The brand debuted its latest property in San Francisco, California. The hotel’s design is inspired by nature and interwoven with the brand’s mission to create properties with a focus on sustainability. The nature theme can also be seen in the design elements throughout the property, from the lobby floor made from lumber salvaged from industrial buildings to its terracotta accents, exposed brick and rustic stones.

The property features 186 rooms with 14 suites. The waterfront suites offer 180-degree window views that showcase the Bay Bridge and Embarcardero with a private wet bar. The studio suites, meanwhile, offer private outdoor terraces. The pièce de résistance of the hotel, however, is the Ferry House Suite on the top floor, which includes a master bedroom with two separate bathrooms, a wet bar, living-room and spacious private terrace.
