The Fielding hotel upgraded, to re-open as Hotel G in Q2 2014

Hotel G announced its slated opening in downtown San Francisco this spring, following an extensive redesign to all 13 floors and 153 guestrooms. The property, originally built in 1909 as The Fielding hotel, is located on the corner of Geary and Mason Street near the city's Union Square neighborhood.

When the property opens, guestrooms at Hotel G will have a more natural aesthetic. Fog colored walls, wood finishes and earthy fabrics and textiles contrast with clean lines, pops of color and fair-trade accents and art. The furniture pays homage to the hotel's past with pieces ranging from Victorian settees, vintage schoolhouse chairs, banker's lamps and mid-century writing desks. Meanwhile, the amenities honor today's modern necessities, including flat-screen SMART TVs, docking stations, Nespresso coffee makers and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Downstairs, the lobby will have a modern look and feel. Frosted glass walls, patchwork tiled floors and two oversized metallic reception desks will be included underneath double heighted ceilings. Meanwhile, a vintage courthouse bench and colorful armchairs will provide nooks to congregate or relax.

Additional hotel amenities will include a second floor gym and nearby meeting room.

The original Fielding hotel had 112 rooms across eight floors before the additional five floors were added in 1939. During this transformation, many of the original hotel features will remain intact, including the cast iron staircase in guest corridor, wood and concrete flooring in all the rooms and hallways, and the building's original, exterior façade.

Hotel G San Francisco will have rooms that include neutral color palettes and simplistic design with vintage and custom-made furniture. Property amenities will include a fitness center, meeting room, complimentary WiFi, 24-hour front desk service, "Beer and Bites" social hours and complimentary morning car services. Located 30 minutes from San Francisco and Oakland International airports, nearby attractions include Union Square, Moscone Center, San Francisco's Museum of Modern Art, Chinatown and AT&T Park.
