W San Francisco is an electric urban oasis located in the heart of the city. Boasting 401 guest rooms including 12 suites, the hotel offers a hip and stylish downtown retreat. Skylab was enlisted to design the guest rooms and major amenity spaces for a multi-phased renovation including meeting and event spaces, as well as the gym (the hotel lobby is slated for the next phase). The Gold Fever design draws its inspiration from the city’s remarkable and rich history, abstracting elements from the past and present—including a healthy dose of funky elements from its psychedelic days—to marry history and culture with the hotel experience. The design features a bespoke aesthetic that is relaxed and appropriate for sleep, work, and lounging.
