SAN DIEGO, CA (September 18, 2017) — Hotel Republic San Diego is slated to make its debut in mid-October as downtown’s newest boutique luxury hotel property within Marriott International’s distinctive repertoire of Autograph Collection Hotels. Located at 421 West B Street in the heart of downtown’s bustling civic district, Hotel Republic will capture the essence of one of the country’s most beloved coastal cities—providing guests an insider experience of San Diego through unique artisans, immersive amenities and local culinary talent.

A NOTABLE HISTORY IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN | Hotel Republic stands on the historic site of the original San Diego Steam Laundry company building, which was built by Swedish immigrants in the late nineteenth century. The location itself is a proud symbol of innovation, grit, and determination. Now in 2017, following a top-to-bottom renovation—and a deliberate transformation from the former W Hotel to the Renaissance San Diego Hotel by owner Rockpoint Group and management company, HEI Hotels & Resorts—Hotel Republic will help to transform the surrounding area into San Diego’s social and business hub.

TAPPING LOCAL CULINARY TALENT | Hotel Republic is partnering with a San Diego-based hospitality firm to develop three distinct dining experiences within the hotel: Topside Terrace Kitchen & Bar, Trade, and Patio Marketplace. Executive Chef, Amol Thanky is implementing an everything-made-in-house credo and a menu of sustainably sourced, seasonal ingredients.

DESIGN SNAPSHOT | Epitomizing the independent spirit represented on the Golden State’s flag, Hotel Republic is a tastemaker’s sweet spot for business travel and a bold beacon for trendsetters, food lovers, and well-connected locals. The 19-story, 258-room hotel offers an ambience of casual sophistication.

Hotel Republic’s creative coastal expression extends into 16,000 square feet of flexible event and meeting space, the VIP Marriott Rewards Veranda Lounge, as well as the hotel’s expansive guestrooms—which range from a luxurious 1,250 square foot presidential suite to the city view king rooms and doubles.

Hotel Republic is located at 421 West B Street in downtown San Diego, CA. Currently under operation as a Renaissance San Diego Hotel, once the final stages of renovation are complete in early October, the property will see a full rebrand and transition to Hotel Republic. This will be Autograph Collection’s second independent hotel in San Diego, joining the Pier South Resort in Imperial Beach.  For more information on Hotel Republic, please visit
