Gettys Opens New Office in Irvine, California
Leading Hospitality Design Firm Celebrates
Second New Office in Two Years
CHICAGO – January 22, 2007 – Award-winning design and fulfillment firm Gettys celebrated the opening of a new office this month in Irvine, Calif.  This is the second expansion office for Gettys in the last two years, adding to their resources headquartered in Chicago and their newly expanded offices in Miami, which opened in 2005.

Continued growth and activity in the lodging industry kept Gettys busy this year, with a diverse portfolio of projects including luxury and boutique properties, mixed-use developments, resorts, and branded hotels.  The Irvine office will focus on serving clients and projects on the west coast and Hawaii, and will bring additional resources to the firm’s clients across the country.

“We are excited to bring our collaborative and client-focused design and fulfillment expertise to the West Coast to better serve our existing clients in that region and reach those that we’ve not had the opportunity to work with before,” says Daniel Welborn, Gettys’ Vice President and principal of the new Irvine office.  The office has enjoyed an exciting and active start, already bidding on nearly a dozen projects in the past several months and beginning work on at least two in the next several weeks.

California and the western US seaboard represent a strong market for the lodging industry; in early 2006, California’s lodging market outperformed the overall US market.  During the fall months, California actually saw growth in occupancy while the rest of the country’s rates began to dip slightly.   Hawaii saw more than 13% increases in both ADR and RevPar during 2006 as well.

Gettys’ Irvine office can be reached at 949.892.2500 or via email at
