The upcoming InterContinental San Diego, scheduled to open this September, is being crafted by Torrance, California-based design practice Linda Snyder Associates.

The property will have floor-to-ceiling windows in the guestrooms, meeting spaces and public areas to bring the outdoors in, and maximize the waterfront views and natural light.

In total, the property will have 400 rooms, including 24 suites. All rooms will have water views.

InterContinental San Diego will have five dining venues overlooking the water, including Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, a lobby-level restaurant with an open kitchen; 19th floor rooftop bar; pool bar; and café.

The 4th floor rooftop pool and sun deck will have bay and sunset views with space for lounging.

The health and wellness center overlooking the bay will have a personalized video wall and outdoor yoga terrace.

The lobby-level Club InterContinental lounge will have a private outdoor terrace.

For events, the property will have 35,000 square feet of flexible indoor space with natural light, and 60,000 square feet of outdoor space including multiple bay view terraces overlooking Lane Field Park. The Pacific Ballroom will be able to host events up to 1,500 in the 12,000-square-foot space with full-length windows framing Santa Fe Depot and the downtown cityscape.

Located on the historic grounds of Lane Field—the former baseball stadium of the San Diego Padres from 1936 through 1957—the hotel is near the Embarcadero, which docks both the USS Midway and Maritime Museum of San Diego. It is also located near Little Italy, San Diego Convention Center, Gaslamp Quarter and Seaport Village.
