The Hyatt Regency San Francisco is taking advantage of its location across the street from the city’s iconic The Embarcadero waterfront and Ferry Building, overlooking the San Francisco Bay, by launching 15 new guestrooms with premium water views.
These newly introduced guestrooms feature panoramic views of the San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge, historic Ferry Building and Treasure Island that encourage guests to sit and gaze out onto the glistening water. The new guestrooms are suited for today’s traveler, blending high-style and high-tech features with convenience and comfort.
“The design was highly inspired by and took advantage of the surrounding views: San Francisco Bay, The Ferry Building, and the Bay Bridge,” said Magdalena Laska, designer, Looney & Associates. “Modern minimalism sets the tone in the room. Functional furnishings and clever storage were thoughtfully designed to utilize the available space. The color palette is light and neutral with contrasting accents to create visual interest without detracting from the showstopper in the room, which is the breathtaking view of the bay. The accent wall color is inspired by the blue hues of the ocean, and the vertical and angled elements of the art installation above the headboard hint at the suspension cables and towers of the nearby Bay Bridge.”
The room’s smart design makes strategic use of the cozy, 185-sq.-ft. space, complete with interior details that are purposefully incorporated within a compact footprint. “The design goal of the space was to create a functional, fresh and inviting atmosphere for the guest that takes full advantage of the beautiful view,” she said. “The design is full of amenities within a compact footprint. Unique storage solutions include under-bed drawers, ample open shelving and a versatile open closet system. The flexible luggage bench doubles as guest seating. Lighting incorporated into the architecture and furniture allows for additional usable surfaces at nightstands and desks.”
Guests staying in a Water View room will experience high-tech amenities at their convenience including a wide variety of “smart” features that offer seamless services. Amazon’s Alexa is exclusively integrated into the new rooms with voice-activated controls to alter thermostats, lighting and shades. A virtual concierge will be available with streamlined voice commands assisting guests with tasks such as contacting the valet or ordering in room dining. Additional technology amenities offered in the rooms include a 65-in. TV with integral backlight, a soundbar, desk lamps with charging ports, and electric bathroom mirrors.
