Lido House, an Autograph Collection hotel, today announced a March 2018 opening. Nearing completion in Newport Beach, the resort is a stylish celebration of Southern California's coastal lifestyle, delivering the ultimate, authentic beach house retreat.
A legacy project by local developer Robert D. Olson, Lido House is set on the site of the former City Hall and pays homage to the historic landmark. The 130-guest room resort set on 100,000 square feet, is just steps away from Lido Marina Village, the city's marina, retail and dining hub. With its innovative culinary offerings and design features, Lido House will elevate the neighborhood's standing a must visit destination.
With interior design by the EDG team, the property will come to life with an effortless sense of style and reflects a welcoming beach house vibe, reminiscent of Robert Olson's own Newport Beach home. Truly embracing the home away from home concept, Lido House features five residential-style, three-level cottages spanning 1,300 square feet, including a rooftop patio, personal BBQ and fireplace. Each of the one-of-a-kind cottages feature a distinct and authentic design motif created by a different local designer: Grace Blu Design, Jennifer Mehditash Design, Brooke Wagner Designer, Erica Bryen Design and Blackband Design.
"At Lido House, nautical flair merges with Cape Cod-style architecture to capture the spirit, lifestyle and culture of the community," said Olson. "As the nexus of beach, marina and town, Lido House will be the geographic and emotional heart of the city, and a true partner in the community. In every sense, Lido House is Newport Beach, a lively celebration of our beloved coastal retreat."
Every element of the hotel comes together to establish Lido House as the new-old centerpiece of Newport Beach:
