The Homewood Suites and the associated Garden Conference Center were constructed directly adjacent to the existing 7-story Hilton Garden Inn that KLA designed several years earlier. The Homewood Suites has an extensive courtyard space with a pool, outdoor lounge area, sport court, outdoor kitchen, and passive recreation areas. The plantings reflect the lush and tropical environment of the California coast. There is also a large conference center that is integrated into the surrounding lush and dense landscape to create a fully enclosed Garden Center. French doors and associated garden patio spaces allow the conference center to open up and take advantage of the climate and surrounding palms, bougainvillea, and tropical-theme plants.
