Southern Hospitality Services Opens San Francisco Bay’s First Home2 Suites by Hilton

USA, San Francisco, California. July 30, 2019

Home2 Suites by Hilton, part of Hilton's (NYSE: HLT) All Suites portfolio, announced today its newest property and the first open hotel built through modular construction in Bay Area history, the Home2 Suites by Hilton San Francisco Airport North. Designed for travelers who want to maintain their normal routine, the hotel features 155 suites and a range of value, tech-focused and eco-conscious amenities. Through an efficient modular building process, the hotel will meet San Francisco's booming tourism demand, where already-strong tourism numbers grew by 3 percent in 2018 to a record 26.3 million visitors.*

"Thanks to its high demand but equally high barriers to entry, San Francisco is an ideal market to introduce our cutting-edge modular build concept," said Adrian Kurre, global head, Home2 Suites by Hilton. "Through this innovative building process, we were able to efficiently offer guests the value-added amenities, central location and unique modern design that both business and leisure travelers expect when visiting the ‘City by the Bay.'"

Owned by Sri Krishna Enterprises Inc. and managed by Southern Hospitality Services, Home2 Suites by Hilton San Francisco Airport North offers all-suite accommodations with fully-accessorized kitchens and modular furniture, providing guests the flexibility to customize their suite to their style and preference. The hotel also features complimentary internet, inviting communal spaces, and trademark Home2 Suites amenities such as Spin2 Cycle, a combined laundry and fitness area, Home2 MKT for grab-and-go items, and the Inspired Table, a complimentary daily breakfast that includes more than 400 potential combinations. Guests can also enjoy a gaming room. Home2 Suites by Hilton San Francisco Airport North is pet friendly.

Not only is the property the first modular-build hotel in the Bay Area, it is also the first of its kind in the Home2 Suites by Hilton portfolio. Modular construction is a process in which a project is built off-site in a controlled environment to produce "modules" which are then assembled on location. This building technique allows for dramatically expedited speed to market without sacrificing quality, as the hotel progressed from groundbreaking to opening in just 16 months, a fraction of the typical construction duration in the Bay Area. In addition to construction efficiency, eco-conscious guests of the hotel will be thrilled to see several sustainability measures above the standards of the already green Home2 Suites by Hilton brand, including solar panels which produce close to 50 percent of the hotel's energy and a bio-retention pond that filters water run-off to reduce the property's overall carbon footprint.

Located at 550 Gateway Blvd South, just off US-101, Home2 Suites by Hilton San Francisco Airport North offers guests convenient access to South San Francisco dining and shopping, downtown San Francisco, the Moscone Center and nearby transportation centers including BART and Caltrain. A complimentary shuttle service to San Francisco International Airport is also available.

Home2 Suites by Hilton San Francisco Airport North is part of Hilton Honors®, the award-winning guest-loyalty program for Hilton's 17 distinct hotel brands.

Architecture & Design: Biophilic Design

The hospitality industry is constantly evolving to meet and exceed guest expectations. As a result, hotels are always on the lookout for new ways to improve the guest experience, and architecture and design is an essential part of this equation. Bold design is often the most effective way to make an exceptional first impression - an impression guests use to distinguish between brands. One design trend that is being embraced worldwide has become known as “Biophilic Design.” Biophilic design is based on the concept of biophilia, which is the theory that human beings have an innate tendency to seek out nature, natural elements, and natural forms. Biophilic design is more than hotels simply adding a surplus of plants; it involves incorporating specific design elements into a hotel in order to imbue it with a sense of wellness and well-being. Some of those elements include exposure to natural lighting; views of nature and rooms with a view; natural architectural patterns; salvaged or reclaimed woods of all types; reclaimed metals; sustainably sourced stone; living green walls and vertical gardens; and direct and indirect exposure to nature. Hotels that have incorporated biophilic design into their properties are reaping the benefits associated with this trend including reduced stress responses, better air quality, lower energy costs, and more positive guest reviews. Biophilic design has also been shown to improve guest moods and to satisfy consumer demand for environmental responsibility. Savvy hotel owners and managers are aware that nature-inspired elements enhance their guests' comfort and well-being, which is why this trend is becoming so prevalent. Biophilic design is just one topic in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
