VENTURA, CALIF. OCTOBER 23, 2019
DKN Hotels, a premier Southern California hotel management company, announced today that The Pierpont Inn, located in Ventura, CA, will begin to operate as an independent hotel as of January 5, 2020. The decision to transition away from the Wyndham Garden brand is an outgrowth of DKN’s desire to provide a more authentic Ventura experience to each guest and a hotel stay distinguished by history, charm, warmth, and the purest elements of local flavor.
Built by famed L.A. architect Sumner P. Hunt in 1910, The Pierpont Inn is a historic craftsman-style hotel featuring 81 charming guestrooms, cottages, and suites. The hotel boasts spectacular views from atop its scenic ocean bluff, beautifully landscaped grounds, and the renowned Austen’s Restaurant – the oldest continuously operating restaurant in Ventura County. Over the last 100+ years, the hotel has been host to reunions, weddings, and other special events, often spanning generations of local area residents.
“The Pierpont Inn is foundational to the city of Ventura and an essential part of its very rich history,” said Ana Almada, vice president of operations at DKN Hotels. “We want our guests to feel more connected to the community and the century of memories that have been made here. We felt this could best be accomplished with the removal of the current Wyndham flag, and we are very excited to return to the purity of The Pierpont Inn as its own brand.”
DKN Hotels will continue to own and operate the property, so guests of the newly independent hotel can expect the same level of warm, personalized service they have been receiving at The Pierpont Inn as well as a uniquely local experience not offered at other Ventura hotels. The company is honored to return The Pierpont Inn to the soul of the community.
