RLH Corporation signed the company’s first Signature hotel since the brand’s refresh was introduced last year.

The Signature San Francisco will be located in the SOMA district, and is being revitalized and repositioned from a dated hotel into a new boutique hotel experience through focused renovations to its guestrooms and common areas. The property consists of 34 guestrooms, including two suites, and will be outfitted with mid-century modern furniture, new textures and complementary design elements to craft a retro-modern feel. 

“Signature San Francisco is the ideal property for our first re-designed Signature hotel,” Amanda Marcello, VP of brand management for Signature at RLH Corporation, said in a statement. “With distinctive mid-century modern design, Signature’s design intent and brand elements help a variety of assets gain modern style, market appeal and a differentiated brand identity, positioning properties to gain rate elasticity, increase revenues, garner customer attention and significantly improve return on invested capital for our hotel owners.”
