VENTURA and IRVINE, Calif., June 25, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — DKN Hotels, a premier Southern California hotel management company, has officially been selected to manage the historic Clocktower Inn Ventura. With a strong set of core company values, a philosophy of integrity and balance, and a 35+ year history of accomplishment in the hospitality industry, DKN Hotels will apply its vision for success to the Clocktower Inn, helping it thrive in the Ventura market.
Located in the heart of historic Downtown Ventura adjacent to Mission San Buenaventura, Clocktower Inn Ventura was refashioned from a 1940’s era California Spanish-style firehouse and clocktower in 1985 by San Francisco-area designer Tom Brooks. The property boasts 50 richly decorated guestrooms reminiscent of the American Southwest with a lobby featuring original art, beamed ceilings, handsome furnishings and a large fireplace. Over 2,600 square feet of flexible meeting and event space – most notably a unique, sky lit atrium – is available for weddings and corporate or social events, while onsite restaurant Blue Agave offers guests a convenient dining option. These many amenities will assist in the realization of DKN’s vision of a revitalized and prosperous property wholly committed to an exceptional guest experience.
“Clocktower Inn is an amazing place and the perfect platform to display the DKN Hotels approach to managing hotels,” said DKN Hotels Director of Strategic Development, Jorge Azpeitia. “DKN is honored to bring a hotel with such a rich history back to prominence. Everything needed to deliver an outstanding guest experience is there, and we will do our part to ensure guests feel the difference.”
That difference will be first felt when guests encounter the new general manager of the hotel, Brett Thomas. With 11 years of on-property hotel experience and a desire to position Clocktower Inn Ventura as the top boutique hotel in Downtown Ventura, Mr. Thomas hopes to provide a true home away from home experience and “here for you” sentiment for guests and team members alike.
Along with Mr. Thomas’ new tenure, the continued application of DKN Hotels’ fundamental values, as well as ongoing operations support, guidance, strategy, and training, will ensure the success of the Clocktower Inn Ventura.
