Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf San Francisco and Chesapeake Lodging announce the completion of its multi-million dollar renovation. The debut includes the total redesign of the property’s 316 guestrooms, two dining outlets now called Brick & Beam and The Wardroom and a new design concept in the lobby and public spaces. The renovation of the property began late last fall and includes the transformation of the entire hotel. Located in San Francisco’s renowned Fisherman’s Wharf, the update adds a new dimension to the iconic area for visitors and locals alike.
The transformation of the hotel began with its lobby. Designed to reflect the historical lure of the city’s seaport, guests arrive in a chic, yet rustic space that serves as an ideal home base from which guests, both business and leisure, can explore. Stylish details of rustic wood grain insets reflect the Wharf’s piers, while large glass pendants offer generous lobby lighting, a playful nod to the ship deck lanterns used to illuminate the night sky. Textured fabrics featured on new seating arrangements, plus wood and metal finishing touches on tables and seats, remind guests of the city’s nautical culture, and embrace the personality of the Wharf.
Seaport inspiration continues in the hotel’s 316 renovated guestrooms and suites. Soothing tones of grey and blue complement the new, sleek yet comfortable furnishings. Throw pillows and wall sconces accented with silver and navy blue enhance the overall nautical feel. The furniture features a mix of rich texture and creative patterns. Guests on business or leisure will find the newly designed flexible workspace efficient as well as up-to-date. Bluetooth media hubs, conveniently positioned charging stations, and HDTVs add to the modern comforts, while contemporary artwork depicting nautical themes round out the aesthetic.
Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf San Francisco re-imagined both of its dining outlets, now called Brick & Beam and The Wardroom. Featuring seasonal and locally sourced menu items, diners will enjoy specialties that offer a taste of San Francisco.
Brick & Beam is designed and named to salute the city’s history. Once occupied by The Joseph Musto Marble Works Company, the company that provided materials for San Francisco’s City Hall, Public Library and Opera House, the new restaurant’s brick and steel façade is intact, while the interior of the space was redesigned using weathered elements and rugged materials reflecting the Wharf’s shipping industry. A design and gathering focal point, Brick & Beam’s oversized fireplace is made of oxidized metal to mirror the rusted hulls of ships passing by in the San Francisco Bay. New lighting fixtures incorporate pulleys and fishing equipment in their design; chairs backed with sailcloth, are a direct yet unexpected tribute to the city’s connection to sailing’s most heralded event, The America’s Cup.
The Wardroom, Hyatt Fisherman’s Wharf San Francisco’s new breakfast restaurant, offers diners a visual sense of arrival to the Bay Area. With the use of nautical blues and grey tones, complemented by rust-colored fabrics, The Wardroom brings the feel of the Bay indoors. The artwork nods to the local community’s boating and fishing industries.
Other renovation highlights include the remake of the hotel’s meeting and event space in 2012. Over 19,000 sq. ft. of function space serves groups and social events with various breakout rooms and ballroom configurations. The hotel’s pre-function space features a cozy fireplace, large skylight and cascading water fountain. Additionally, the hotel’s 24-hour Stay Fit™ Fitness Center is fully equipped with state-of-the-art exercise equipment including a Cardio Theater with flat screen TVs; an outdoor heated pool and whirlpool are available for guests use year-round.
