San Diego, California
A mixed-use high-rise, the Omni San Diego Hotel and Metropolitan contains a four-star business hotel with meeting facilities, luxury residences and enclosed parking. This 33-story, 558,000 square foot tower includes 511 guestrooms, a grand ballroom, multiple meeting rooms, a three-meal restaurant, fitness center, enclosed parking for 180 cars, and 37 luxury condominium apartments.
The design takes advantage of the benign San Diego climate and maximize indoor/outdoor relationships for both the hotel and residential functions. The ground-level restaurant opens on to a public plaza by way of a continuous, retractable glass wall. An elevated terrace provides a function space for 250 guests, flexible pre-function space, and a swimming pool with sun deck and spa. The residences have access to a 22nd floor rooftop terrace with function space, swimming pool, spa, and outdoor fireplace.
The building occupies approximately a one-acre site within walking distance of the newly expanded San Diego Convention Center and directly adjacent to Petco Park, which is accessible from the hotel by way of a cable-stayed pedestrian bridge.
