Hotel Z opens in San Diego

J Street Hospitality opened the Hotel Z, a new 96-room select service boutique hotel located in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter. The hotel was recently acquired by Columbia Properties, a commercial real estate investment company, and will be operated by its sister company, Pineapple Hospitality Company.

The newly opened hotel was an adaptive reuse project completed by J Street Hospitality, which involved the conversion of a four-story, 221-unit multifamily residential building into a limited-service boutique hotel with 96 guestrooms. The conversion included the replacement of all mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, as well as a complete renovation of guestrooms, corridors and public areas. 

“We are thrilled to unveil the newly transformed Hotel Z in downtown San Diego and look forward to completing additional development projects in the area,” said Sajan Hansji, president, J Street Hospitality.  “It is especially rewarding to realize the successful opening and sale of this challenging endeavor."
