MARINA DEL REY, Calif.—***** MdR, a DoubleTree by Hilton, announced today the unveiling of its $7.5 million property-wide renovation, which includes the opening of Barbianca Local *******, the *****’s *** restaurant and bar, and updates throughout the *****’s guestrooms and ****** spaces. The transformation is the final phase in the *****’s repositioning, which began last March when the ***** joined the DoubleTree by Hilton portfolio. “We are thrilled to debut the final phase of the *****’s dramatic transformation,” said Michael Kapoulis, general manager of ***** MdR. “This renovation has truly revitalized the *****, and we look forward to inviting both travelers and locals to experience all of the ‘little things’ that make our ***** unique—starting with the launch of Barbianca Local *******, and continuing with a breadth of the upscale amenities and award-winning service culture for which the DoubleTree by Hilton brand is known.” Los Angeles-based architecture and interior design firm Indidesign was tapped to refresh the building’s exterior, lobby, bar, restaurant, and ******* living space following Hilton’s acquisition of Courtyard by Marriott, the venue’s former occupant. The John Hardy ***** analyzed the property prior to its purchase and project managed its renovation. ***** MdR debuts a modern, sophisticated *** exterior that blends the building into the upscale area, which includes the Stella residential complex and Marina Marketplace. With a less-is-more minimalist feel, ***** MdR’s *** lobby incorporates urban textures and colors, communal seating, and high-end technology to create an inviting space. Mood-setting lighting accents a multi-layered ceiling, giving the space an open airiness that flows from area to area. The **** and courtyard were completely reimagined into an ******* living room offering lounge-style seating, fire pits, tree lights, and ******* cabanas. The multimillion-dollar revitalization project also included a guestroom refresh, redesigned meeting and event space, the addition of a 24/7 market, and upgraded 24-hour fitness and business centers. Barbianca Local ******* offers a fresh, uncluttered design, with a retractable glass wall along one entire side that enables guests to flow seamlessly between its indoor and ******* spaces. A ******* 24-seat dining room and an “Energy room” with a Ping-Pong table were also incorporated into the restaurant’s design. At Barbianca’s helm, Executive Chef Larry Monaco blends an ingredient-focused menu consisting of traditional ******* favorites with a unique twist and utilizes sustainable and organic practices to serve up northern ******* favorites with a dash of Napa Valley sensibilities. Monaco graduated with a Culinary Arts degree from Cordon Bleu and has more than 14 years of culinary training in a variety of settings that include fine dining restaurants, casual bistros, multi-outlet venues, boutique hotels, and high-end catering experience. In *** York, he worked for famous restaurateur Danny Meyers and Chef Floyd Cardoz at Tabla, and under the direction of Chef Tom Colicchio at Gramercy Tavern. As executive chef, he helped positioned ***** City Grill as a local Seattle favorite and in February 2014, Monaco appeared on The Food Network’s hit TV show, Chopped. Less than a half-mile from the marina and across the ****** from Marina Marketplace, an entertainment complex which features over 40 restaurants, shops, theaters, and *** galleries, ***** MdR offers visitors a convenient location for touring and exploring Marina del Rey. Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice and Santa Monica are also just minutes away. In addition, ***** MdR is nestled in the heart of Silicon *****, “Southern California’s Silicon Valley,” and major corporate offices nearby include Google, YouTube, Microsoft, Hulu, Live Nation, Sony Pictures, and AEG.

Barbianca Local Kitchen

I wanted to have drinks and small bites for my 30th birthday with around 15 guest myself included. I immediately thought of the Barbianca Local *******. I've been to the Barbianca Local ******* for drinks with my co-worker in the past so I've grown accustom to the great customer service I received from the bartender Tammy. Well this visit the complete opposite, from the time I checked in for my reservation Joe G. had the worst attitude from someone I've ever encountered working in customer service. While giving the hostess my name to look up my reservation Joe interrupted her to say “We called you to confirm 4 times and no one picked up the phone”. When I asked the hostess to read back the number that was called, they had my telephone number off by a digit, and not once did Joe say I'm sorry for the mistake on our behalf. After that Joe continued to keep his attitude when he tells me that he can't seat us until 50% of the ***** was present. For as long as I've been living in West Los Angeles and surrounding areas there has always been traffic, especially on a Saturday evening when people are trying to enjoy their weekends off. To not stand in the middle of the restaurant I just told him to seat my ***** of 8 at the time and later when my other guest arrived we had to be inconvenienced while the staff moved more tables back over to our original section to make room for the guest that finally arrived. The drinks were great throughout the night thanks to Tammy, as was the food. But the service we received from our waiter Jefferson started off good but during the visit he slowly disappeared causing us to get up and get the pitcher from the side of the bar and refill our own water. We didn't know if Jefferson had gone on his break or **** for the evening, we had to ask another member of the wait staff to get him out the back to get our check. This was probably the last time I come to Barbianca Local *******, this was not a good experience.
