Choose Matisse to Make Your Event the Party a Memorable One for You and Your Special Guests

The Ayers Hotel on Manhattan Beach combines the tropical atmosphere of warm and sunny Southern California with a signature design of old-world Europe. The classic elegance of the lobby extends into the Renaissance Ballroom and beyond to the guest rooms. It’s the ideal setting for bringing your team of co-workers or family members together in a warm, nostalgic holiday atmosphere.

Old World Charm, Contemporary Design

The magnificence of the hotel and stylish charm from the gold fixtures to the marble floor require little adornment. However, you’ll find the Ayers transformed into a tastefully-decorated winter wonderland for the holiday season. White lights on fichus provide a lovely glow among the hallmark holiday tree and other accents. The details of the venue are merely the preview of the sophistication in store for your event. The fine dining options by Matisse Restaurant feature seasonal and fresh delicacies interspersed throughout an extensive menu. A vast array of exquisite entrées, appetizers, fresh spring greens and irresistible desserts awaits your guests. The renowned Corporate Executive Chef Sherie DiBernardo, along with her exceptional catering staff, will help you craft a menu suitable for the size and tone of your special occasion. Signature dishes such as the Pan Seared Sea Bass with Sweet Chili Soy Glaze, or Garam Masala Chicken Breast Seared Salmon with Lemon Thyme Beurre Blanc can be plated for each individual, served as part of a grand buffet or as a combination. Additional features include passed hot and cold hors d’oeuvres and a carving station. We feature afternoon tea, and brunch and lunch options are also available to accommodate your needs.
