ACRON Group Completes $30 Million Renovation of Sheraton Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco

San Francisco, June 27, 2019 - Sheraton Fisherman’s Wharf, a reimagined destination hotel offering outstanding service and inspired amenities, is pleased to announce the completion of its $30 million property redesign which includes a reconfigured lobby and bar, upgrades to all 531 guest rooms and suites, and the addition of a Sheraton Club Lounge.

 

Sheraton Fisherman’s Wharf is the first and only Marriott property in the area to offer a Club Lounge experience and combined lobby and bar concept to guests. Also part of the renovation is the opening of Northpoint Bar & Restaurant, an extension of the hotel’s redesigned lobby experience, where guests are encouraged to sip craft cocktails and local wines and beers while noshing on cuisine that pays tribute to the area’s renowned fresh seafood in an inviting and convivial setting.

 

With architecture by Bull Stockwell Allen and interior design by Looney & Associates, the Sheraton Club Lounge, new public spaces, refreshed guest rooms and Northpoint Bar & Restaurant offer a modern experience for guests and locals, providing a comfortable, inviting and stylish setting to meet and relax. Subtle maritime-themed design elements have been weaved into the interior, drawing upon the historical influences of the surrounding public spaces. Hues of deep blues, vibrant aqua, and muted greys are contrasted with accents of deep-sea greens and chartreuse. Unexpected combinations of varied wood tones and textured tilework add a sleek, clean aesthetic to the overall space, imparting a
warm and welcoming first impression to guests.

 

All guest rooms were renovated with comfort and convenience in mind. Each room was updated with new carpet and paint, case goods, blackout and sheer blinds, seating areas, and flat-screen televisions. Sleek, updated furnishings include dark wood headboards with integrated sconces and large desk areas equipped with electrical outlets and two-line speaker phones. Brass accents and artwork of famed San Francisco landmarks complete the room. All bathrooms have been updated with modern fixtures and three-function showerheads in addition to new vanities and commodes.

 

“The hotel has undergone a complete transformation,” said Bruce Carlton, general manager of Sheraton Fisherman’s Wharf. “All of the associates here at the property are excited to offer an elevated guest experience. The completion of the recent renovations, from guest arrival to in-room comfort and amenities, to dining and entertainment, allow us to provide a new level of service and comfort. Our hope is that Northpoint Bar & Restaurant not only becomes a dining destination for our hotel guests, but also a place within our community where locals can frequent regularly to enjoy a great meal and drinks.”

An extension of the hotel’s new lobby experience, Northpoint Bar & Restaurant welcomes locals and travelers alike to linger over creative craft cocktails, local brews, and California wines while enjoying locally-inspired dishes created by Chef Lyman. The menu pays tribute to Fisherman’s Wharf’s world-renowned fresh seafood by highlighting the bounty of the nearby Pacific Ocean and area purveyors while reflecting modern culinary trends.
