San Francisco's Most Colorful Hotel Reveals A Playful Twist on Classic and Modern San Francisco Iconography
SAN FRANCISCOâ (July 2012) â From every corner of the city's seven-by-seven mile footprint, San Francisco evokes an independent spirit and sense of individuality that comes alive in Kimpton's newly re-designed Hotel Triton.
Capturing a sense of creativity, inclusion, and inspiration for which the city is best known, Hotel Triton's 141 guestrooms have been redesigned with a fresh and playful take on San Francisco iconography, both classic and contemporary. With its central location, The Triton is just steps away from Union Square, Chinatown and Downtown San Francisco making it the perfect choice for business and leisure travelers alike.
No one better embodies the independent spirit of the city of San Francisco than Jack Kerouac. As you enter the new guestrooms, your eye will be immediately drawn to the wallpaper that features the inspired words of the storied author. âAll human beings are also dream beings. Dreaming ties all mankind together.â The design is inspired from quotes like this, penned by Kerouacâall of which promote creativity, imagination and individuality. And it doesn't end thereâ guests will be charmed and surprised as all of the details unfold before their eyes. The soothing palette of sage green wainscoting and cream finishes is perfectly complemented by the bright yellow lacquer headboard, creating a Boho-chic vibe throughout the new guestrooms.
In true Kimpton fashion, local design elements abound throughout, including the infamous red dragon from the Chinatown gates, located directly across the street from the hotel, that can be found tattooed in varying places on the guestroom walls. Guests interested in relishing in their inner-beatnik can also indulge in the works of Kerouac's On the Road or Allen Ginsberg's Howl, found on their bedside table. Additional design elements, which lend itself to this artful era, include a rustic yet contemporary sawhorse desk, chalkboard message board, and industrial-style lighting.
Extending the creative exploration guests will discover in the newly re-designed guestrooms, local poets, musicians, artists, and performers will encourage guests to tap into their inner artist during the hotel's evening wine hour. Additionally, the hotel also features a rotating monthly art gallery on the mezzanine level where guests can purchase local artwork.
The hotel has long been a favorite place to call home for musicians, bands and guests looking for a quintessential San Francisco experience like no other. In addition to the 141 guestrooms, Hotel Triton also features a number of celebrity suites designed by comedian Kathy Griffin, Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead and Haagen Dazs for those guests with a sweet tooth.
