SAN FRANCISCO— The San Francisco Marriott Marquis recently finished a $90 million, 10-year revitalization project that upgraded amenities and design throughout the hotel.
The first phase of the project modernized all public spaces, including the lobby and all dining spots. Meeting rooms were refreshed along with the ceiling of the Golden Gate Ballroom being raised to offer a more grand space to hold meetings or conferences. The second-floor atrium was remodeled to create a better flow between all of the rooms, adding 10 breakouts and a 5,000-square-foot foyer with dramatic skylights.
All 1,500 guestrooms were overhauled in the final phase of the project.
“We are so proud of our new hotel,” said Frank Manchen, director of sales and marketing. “Everything was replaced, and our fabulous new look better reflects the modern elegance of our great city. We are known around the world for incredible service, and this renovation just ups the ante and provides a higher quality of comfort for our guests.”
Renovations in the 1,362 rooms and 138 suites included new wall covering, carpets, and drapery as well as light fixtures and seating. New Internet cabling in all rooms allows for faster surfing speeds, while consoles allow guests to plug in their laptops so that the new 32-inch flat-screen LCD TVs can be used as a monitor.
Amenities and features of the hotel include three locally inspired dining options, a fitness center, indoor pool, spa, and 117,000 square feet of meting space.
