SOMA Mission Bay Hotel
Sam Francisco, California
The new 250-guestroom SOMA Mission Bay Hotel will be a distinctive yet complimentary addition to the Mission Bay Block-1 neighborhood. Located at the corner of 3rd and Channel Streets, the hotel includes 10,000 square feet of a collaboration work/meeting space, a marketplace café, rooftop terrace/community space with a bar and parking for 36 cars.
The hotel has a 40-foot high street-edge defining podium element containing public and back-of-house spaces, and a taller tower element containing guestrooms and guest suites. The “L” shaped guestroom tower is organized in two (2) perpendicular wings rising 16 stories. Typical guestrooms are provided with generous picture windows that allow for guestroom suites to be located on the upper levels facing AT&T Park, Twin Peaks and the City landscape beyond.
The ground level sidewalk pedestrian experience is activated by the hotel’s public use space – the lobby gathering areas and marketplace café. The main public entrances for the hotel and marketplace café are located along the 3rd Street façade. The porte cochere and elevator to access to the rooftop community space enliven south-facing Channel Street. At the 3rd & Channel Street corner the hotel’s 40’ podium volumetrically defines a glass-enclosed, corner lobby and public gathering space – “The Community Living Room.”
