Margaritaville Hotel in San Diego to open in 2021

Pebblebrook Hotel Trust and Margaritaville Enterprises LLC announce the brand’s second west coast resort, The Margaritaville Hotel San Diego Gaslamp Quarter. The property is expected to open in 2021 in downtown San Diego, California.

Located in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter, just blocks from Petco Park and the San Diego Convention Center, the hotel will feature 235 guest rooms as well as signature Margaritaville food and beverage concepts. Travelers can immerse themselves in the excitement of the city while staying in a truly urban oasis of laidback luxury.

“We are excited to announce our second hotel in affiliation with Margaritaville in San Diego,” said Jon E. Bortz, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust. “The downtown location in San Diego’s famed Gaslamp Quarter will provide convention goers, leisure guests and corporate travelers a unique experience in very close proximity to the city’s dining, entertainment and retail venues. We look forward to taking advantage of this ever-growing lifestyle affiliation, while also benefiting from operating synergies we believe will assist in significantly lifting the financial performance of this extremely well-located asset. The Gaslamp Quarter property will be a terrific complement to our Margaritaville Island Resort San Diego which was announced last year.”

The site of the property is currently home to Solamar Hotel. Following extensive renovations and a full conversion of the existing hotel, estimated at approximately $20.0 million, the Margaritaville Hotel San Diego Gaslamp Quarter will feature spaces reflecting the Margaritaville state of mind.

Buffett’s new album to be called “Life on the Flip Side”

From Keys Weekly: “Buffett starts 2020 with impromptu show at Margaritaville

The whispered rumors started around midday on Jan. 18. They gathered steam throughout the afternoon and were proven true by 9 p.m., when Jimmy Buffett ducked under his guitar strap and nodded with a smile to members of his Coral Reefer Band.

The Margaritaville mogul took the stage at his own bar on Key West’s Duval Street for his first live performance of 2020.

Buffett and the band had been in Key West recording a new album, “Life on the Flip Side,” for release later this year.

The band played to a packed house of surprised tourists and in-the-know locals who had been on the receiving end of the day’s rumors. 

With songs that captured Key West’s simpler times, Buffett serenaded sun-loving locals with the lyrics that lured them here so many years ago, and gave the disbelieving visitors the vacation memories of a lifetime.
