San Luis Obispo, Calif., gets new full-service luxury hotel

Hotel Cerro has opened as the first full-service luxury hotel in San Luis Obispo, Calif. Designed and built towards LEED Silver specifications, the property is located in downtown San Luis Obispo, incorporating two vintage brick storefronts on Garden Street as a part of the hotel’s main façade. 

Blending three décor influences, the property merges a modern aesthetic with 19th century industrial and Mission influences. There are also eco-friendly details and amenities.

Involved in the development/design of the property were Hotel Cerro managing partners Beverley and Shaun Matthews.

Hotel Cerro has 65 guestrooms and suites designed with a clean look that utilizes natural materials throughout.  

Spanning over 4,000 square feet, Spa Cerro only uses natural, vegan, paraben-free body care products from Little Barn Apothecary, EmerginC, Prima Fleur and Beespa for its treatments.  All products are available in the spa’s retail shop.

A key sustainable feature of Hotel Cerro is the Edible Garden.  Located on a second-floor enclosed terrace, the garden’s raised beds are devoted to growing organic herbs and vegetables for the hotel’s Brasserie SLO.  Most of the hotel’s rooms and suites overlook the Edible Garden.

Hotel Cerro is located at 1125 Garden Street between Marsh Street and Higuera Street in San Luis Obispo.
