PORT ANGELES, Washington, January 14, 2016— Domaine Madeleine enters the final stages of its updating as the premiere luxury bed and breakfast on the scenic Olympic Peninsula with a new responsive website and completion of room renovations across the property.
“Recognizing that guests are demanding more personalized experiences that reflect the unique sense of place at a destination,” Stephen Fofanoff, Innkeeper said. “We decided that our 25th anniversary was a good time to look at everything we do from a guest’s perspective and make improvements from the ground up.”
The website at http://domainemadeleine.com got a complete overhaul to better showcase the beauty of the destination as well as provide easier access for guests to find the information they need to book a reservation, explore the area, or plan their itinerary.
The rooms, formerly with French and Asian names, received the final touches of renovations (expected completion in early February 2016), and new names to better reflect the unique sense of place and to honor the 40th anniversary of Olympic National Park being recognized as an International Biosphere Reserve and the 35th anniversary of the park being a UNESCO World Heritage Site, along with the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.
“There is a lot to celebrate in 2016, from the National Park Service and Olympic National Park’s anniversaries to our own 25th anniversary,” Fofanoff said. “After being the first luxury bed and breakfast in the area, the timing seemed right to reinvent the inn for a new generation.”
The inn’s new names better reflect the natural beauty of the Peninsula, and the main sites that guests are visiting: Hurricane Ridge Suite, Hoh Rainforest Suite, Lake Crescent Suite, Rialto Beach Cottage, and Sol Duc Falls Cottage. Inside, the comfortable guestrooms received significant upgrades and updating across the entire property.
The Ming Dynasty Suite becomes the Hurricane Ridge Suite with updated new furnishings, paint, in-room dining set, and artwork including a breath-taking hand-painted mural of the room’s namesake subalpine mountain ridge by resident artist Chris Warnock. The Renoir Library Suite becomes the Hoh Rainforest Suite with new artwork, murals and rugs, a new in-room dining site, and updated backlit LED bathroom mirror. The Monet Garden Suite is renamed the Lake Crescent Suite with a new spa-inspired bathroom with aqua colored glass tiles reminiscent of the mineral-infused glacial water of Lake Crescent itself. The Rendezvous Suite becomes the Rialto Beach Cottage, separate from the main house, receiving a beach-sand colored bathroom upgrade with new shower, tub, and vanity with LED backlit mirror. The Woodland Cottage is reinvented from the ground up as the Sol Duc Falls Cottage, nestled among an old growth forest near our own re-creation of the falls, receives new flooring, ceiling, paint, completely new bathroom with step-down spa shower and reclaimed wood accents reminiscent of the browns and grays of the forested waterfall itself.
Domaine Madeleine launched a two-year updating strategy in 2014 built around the new brand inspiration of “a year-round luxury bed and breakfast inspired by nature”. The completion of these updates bring the brand full circle from its founding as the first luxury inn on the Olympic Peninsula to an Asian-inspired natural garden oasis set among an old growth forest to the reinvention of the luxury bed and breakfast as a reflection of its natural surroundings for a new generation of travelers seeking comfortable luxury emphasizing their desire for immersive, personalized travel experiences.
