Andaz San Diego Debuts

Newly Renovated Art-Centric Private Party, Meeting & Events Space Now Open

SAN DIEGO, CA. December 26, 2016 – Andaz San Diego has unveiled a newly remodeled event space, “The Gallery.” The intimate social area with local flair, located on the lobby level of the Gaslamp Quarter Hotel, further elevates the hotel’s 18,000 square feet of meeting and event space.

“The Gallery” is the latest space to undergo a sleek renovation that accentuate the hotel’s modern style and ambiance. The enhanced area features a refined interior juxtaposed with contemporary masterpieces by locally renowned artists, making it a creative venue for special events, corporate meetings and holiday celebrations.
“We wanted to create a residential studio-inspired space fit for soirées and our own Andaz Salons, making this the perfect place to have the ultimate Andaz experience and meet, socialize and celebrate,” said Chris Wingerberg, Director of Sales, Events and Marketing. “The Gallery’s design vision highlights the artistic and modern feel of the hotel and our appreciation for the local artists here in San Diego.”

The centerpiece of the 2,209 square foot space is a mural designed by celebrated local photographer Christine Finkelson, whose work has been exhibited at the San Diego Museum of Art Artist’s Guild and at the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art (LACDA). An original piece by local artist and art gallery owner Alexander Salazar is also on display along with two 12-foot mesh giraffes that will live in “The Gallery’s” atrium. The room, which features complimentary Wi-Fi, can accommodate groups as small as ten people and as large as 200.
The reimagined venue, a former wine bar, was designed by Gensler, the acclaimed architecture and design firm that helmed Andaz San Diego’s recent $250,000 meeting space renovation.

Mobile Technology: Relentless Innovation

Technology has become a crucial component in attracting and retaining hotel guests, and the need to enhance a guest’s technology experience is driving a relentless pace of innovation. To meet and exceed guest expectations, 54% of hotels will spend more on technology in 2018, and mobile solutions in particular will top the list of capital investments. Many hotels are integrating mobile booking, mobile keys, mobile payments and mobile check-in into their operations. Other hotels are emphasizing the in-room experience, boosting bandwidth and upgrading flat screen TVs to more easily interface with guest mobile devices. And though not yet mainstream, there are many exciting technology developments on the near horizon. The Internet of Things (loT) is taking form in some places, and can be found in guest room control systems, voice activation systems, and in wearable sensors that can be used for access and payment options. Virtual reality headsets are available at some hotels so guests can enjoy virtual trips to exotic locations or if off-property, preview conference facilities and guest rooms. How long will it be before a hotel employs a fleet of robots for room service, or utilizes a hologram as a concierge, or installs gesture-controlled walls that feature interactive digital displays? Some hotels are already using augmented reality for translation services, or interactive wall maps, or even virtual décor. This pace of innovation is challenging property owners and brands to stay on top of the latest technology trends while still addressing current projects. The January Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in the mobile technology space.
