SAN FRANCISCO, CA (JUNE 12, 2018) – Hotel G and renowned designer Gulla Jónsdóttir are turning up the heat in San Francisco’s hotel market with the addition of three brand new penthouses. The Grande Penthouse and the two G Terrace Penthouses all boast private terraces – and they’re unlike anything the city has seen before.
Inspired by the male and female forms, the sleek spaces are a perfect blend of feminine and masculine. Soft curves and hard edges fuse throughout the rooms with the use of raw materials including Dalmata marble, distressed concrete-like walls, brass, floor-to-celling wood shelving, and whitewashed oak flooring. Elegant custom-designed furnishings, Italian lighting, and a dramatic color palette of black, white, and grey complete the look.
“San Francisco is the most European city in the United States, and these penthouses epitomize that sophistication,” says Icelandic-born Jónsdóttir. “My vision was to create a pied-à-terre where guests are swept into a world of sensual design that begs for champagne all day.”
The open flow of these indoor/outdoor spaces easily lends to an intimate evening or a cocktail party. Expansive terraces with sweeping views of San Francisco feature seductive lounging nooks encircling a fire pit.
Sultry bedrooms offer the perfect excuse for sleeping in with that special someone. Nestled in an alcove above the bed is a small fireplace surrounded by metallic glazed walls that were custom created by Chicago-based artist Charles Nitti to resemble sheets of metal. Nitti is renowned for utilizing the design technique of “trompe l’oeil” – meaning “to fool the eye.” Spacious bathrooms have smooth, curvaceous walls that lead to walk-in showers.
The Grande Penthouse boasts two skylights and the original stamped concrete 15-feet ceilings dating back to the 1930s when this floor was first constructed. Sculpted curved wooden walls divide the living and sleeping spaces. An expansive wet bar is adjacent to a large wall covered in fierce black and white marble, transforming the area into an understated gallery.
Rates for the two additional G Terrace Penthouses (756 and 795 sq. ft.) start at $699; rates for the Grande Penthouse (1232 sq. ft.) start at $1899 per night. For more information and reservations, call (877) 828-4478 or visit www.hotelgsanfrancisco.com.
