The 225-guestroom hotel will feature 19-ft.-tall ceilings in the lobby and library; 14,600-sq.-ft. suites; guestrooms with custom furniture and lighting with several hand-worked finishes, gray accent walls, stitched leather furniture, and shibori crafted cloths; a new lobby bar with Japanese-inflection and Bay Area bar snacks; a 3,000-sq.-ft. fitness center and 400-sq.-ft. yoga studio; and a designated floor with 13,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event space.
All 156 tower rooms will be completed in September, while the 69 garden rooms, including the suites, will be completed in November.
