Thanks to the Chase Center, Oracle Park and a slew of luxury condos, Mission Bay has grown into a real San Francisco hot spot. Sports, music, restaurants and beautiful seaside views keep tourists coming to the location, and pretty soon, they can stay there.
With plans to debut this winter, the Luma Hotel San Francisco is set to be Mission Bay’s first hotel, and we’ve got a sneak peek into the plans.
“Our team is elated to shine a light on the waterfront and park-filled Mission Bay, and open Luma Hotel SF in the new heart of the city,” General Manager Brian Fenwick is quoted in a press release. “Our goal is to energize the Mission Bay area and redefine what it means to be an urban destination, curating a modern space where art, design, local partnerships and thoughtfully-crafted technology blend together with warm hospitality. We look forward to welcoming travelers and the local community this winter.”
Designed by Hornberger and Worstell, the Luma Hotel San Francisco will keep sunny and bright with glass-enclosed gathering spaces and floor-to-ceiling windows in every guest room. It’s name is a nod to this light and airy vibe, which will be further emphasized by a podium wrapped with back-lit, laser-cut panels designed to emulate the crystalline structure of salt found in the salt ponds of Mission Bay itself. The panels will light up each night in a variety of ever-changing colors, drawing attention while conjuring an artistic atmosphere.
The space will be filled with large-scale art installations by local artist Jim Campbell, while those room windows will offer beautiful views of the bay and the city.
Once completed, the Luma will boast 7,000 square feet of meeting and event space, a large penthouse suite, and a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a rooftop bar and lounge with sweeping views. Luma will also tap the local community to create custom cocktail and coffee menus that showcase San Francisco’s talented bartenders, roasters and more.
Speaking of community, Luma will also benefit from San Francisco’s Central Subway Project which plans to create transportation options that will connect Luma's neighborhood with Union Square, Chinatown and other city-wide landmarks and places of interest.
It’s going to be a bright spot on the ever-evolving Mission Bay scene. Stay tuned for more details and learn more at lumahotelsf.com.
