Three hotels approved for Oceanside-Carlsbad border near lagoon

Oceanside has approved plans in the works for more than 10 years to build three Hilton-brand hotels up to six stories tall with a total of 426 rooms along the Buena Vista Creek and lagoon near the city’s border with Carlsbad.

Construction is still probably two years away, city officials said, but when complete the project will include a four-story parking structure, restaurants, banquet and meeting rooms, pools, spas and other amenities. The main entrance will be from Jefferson Avenue, just south of state Route 78, with secondary access from a bridge to be built across the creek connecting the hotels to the Ring Road at the Shoppes at Carlsbad mall.

The Oceanside Planning Commission voted 5-1 last week to approve the project, with one member absent and Commissioner Kyle Krahel opposed.

Krahel said he could not support the plan because it will create excessive greenhouse gas emissions, which have

8 Luxury Hotels and Resorts Welcoming Guests Back With Safety and Social Distancing In Mind

Summer is in full swing, and you know what that means — so are vacations. But only socially distanced ones, of course. And with safety being the primary concern for travel in the midst of a pandemic, travelers are now taking extra precautions when it comes to how they travel, and of course, where they stay.

With hotels serving as the primary option for domestic and international getaways (for those who will allow us, of course), it’s important to know the ones who make luxury and safety the biggest priorities. Because what’s the point of sacrificing either if you’re finally going to leave your home? So, the next time you visit a hotel, expect big changes for procedures around cleaning.

Here are a few hotels safely welcoming back guests, without the sacrifice of amenities, friendly hospitality and luxury accommodations.

To make cleaning easier after guests’ departure, all remote controls have been wrapped in plastic.

The country’s borders remain closed to international tourists and plans for an aviation “bubble” with other nations continue to sputter.

Thailand’s tourism sector, which contributes close to 15% of its GDP according to the World Bank, has been severely impacted.

For the moment, domestic travelers are infusing some much-needed cash into the ailing industry. Thailand hasn’t reported a locally transmitted Covid-19 infection in more than 50 days, giving travelers a sense of security as they hit the road.

Though destinations like Koh Samui and Phuket continue to suffer from the lack of overseas visitors, resort towns within driving distance of Bangkok are taking advantage of locals’ urge to

Resort offers visitors ‘a room with a zoo’ – WISH-TV | Indianapolis News | Indiana Weather

(CNN) — Ever wanted to wake up to a walrus?

At the Pairi Daiza Resort, visitors can do just that. Named the Best Zoo in Europe by the Diamond Themepark Awards in 2019, the resort is located about an hour’s drive from Brussels in Brugelette.

Those who decide to stay at the park overnight can choose from a variety of accommodations located on the east end of the park, in areas (or “worlds”) called The Last Frontier and The Land of the Cold.

The resort offers 100 rooms with eight different themes and wildlife views.

Guestroom views look upon wildlife such as wolves and bears, sea lions, Siberian tigers, penguins, polar bears and walruses.

The stays in the Land of the Cold include The Walrus House, where the rooms evoke the feeling of sleeping in a snow cave, with a glass partition that looks directly into the walrus’s aquatic habitat.

WATCH NOW: Hard-hit hotels still below 50% staffing levels after ‘worst economic impact the industry has ever faced’ | Northwest Indiana Business Headlines

Hard-hit hotels remain below 50% staffing levels nationwide, and are lobbying for COVID relief.

The tourism industry contributes $980.7 million in spending a year to the Lake County economy, generates an additional $695.6 million in annual economic impact, and supports 14,411 jobs, according to a recent study by Rockport Analytics. About 60 hotels operates in Lake, Porter, and LaPorte counties, offering 4,000 rooms in Lake County alone.

Nationwide, the leisure and hospitality sector has lost more jobs than construction, manufacturing, retail, education and health services combined during the pandemic. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates it has lost 4.8 million jobs since February, making it “the worst economic impact the industry has ever faced.”

“Our industry was among the first impacted by the pandemic and will be one of the last to recover. We are a major economic driver, supporting millions of jobs and generating billions in tax revenue. Getting

AP Exclusive: Migrant kids held in hotels in Texas and Arizona, then expelled – News – Austin American-Statesman

HOUSTON (AP) — The Trump administration is detaining immigrant children as young as 1 in hotels, sometimes for weeks, before deporting them to their home countries under policies that have effectively shut down the nation’s asylum system during the coronavirus pandemic, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.

A private contractor for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is taking children to three Hampton Inn & Suites hotels in Arizona and at the Texas-Mexico border, where they are typically detained for several days, the records show. The hotels have been used nearly 200 times, while more than 10,000 beds for children sit empty at government shelters.

Federal anti-trafficking laws and a two-decade-old court settlement that governs the treatment of migrant children require that most kids be sent to the shelters for eventual placement with family sponsors. But President Donald Trump’s administration is now immediately expelling people seeking asylum in the

Japan will still mark the day originally scheduled for the opening ceremony with a national holiday. But there will be little to celebrate amid continued uncertainty over the feasibility of a revamped staging of the Games next year.

Dylan Crain, a resident of Tampa, Florida who had tickets to attend Friday’s opening event, said he’d be less willing to go to a Games currently rescheduled to start on July 23, 2021.

“We’d meticulously made a timeline, set up everything and were happy with our accommodations,” said Crain, who helped plan the trip for a group of 12. “Now, rescheduling all of that, in a compressed
