In the Hotel Zetta’s window, a live countdown clock is ticking the seconds until February 18, when the Viceroy Hotel Group will land in San Francisco. The first new hotel in SF in five years, the Zetta is a stylish, design-driven property on 5th Street in the heart of SoMa, not far from Union Square. The city is positively buzzing about the Zetta; the former Hotel Milano was transformed into an urban retreat with recycled design elements, and a host of tech-savvy amenities.
The 116 guest rooms come with Illy espresso machines, in-room work spaces, pillow top beds, and Neil George bath products. With cool meeting spaces and an interactive lobby, the hotel aims to be a hub for the city’s tech innovators, as well. There will be a state-of-the-art fitness center with Technogym equipment, and access to a full-service spa in the adjacent Westfield Shopping Center. Expect a destination restaurant to open later in the year. For more information, visit www.hotelzetta.com.
