DKN Hotels, a premier hotel management company built on a philosophy of integrity and balance, is pleased to welcome the Beachfront Inn & Suites at Dana Point to its family of managed hotels. With a storied history of accomplishment in hotel investment, development, and management operations, DKN Hotels looks forward to implementing its time-tested formula for success with this property.
Built in 1993, the Beachfront Inn & Suites at Dana Point is an independent, 33-room beachfront boutique hotel located between San Clemente and Dana Point. Spectacular ocean views and spacious guestrooms are staples of the property, and locals have long visited for the sense of escape it provides. The property recently became an independent hotel, as the current owner, Rachel Nasre, realized that a larger brand would restrict the hotel’s ability to realize its two greatest values – the view and location. With expert vision, Rachel has given the Beachfront Inn & Suites at Dana Point new life by remodeling the hotel her father built and rebranding it as an upscale boutique hotel. This allows for a more home like, comfortable and customized stay for guests.
“Dropping the flag and positioning the Beachfront Inn & Suites as an upscale, boutique hotel was a smart move by Rachel and her father,” said Jorge Azpeitia, Director of Strategic Development at DKN Hotels. “It enabled them to have the freedom to design and take advantage of the beachfront location and the views. With DKN Hotels at the helm, we are excited to bring our expertise to this operation. Rachel provided the product. DKN will provide the service and operational efficiency that will result in higher ADRs and greater NOI.”
The DKN team looks forward to applying DKN Hotels’ fundamental values to this new partnership with the Beachfront Inn & Suites at Dana Point while also providing the ongoing operations support, guidance, strategy and training critical to a hotel’s success in the hospitality industry.
