Embassy Suites San Diego Bay - Downtown completes $8.5M renovation

Embassy Suites completed the renovation of the Embassy Suites San Diego Bay – Downtown. The $8.5-million project includes total restoration of the property’s atrium and lobby areas, completed updates to 341 guestrooms, a revamped fitness center and re-design of the meeting spaces, hallways and guest areas.

The most prominent element of the renovation project is the newly designed atrium and lobby, where guests will find entirely new flooring, lounge decor and furniture, as well as a new fountain, a large screen TV and a replica of the famous sculpture, BIRD. When arriving, visitors will be welcomed by a brand new front desk area and a concierge and business center.

For guests looking to unwind and socialize, the atrium’s newly replaced skylight improves the area’s natural lighting. Across the atrium, guests will find dining options, including the only Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins in the downtown area, along with PFC Bar & Grill, which offers seafood and American fare.
