San Francisco Hotel Celebrates Golden Gate Bridge

San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge will turn 75 later this month, so the Hotel Palomar San Francisco is launching a dedicated suite to celebrate the occassion. 

The fifth-floor suite (No. 512) has a large photo of the bridge across the exterior doors and walls, and an opaque decal across the room's five bay window (which can also be seen from outside).  

Other cool touches in the room include a lampshade with historic photos from 1937, when the bridge was being built. A wire art sculpture of the Golden Gate Bridge hangs on the bathroom wall and special pillows were created with photos of the bridge in the late 1930s.

The nightstands and coffee table were created by local San Francisco artist and Bay Area native, Richard Bulan, and are all made out of Golden Gate Bridge steel. (Literally: Bulan makes furniture out of metal taken off the Golden Gate Bridge.)

Guests who book the suite can get a complimentary Golden Gate cocktail from the hotel's Fifth Floor Restaurant, as well as a Golden Gate Bridge: History and Design of an Icon book by Ira Bruce Nadel and Donald MacDonald, and Hotel Palomar luggage tags celebrating the 75th anniversary.

The suite is available rough December 31. The hotel is located at 12 4th St. in San Francisco. Visit www.hotelpalomar-sf.com for more information.
