Hotel Californian hiring 200 employees

Release Date: June 22,2017

In preparation for its summer opening, the Hotel Californian of 36 State St. is in the process of hiring some 200 people to run the 248,000-square-foot development.

Director of human resources Marianela Atencio told Noozhawk that roughly 60 positions still need to be hired. A second recruiting event will be held June 27 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Chase Palm Park Center, targeting retail, spa, housekeeping and culinary employees.

The Hotel Californian will be onboarding new hires at the end of July, Atencio said.

The finished product will be a complete reconstruction and expansion of the site’s once-dilapidated 1920s-era hotel.

The 121-room, Spanish Colonial-style hotel is maintaining the building’s original façade, and will feature a rooftop event deck and pool, paseos, gardens, plazas, fountains, a ballroom, meeting and event spaces, a fitness center, a fashion boutique and a “Moroccan-inspired” spa and salon.

The building on the original Hotel Californian site will be four stories tall and host 62 rooms, a deck, the spa and the fitness center. Two three-story Mason Street buildings will contain 58 rooms, the lobby and the fashion boutique.

Another building across State Street will feature a deck, a plaza lawn and a 1,700-square-foot presidential suite.
