The Fairmont San Francisco Proudly Presents Stunning Newly Renovated "Classic Meets Contemporary" Guest Rooms

Landmark Hotel Completes $21 Million Comprehensive Accommodations Update

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/09/14 -- Editors note: There are three photos associated with this press release.

Spring is splendid at The Fairmont San Francisco, where the iconic property, recently designated with an Expedia 5-star hotel rating, has unveiled a lauded $21 million guest room renovation. Led by ForrestPerkins, a U.S.-based interior architecture and design firm that specializes in luxury and notable hotels, resorts, spas and multi-residential projects, this comprehensive accommodation project has incorporated stylish new furnishings and interior touches. ForrestPerkins' efforts were steered by its local San Francisco office, where Clifford R. Tuttle (ASID, LEED AP, NEWH, Senior Vice President) manages the interior design practice.

"We are thrilled with the fantastic, fresh new look of the guest rooms. ForrestPerkins has skillfully blended vintage elements with contemporary touches to create a timeless San Francisco style," says Regional Vice President & General Manager of The Fairmont San Francisco, Tom Klein. "We have had wonderful feedback from guests who have experienced the renovated accommodations and look forward to continuing to provide memorable stays at our celebrated, flagship hotel."

The Fairmont San Francisco's 591 guest rooms and suites are situated in its historic Main Building and Tower Building, and these two distinct structures inspired the ForrestPerkins design team to produce a sophisticated, tailored look that pays homage to the hotel's storied history and famed architecture. The hotel showcases two new design schemes: The Main Building guest rooms feature a "jewel box" - inspired look, with bright sapphire blues and crisp accents of contemporary platinum and pewter. Shaw carpets are designed as a tone-on-tone floral paisley pattern, inspired by the lavish gardens on the grounds of the property. Each fabric is reminiscent of a men's suit, giving the room a bespoke, customized feel.

The Suites in the Main Building have been updated to complement the jewel box concept, with personalized sofas by JL Furnishings, stunning glass tables, and hand-blown floor lamps with a smoky grey ombre finish by Preciosa Lighting. Suites feature art inspired by the many musical performers who have graced the hotel's ballrooms and have sung about their love of San Francisco. The hotel's updated family-style larger room type and suite options now feature roomy pullout couches and enhanced seating areas that are ideal for multi-generational or group travelers.

The Tower Building guest rooms offer stunning views of the city, combined with a neutral color palette of warm taupe and cream lacquer accents of bright silver. Each room features stylish seating designed with a crown-shaped back, reminding guests that The Fairmont San Francisco sits proudly atop Nob Hill.

All guest rooms are equipped with features and amenities essential to the modern traveler, with several featuring a private pull-out bar by Cheng Meng that houses tea service and a glamorous mid-century dressing table with glass lamps, dressing stool and large vanity mirror. Visitors can also enjoy in-room artwork by local artists, which showcase the most striking sights of San Francisco. As visitors head to and from their rooms, they will enjoy custom corridor carpets by Crossley Carpets, designed to feature interwoven diamond and pearl medallions in bold sapphire, pewter and gold tones. In addition, the corridors showcase eye-catching images sourced by famed local photographer, Fred Lyon, who worked with ForrestPerkins and Studio EL to select stand-out photos from his 1940-50s San Francisco archives.

The Fairmont San Francisco, world-renowned for its commitment to service excellence and turning moments into memories, now adds a brilliant custom design experience to guests to promise a truly unforgettable stay.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
