Goodbye Courtyard by Marriott, hello DoubleTree by Hilton. (And hello fresh cookie at check-in!) The Hotel MdR in Marina del Rey made the change to DoubleTree about a year ago, but symbolically the transition was marked by the completion of a huge makeover to the hotel's exterior and communal spaces, which finished up this past June. The hotel's outer faces, plus the lobby, bar, restaurant, and outdoor spaces have all been "refreshed" by Mar Vista-based design firm Indidesign, which looked to give the space a beachy, SoCal feel, says a rep for the Hotel MdR.
