G (for GREAT!) suite

G (for GREAT!) suite

San Francisco’s downtown Theater Row is now home to the cleverly renovated, Hotel G, a hip hotel offering without the slightest tinge of attitude. Their Union Square location make this an ideal lodging choice for a shopaholic girlfriend getaway, a romantic date night or for out-of-towners in search of a relaxing home base.

Originally built as The Fielding Hotel in 1909, the redesigned guest rooms perfectly marry something old (rustic cement or polished wood plank floors, reupholstered Victorian settees, antique school desks and chairs) with something new  (complimentary Wi-Fi, 42″ SMART TV, Nespresso coffee maker, Mascioni linens and robes, plush beds with tufted denim backboards and fair-trade hand woven rugs). Cool touches are scattered throughout, starting with your friendly welcome by  “G-Hosts”, happy to share insider sightseeing suggestions, as well as California-shaped bed pillows, and humorous floor signage: “Rumor has it that the ninth floor is divine”.  Fun happenings will include a free “Beer & Bites”, which will showcase two San Francisco classics: Anchor Steam beer and “G”-shaped pretzels made by Boudin Bakery.

The 153 suites range from Good Queen, Great King, Greater Double to Greatest King, but no matter which category you select, they are all comfy, cozy and very cool.  Additional conveniences will include a meeting room for casual get-togethers or formal board meetings, in-house eateries, complimentary morning car services and a Technogym.

Huge kudos to Hotel G for partnering with San Francisco-based Creativity Explored, a nonprofit arts center for developmentally disabled adults, to curate, showcase and sell artwork. A diverse mix of paintings, colorful ceramics, folk textiles, and mixed-media sculpture will adorn guestrooms. All of the artwork is available for sale, with proceeds going directly to the artist.
