SANTA YNEZ, CA – The Hadsten Solvang, a boutique hotel property located in the heart of Solvang, CA, has reopened. Under the ownership of the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, the hotel has undergone an extensive transformation and is a captivating addition to Hilton’s Tapestry Collection.
Formerly known as Hadsten House, the hotel has been thoughtfully rebranded as The Hadsten Solvang, Tapestry Collection by Hilton paying homage to the Hadsten railway in Denmark. Throughout the property, guests will find subtle hints and nods to recognize its rich history, including the hotel’s newly designed logo, featuring two prominent railroad spikes.
Tapestry Collection by Hilton represents an upscale portfolio of hotels that offer guests unique style and vibrant personality. Adorned with modern and trendy decor, The Hadsten Solvang brings a cool vibe to its authentic ambiance. The property is also part of Hilton Honors, the guest-loyalty program for Hilton’s hotel brands.
“We are delighted to reopen as a unique property within Hilton’s upscale portfolio,” said John Elliott, CEO for the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians. “The Hadsten Solvang, Tapestry Collection by Hilton balances an updated contemporary feel while appreciating the design and historical elements of Solvang.”
The extensive renovations commenced in September 2021 and encompassed a comprehensive room and property remodel. Notable changes include the transformation of the hotel’s indoor swimming pool area, allowing space for The Yard, a vibrant and trendy, contemporary outdoor courtyard with lounge furniture, heaters and games. Adjacent to The Yard is The Boiler Room, a bespoke lounge offering craft cocktails and a wide variety of food options. The hotel also now offers a new fitness center complete with Peloton stationary bikes and other amenities.
Located at 1450 Mission Drive in Solvang, the 74-room hotel was originally built in 1972 and bought by the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians in 2012. The tribe’s hospitality portfolio also includes two newly remodeled AAA Four Diamond-rated hotels: Chumash Casino Resort Hotel in Santa Ynez and Corque Hotel in Solvang. As the largest employer in the Santa Ynez Valley, the tribe employs more than 1,800 residents of Santa Barbara County.
