Described as vogue, chic, retrofuturistic, and even neo-baroque, this Kimpton Group property is whimsy at its boutique-hotel best. The completely renovated lobby features a 360-degree mural by emerging artist Kari Pei (yes, from that Pei family-she's I. M. Pei's daughter-in-law) that relates the history of San Francisco and Triton. The funky-fun (if not a wee bit too small) designer suites named after musicians and artists like Jerry Garcia, Wyland (the ocean artist), and Santana, along with all the other rooms, are eco-friendly, featuring filtered water and air, all-natural linens, recycle trash cans, and water conservation fixtures. Even the cleaning products used in the hotel are environmentally sensitive to please the tree-hugger in all of us. All the rooms include modern touches like armoires hiding Sony flatscreen TVs and iPod iH5 docking stations that double as clock radios. Not to be outdone, the fitness center touts DirecTV in the cardio machines.
The hotel serves coffee and tea each morning, and freshly baked cookies at 3 and 8pm. Wine, tarot readings, and chair massages are available each evening (included in the room rate) in the lobby. The bustling and casual Café de la Presse has a cool French cafe vibe but overpriced food.
