LUMA Hotel San Francisco to open this March

by | 03 Feb 2022 | Design

The contemporary Hornberger + Worstell-designed property will open its doors in the rapidly evolving Mission Bay area, complete with large-scale installations by local artists.

This development aims to bring new energy to Mission Bay, introducing modern spaces suitable for San Francisco locals and visitors alike.

Energising the area

On opening in March 2022, LUMA Hotel San Francisco will host guests in an inviting spot adjacent to Oracle Park, Chase Center and UCSF Medical Center that’s also near several major technology companies. Significantly, this will be the area’s first hotel development, drawing on the area’s previously untapped potential for hospitality.

“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,” said Brian Fenwick, general manager.

“Our goal is to energise 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 travellers and the local community this winter.”

Innovative design and local art

This exciting new hotel is being designed by Hornberger + Worstell to include a glass-enclosed gathering space for guests and the community, along with a podium wrapped in back-lit laser-cut panels emulating the crystalline structure of salt found in Mission Bay’s salt ponds. The property will also reflect its name, which means bright light, by incorporating public and private guest spaces showcasing installations by talented local artists like Jim Campbell.

Guests can expect to stay in modern rooms and suites with floor-to-ceiling windows, privacy shades, and sweeping views of the skyline and bay. Other highlights of this forthcoming property include a spacious penthouse suite, state-of-the-art fitness centre with FORME technology, rooftop bar and lounge, and 7,000 sq ft of event space.

LUMA Hotel San Francisco will also benefit from its partnerships with the city’s community-driven cocktail and coffee scene.
