SAN FRANCISCO (January 14, 2013) – Viceroy Hotel Group announces the launch of Hotel Zetta San Francisco, a dynamic hub where work and relaxation co-exist. The 116 room hotel is positioned in the iconic convergence of SoMa, Mid-Market, and Union Square. An extensive transformation is underway, with Hotel Zetta’s opening scheduled for February 2013 marking the first significant new opening in the San Francisco hotel landscape since 2008.
Acquired as the former Hotel Milano in early 2012 by Pebblebrook Hotel Trust, the property is managed by Viceroy Hotel Group and being introduced as part of the Group’s Urban Retreat Collection. The hotel, ready to create positive disruption in the hotelscape of San Francisco, will become the most relevant enclave in the city for savvy travelers, culture seekers and localists looking for stylish accommodations and dynamic gathering spaces to work and play. In a city of bold contrasts and timeless originals, Hotel Zetta stands out. The witty fusion of yesterday and tomorrow will lure discerning tastes from around the globe, as well as leaders from SoMa’s thriving tech, fashion, and art communities.
Conceived by world renowned and award winning Seattle-based hospitality interior design firm Dawson Design Associates, Inc., the hotel incorporates eclectic and sustainable architecture, technological and recycled elements, and upscale ultramodern chic furnishings. “Our goal with Hotel Zetta is to create a rejuvenating environment,” said Sheehan. “Every aspect of the hotel is designed to feel playful and distinct, yet productive and work-conducive.”
Hotel Zetta San Francisco, originally built in 1913, will open in late February 2013, celebrating the 100th year of the building’s existence. “The property creatively blends recycled and reused materials into its design, resulting in something entirely new and exciting,” said Benjamin Duverge, General Manager of Hotel Zetta. “By combining these innovative design features with unique programming, our guests will have an unparalleled experience.”
Not accepting of any mediocrity, Hotel Zetta has established an unparalleled culinary partnership which it will officially announce in the coming weeks. Slated to open later this year, the concept will offer a refreshing approach embodying a true San Francisco culinary experience.
