Luxury hotel completes redesign with show-stopping penthouse master suite
Topping off a full interior renovation, the InterContinental San Francisco Hotel reveals an entirely redesigned Presidential Suite—an impressive 2,000 square-foot penthouse luxury suite located on the property’s 31st and 32nd floors
The expansive and light-filled Presidential Suite features a pair of private outdoor terraces with sweeping cityscapes, dining room with seating for eight, plush living room with floor-to-ceiling windows, powder room, and a luxurious master suite, complete with two walk-in wardrobes and two master baths, the first of which features a jacuzzi, shower, and bidet, while the second includes a separate shower and tub
“We are thrilled to debut the newly redesigned Presidential Suite, which marks the culmination of our year-long interior renovation project,” said General Manager of InterContinental San Francisco Hotel, Peter Koehler. “Following this dedicated refresh, the thoughtfully curated suite boasts designer finishes, luxe amenities, integrated technologies, and unparalleled views of San Francisco, and we are excited to provide this highly memorable guest suite as an exclusive option to our esteemed clientele.”
The InterContinental San Francisco Hotel’s Presidential Suite evokes a streamlined sophistication and grandeur that suits its savvy San Francisco guests. The redesign from Kiko Singh of BraytonHughes Design Studios accentuates the Presidential Suite’s stunning skyline views, introducing a refined color palate with tailored finishes that run throughout the suite’s upholstery, textile wall hangings, light fixtures, artwork, and more. Notable design features include a black and white stone floor inspired by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and a wall of stained wood that acts a stark backdrop to showcase the suite’s art collection. Bookended by floor to ceiling windows, natural light fills both levels of the suite. Details that highlight the suite’s residential inspiration include a Nero Marquina marble countertop and fireplace, a custom de Gournay gold leaf wallcovering in the master bedroom, and one-of-a-kind artwork such as vintage silk scarves from famed San Francisco retailer Gump’s adorning the upstairs landing. Oversized wingback chairs and plush couches provide ample seating for business meetings, social gatherings, or personal relaxation, and the appliances throughout—including televisions integrated into the bathroom mirrors—allow guests to stay connected in style.
“Today’s cosmopolitan jetsetters and business travelers seek respite in a setting that is not just luxurious, but that also tells a good story,” said Kiko Singh, BraytonHughes Design Studios Principal. “We designed the Presidential Suite as an extension of the art-focused narrative that guests experience in other parts of the hotel, from the public spaces showcasing local art inspired by San Francisco throughout the decades to guestrooms referencing the chic residential experience of life in the city. With this new design, the Presidential Suite provides another layer to enrich the story, pulsing with the sharp artistic energy of the vibrant SoMa district.”
In additional to top-of-the-line amenities and state-of-the-art technology, the Presidential Suite includes daily maid service, one-hour suit pressing, early check-in and late check-out, and complimentary wireless Internet access.
