The Axiom Hotel opens in San Francisco

Host Hotels & Resorts opened the Axiom Hotel in San Francisco. Located at the city's cable car turnaround, the 152-room boutique hotel is managed by Kokua Hospitality, and was designed by New York City-based Stonehill & Taylor.

A LEED-certified project, Axiom offers iPad-assisted check-in, complimentary fiber optic Wi-Fi, and plug-ins to mobile devices. Each room of the hotel has a distinctive configuration based on size and floorplan, with four room choices named after tech bytes including Nano & Mono Queen, Meta Queen, Mono King and E-King. The hotel is also pet friendly.

“We are thrilled to open our doors to the streets of San Francisco,” said Garry Cox, GM of the hotel. “Our team has worked tirelessly to transform this historic building into a cutting-edge property that’s literally at the axiom of history and the digital revolution.”
