As an Atlanta native, I get to see San Francisco with a fresh set of eyes. Before relocating here, I was able to stay in various hotels across the city and experience each of their atmospheres. Rarely are natives of a city able to step back and become a tourist in their hometown for a day, so my experience is less tainted by my knowledge of the area.
I've stayed at the beautiful and luxurious Four Seasons- a very classic hotel, timeless. The Omni was fabulous and the Hyatt Regency was impressive, as always. Last weekend I visited a hotel unlike any I've been to before and I was thoroughly impressed.The Hotel Zeppelin is modern, elegant luxury wearing a purple fur coat and metallic platforms. Boutique hotels are all the buzz right now, and mainstream is not a friend of San Francisco's. The Hotel Zeppelin shows guests you can pull off "eclectic" in style.
The appearance could best be described as a sophisticated view of glam rock n' roll. Upon entering, you are surrounded by mod portrait photography and unique light fixtures, exposed dark brick and standout vintage looking furniture. The bar and lounge is sophisticated and sleek and the downstairs hangout area is a much more inviting approach at hospitality than hotels typically take. All decorated glamorously, there are basketball hoops and televisions. A giant peace sign sculpture collage is perfect for cute pictures.
The hotel's marketing is similar in nature- fresh, diverse, trendsetting and edgy. Their Instagram account re-posts several of their guest's photos- all resembling Tumblr or Pinterest hits. The guests appear to be equally as trendsetting- mostly young, hip, bright individuals who want to have a good time and look great doing so.
