SAN FRANCISCO—Le Méridien San Francisco has completed a $3.5-million renovation of its public spaces.

As a part of the renovation, the hotel lobby was transformed into the brand’s signature Le Méridien Hub, which consists of four elements: large-scale artwork in high impact areas; the sensory experience, illustrated through the brand’s signature scent, sound and use of light; UNLOCK ART program, featuring artist designed key card collections that offer access to Le Méridien affiliated contemporary cultural centers in the city; and a 24-hour curated soundtrack.  In addition, a master barista, a trained coffee barista, serves up coffee concoctions for guests.

The hotel also revitalized its meeting spaces and re-imagined the hotel restaurant, Park Grill and Bar333. The elaborate ceiling and back wall mirror design, modeled after San Francisco’s streets, “adds an element of exploration for the guest, creating a moment of discovery” according to General Manager Pradeep Bobba.

The hotel will undergo additional renovations in 2014 to enhance its guest tower.
