Just steps from San Francisco’s theatre district and blocks from the city’s bustling Union Square neighborhood lies the historic Warwick Hotel. Many San Francisco history buffs may know that the Warwick Hotel was established in 1913 as The Maryland Hotel; back in its heyday, it was affectionately called “The House of Sunshine and Hospitality.” [Another interesting piece of trivia: The Warwick shares the same architect as The Coit Tower and City Hall, Arthur Brown Jr.]

Today is a new day, and although many things have changed, the Warwick continues to pay homage to that “House of Sunshine and Hospitality” with its recent $8 million renovation by renowned international design firm UXUS. The facelift features a fireplace with cozy seating areas, dramatic lighting and reinvented architectural details. Not to mention the newly launched dining and cocktail programs, Aveline and The European Bar & Lounge, are getting a lot of buzz. Refined, yet relaxing, the newly renovated Warwick evokes a serene feel layered with historical significance.
