Dawson Design Associates designs Hotel Zephyr

Following the completion of a $32-million renovation, Davidson Hotels and Resorts unveiled Hotel Zephyr in San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf. One of the property’s features is “The Yard,” an 11,600-square-foot outdoor lounge that has interactive elements.

Dawson Design Associates was involved in the design of the property.

The Yard marries the hotel’s maritime theme and the personality of sailors with an abundance of larger-than-life-sized games, including Connect-Four, Jenga, tube ping-pong and a tabletop labyrinth maze. For guests looking for relaxation, The Yard offers places to lay back. There are fire pits and shipping crates overrun with lush plants, and a marina-inspired water feature, invoking the feeling of a garden that has sprung up in the middle of a shipyard.

As the only waterfront hotel in Fisherman’s Wharf, the property has six newly constructed waterfront suites, with many rooms offering direct views of the San Francisco Bay and cityscapes. Select guest quarters are outfitted with dart boards and backgammon. All quarters include interactive media streaming via G-Link to stream games and other media from laptops or handheld mobile devices and tablets directly to the smart TVs.

Hotel Zephyr is in the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf and is the closest property to Pier 39. It is within walking distance to the Alcatraz ferries, Ghirardelli Square and close to transportation options, including the famed San Francisco cable cars.
