San Francisco’s Storied Hotel Triton Launches Multi-Million Dollar Renovation to Be Completed by October 2018

USA, San Francisco, California. July 25, 2018

Hotel Triton announces its multi-million-dollar property renovation
and redesign today, along with all new branding. Located at the center
of the Grant Avenue shopping corridor - just steps away from the
Financial District and Union Square - the historic boutique hotel
entrusted Hospitality Design Awards winner Liubasha Rose of creative
firm Rose Ink Workshop to oversee the design overhaul and transformation
of the brand.

Targeting the property's 140 guest rooms and bathrooms as well as the
lobby, the contemporary redesign - set to be complete by October 2018 -
delivers a total property transformation to appeal to an eclectic group
of discerning international travelers and Bay Area locals.

Inspired by the property's cultural legacy, Liubasha aimed to create
bright, energizing spaces that draw from worldly culture and local
artifacts, delivering a space that brings together the comfort of a home
and the style of a boutique hotel.

“We were inspired by the Danish concept of Hygge, which is the
feeling of coziness and comfort,” says Rose. “It was important for us to
infuse this element of contentment and well-being throughout the
property, without forgoing elegance and sophistication.”

The rooms and suites feature Carrera marble finishes, custom furniture and elevated drapery; A standard room features a decorative lounge chair and round dining table, custom upholstered bench, a marble vanity with a custom decorative mirror, and Frette linens. Rose Ink Workshop contributed custom designed lighting fixtures, fabrics, and furniture. Bathrooms, showers and guestroom entryways, meanwhile, are finished with Carrera marble and include Waterworks plumbing fixtures.

Recently completed in June, the lobby similarly pulls through the modern luxury approach, featuring Bordiglio marble floor, wood ceiling beams, and a custom glass-blown chandelier. The space boasts a globally-curated selection of art and eclectic pieces of furniture, including a collection of Nigerian Yoruba Crowns and a display case filled with minerals from around the world, including sulfur and pink opal.

Most notably, the lobby features a mural that was serendipitously discovered behind the walls during the hotel's demolition. Created by Persian artist Jon Oshanna in the 1940s, the artwork beautifully depicts Mission Dolores, San Francisco's oldest intact Mission in California, built in 1776 (and the oldest building in San Francisco), as well as City Hall.

With an evolved brand approach, the reinvigorated Hotel Triton reestablishes itself as a must-see cultural destination in the heart of San Francisco.

Hotel Law: A Labor Crisis and Cyber Security

According to a recent study, the hospitality industry accounted for 2.9 trillion dollars in sales and in the U.S. alone, was responsible for 1 in 9 jobs. In an industry of that scope and dimension, legal issues touch every aspect of a hotel's operation, and legal services are required in order to conform to all prevailing laws and regulations. Though not all hotels face the same issues, there are some industry-wide subjects that are of concern more broadly. One of those matters is the issue of immigration and how it affects the ability of hotels to recruit qualified employees. The hotel industry is currently facing a labor crisis; the U.S. Labor Department estimates that there are 600,000 unfilled jobs in the industry. Part of the problem contributing to this labor shortage is the lack of H2B visas for low-skilled workers, combined with the difficulty in obtaining J-1 visas for temporary workers. Because comprehensive immigration reform is not being addressed politically, hotel managers expect things are going to get worse before they get better. Corporate cyber security is another major legal issue the industry must address. Hotels are under enormous pressure in this area given the large volume of customer financial transactions they handle daily. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission had the power to regulate corporate cyber security, so it is incumbent on hotels to establish data security programs in order to prevent data breaches. The lack of such programs could cause hotels to face legal threats from government agencies, class action lawsuits, and damage to their brand image if a data breach should occur. These are just two of the critical issues that the December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
