In the heart of the city's gallery district and directly across from the ornate Chinatown dragon-gate entrance is Hotel Triton. Geared for the artistic, avant garde, and corporate travelers, this hotel is a showcase of local San Francisco artists.
The focal point of the entrance are two dramatic floor-to-ceiling sculptural shaped pillars of gold, teal and purple. The walls are painted in pastel hues with a dreamlike, mythological mural that flows over the wall and ceiling; playful lines and loose brush strokes reveal subtle images of human figures, sea life and triton shells. Handcrafted lamps and tables complete the artistic ambiance.
Guestrooms are like none other in San Francisco--adorned with hand-painted wall finishes, beds with camel-back headboards upholstered in dark navy and khaki stripes, lavish crisp white duvet covers, and navy blue iridescent throw pillows. Many rooms feature this same bed style with two double beds. A uniquely stylized, oversized daybed covered with a small light blue and white pin stripe serves as a couch for travelers who entertain clients/guests in their room. There are two design schemes for the painted walls; light yellow and blue oversized diamonds hand painted on the walls, or sponge painted with pink and iridescent gold. Furniture is custom designed with geometric shapes and made of stained mahogany. All bathrooms have bathtubs, dark blue and white tiles, and marble sinks with full mirrors.
The King Triton Suite has a king-size bed, big-screen television complete with VCR, stereo, and CD player, jacuzzi, and a fully-stocked honor bar.
Adjacent European-style restaurants; Cafe Aioli, a restaurant like an art gallery serves light fare and room service, while Cafe de la Presse serves cafe fare and has a capuccino bar in the middle of the restaurant. Both serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.
