San Francisco is a city that's constantly in flux. So, too, are its hotels, including the Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco, which has just completed an extensive makeover of its fifth-floor meeting space, it announced today.

Part of a $20 million transformation that will conclude in spring 2018 with the renovation of its 277 guest rooms and suites, the project encompasses more than 15,000 square feet of meeting space, including the 6,960-square-foot Veranda Ballroom -- attached to which is the 3,150-square-foot Veranda Terrace, the city's only outdoor space attached to a meeting room -- and the addition of a new executive boardroom, called the SoMa Suite.

All spaces have been updated with a new color palette consisting of blues, purples, and greys; custom carpets inspired by the Pacific Ocean, as well as San Francisco's fog and redwood trees; new drapery evocative of mist; and new wood furniture made from hand-finished walnut slabs and cerused oak. 

"Guests are immediately transfixed by the thoughtful design that draws from San Francisco's natural beauty -- the fog, mist, redwood trees, and waters of the Pacific Ocean," said General Manager Doug Housley. "We're very proud of the look and feel that the redesign brings to Four Seasons and how it elevates the entire stature of the hotel and the warm and intuitive service we are known for."
