SAN FRANCISCO, The Brandman Agency is pleased to announce The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco as the newest addition to its worldwide luxury travel and lifestyle portfolio. Recently named one of the Top Large City Hotels in the Continental U.S. in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards for 2014 and the recipient of the prestigious AAA Five-Diamond award of excellence for 20 consecutive years, The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco is poised to add a new chapter to its storied history as it embarks on a multi-phase renovation – including a reimagination of the hotel’s grand event spaces, guest rooms, and suites – slated for completion in March 2015.
Situated in the heart of downtown San Francisco, The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco is set within an historic city landmark building, located in the prestigious and scenic neighborhood of lower Nob Hill. Bordering the city’s Financial District, Chinatown, and Union Square luxury shopping, the nine-story hotel commands an entire block of Stockton Street. The hotel features 336 spacious guestrooms and 60 suites including two Presidential Suites, two food & beverage outlets including critically-acclaimed Parallel 37, and over 23,000 square feet of meeting space. The award-winning Ritz-Carlton Club® Level features exclusive access to the Club Lounge with unique weekend offerings such as the Club Vintner Wine Series, Caviar Cart, and house-made Candy Cart.
“We’re thrilled to welcome The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco to The Brandman Agency family,” says Melanie Brandman, Founder and CEO of The Brandman Agency. “The transformative renovation of this iconic hotel will offer travelers the quintessential San Francisco luxury experience with its historic exterior, new modern interior, meticulous service, and thoughtful amenities designed to inspire life’s most meaningful journeys.”
Led by the world’s largest hospitality design firm in the world, Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), the classic architectural form of The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco – a beloved city landmark for 105 years – will be carried through its interiors and contemporized with sleek, modern detailing. The dramatic fog of San Francisco and couture fashion will inspire the new design of the guestrooms, reborn in a palette of steely blues, greys and silvers. Simplistic and uncluttered interiors will showcase contemporary furniture and art, while drawing in the natural light and showcasing city vistas. Re-imagined event spaces will radiate glamour and drama with lavish black and white carpeting, mirrored walls with geometric patterns, and Bavarian crystal chandeliers surrounded by circular shades. The renovation will update the classic ornamentation with a distinctly modern feel, making The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco the ideal destination for meetings, conferences, weddings, and events for next generation luxury travelers.
