HOLLYWOOD, CA. (DEC. 19, 2012) – Sleek, intimate and designed for the Hollywood-bound traveler looking for a modernist attitude with a minimalist approach, The Moment is Sunset Boulevard’s newest boutique hotel and its moment to open is Feb.1, 2013. Set on Guitar Row across from the famed Guitar Center and featuring unobstructed views of the Hollywood Hills, The Moment is both intimate and distinctive. Featuring only 39 guest rooms and one suite – the hotel provides the perfect respite for business or leisure travelers looking for a hotel that is both unpretentious and eclectic; an experience that is as inviting as it is stylish and distinctive.
Organic in its architectural style, The Moment was designed using sloped and slanted walls, presenting the feeling of motion and movement. Guests will be encouraged to explore their surroundings and create their own unique, individual moments – whether it is enjoying chilled Sangria on the hotel’s 2000 square-foot deck overlooking Sunset Blvd. or walking across the street to explore the famous guitars adorning the walls of the Guitar Center or taking in the sights and sounds of the Hollywood experience.
Each of the boutique hotel’s 39 guest rooms provides a sense of comfort and tranquility while set in an urban design with a unique color palate. The Moment’s rooms feature accent walls painted orange, green or purple and provide guests with a distinct visual experience. Additionally, all rooms feature flat screen televisions, over-sized glass showers and unique graphics over the bed. Beyond the guest rooms sits the hotel’s most distinctive amenity, The Moment Deck & Bar. Stretching over 2000 square feet and located at the front of the hotel with views of the hills and Sunset Blvd., the deck will feature a bar and lounge-like atmosphere perfect for grabbing a cold drink, relaxing in the sun, people watching and sampling the hotel’s selection of fresh comfort food served tapas style. In addition to outdoor dining and imbibing on the deck, the hotel will provide 24 hour room service and features an intimate dining area for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The Moment is owned by the Hollywood Investment Group and managed by broughtonHOTELS. Broughton’s expertise in operations will ensure great customer service, but even more importantly, their commitment to the human experience will set The Moment apart from other hotels. “Our philosophy as a company permeates into our hotels, meaning we will deliver our guests a genuine and unique experience,” explains Dev Dugal, vice president of sales and marketing at broughtonHOTELS. “We believe The Moment brings something new and interesting to the Hollywood scene – it is intimate and features a strong design aesthetic; that is not something you usually see in a hotel of this size. Whether someone has just traveled a day from Europe or is just in for the night from San Francisco, they will feel our welcoming attitude the minute they enter the doors.”
Located on Sunset Boulevard, directly across the street from the Hollywood Guitar Center, The Moment opens on Feb. 1, 2013.
