The Breakers Hotel in Long Beach, California, is to be redeveloped by owners Pacific6, and will be branded as Fairmont The Breakers, Long Beach.

Originally opened in the 1920s, The Breakers was a sought-after destination for celebrities and dignitaries, including Elizabeth Taylor, Cary Grant, Babe Ruth and Clark Gable, among other Hollywood stars. The historic property is currently undergoing a significant restoration and redevelopment, and is scheduled to reopen in 2023.

The reimagined Fairmont The Breakers, Long Beach will feature high-end accommodations and amenities, including 185 boutique hotel rooms and suites; a rooftop pool and terrace overlooking the Terrace Theater Plaza; an open-air rooftop lounge and bar with 360-degree views of the Pacific Ocean and Los Angeles basin; a lavish two-story spa, wellness and fitness centre; a live jazz club and music lounge; and more than 12,000sq ft of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting and function space. The hotel’s culinary program will include five innovative F&B venues, including the reopening of the famed Sky Room restaurant.

“We are honoured to play a role in the exciting redevelopment of Fairmont The Breakers, Long Beach. Fairmont and Accor are committed to growing our unique collection of hotels in the region, and we are thrilled to add this landmark property to our North American portfolio,” said Heather McCrory, CEO, Accor North & Central America.
