Clearstone Coating reached out to the Beverly Hills Hotel when they first arrived in the US. They were cold calling high-end hotels to spread the word about Clearstone. The cold call came at an opportune time as the hotel was undergoing a large-scale renovation, and part of that renovation was addressing acid-etching and staining issues with their marble furniture. The hotels project director was looking for a long-term solution to protect the hotel’s marble.
Stone bathroom vanities are a concern for most hotels with marble and other natural stone vanity tops. Natural stone vanities typically have severe acid-etching and staining issues which are addressed over and over again via traditional restoration and polishing. However, restoring and polishing vanities in 214 rooms several times per year becomes a costly exercise. Langham Place considered the long-term benefits of applying Clearstone Coating versus traditional stone restoration, and invested in Clearstone to protect their natural stone vanities.
Just like its sister property, Beverly Hills Hotel, Hotel Bel-Air was looking for a long term solution to protect their natural stone pieces against acid-etching and staining. Clearstone is currently working on a 100-room renovation at the Hotel Bel-Air.
Clearstone was contacted by the team who installed the stunning 90ft2, white carrara marble bar top at the Grey Goose Bar prior to the venue’s hard launch. The team and the owners were concerned about acid-etching and staining with respect to lemons, limes, wine, and other items that would typically damage natural stone. Clearstone completed the project in record time to ensure the bar was protected for the launch, and of course, well into the future with the 10-year manufacturer’s warranty against etching and staining protecting this investment.
Graton Resort & Casino’s engineering department contacted Clearstone regarding a travertine bar and a marble they wanted to have coated with Clearstone. Both bars were fairly new installations, but had already begun to acid-etch and stain – even before the launch of the new venues.
A team of two Clearstone applicators worked diligently to complete the bars for Graton Resort & Casino in record time. The 160ft2 marble Lobby Bar and the 150ft2 travertine Poolside Bar were ready for launch.
