Almansor Court, with its ongoing renovations, can best be described as a butterfly emerging from its cocoon. More than $4.5 million is being spent on updating and beautifying the entire facility. Already the gazebo, Lakeview Room, and Palm Court have been updated, and the difference is amazing. These beautified event spaces feature new retractable glass patios, sound systems, chandeliers, carpeting, and lighting.
But the most impressive feature of all is the improved views of the beautiful green parks, the lake with its wildlife, the expansive golf course, and the majestic San Gabriel Mountains beyond. The rooms have been opened up to showcase the beauty of the surroundings.
The brand new outdoor gazebo, so popular for weddings, has had the formerly sloping ground leveled out for ease of banquet and event seating, and a new meandering pathway studded with LED lights magically illuminates the way there at dusk.
In the Palm Court room, home to the best Sunday brunch around, interior walls have been removed to offer every table a view of Alhambra’s most luxurious green space. Exterior windows can be slid open so that fresh air can circulate throughout the room.
There is more to do. The front and entrance of Almansor Court will next be updated and beautified. Then the west facing banquet rooms will receive the elegant treatment that is now showcased in the east facing rooms that have already been completed.
If you have not been to Sunday brunch here recently, its time. Be prepared for an entirely new and pleasant experience. You are going to like it. Be sure your chair faces in the direction of the magnificent view that is now available. Stay tuned for more improvements to Alhambra’s most important event center.
