Opening this week in San Francisco is Hotel Zetta.  The hotel offers 116 rooms and suites reminiscent of a New York City hip boutique hotel. Rooms are stuffed to the hilt with a bevy of high-tech conveniences, from Internet-ready Samsung 46” smart TV’s with access to apps like Facebook, Netflix, Twitter, to G-Link docking stations that let you wirelessly stream videos from your mobile devices to your TV. The amenity-rich urban-styled rooms elevate downtime with down comforters and imported linens atop sumptuous pillow top beds, complimentary Neil George bath and body amenities, and Illy coffee espresso machines, one of our favorites. Each room's unique quality is accented with a one-of-a-kind tapestry; a stunning collage of antique Oriental rugs.

Hotel Zetta offers 2,760 square feet of event space, three state-of-the-art meeting rooms and a chic lobby lounge. Each eclectic meeting space was built from the ground up to inspire creativity and optimize productivity, whether hosting a board meeting at the generous-sized conference table in the Lumen Room, hosting press launches and product pitches in the Demo Room or brainstorming campaign ideas over drinks and video games in the Play Lounge.  The hotel’s meeting rooms feature a range of extras, from built-in video connectivity for visual presentations and Polycom to permanent white-erase boards and cork-covered walls for brainstorming sessions—everything you need to make your next board meeting, brainstorming session, focus group or product launch a success.
