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.

Human Resources: An Era of Transition

Traditionally, the human resource department administers five key areas within a hotel operation - compliance, compensation and benefits, organizational dynamics, selection and retention, and training and development. However, HR professionals are also presently involved in culture-building activities, as well as implementing new employee on-boarding practices and engagement initiatives. As a result, HR professionals have been elevated to senior leadership status, creating value and profit within their organization. Still, they continue to face some intractable issues, including a shrinking talent pool and the need to recruit top-notch employees who are empowered to provide outstanding customer service. In order to attract top-tier talent, one option is to take advantage of recruitment opportunities offered through colleges and universities, especially if they have a hospitality major. This pool of prospective employees is likely to be better educated and more enthusiastic than walk-in hires. Also, once hired, there could be additional training and development opportunities that stem from an association with a college or university. Continuing education courses, business conferences, seminars and online instruction - all can be a valuable source of employee development opportunities. In addition to meeting recruitment demands in the present, HR professionals must also be forward-thinking, anticipating the skills that will be needed in the future to meet guest expectations. One such skill that is becoming increasingly valued is “resilience”, the ability to “go with the flow” and not become overwhelmed by the disruptive influences  of change and reinvention. In an era of transition—new technologies, expanding markets, consolidation of brands and businesses, and modifications in people's values and lifestyles - the capacity to remain flexible, nimble and resilient is a valuable skill to possess. The March Hotel Business Review will examine some of the strategies that HR professionals are employing to ensure that their hotel operations continue to thrive.
