along with several new selections

Will California Market close?

California Market will continue to operate either in its current location or someone else onsite once the new restaurant is completed.

Will the new venue be considered fine dining?

There will be some fine dining components; however, the new venue will also feature other elements to appeal to a broader audience.

Is there a philosophy behind the new menu?

The menu embraces the philosophy of conscious cuisine, which we are committed to providing our guests every day. This commitment includes:

• Utilizing meats and poultry that are only naturally farmed and certified organic
• Utilizing only the finest, locally sourced meats, fish and produce.
• Forming partnerships with local foragers and purchasing organic produce primarily within a 100-mile radius of the property
• Purchasing sustainable seafood in compliance with the Monterrey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch

What are some of the new menu items?

Sample menu items at California Market at Pacific’s Edge include a cast iron skillet egg scramble featuring chorizo, tomato, potato, cilantro and grilled bread and organic fried eggs, all natural, hickory-smoked maple bacon, Monterey jack cheese on toasted brioche bun, for breakfast.

Lunch includes such delectable choices as Baja fish tacos featuring fresh locally caught fish topped with shaved cabbage and chipotle aioli; chicken sofrito empanadas with Santa Barbara green olives, capers and smoked paprika aioli; and a Petaluma fried chicken sandwich with spicy pickles and black pepper honey on a toasted brioche bun.

For dinner, start with an appetizer of heirloom tomatoes, buratta mozzarella, opal basil blossoms and sherry vinegar, followed by signature entrees such as merlot-glazed short ribs with roasted baby heirloom carrots, kale and buttermilk potato puree and hook and line-caught sea bass with almond gazpacho, grapes, basil oil, and sun choke chips.

Even the bar menu will be reinvigorated with such items as short rib tacos, buttermilk-dipped and fried calamari, Gilroy garlic fries and a classic double-patty with American cheese PCH Burger.

UglyDeck.com Announces the Top Deck Design Trends for 2016

The Minnesota deck builders at UglyDeck.com have released their annual list of the top deck design trends for 2016.

Burnsville, MN, USA — UglyDeck.com, a Minnesota deck building company, has announced their annual list of top deck design trends for summer 2016. The list is composed of design features that the deck builders report have increased in popularity over the previous year. These trends include everything from decking accessories to new colors of decking materials. The goal of this list is to help homeowners find inspiration for their own deck design when building a deck or refinishing a deck in the coming months.

As leading deck builders in Minnesota, the deck contractors at UglyDeck.com are constantly searching for the next big thing in decks and decking accessories. Each year, they compile the most popular (and most unique) trends for the upcoming outdoor deck season. The top three items from this year’s list include:

• Composite Decking Material: Over the last few years, composite decking and maintenance free decking materials have exploded in popularity. These decking materials don’t require staining and their maintenance costs are much lower than a standard wooden deck.

• Multi-Level Decks: Different than multi-story decks, multi-level decks feature a contemporary design that creates a natural separation of entertaining spaces. A raised dining space or sunken hot tub area are great ways to incorporate multiple levels in a deck design.

• Two-Toned Designs: Gone are the days when decks were only stained a single color. Incorporate complimentary colors in decking material or decking accessories. Matching lighter-colored deck railings with darker decking boards is an easy way to create a unique deck design with color.

To see the full list of top decking trends for 2016, visit the deck building company’s website at http://www.uglydeck.com.

Those interested in learning more about UglyDeck.com’s deck building services or maintenance free decking materials, contact the deck building company at 952-763-3308 or info@uglydeck.com. Customers are encouraged to meet the UglyDeck.com team in person by visiting their deck building showroom in Burnsville, MN.

Bang-Bang in Watchland

Lausanne, Vaud, Switzerland, 2016-May-27 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — On March 22nd, the Goldgena Project was launched with the goal of creating affordable mechanical watches with complete transparency regarding their origin and costs. The aim is also to shake up the ‘Swiss Made’ label and the traditional approach to distribution and marketing. The community is invited to share their opinion and even get involved in each stage of the project. At the time of writing, more than 3,500 people have signed up, and our site is recording more than 28,000 visits and 45,000 views every month.



MARCH, 30TH – CHAPTER 1: TTO Label – Total Transparency on Origin DISCOVER
The Swiss Made label can be obscure and ultimately mislead consumers, as most of the components are manufactured abroad. The Goldgena Team has decided to make their watches with complete transparency, and have thus created the TTO label; Total Transparency on Origin.

APRIL, 13TH – CHAPTER 2: Transparency on Prices and Fixed Multiplier DISCOVER
Goldgena will be communicating and explaining the production cost of their watches. In addition, by selling directly to the end consumer they will be able to apply an unmatched modifier of 3.5 to the production price.

APRIL 27TH – CHAPTER 3: Online Sale, Pop-Up Stores and Sponsorship DISCOVER
The Goldgena Project is planning to foster community power by offering a commission of 10% to anyone who generates a sale. In addition, an application will allow potential customers to meet watch owners, so that they can see the product before buying.


MAY 11TH – CHAPTER 1: Non-Swiss Made, Swiss Made or Swiss Manufacturing? DISCOVER
We wanted our first model to feel mechanical from every angle, so we made the dial an extension of the movement. We wanted the case to be simple, elegant and ergonomic, while still overflowing with character. Fine horns and crosspiece give it a particular, recognizable aesthetic.

In-house or standard movement? Non-swiss made, swiss made or swiss manufacturing? The community shares his opinion.

JUNE-AUGUST: Development and Crowdfunding
During the summer, the Goldgena Project will share every detail of the development. In September a crowdfunding campaign will be launched. The detailed program will be available end on May at www.goldgena.com

The Goldgena Project Dream Team

The Goldgena Project is run by a small watch design workshop called cosanova, and is currently made up of 3 people. Founded in 2005 by the designer Claudio D’Amore, the workshop is based in the heart of Swiss watchmaking, in Lausanne, not far from Geneva. In little more than 11 years, the cosanova workshop has had the honor of working with around forty watch brands, such as Tag Heuer, Parmigiani, Montblanc, Oris, Eberhard and even Hautlence.

The Founder, Claudio D’Amore
Born in Switzerland to Italian parents, in 2000 Claudio D’Amore (40) graduated from the ECAL (Lausanne Design School) with an HES degree in design. He then set off for London to work with Ross Lovegrove, the famous London-based designer, where he worked on the design of several watches for Tag Heuer (V4, Carrera Caliber 360, Golf Watch). Upon his return to Switzerland in 2005, he founded cosanova.

MARWIS Product Film recognized with international prizes

Fellbach, Baden-Wurttemberg (realtimepressrelease) May 27, 2016 – For all those who haven’t watched the film about the advantages of the mobile road sensor MARWIS yet, it’s now time the latest: A few days ago, two international awards went to the creators of the MARWIS film. They originate from the two most important festivals of the independent and short film industry. Thus, the filmmakers from NCP Film, whom Lufft again gave its trust, have continued with their success of the last two years, in which their productions for the sensor manufacturer were awarded with seven international film prizes in total.

With the MARWIS product film published in March 2015, NCP Film once again convinced international film juries. It became known on May 11, 2016 the latest, when the World Media Festival in Hamburg took place and the winner trophies changed hands. For the third time in a row, a Lufft production from NCP Film was amongst the winners there. The jury honored “MARWIS” with the highest prize level: the intermedia-globe Gold Award.

Almost in parallel, a WorldFest Houston Platinum Remi award in the category “Advertising/ Promotional” went to NCP for the same project. This represents the most valuable prize as well.

Lufft has collaborated with the filmmakers of NCP Film for two years now. The first joint project was about a new handheld instrument series. It was rewarded with an intermedia-globe Gold in Hamburg and a Platinum Remi Award in Houston. The second production has dealt with the Lufft I-BOX, a device allowing different climate sensors to be integrated into a measuring network and taking over different functions.

It’s always exciting to assist NCP Film in the planning, shooting and the editing of footage. It’s amazing, how much attention to detail and appropriated product know-how they put into a film production. With this studio, we found the right partner in terms of films and look forward to the next common project. It’s time to say thank you for the commitment to all those who were involved in the MARWIS film,” sums up Lufft Marketing Manager Tobias Weil.

Local Author, Joseph Sabol Publishes “Adoptee: A Childhood of Torment”

An Inspirational Tale of Overcoming an Abusive Childhood.

Cleveland, OH (USA), May 26th, 2016 — What begins as a tragic story of childhood bullying coupled with emotional and physical abuse turns into an inspirational story of one local resident who has become an award winning entrepreneur. Joseph Sabol’s story, as chronicled in his self-published autobiography Adoptee: A Childhood of Torment, pulls no punches, quite literally, when retelling his story of being in the foster system prior to being adopted by John and Tilly Sabol.

“I suffered years of bullying, beatings and humiliating treatment even after I was adopted,” said Joseph Sabol. “All through my school years the other students and even some of the nuns and teachers would make fun of me, beat me and abuse me to a point where most would give up and escape through drugs or alcohol. However, I learned early on that the way to survive was to turn and face my abusers and stand up for myself.”

Joseph attributes much of his ability to survive and thrive to his adoptive parents. They provided the support and strength he needed to continue going back to an abusive environment each day. Adoptee: A Childhood of Torment, not only graphically describes what it was like to face such intensive abuse but also chronicles Sabol’s search for his birth mother and father. At the time of his search, Ohio was a closed state for an adoptee seeking information about their birth parents, however, that didn’t deter Sabol from his quest.

One reader and fellow student of Sabol’s had this to say about the book:
“The author’s ability to tell his story and understand his victimization and go on to a successful happy life can be an example for all! I am proud to call him my classmate.”

Having survived more than a decade of torment, Joseph has grown to be a successful business owner and now wants to share his message of survival with the world.

“There is a way out of this kind of life,” says Sabol. “I want to reach others who might be trapped in a life of emotional and physical abuse and let them know there is a way to survive and thrive. You have to seek help from those you trust. You have to ask, you can’t allow your abusers to take away your voice.”

Joseph Sabol is currently working with executives in the entertainment industry to find a way to bring his story to a larger audience. For more information or to purchase Joseph Sabol’s book Adoptee: A Childhood of Torment, visit Amazon or Barnes and Nobel.

About Joseph M. Sabol:
Joseph Sabol resides in Cleveland and is the owner of J&J Video Productions, voted Cleveland’s #1 Wedding Video Production Company 2010-2016. He attended Penn State University where he holds two degrees. He also earned a graduate degree from Biosystems Institute, Tempe Arizona and went on to become an AMA Board Certified and Registered Respiratory Therapist.

Today, Joseph is an avid videophile and photographer. He and his wife, Diane, are actively involved in their church.

The Clement Palo Alto, Opened in March 2016

Hotel Offers A 6-Star Experience in the Heart of Silicon Valley with Unparalleled Personal Service in All-Inclusive Luxury

Palo Alto, CA, May 26, 2016 – The Clement Palo Alto opened its doors March 2016. It is one of the most innovative, personalized and unique luxury hotels in the country.

With 23 spacious and richly appointed one-bedroom suites, The Clement Palo Alto sets a new standard for personalized luxury accommodations in a contemporary residential-style atmosphere.

The Clement is Now Open Complete Line of Photography Available For Media use https://www.dropbox.com/sh/s6ojv2g661phe2d/AABm21TL-iwzJpkxAmqFgfZ4a?dl=0

While unparalleled service is key to any great luxury hotel, The Clement Palo Alto takes its impeccable service to another level with an all-inclusive concept, including personalized concierge services, breakfast, lunch and dinner in an on-premise location of the guest’s choice. All wine, beer and cocktails, in-room mini-refrigerator (stocked with the guest’s favorites), and fully-stocked Guest Pantry available around the clock, are just a few of the amenities included in this all-inclusive experience.

In fact, The Clement Palo Alto is more than all-inclusive, it is all-exclusive, catering exclusively to the guest’s personal tastes and desires.

No detail has been overlooked at The Clement Hotel, from the guest’s favorite sparkling water and snacks in the mini-fridge to the plush Stearns & Foster European pillow top California King beds with luxurious Frette bed linens.

“The inspiration for this hotel came about when my wife and I took a getaway trip to the island of Bali,” says Clement Chen III, president of Pacific Hotel Management, LLC, creators of The Clement Hotel, Palo Alto. “We stayed at a small hotel there that left a deep impression on us. Everybody at the hotel – even the gardening staff -knew our names, and everyone there was so warm and personable. And, since all of the staff knew who we were, we never had to sign a check for anything. We didn’t feel like we were customers at a hotel – we were able to just relax and enjoy our stay, like being at home, only better!”

That memorable hotel stay convinced Mr. Chen that the same experience would be well-received in the U.S., and that has been the guiding vision for The Clement Hotel.

“I want each guest to feel like a guest, not a customer,” says Chen. “I loved the feeling of not having to sign a check or worry about tipping every time I turned around. That is why we have all-inclusive pricing. We want our guests to feel like they are house guests at a great residence with a terrific service staff.”

The moment guests arrive at the front door, they will step into an oasis of sophistication, service and comfort. Instead of the typical lobby and registration desk of most hotels, guests at The Clement Palo Alto will be greeted by their own Personal Concierge.

This Personal Concierge will have an iPad with all the pertinent information about the guests, including their wants and needs, and take them directly to their rooms. The Personal Concierge will take care of the guests for the duration of their stay and take care of all their personal needs.

During their stay, guests can have breakfast, lunch and dinner prepared in The Kitchen, the hotel’s open kitchen, with an executive chef presiding over the menu tailored to their tastes and requirements. Guests can dine in The Dining Room, the outdoor Dining Terrace, the privacy of their guest suite, or in a private cabana on the private roof-top pool deck overlooking the picturesque Stanford University campus.

Guests also have access to the beautifully appointed communal guest kitchen, which is similar to a high-end residential kitchen, with access to a fully stocked guest pantry that is available around the clock.

The 650-square-foot, one-bedroom suites offer modern and sophisticated comfort reflecting the Northern California lifestyle. Each suite provides an intuitive layout with an array of carefully curated amenities to enhance the guest’s stay. State-of-the-art technology is combined with comfort of the highest quality, such as sumptuous Frette linens, 65-inch Samsung Smart TVs, Nespresso Vertuoline coffee machines, and fully stocked in-room refrigerators.

Spacious stone-lined bathrooms include a soaking tub and a separate glass-enclosed shower, lighted makeup mirrors at a dry vanity area, and a TV behind the mirrors, just a few of the features that will delight their senses.

Other luxurious touches include remote-controlled motorized draperies, a desk fully stocked with office supplies and a connectivity panel for Internet and charging, robe options and slippers of the guest’s choice in the spacious closets.

The common areas of the hotel feature the elegant Living Room, which is accented with a stone fireplace and is the perfect location to relax with a favorite cocktail or glass of wine. Or they can enjoy the firepit on the outdoor Dining Terrace or at the roof-top deck with a swimming pool, whirlpool and private cabanas.

In addition, there is a fully equipped exercise room on the second floor of the hotel available to guests 24 hours.

The interior design of The Clement Palo Alto was created by Stanford Hughes of the renowned, award-winning San Francisco hotel design firm Brayton Hughes Design Studios.

Hughes says his design takes its inspiration from the hotel’s architecture, which he describes as “an abstraction of traditional Manor House.”

“The decor is contemporary, elegant and comfortable. It offers a warm, alluring ambiance in an intimate residential scale,” says Hughes, whose firm’s award-winning designs include Four Seasons Hotel Chicago and The Ritz-Carlton Highlands, Lake Tahoe. “The interior design offers a perfect blend of contemporary and classic elements. The palette of warm neutral colors and natural materials creates a soothing, cozy and relaxing environment. It is elegant and minimal, yet highly livable.
The Clement Palo Alto is more than a hotel, it is a home away from home.”

The Clement Palo Alto’s all-inclusive services and amenities include:
• All-inclusive breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks
• All-inclusive wine, beer and cocktails (charges apply for premium brands)
• All-inclusive in-room dining
• All-inclusive mini-bar
• All-inclusive fully-stocked Guest Pantry available around the clock
• All-inclusive Business Center
• All-inclusive valet parking
• All-inclusive twice-daily housekeeping services
• All-inclusive overnight shoe shine services
• All-inclusive high-speed Internet
• All-inclusive personal concierges
• All-inclusive gratuities

The Clement Palo Alto is ideally located across from Stanford University and next to downtown Palo Alto, with its award-winning restaurants, world-class shopping and upscale spas. It is just 45 minutes south of San Francisco and only 30 minutes north of San Jose, not only making it convenient, but easily accessible to the world-famous sights and myriad activities of both cities.

Overall, The Clement Palo Alto offers a unique, one-of-a-kind 6-star experience in the heart of Silicon Valley with unparalleled personal service, all-inclusive luxury and privacy in a warm, inviting and luxurious residential environment.
