Keating Hotel Debuts New Meeting Space in Downtown San Diego

The Keating Hotel, located in downtown San Diego, has unveiled 3,000 square feet of new meeting space, it recently announced.

Located in the city's historic Mercantile Building, adjacent to the 35-room boutique hotel, the Keating's new conference center-style space includes four flexible meeting rooms ranging in size from 185 square feet to 850 square feet. All four are equipped with state-of-the-art meeting room technology, including interactive audiovisual equipment, an HD LCD projector and screen, high-speed wireless Internet access and modern, urban-inspired decor.

For more intimate meetings, the Keating will temporarily convert hotel suites into boardrooms, or rent out its ultramodern lounge, which features a state-of-the-art sound and video system, as well as a bar that serves Italian tapas, cocktails and wine.

Meeting space throughout the Keating comes with access to the hotel's exclusive food and beverage staff, which will design customized banquet menus and beverage pairings for planners and attendees under the direction of Executive Chef Brian Rutherford.

Once slated to become San Diego's Playboy Club, the Mercantile Building was built in 1892. Now home to its new event space, the Keating has resorted the building's interior to its original historic standard, with mahogany woodwork, high ceilings and red brick walls.
