SH Hotels & Resorts brand Treehouse Hotels is heading to the USA for the first time with a new site set to open in Sunnyvale, California in late 2023.

The environmentally-conscious marque’s latest expansion sees a 254-key site opening in the high-tech heart of Silicon Valley.

Eco impact reduction

Treehouse Hotel Sunnyvale will repurpose several existing structures and elevate a new six-storey building constructed offsite using modular methods that dramatically reduce environmental impact and waste.

Trees felled in construction are reclaimed and crafted by local artists into socially conscious, nature-themed sculptures fashioned onsite. From hand-crafted accents, secret nooks, playful angles, hammocks and hideaways and surprisingly placed lookouts, every element of the adaptive reuse project deliberately blurs the boundaries between inside and out.

Quirky touches

The majority of rooms, including 21 suites, provide private outdoor spaces, from ground floor patios to balconies and terraces on the upper floors. Interiors will include soft sofas built into rough-hewn wooden bookcases, farm table distressed wooden desks and wood ceiling beams, colourful pillows and quirky quilts.

Amenities encompass a casual café with indoor and outdoor seating, a garden offering games and a beer garden, a courtyard pool complete with cabanas, hot tub, pizza oven and state-of-the-art fitness facility. Three meeting rooms inside the hotel complement an expansive event space crafted from a classic tilt-up rustic barn, complete with an outdoor pre-function space flowing into a lawn that can be tented to accommodate increased capacity.

Playful property

Brand founder and Starwood Capital Group chairman and CEO, Barry Sternlicht, said: “Sunnyvale is the epicentre of the bold ideas, disruptive technology, imagination and innovation that make Silicon Valley an icon and inspiration for the world.

“Every inch of this playful property, from mismatched materials to secret nooks and unexpected artwork, creatively combines the energy and intensity of Silicon Valley’s high-tech culture with the simpler, older, more natural charms of the Santa Clara Valley’s pre-internet era.”

Treehouse will be following up this US entry with another, Treehouse Brickell, which will arrive in Miami in Q1 2025. The 191-room site will be housed across two towers.
